I've been following this forum for a while, knowing that I'd be getting a CRF150F for my son pretty soon. Monday was the day. My son and I drove up to the other side of Atlanta to meet a guy selling his wife's 2004 CRF150F on Craigslist. 30 minutes later we were strapping it to the trailer and my son was grinning from ear to ear! A hour later it was home, and together we did a little cleaning, a little checking, a little bit of tuning, fixed the kill switch, and then my son took it out for his maiden ride! He was as excited as a 12-year old boy could be on his nice "new" bike. It took longer than we expected to save up for it (a few financial setbacks along the way) so it's a big step up from his old Honda Z50. On the drive home we talked about a clutch, what it was, how it worked, how to use it...... and by the time later that afternoon when he rode it for the first time, it didn't take him more than a minute or two to get comfortable with the clutch. Will post some pictures shortly!
