•
Never charge the battery for more than
30 hours
•
Charge the battery after each use.
•
Avoid running the battery completely as
this will greatly shorten their useable life.
•
Never leave the battery in an uncharged
condition. This will permanently damage it
and prevent it from being able to hold any
charge.
•
Disconnect the battery from the wiring if
the MINIMOTO™ GO KART is to be stored
more than 2 months.
•
Do not store the batteries in temperatures
above 75 degrees F or lower than
–8 degrees F.
•
Check to make sure the batteries are
securing in place before riding the Go

necessary.
You can charge as many as you want and
bring them with you where you intend to drive.

Do not charge the batteries on any delicate surfaces (such as a counter top).
•
Only use the provided charger to charge the batteries.
•
Only use a MINIMOTO™ GO KART battery or batteries when operating.

Tire inflation must be done
easily result in over inflation of the tires.
Over inflation of the tires can result in serious injury or even death.
Tires MUST be at the proper inflation in order
to achieve good handling characteristics and
control. Over inflation will make the tires
“bulge” outward. This will cause premature
wear of the tire. Under inflation will cause
the tire to look flat on the ground. This will
result in poor running speeds and handling.
Make sure that your tires are properly inflated
to get the most out of your vehicle.
Before inflating any tire, make sure the Power

of the Go kart.

CHAIN BELT ADJUSTMENT:
Because if the extreme loads placed on the chain drive
mechanism, it may be required to adjust the chain during
the life of the vehicle. If the chain is too loose, you may
hear a “popping” noise under heavy loads or acceleration.
This must be done immediately or the life of the chain will
be greatly reduced. If the chain falls off very often or
Fig 31
breaks entirely, it will necessary to replace it with a new
one. New Chains can be obtained by contacting the
Minimoto Service Center.
WARNING:
ANYTIME WORK IS BEING DONE NEAR THE
CHAIN OR MOTOR, THE BATTERY MUST BE DISCONNECTED.
THIS WILL ENSURE THAT THE MOTOR WILL NEVER ACCIDENTALLY RUN WHILE WORK IS BEING CARRIED OUT. IF THE
Fig 32
MOTOR WOULD ACCIDENTALLY COME ON WHILE WORK IS IN
PROGRESS, SERIOUS INJURY CAN OCCUR.
1) Check that the ON/OFF switch on the steering wheel is

MINIMOTO™ GO KART
TROUBLESHOOTING:
Problem
Probable Cause
Solution
The GO KART does not run.
1) The switch on the steering wheel is in the OFF position.
2) You are stepping on the brake pedal.
1) Move the switch on the steering wheel to the on position.
2) Step off the brake and apply pressure to the accelerator
pedal. The brake pedal cuts all current to the motor
when the brake is applied.
3) Make sure the power shut off “T” handle is properly
plugged into the back of the vehicle.
4) Charge the battery.
5) Refer to page 18 to reset.
6) Check to see if the wall socket is in the “ON” position
and the POWER LED light is on on the charger.
7) If the battery is old or has been abused, it will need to
replaced.
8) Check all connectors.
3) The Power Shut off “T” handle is not attached .
4) The battery is low.
5) The CIRCUIT BREAKER is blown.
6) The charger is not working
7) The battery is dead
8) The wires are loose.
The GO KART was running but
it suddenly stopped.
1) Low battery voltage.
2) CIRCUIT BREAKER is blown.
3) Loose connectors.
4) The power shut off “T” handle has come off.
1) The electronic circuit will automatically detect when the
voltage is too low for the go kart to run. Recharge the
battery.
2) Refer to page 18 to reset.
3) Check all electrical connections, including the one that
attaches to the accelerator pedal.
4) Replace the power shut off “T” handle into it’s proper
location.
The GO KART suddenly stopped
running and I hear a high pitched
sound.
The electronics have determined an unusual power "spike".
Turn the vehicle OFF and wait ten seconds. Turn the vehicle ON
again and drive as normal. Try to drive the Go Kart more
smoothly.
The GO KART is in “ON” mode but
when I press the accelerator pedal,
the back wheel won’t turn.
1) The charger is still connected.
2) Check to see if the power shut off “T” handle is all the
way in.
3) Make sure you are not stepping on the brake.
4) Press the accelerator too fast. Self - test not
completed.
1) Disconnect the charger.
2) Plug the power shut off “T” handle all the way in.
Motor will run but the GO KART
does not move.
Broken chain.
Replace chain.
I hear a “whirring” noise from the
charger when it is charging the
GO KART.
This is normal.
No action necessary.
Only the right tire moves the vehicle.
The left tire doesn’t seem to have
any power.
This is normal. The right side tire provides the power to the
ground and left side provides the braking action.
No action necessary.
The front wing pops off if I go over
a big bump.
The front wing is designed to do this to help prevent damage
in the case of a collision. This is normal.
No action necessary.
The GO KART is noisy or making
a “popping” sound when moving.
The chain is too loose.
Adjust the chain. Refer to page 20 - 21.
The charger gets warm
when I recharge the
battery.
This is normal.
No action required.
The tires are worn out after several
hours of running.
This is normal.
The tires are designed to be soft and sticky for maximum
performance. Rotate the tires from right to left to help increase
the life of each tire. Replace worn tires immediately.
The vehicle moves in reverse.
The "FWD/REV" switch is in "REV" position.
Move the switch to the “FWD” position.

