    Pro senior is the one to get for racing if she is big enough for it. Use a 12 inch front wheel for stability.

    Adventures are lower tuned play bikes, if she's never ridden anything before they are ideal - pros are a bit fierce for learners. Adventures still ok for starting racing.

    Suggest you go along to a local club meeting first, talk to some dads and get a feel for things. Often bikes for sale there too.

    Oh, and get ready to learn all about centrifugal clutch maintenance...

    I'm in the same boat and now finally making the step for my lad from his PY50 to a KTM.

    I think the Pro senior is a good shout as it can be tamed down a little until the confidence is built.

    You best get ready for millions of questions then because when i get my lad a Pro Senior i'll have to sort the clutch.

    as i said to you before i put the springs from a mini in our pro snr

    what you should do is :-

    when you take the old stack of washers out put a cable tie through each stack so when your lad gets better you can return the stack of washers the same as they came out.

    Aslong as the cable tie is loose you can wash the washers by putting them in a container with some petrol in and give it a good shake then clean with a cloth

    Now i didnt do that (what a mistake)

    Pro Senior is likely to be the bike i'll get but have just been offered a SX Senior Adventure.

    Anyone have any thoughts on the SX Senior Adventure? Much difference between the two?
