of your kart.
To help you make informed decisions about safety, we have provided operating
procedures and other information on labels and in this manual. This information
alerts you to potential hazards that could hurt you or others.
It is not practical or possible to warn you about all the hazards associated with
operating or maintaining a kart. You must use your own good judgment.
You will find important safety information in a variety of forms, including:
Safety Labels _ On the kart.
Safety Messages _ Preceded by a safety alert symbol
and one of two signal
words: WARNING, or CAUTION.
These signal word mean:
WARNING
Physical harm may result from failure to adhere to the instructions that are described
within the WARNING labels.
Safety Headings — such as important safety reminders or important safety precautions.
Safety Section — such as kart safety.
Instructions — how to use this kart correctly and safely.
This entire manual is filled with important safety information—please read it carefully.

IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Your kart will provide you with many years of service and pleasure, providing
you take responsibility for your own safety and understand the challenges you may
meet while driving.
There is much that you can do to protect yourself while operating your kart. You'll
find many helpful recommendations throughout this manual. The following are a
few that we consider most important.
Follow the Age Recommendation
Experienced adult supervision should be present for all inexperienced operators.
Always Wear a Helmet
It's a proven fact: wearing helmets significantly reduces the number and severity of head
injuries. Always wear an approved motorcycle helmet. We also recommend that you
wear eye protection, sturdy boots, gloves, and other protective gear.
Drive Off-Road Only
Your kart is designed and manufactured for off-road use only. Its tires are not
made for pavement, and the kart does not have features required for use on public roads.
If you need to cross a paved or public road, shut the kart’s power off, get off and walk
your kart across.
Take Time to Learn & Practice
Even if you have driven other karts, take time to become familiar with how this
kart works and handles. Practice in a safe area until you build your skills and get
accustomed to this kart's size and weight.
Because many accidents involve inexperienced or untrained drivers, we urge all drivers
to take a training course approved by the Go-Kart Safety Institute. Check with your dealer
for more information on training courses.
Be Alert for Off-Road Hazards
The terrain can present a variety of challenges when you drive off-road. Continually
"read" the terrain for unexpected turns, drop-offs, rocks, ruts, and other hazards. Always
keep your speed low enough to allow time to see and react to hazards.
6
IMPORTANT SAFETY INFORMATION
Drive within Your Limits
Pushing limits is another major cause of kart accidents. Never drive beyond your
personal abilities or faster than conditions warrant. Remember that alcohol, drugs, fatigue,
and inattention can significantly reduce your ability to make good judgments and drive
safely.
Alcohol, Drugs, and Driving
Alcohol, drugsand driving don't mix. Even one drink can reduce your ability to respond to
changing conditions, and your reaction time gets worse with every additional drink. So
don't drink and drive, and don't let your friends drink and drive either. Do not operate
this kart if you are taking any prescriptions.
Do Not Operate this Kart at Night
Lower visibility at night can greatly reduce a driver’s judgment. Driving at night is
dangerous and will increase the possibility of an accident.
Never Run Your Kart Indoors
The exhaust from the engine contains carbon monoxide, a poisonous gas which is tasteless
& odorless. Carbon monoxide kills.
Keep Away from Moving Parts of the Kart
Never place your hands or any other body part near any moving part of the kart. Failure
to adhere to this warning may cause physical harm to your body.
Skidding or Sliding
The terrain’s surface can be a major factor affecting turns. Skidding in a turn is more likely
to occur on slippery surfaces such as snow, ice, mud, and loose gravel. If you skid on ice, you
may lose all directional control. To avoid skidding on slippery terrain, keep your speed low
and drive carefully.