3) Remove pressure from the brake pedal and try again.
4) Wait one second (for GO KART self - test) after turn on the
ON/OFF.

Problem
Probable Cause
Solution
The battery only lasts about
30 minutes to 40 minutes when
I ride the GO KART.
This is normal.
No action required. recharge the battery normally. length of
operation depends on the terrain, driving style, weight of the
rider, and battery condition.
The battery makes a slight sizzling or
gurgling sound when it recharges.
This is normal.
No action required.
When I try to recharge the battery,
the POWER LED does not light up or
flash.
1)
Electricity is not going to the charger.
2)
The fuse is blown.
1) There is no problem with the batteries. Check to see that
the switch that controls the socket that the charger is
plugged into is in the on position.
2) Replace the fuse. Refter to page 19.
The CIRCUIT BREAKER blows too often. To much current is being used to power the GO KART.
1) Make sure the weight limit is not being exceeded.
2) Do not ride the GO KART up a steep grade.
3) The riding surface is too rough, run on a smoother surface.
The GO KART runs for less than
30 minutes after a charge.
1) The first time you charge the battery, make sure that the
full 12 hours is used. Look to see that the green light is on
before attempting a run.
2) If the battery is old, it may need replacing.
The battery is undercharged.
The LIGHT GREEN LED never comes on. 1) The battery is not being properly charged.
The GO KART runs sluggishly.
24
1) Make sure all connectors are clean. Repair if necessary
and the plug is properly placed in the GO KART’s receptacle.
2) The battery is too old or has been abused.
2) Replace the battery.
1) You are in TRAINING MODE.
2) The battery is undercharged.
3) Check to see if the switch is in “training mode”.
4) The battery is old.
1) Move the switch to NORMAL MODE.
2) Charge the battery.
3) Move the switch to “full power” mode.
4) Even under perfect conditions, the battery will only last
about 1 to 2 years. If your battery is old or has been
abused or left uncharged for a long period of time, it may
need replacing.
5) Try to run on smooth, flat surfaces only.
5) The conditions and surfaces you are on are too
extreme.
6) The GO KART is overloaded.
6) Make sure the rider does not exceed the 200lb limitation.
If you have tried these solutions but the problem still exists, contact the Minimoto Service
Center for advice or assistance. They will assist you in getting quickly on the road. PLEASE
CHARGE THE BATTERY FULLY (if possible) before calling the center as this will speed up the
checklist. Have the Go Kart near the phone so you can do the various tests quickly.
