RULES FOR SAFE OPERATION
STOP
NOTE: All the items (1-32) below should be read and understood
by the Operator and Parent. Failure to follow these instructions could
endanger personal safety of the operator and any passenger.
1.
This vehicle is not licensable. IT IS NOT TO BE OPERATED ON ANY PUBLIC ROAD, STREET,
SIDEWALK or ALLEY. To do so would be a violation of local law. This vehicle may be operated
only on private property and upon areas approved by local law.
2.
This vehicle should NEVER be operated indoors. The exhaust from the engine contains carbon
monoxide, which is tasteless, odorless, and poisonous gas.
3.
This Go-Kart is not intended nor designed for racing.
4.
The operator of this vehicle should always wear a D.O.T approved helmet and other
protective equipment as recommended by state and local laws. The operator should also
wear face shields or goggles, boots, gloves, hearing protection and other appropriate protective
clothing.
5.
Unless otherwise specified in this manual, all screws, NUTS, and BOLTS must be kept tight to ensure
that the vehicle is in safe operating condition. The engine must be kept free of all dirt and other
accumulations, paying particular attention to throttle linkage area.
6.
Prevailing Torque type lockNUTS lose their locking capability with repeated use and require
replacement. Ensure lockNUTS are functioning properly.
7.
The tire pressure should be checked prior to each use. The recommended inFLATion pressure is the
maximum tire pressure which is printed on the tire’s sidewall. Improper tire pressure may cause
instability and may prevent proper braking or steering.
8.
Modification of this vehicle or removal of any original equipment or safety decals may render the vehicle
unsafe or illegal. Never remove any chained guard, or belt clutch guard. These covers are
for the riders’ protection.

9.
The vehicle should never be started without first checking to see that the throttle is in idle position. Do
not start engine without verifying proper function of the throttle.
10. Never attempt to start this vehicle without having the operator sitting in the proper
position to ensure control of the kart.
11. The operator’s ability to operate this off-road vehicle safely is largely dependent upon the operator’s
ability to exercise proper judgment. An operator also must not be too small or too large for controlled
operation. The operator must be at least 16 years of age and have understanding, mental capacity and
physical capability to safely operate this vehicle. This vehicle should only be operated after mature,
supervised instruction and sufficient practice in non-congested areas.
12. This vehicle is designed for one operator and one passenger. A passenger on any vehicle
must be sufficient age, understanding, mental capacity, and physical capability to act to protect
himself/herself, and wear a D.O.T approved helmet at all times. This kart is not recommended
cumulative weights exceeding 250 pounds.
13. The engine should be stopped when the vehicle is not in use.
14. Loose clothing, long hair, or articles worn by any riders must be fully contained, or
covered to prevent them from possibly being caught in rotating parts of the vehicle or
the surrounding environment while riding. Failure to obey could endanger the personal
safety of the Riders.
15. Do not place hands, feet, or any other part of the body or any clothing near the engine,
muffler, wheels, chain, and other rotating parts of the vehicle while riding or running
the engine. Caution must be used in performing required maintenance on or near an operating engine.
Special caution should be taken after the engine has been running, since the engine and other drive
components may be extremely hot.
16. Wet, slippery, rough, or steep terrain is potentially dangerous and may result in injury if proper caution
is not observed. Slow speeds are required to safely operate this vehicle under those conditions. The
Operator must use mature judgement, skill, and experience to choose a speed suitable for the terrain
and riding conditions.
17. The Governor settings for this vehicle’s engine must not be tampered with, altered or
changed. The governor is set by the engine manufacturer and limits the maximum speed of the engine
(and vehicle) and protects the engine from damage. Excessive speeds are potentially dangerous to
the rider and the engine.
18. Each time before using this vehicle, the fuel supply should be checked. The fuel tank should
never be filled while the engine is running or while the engine is hot. Do not fill tank in closed
area such as a garage, while smoking, or in the vicinity of an open flame. Do not overfill the
tank. Always allow at least 1/4 inch of space at the top of the tank for expansion. Never top
off tank. Replace cap tightly to prevent spillage of fuel and potential fire hazard. After filling
tank, move the vehicle at least 15 feet away from spot of filling before starting.
19. If the vehicle should start making unusual noise or vibrating abnormally, the engine should be stopped
and the spark plug wire disconnected. The vehicle should then be checked for damage. Excessive
noise or vibration is generally a warning of loose or worn parts.
20. When making repairs or adjustments to the vehicle which do not involve adjustments to the engine,
the spark plug wire must be disconnected and kept away from the spark plug to prevent accidental
starting. When working on or around or when restarting engine, use extreme caution to avoid contact
with the muffler, cylinder head, or any other potentially hot area on or around the engine.