ARE YOU READY TO DRIVE ?
Before each drive, make sure you and your kart are both ready to drive. This section
discusses how to evaluate your driving readiness, what items you should check on your
kart, and adjustments to make for your comfort, convenience, or safety.
Before you drive your kart for the first time, we urge you to:
Read this owner's manual and the labels on your kart carefully.
Make sure you understand all the safety messages.
Know how to operate all the controls.
Have an experienced adult present if operator is not experienced in this kart.
Before each drive, be sure:
You wear your seat belt at all times while driving your kart.
You feel well and are in good physical and mental condition.
You are wearing an approved motorcycle helmet (with chin strap tightened securely), eye
protection, and other protective clothing.
You don't have any alcohol or drugs in your system.
Protective Apparel
For your safety, we strongly recommend that you always wear an approved motorcycle
helmet, eye protection, boots, gloves, long pants, and long-sleeved shirt or jacket, whenever
you drive. Although complete protection is not possible, wearing proper gear can reduce the
chance of injury when you drive.
The following suggestions will help you choose the proper driving gear.
Helmets and Eye Protection
Your helmet is your most important piece of driving gear because it offers the best protection
against head injuries. A helmet should fit your head comfortably and securely.
An open-face helmet offers some protection, but a full-face helmet offers more. Regardless of
the style, look for a DOT (Department of Transportation) sticker on any helmet you buy. Always
wear a face shield or goggles to protect your eyes and help your vision.
WARNING
Operating this go-kart without wearing an approved motorcycle helmet, eye protection,
and protective clothing could increase your chances of head and/or eye injury, and the
possibility of death in the event of a severe accident.
Always wear an approved motorcycle helmet that fits properly and wear eye protection
(goggles or face shield), gloves, boots, long-sleeved shirt or jacket and long pants.
9
ARE YOU READY TO DRIVE?
Additional Driving Gear
In addition to a helmet and eye protection, we also recommend:
Sturdy off-road motorcycle boots to help protect your feet, ankles, and lower legs.
Off-road motorcycle gloves to help protect your hands.
Driving pants with knee and hip pads, a driving jersey with padded elbows, and a chest/
shoulder protector.
Driver Training
Developing your driving skills is an ongoing process. Even if you have driven other karts,
before driving take time to become familiar with how this kart works and handles. Practice driving
the kart in a safe area to build your skills. Do not drive in rough terrain until you get accustomed
to the kart's controls, and feel comfortable with its size and weight.
WARNING
Operating this kart without your seat belt could cause you to be thrown
from the kart, causing serious injury or death.
Age Recommendation
It is strongly recommended that no one under the age of 16 be permitted to operate this go-kart.
WARNING
A child driving a kart that is not recommended because he/she could lose control
of the kart resulting in severe injury or death.
No Alcohol or Drugs
Alcohol, drugsand karts don't mix. Even a small amount of alcohol can impair your ability
while operating a kart. Consult your doctor to be sure it is safe to operate a vehicle after
taking medication.
WARNING
Operating this kart after consuming alcohol or drugs can seriously
affect your judgment, cause you to react more slowly, affect your balance
and perception, and could result in serious injury or death.
Never consume alcohol or drugs before or while operating this kart.
10
IS YOUR VEHICLE READY TO DRIVE?
Before each drive, it is important to inspect your kart and make sure any problems you find
are corrected. A pre-drive inspection is a must, not only for safety, but because having a
breakdown, or even a flat tire, can be a major inconvenience.
If your kart has overturned or has been involved in a collision, do not drive it until your
kart has been inspected by your dealer. There may be damages or other problems you cannot
see.
WARNING
Improperly maintaining this kart or failing to correct a problem before
driving may cause a crash in which you can be seriously hurt or killed.
Always perform a pre-drive inspection before every drive and correct any
problems.

