Replacing rings means you need gaskets on hand, new rings(duh), as well as basic tools, and a quality torque wrench. IDK about valve guide bushings.

5.7143 would be the gear ratio with the 80T sprocket. With 18" tires that's not good, but better than the 68T.

How'd ya get the kart and tools to stick to the ceiling?! :roflol:;)

You probably have oil leaking into the internals. My best guess is a worn exhaust valve guide.
Oil is getting through the system somewhere, it could be:
Piston rings/cylinder wall
valves/valve...

Your options are jackshaft, bigger sprocket, or smaller wheels.

Yes, I should've clarified.
This is what I meant by valveless: lacking cam operated valves.

^^Yeah, me too.
These oversized rear tires are growing on me....
What's y'all's thoughts on it? Should I go back to the original rear tire size, or stick with 13x5x6?

You mean a feeler guage.
Go get one! They're literally like $5 on Amazon! With free shipping!
Setting valve lash correctly can greatly extend your engine life and keep you from pulling your arm off.
