Is there a better fix? And what's the best ratio?

I'd leave the autolube on, run Motul 600. Great oil.
About a year ago there was a thread on KTMtalk in the mini section that talked about ways to improve the JR50, you might want to do a search there too.

Much better,,,but still did not want to pull up hills. Did Internet search for performance mods,,,found out about 1st gear (bike is actually neutral to 2nd). Did the mod so now have 1st and 2nd.
Bike will pull itself through high grass or small hills now even choked up with throttle limiter so boy can only use about 1/4 throttle.
Great first bike. (After he learns to ride good,,,big sister will be getting a bigger trail bike and he will get her CRF50). I am going to keep him on "trail bikes" until he is at least 6 or 7 (only 3 right now).
Any ideas on next bike for sister,,,good rider, careful, not aggressive,,,9 years old. Been riding CRF50 since she was 5. Something equivalent to CRF50 but with slightly larger tires and much better suspension would be ideal. All trail riding maybe MX just 1 or 2 times a year (practice days, no races). Must be able to find used for reasonable price.
