Default My first cart. Opinions needed.

Hey guys howís everyone doing? I picked up my first go kart since I was a kid. Itís a yerf dog and it ooks like a 30033. It needs some work but for $50 I couldnít pass it up. I do need some help though. Iím having trouble finding the sizes for a few things. The rear tires on this are 20x11x8. I believe they are too big though. The right rear is rubbing against the frame. I also need a new throttle cable. I see them in different lengths and Iím not sure what size to get. Iím also wondering where the best place is to buy stuff. Any info is appreciated on those issues or anything else you guys can throw at me.

This is a 20x10-8 on a yerfdog 3203. If you want to stay with a 20Ē tire this would work for you. I used Kenda Scorpion tires.

The front is easy. 15x6-6. You can get them from gopowersports as a front set for less than $60. My tears I had to order from amazon and eBay. Rear wheels (8x8.5) I got from BMI. They are wheels that bolt to a hub. For the rear I suggest ordering hubs as a bearing type wheel on the rear, without proper upkeep, has a tendency to get frozen forever. Many of us have had to cut axles in half because of this. The hub simply makes it easier and expands your wheel choices, while also eliminating the need for wheel bearings in the rear.

Welcome to the forum! For a accelerator cable you can just buy bicycle brake cable and cut it to length. If you need a long piece, make sure you buy cable made for a tandem bike. It is usually longer

Those rears you have are just too wide, and that is why they are rubbing the frame.

I see you have a centrifugal clutch on there. What are the tooth counts of the axle sprocket and the clutch sprocket/ I have a feeling that your gearing might be a bit tall for the size rear tyres you have on there. A comet 30 series torque converter would probably suite you better with this kart if you want to keep the taller wheels

Thanks a lot fellas.
Landuse im going to be taking that clutch off and redo the entire thing. That was my plan for today but with the heat index it’s already 101 degrees lol. The hot and humid Long Island summers suck. I’ll probably just suffer and start anyway as I feel like a kid on Christmas.

If you were closer to colorado I'd buy the rear tires from you, or trade you out for the set on my dingo that are too small,hope you find what you need!

After starting to take this thing apart I think I’m going to leave it alone and sell it. This thing is way too much for me to do right now. Anyone in the NY area interested?

I doubt there’s enough, or for that matter any current members in NY or any that would be interested. That’s a long shot.

Put it up in CL, OfferUp, Letgo, Failbook Marketplace and the like. Pity it’s in pieces and not working.

You might keep the engine and see if you can get what you paid for for the whole thing or more. $50 was a steal.

From the pictures it seems you need a throttle cable chain and tierods the tires seem re usableget some spacers to fix the rubbing the you can buy terf tires that size on ebay or at tractor supply
