    DIY 5 speed shifter kart

    DIY 5 speed shifter kart

    DIY 5 speed shifter kart

    We have progress, completely rewired the starter to a new switch with all new wires and it all works perfectly, it even charges the battery when running :) slight issue tho is it doesn't want to rev up without the choke so would I be right in thinking this is a jetting issue in the carb ?

    DIY 5 speed shifter kart

    Hi, spent a whole day trying to sort out the wiring loom for the electronic start and got nowhere :( I chucked all the loom back together and started the engine by hot wiring the starter straight off a battery. I've got a short video of it running but no idea how to upload it on here ?

    Periodic Down Time

    DIY 5 speed shifter kart

    Hi all, I'm new to this forum but not new to go karts. After recently building a grass track around my field for my GX200 powered kart I decided I wanted something faster. I decided I wanted something with gears so set about trying to find a bike engine, found someone local that was scrapping a...