21. Always perform a Pre-Ride Inspection before starting the engine. See Pre-Ride Inspection in the
manual.
22. The custom brush guard assembled on this vehicle is for deflecting loose vegetation and must not be
removed.

ASSEMBLY
Complete the Go-Kart registration and warranty confirmation on the back of this owner’s manual
and mail in within 10 days of purchase. The information is required when ordering parts.
1. Assemble go-kart as indicate on the following pages.
2. BOLTS - Check the screws, NUTS and BOLTS on your vehicle to see that all are tightened
securely. For safe operating conditions, do periodic checks and tighten securely.
3. Fill fuel tank with unleaded gasoline only. Octane should be 85 to 93 or higher.
4. Tire Pressure
CHECK AIR PRESSURE IN TIRES!!
It is common industry practice to over inflate the tires. This is done to guarantee an airtight seal.
Prior to riding the Go-Kart for the first time, you may need to reduce the air pressure in the tires
to the specifications stated below:
Rear Tires
Front Tires
10 PSI
12 PSI
Proper tire pressures will increase the life of the tire and enhance the performance of the Go-Kart.
Driving on asphalt or concrete will significantly reduce the life of the tire!!
PRE-RIDE INSPECTION
WARNING - Perform this pre-ride inspection everyday before
riding the vehicle. If not performed, serious damage to the
vehicle and personal injury may result.
1. Engine Oil Level – Add oil if required. Check for leaks. Tighten filler cap securely.
2. Fuel Level – Add fuel if necessary. Do not overfill (no fuel in filler neck). Replace cap tightly.
Check for leaks. Do not mix oil with gas. Only refuel when engine is off and cool.
Note: The fuel cap must be vented. Turn the vent screw on the fuel cap counter
clockwise to vent the tank. Failure to do so will prohibit your unit from running.
3. Brakes – Perform a Brake Test: Sit in the vehicle with the brake actuated by pressing on the
brake pedal. Start the engine with the ignition switch on. Increase the engine RPM gradually
to ensure the brake is effective and that it does not ”leak down”. Do not operate this Go-Kart
unless the brake is working properly. Check brake fluid regularly to ensure that it is clear
colored and that the fluid level is within the minimum and maximum range. This unit should
not crank unless the brake pedal is pressed down.
4. Tires – Verify correct air pressure in tires.
5. Drive Chain and Sprockets – Check condition, tension, lubricate as necessary. Check sprocket
for broken teeth and loose fasteners.
6
For parts or service call 1-888-926-6554 • www.yerf-dog.com
6. Throttle – Check for smooth operation. Assure throttle “snaps” back to idle. Also, check for
frayed cable or damaged cable conduit. If either condition exists replace the cable assembly
before riding.
7. Stop Switch – Perform this stop switch test. While the engine is running, move the steering
column remote stop switch to the “OFF” position. If this does not stop the engine, move the
engine remote switch to the “OFF” position. If the engine is not equipped with an engine
remote switch, pull the spark plug wire. Do not operate this vehicle with a stop switch that
is not functioning properly.
8. All NUTS, BOLTS and Fasteners – Check wheels to assure that all axle NUTS and lug
NUTS are tightened properly. Check and tighten all other fasteners as necessary. Regularly
check set screws on sprockets and drum.
9. Guards – Ensure all protective guards are in place. Never remove any chain guard, or
clutch guard. Each of these covers have a protective purpose, if removed it could endanger
the personal safety of the operator or passenger.
10. Steering System – Ensure that it turns freely.
11. Unit must be on flat level ground.
OPERATIONAL SAFETY TIPS
TURNING MANEUVERS
The new rider must learn to shift his weight and control the throttle to allow the rear tires to negotiate
the turn. This is the primary technique to be mastered in riding this vehicle. Practice turning at
slow constant speeds. Defer increased speeds until you are confident of your proficiency and are
intimately familiar with the terrain.
Steer in the direction of the turn, and lean your body to the inside of the turn in order to maximize
front tire traction. Use the throttle to maintain posture throughout the turn.
Incorrect turning techniques may cause the front tires to slide straight ahead without affecting the
vehicles direction of travel. If this should occur, come to a stop, then resume the technique outlined
above.
If the front wheels tend to skid in mud, sand, or snow, you may be able to improve control by
releasing the throttle and allowing the vehicle to coast through the turn.
If rear wheel inadvertently skid sideways, correct your slide by steering in the direction of the skid,
if you have room to perform this maneuver safely. Avoid braking or accelerating until you have
control.
To avoid skids while traveling on slippery terrain, the rider must exercise a high degree of caution.
