7thofa2nd, I believe it was the first page and the first time the robron was mentioned, the supports for the front axles that are present on your robron don't exist on his kart and there is no live...

It's a dead axle kart, it's not robron, we already established that 7thofa2nd! Also, I wouldn't bet your money on a one wheel peel kart "running circles" around most the karts here, I have a gx270...

Harbor freight wheels? Really? Um..... NOOOOOPE! Not even for a test run, they are not meant for anything above a walking speed, they are absolutely not the same as kart wheels, and there is no...

Not quite, where's the scrub brakes on that one? Plus, that's a live axle, Rupp if I'm not mistaken.

Just because it's small, red and similar doesn't mean it's the same guys.

Nope, steering support is different, supports on the front spindle areas aren't there, pedals are different (yes could have been replaced but doubtful), and looks like manco wheels all around. Only...

116165

If I'm right about it being a 400, yours is like a high school fling, rode hard put up wet, and needs a lot of work. Reason I'd strip it for parts is because generally speaking I wouldn't...

Yea, return spring is good, original linkage was built from the paperclip and it broke the end off, the sharp remnant of it dug into the butterfly on the carb at wide open, that has been fixed now.

We did give it a test run today, I'll let geno talk about the mishap. The engine sounds strong, and performs well. We did take it easy since the governor gear is still inside, but I think he is...

I think we aren't getting the message clearly between us. If the entire governor is removed, gear, arm, washers and so on, is there risk of internals coming apart. Not looking for a third option,...

How likely is it for the flywheel to come apart if we remove the governor completely? We would love to test ride today. I created the linkage wire we needed from the paperclip that was provided and...

Best way I can describe how it was hooked up from P.O. is the cable was zip-tied to the rear bumper, a paper clip wrapped around the end of the cable, and hooked over the paperclip looking linkage on...

You aren't mistaken, every manco I've had was a 3" wide or close piece of sheet metal straight down the center of the seat hoop to another piece ran perpendicular to it for the butt pad. I don't...

Hey sid, we went out and took a picture of the tag for you, just to notice it's a techumseh. Only work we've done was drained the fuel, blew out the carb, and added fresh gas to get it to...

JT, I think you'd have to agree for the $275 I believe the seller is asking, it is in nice shape for a first kart, and with it being a 212 honda clone, there isn't much of a difference in buying a...

Not bad, but I'd see if he can get closer to your budget. Looks to me like a manco (could be wrong) but doesn't look like it's been beat on, I'd say if it runs and drives $400 cash might bring them...
