1. If you are running a factory dirt bike to race, you already lost. Karts out of the box are closer to race ready than dirt bikes, by a long ways (2 main reasons, suspension and wt).

2. How did ...

After my wife freaking out about where we would store my kart (we are those weird kind of people that like to get both cars in the garage) I was looking at purchasing something like you did.

After ...

Is a few things, in my opinion.

1. Exposure. Exposure. Exposure. I have never seen it on tv, and never even mentioned on speed channel. Kind of sad when I am in California and I see snowmobile ra ...

OK, a little unscientific comparing today. Limited time, so I didn't have a chance to compare me driving both karts, same day, same track, same driver and same tires. But my Brother and I ran today ...

Ask the 100 guys down there.
Up here you can find them for $1200/1500 in K1 and K2 spec
So carb/pipe/timing bump to K3orK4 will cost something...

Will probably just buy a complete kart and have ...

Just pull that Leapard off along with wiring, radiator, pump and the works and bolt that KPV on.

interesting, what would a decent KPV motor cost, by itself?

Guys, thanks for all your help!

My Brother jumped into the racing F100 at Grange and said he had a blast. We are a racing family and grew up racing BMX and downhill mountain bikes and love the fri ...

Thanks guys! After following the above advice I was able to free up or unbind the axle. It will actually spin a revolution or 2 after I spin the wheel by hand. Previously it wouldn't. I think all the ...

Yes, set screws. Use cassette bolts as tuning tool

Sorry Matt, don't know difference between "set screws" and "cassette bolts". This is all new to me, so excuse me.

Grease +1

Loosen all pinch bolts, loosen all cassette bolts (remove 3rd bearing set screws if installed). Spin freely evenly retighten all bolts in reverse order while spinning frequently to insure ...

You'll never do harm with grease. It might not be the most "free", but if you're new, you're much better off knowing that you've got a reliable kart.

Triflow's cool, but I find it's a lo ...

Wow. Reading the thread titled "what to soak new bearings in?" From this site. Sounds like most people use triflow, and grease will slow the bearings down. Looks like I screwed up. Wonder if ...

What did you repack them with?

Typically many karters just use a good spray lubricant like Tri-Flow as grease has too high rolling resistance. I think some use white lithium, I haven't tried it per ...
