Anything bad to say about a Suzuki JR50?

I'm considering getting my son his first dirt bike over the winter. He's only 3 now but I think (hope) he'll be ready in the spring. I'm looking at the Suzuki JR50. Anyone know of any issues to keep an eye out for? Should I be looking elsewhere? I've read that most of the years are pretty much the same and that they are identical to the Kawi's just different color and badges.

I know that the Honda CRF50 has a great reputation but they are also selling for more than I was hoping to spend.

So what's your opinion on the Suzuki fiddy's?

Any of those bikes will be fine. There was a guy on eBay at one time , selling training wheels for $50.

the Honda 4 stroke 50 is too heavy, the suz jr 50 or the yam PW50 are your choices

The JR sounds like a real good option then. I'll be keeping an eye out for a good deal over the coming weeks and months. I've also see the training wheels pop up on craigslist from time to time. I'll be getting a set of those as well once I find a bike.
