A cb550 motor is a heck of a lot of power for a go kart. They probably make somewhere around 50-60 hp?? They are also pretty heavy. Then you also have to worry about shift linkage, clutch. It would...

Yes it is pretty aligned. Maybe not perfect though. I think the main reason it came off was because it stretched a bit. But with #40 chain I know that it will be much better about staying on the...

It seems like you must have another issue besides gearing. My kart has a predator 212 w/ 18” tires and 6:1 gearing with a 30 series, just like that. It accelerates really good and has no issues...

They definitely don’t have the torque curve of a normal diesel. The engines have a relatively short stroke, so they don’t make heaps of low end torque. They really like to run 2500-3500 rpms. I’m not...

You’re just fine. In my opinion anyway. It might be a bit rich, but as long as it revs good and doesn’t sputter or ever lose power, it’s not a problem. You might foul a plug here and there, but rich...

I think its 500-600 lbs. for sure heavier than the toyota engine, but the axles and springs are chevy, and it’s not too much heavier than a small block v8. And it’s by no means a powerhouse, after a...
