NOTE TO USER: Fully read all instructions prior to first use or start up of your go kart.
1) Generally most go kart batteries will need to have battery acid added. If your battery came with a bottle with clear liquid in it, that means you will need to add battery acid to the battery. If not, you have a jell battery and acid will not need to be added.
NOTE: The only liquid that will come with your go kart is battery acid. If you do not have a sealed battery, then you will need to add battery acid to your battery prior to charging. If you find a clear sealed container/bottle with your go kart, this will be battery acid. It is NOT gasoline or fluids for anything other than
the battery. If you are unsure what the fluid is, DO NOT put it in your unit. Contact us immediately before proceeding.
2) We recommend you charge your battery with a trickle charger at 2 amps for 12 hours.
3) For the 90B, 90KT, 110B and 110KT, the fuel/gas line runs from the bottom of the gas tank to the carburetor. Hook up the gas line on the side of the carburetor that is closest to the seat. (There is a brass nozzle that sticks up about 1/2".) Also, make sure the gas/fuel line has an in-line fuel filter. If your go kart does not have a fuel filter, make sure you get one from a local parts store before you put any gas into the system and start the go kart.
- Your gokart may or may not have a fuel shut off value. If your gokart has a fuel shut off value, make sure that it is in the “on” position.
- The fuel line is the only hose you will need to hook up. The other hoses are breather tubes and should not be hooked up to anything. Make sure they are away from the exhaust and chain.
4) Choke: These gokarts have a black manual plastic choke up on the carburetor or a gold metal rod. Either of these manual chokes will have to be moved up before starting the gokart. You do not needed to choke the engine when the engine is warmed up. Choking is only needed for cold start ups.
5) Your gokart must be started in neutral. It will not start if it is in forward or reverse.
6) To start this gokart with the key you will need to first press down the brake pedal, and then turn the key to the start position. You may need to press down a little on the throttle/gas pedal/accelerator to start the kart.
7) If you are not able to start the gokart with the key then we will have to clear the remote system. We will do that two ways:
With the key fob/remote in hand...
- Press lock
- Press unlock
- Press lock again
- Press unlock again
- Try starting the gokart with the key
If that did not work...
- Remove the battery from the remote
- Disconnect the battery at the gokart (Either positive or negative)
- Let the gokart sit for 12 minutes to clear the system
- Put everything back together
- Try starting the gokart
Note: The "drain-plug" is on the bottom of the engine. The dip stick is where you add oil to the engine. The engine should have oil in it, BUT check before starting the Gokart. After you run the unit for 30 to 60 minutes, change the oil. In the winter use 10W-30 and in the summer use 15W-40. It will take about 1 quart of oil.
