Dirt bike seat height chart from adult size dirt bikes for heights of 182cm+ (6’+) down to kids size dirt bikes aged 3 to 4 years old. The seat height chart includes the height of the seat in centimetres and inches. Also included is a rough guide of engine size and cc for each seat height.
Motocross or scramble tracks on private property for your own use can start at roughly 1/2 acre. But you are best to acquire an area of land of an acre+ to create a reasonable sized personal motocross track. One acre of land will allow you to have features that include undulating land with dips, mounds and jumps. Planning permission may be required for the creation of the man-made jumps. Think about noise levels and the location of your motocross or scramble course.
How old should you be to ride a dirt bike does depend on the child. You may be surprised to learn that kids as young as 3 years old can ride small electric dirt bikes. Kids at the age of 4 are progressing to ride small petrol (Gas) dirt bikes safely. Perhaps with training wheels. Then kids aged 5-6 upwards are riding petrol (gas) 50cc dirt bikes without training wheels and even learning to take small jumps.
You may be surprised to learn that children as young as 3 years old can ride small dirt bikes, but I suggest at this age it’s on an electric dirt bike rather than a 50cc petrol dirt bike. But also children from the age of 4 can safely ride 50cc dirt bikes, but they may need training wheels to begin with. If your kids start from a young age on an electric dirt bike, there’s no reason why they won’t be riding a 50cc dirt bike quite easily aged 5 or 6 without training wheels.
The best dirt bikes for 6 year olds will have an engine size of 50cc. The power of the dirt bike will depend on your child’s physical size and prior experience. Plus of course the cost of a new kids dirt bike will be important to you as a parent too.
The best dirt bikes for 9-10 year olds will have an engine cc size ideally between 65-85cc. The power of the dirt bike will depend on your child’s maturity, their physical size and their prior experience. Plus of course the cost of a new dirt bike will be important to you as a parent too.