Turning maneuvers on slippery terrain are more hazardous than those performed under full traction
and must be done slowly.

PREVENTIVE MAINTENANCE
STORAGE
In the event your vehicle is not to be operated for a period in excess of 30 days and at the end
of riding season prepare for storage as follows:
WARNING - Do not drain fuel while engine is hot. Be sure to move
vehicle outside before draining fuel.
1. Drain fuel tank and remove all fuel remaining in the tank by using a suction device or by soaking
up the fuel with a clean rag or towel. Remove all fuel remaining in the carburetor by allowing
engine to run out of fuel. Do not perform any fuel removal procedure while smoking or near
an open flame. Dispose of any rags or towels properly.
2. Lubricate engine cylinder by removing the spark plug and pouring an ounce of lean lubricating
oil through the spark plug hole into the cylinder. Crank the engine slowly to spread oil and
replace spark plug.
3. Do not save or store gasoline over winter. Using old gasoline that has deteriorated from
storage will cause hard starting and affect engine performance.
4. When the vehicle is removed from storage re-read the owner’s manual, perform any assembly
required, and perform a pre-ride inspection. See Pre-Ride Inspection section of this manual.
GENERAL
Just as your automobile needs professional, mechanical maintenance from time to time, so does
this vehicle. Replacement of the spark plug and ignition points is made necessary by normal use.
Professional air-cooled engine service is easily obtained. Check your phone book yellow pages
under “Engine Gasoline”.
SERVICE INSTRUCTIONS
Kart Lubrication – Every two or three hours of use lubricate the following items with several drops
of oil; steering bearing points, brake rod pivot points, pedal pivot points, steering spindles, and
steering rod ends. Use the same grade of lubricating oil that is used in the engine crankcase.
Front Wheel Replacement – Care must be used when replacing wheels. Do not over tighten
nuts. It is only necessary to tighten the nuts so that the wheel turns freely on the axle with minimum
endplay. If the wheel does not turn freely the nut is too tight.
Rear Wheel Replacement – Loosen the 4 lug nuts in order to remove the tire.
For Engine Service instructions, see the Drive Train Service Section.

SUSPENSION MAINTENANCE
The Suspension System on your Go-Kart is specifically designed and set up for the smoothest possible
ride, while maintaining top performance and kart durability. Your Go-Karts suspension system uses
four shock absorbers, two on the front suspension and two on the rear suspension, to comfortably
tackle rough terrain.
The two front shock absorbers affect the camber or slant of your front tires. You may have noticed
that your new Go-Kart has an extreme outward camber or slant of the front tires as shown in Figure
A. This is normal. They were set this way at the factory for ensuring maximum tread life on the front
tires. There are three important reasons for this outward camber:
1. The weight of the driver and/or passenger is not on the Kart.
The added weight of the driver and/or passenger pushes the front and rear suspension down.
2. The Go-Kart is not in motion.
When the Kart is in motion, the front suspension is forced down slightly.
3. The shock absorbers are new and not “broken in”.
Your new Go-Kart needs at least one hour of use to “break in” the shocks and level out the tires.
After the first 30 minutes of use, the outward camber may be reduced by one half. After 1 hour
of use the tires may have almost no or slight outward camber as shown in Figure B.
When your Go-Kart gets an inward camber on the front tires from shock wear as shown in Figure C
and steering becomes difficult, the shocks will need to be readjusted. Adjust the front suspension to
a slight outward camber as shown in Figure B by increasing the shocks. Adjust the shocks by following
the “Shock Absorber Adjustment “ instructions below. When your shocks cannot be adjusted any
tighter, they must be replaced.
A. EXTREME OUTWARD CAMBER
B. SLIGHT OUTWARD CAMBER
C. INWARD CAMBER
(NEW SHOCKS, NOT BROKEN IN)
(SHOCKS BROKEN IN)
(SHOCKS NEED TO BE
ADJUSTED OR REPLACED)
SHOCK ABSORBER ADJUSTMENT
1. Locate the SHOCK ABSORBERS (78) at the front and rear of the Go-Kart.
2. The factory pre-set the SHOCKS for normal operating conditions.
3. Locate the SHOCK ADJUSTMENT HOLE at the base of the spring.
4. Place the end of a narrow screwdriver in the SHOCK ADJUSTMENT HOLE.
5. Turn the SHOCK ADJUSTMENT HOLE counter-clockwise around the SHOCK
to decrease shock absorption.
6. Turn the SHOCK ADJUSTMENT HOLE clockwise around the SHOCK to
increase shock absorption.
7. Experiment with the adjustment until the desired effect is attained.
