Baja ATV – 90cc Fun For Kidsby Jean Harris
Baja ATV owners already know this but the Baja 90cc is a fun little all terrain vehicle. I had the pleasure of enjoying a BBQ lunch with my good friend Bill this afternoon his two sons, age 13 and 14, we’re having a blast motoring around the backyard on two Baja ATV 90cc. He bought the first quad in 2005 and the other is a 2007 Baja ATV and besides needing to fix one flat tire they have been 100% problem free.
Baja ATVs are manufactured by Baja Motorsports and are currently available from Pep Boys in the US as well as Canadian Tire in Canada. Different models years may vary but in general the Baja ATV has a 4-stroke 89.9cc engine rated at between 6.5 and 7.1 BHP (Base Horsepower). The Baja ATV requires the use of SAE 10W30 oil. In cold weather SEA 10W50 can be used but remember to change the oil back to 10W30 for summer.
