We are having the same issue with the throttle. it’s not even comfortable for a grown man to push in. I ordered an aftermarket throttle extension I will repost with results when I receive it.We recently bought our 8 yr old the outlaw 70 and she is having a problem with pushing the thumb throttle. It is really stiff and hard to push so she starts using her palm to go and can't control it well. Any suggestions on how to maybe loosen it? Thank you!
