First ride for 6 year old son ,WOW what a great little machine.
But the battery went dead after about 1 hour of riding and no start. It will boost and run.

Didn't you quad come with a wall charger that you plug in just above the key to charge the battery?
If not, just put a trickle charger on the battery when not in use, and it should work fine. Just to be careful, carry some booster cables in your tow vehicle so you can always boost if need be.

HI, Any chance he was riding with the headlight on?

My 4 yr old's gio is governed down so much that it doesn't create enough power to charge the battery if headlight is on. Headlight draws more than the bike can charge it. Not governed i can ride all night with headlight on and battery stays charged.

Yes headlight on for the whole time.
I guess will not use in the day. I tested battery voltage and 12.7 not running 13.5v running and turn on headlight down to 12.2volts
killing battery.
and no did not come with a charger but bought one at Crappy Tire for sealed motorcycle batteries worked just fine .
Thanks for the input
