Default My Kart Update

I posted a thread awhile back asking for help with some problems i was having on my kart, figured i would give an update for those who helped me out with that. It originally had a 250cc kymco motor in it, but had some issues with the transmission. I have since ditched that and gone for a 650cc SV650 engine. i have also ditched the differential and gone for a chain driven live axle, this should be fine for what i intend to use it for. I extended the frame by 1 foot to account for the larger motor, and as far as im concerned it looks better now that its longer (i included a picture of it before the new engine and extension were done for reference) Feel free to give feedback, this has all been a learning experience for me, and its all trial and error from this point on. As of right now the only thing left to do to get it running is wiring, just waiting on a sprocket and an ignition and it should be good to go (hopefully)

With some smooth wheels and paddle tires it would look like an old sand rail. Nice work.

That's basically what it is. It's a buggy (dune buggy/ATV).

Far cry from a go kart.
