Guys I ended up pulling the carb off and putting a spacer above the slide. It went pretty smooth and works great. It is only going about half throttle now, yet will still take off (with me on it) with no problem. My son is gonna love that little bike for sure!!!! Thanks again for all the advice. :)

When my son started out with his PW 80,he would leave it in 2nd gear all the time. I would pace off about 30 feet and make him ride towards me and brake.If he got out of control I could catch him,he never did.I did this several times until I felt he confident he knew what he was doing.

That's a good training exercise that I used when teaching my wife how to ride. I'm gonna do the same with my boy. :)
