My son is about 60 pounds also. Our '01 70 bogged a lot, so we went down 1 tooth. That helped, so we went down another - that worked even better. Now it will spin the tire where it just bogged before.

We also opened-up the air filter cover by cutting off the snorkel and making the hole about 1 1/2". It still covers the filter element from water and mud, and also lets you get that !#$%^& air cleaner cover on and off a lot easier!

What were they thinking when they designed the filter cover with a long snorkel so you couldn't get it out easily? Note to Honda - KEEP THE MAINTENANCE STUFF EASY TO DO!

Both are easy to reverse mods if you want to go back.
