    Be careful guys!

    Just thought I would remind everyone that karting is a dangerous sport- yesterday i rolled my buggy and my right hand got trapped between the cage and concrete. I have now got a splint and a fractured 3rd metacarpal. I wasn't even going fast. Hurt like a *****, and it was quite a minor injury...

    My free drill

    Hey, Today I was at my saturday job, and the bloke I work for offered me his old drill. He said the batteries didn't hold their charge or the charger was :censored:.

    Torque converter bolting up

    Hi, I have an adapter to fit a comet 40 1" I/d driver to a 3/4" shaft. The adapter protrudes by approx. .020. Therefore when the driver is bolted down tight, there is approx. .020 play. I have heard that centrifugal clutches should be allowed to move very slightly on the shaft. Does this apply...

    GX160 issue again

    Riding my minibike today, and it was low on fuel causing a lean condition. Rode it on partial choke to the house, then it died. Topped up the fuel and now the engine will refuse to start. Occasionally it fires and chucks a puff of smoke out of the intake. Does this sound like the flywheel key...

    Anyone know of this will fit?

    Your greyhound is a Honda gx200 clone. If you cannot fix your recoil check something put on it- there are two styles. Does the recoil have metal or plastic pawls? (pawls are the little arms which engage with the engine when you pull the recoil. Also, can you take a picture of the metal starter...

    Replace springs on coilovers

    Hi, I have some hydraulic shocks that I am going to use on my kart, think they are from a 125cc bike. However the springs seem a little stiff. Is there any way to replace them with lighter springs? There appears to be no obvious way to get them apart, I can get some pics if need be. Thanks Rob

    GX160- what's this all about?

It had a gx160, wiener pipe without muffler (small straight pipe, 3/4" O/D used by clone BS karters), gx200 carb and 20 thou copper head gasket to replace the 45 thou layered gasket and bump up the compression. The motor was not idling right. It...

    Chain links

    Ok this is a really simple question but I am buying some chain for my mini bike and need to know- I was probably going to get 420 or 428 and use it on a 41 sprocket, because those chains seem to be easier to find for less money where I live. I have found chains listed at, say 50 links, not as...