Check for leaks.
Tires
Use a gauge to check the air pressure. Adjust if needed. Also look for signs of damage or
excessive wear.
Nuts & Bolts
Check the wheels to see that the axle nuts are tight. Use a wrench to make sure all
accessible nuts, bolts, and fasteners are tight.
Underbody & Exhaust System
Check for and remove any dirt, vegetation or other debris that could be a fire hazard or interfere
with the proper operation of the kart.
Air Cleaner Housing Drain Tube

12
SAFE DRIVING PRECAUTIONS
Off-Road Use Only
Your kart and its tires are designed and manufactured for off-road use only, not for
pavement. Driving on pavement can affect handling and control. You should not drive your
kart on pavement.
WARNING
Operating this kart on paved surfaces may seriously affect handling and
control of the kart, and may cause the vehicle to go out of control.
Never operate the kart on any paved surfaces, including sidewalks,
driveways, parking lots and streets.
When driving off-road, also remember to always obey local off-road driving laws and
regulations. Obtain permission to drive on private property. Avoid posted areas and obey
"no trespassing" signs.
You should never drive your kart on public streets, roads or highways, even if they are not
paved. Drivers of street vehicles may have difficulty seeing and avoiding you, which could lead
to a collision. In many states it is illegal to operate karts on public streets, roads and highways.
WARNING
Operating this kart on public streets, roads or highways could cause a
collision with another vehicle.
Never operate this go-kart on any public streets, roads or highways,
whether dirt, gravel or pavement.
Keep Hands and Feet on Controls
When driving your kart, always keep both hands on the steering wheel and both feet
on the foot controls. Removing hands or feet away from the controls can result in loss of
balance and reduce your ability to react and control the kart.
WARNING
Removing hands from steering wheel or feet from foot controls during operation
can reduce your ability to control the kart or could cause you to lose your balance
and fall off the kart.
Always keep both hands on the steering wheel and both feet on the foot controls
of your kart during operation.
13
SAFE DRIVING PRECAUTIONS
Control Speed
Driving at excessive speeds increases the chance of an accident. In choosing a proper speed,
you need to consider the capability of your kart, the terrain, visibility and other operating
conditions, plus your own skills and experience.
WARNING
Operating this kart at excessive speeds increases your chances of
losing control of the kart, which can result in an accident.
Always drive at a speed that is proper for your kart, the terrain, visibility
and other operating conditions, and your experience.
Use Care on Unfamiliar or Rough Terrain
Before driving in a new area, always check the terrain thoroughly. Don't drive fast on unfamiliar
terrain or when visibility is limited (it's sometimes difficult to see obstructions like hidden rocks,
bumps, or holes in time to react.)
WARNING
Failure to use extra care when operating this kart on unfamiliar terrain
could result in the kart overturning or going out of control.
Go slowly and be extra careful when operating on unfamiliar terrain. Always
be alert to changing terrain conditions when operating the kart.
Never drive past the limit of visibility. Maintain a safe distance between your kart and other
off-road vehicles. Always exercise caution and use extra care on rough, slippery and loose terrain.
WARNING
Failure to use extra care when operating on excessively rough, slippery or
loose terrain could cause loss of traction or vehicle control, which could result
in an accident, including an overturn.
Do not operate on excessively rough, slippery, or loose terrain until you have
learned and practiced the skills necessary to control the kart on such
terrain. Always be especially cautious on these kinds of terrain.
Do Not Perform Stunts
You should always operate your kart in a safe and reasonable manner. When driving,
always keep all four wheels on the ground.
WARNING
Attempting wheelies, jumps, and other stunts increases the chance of an
accident, including an overturn.
Never attempt stunts, such as wheelies or jumps. Don't try to show off.

FILLING THE COOLING SYSTEM WITH COOLANT
It is very important that you do not just fill the radiator and reservoir with coolant and begin to ride the
unit. The cooling system MUST have all the air bled from it or the system will not cool the engine.
a. Remove the radiator filler cap and by-pass hose from the by-pass valve.
Radiator filler cap
By-pass hose
b. With the engine running at idle fill the radiator with coolant. Fill the radiator until coolant
comes out of the by-pass valve. When ONLY coolant comes out of the by-pass valve and
there are no air bubbles in the coolant, reconnect the by-pass hose.
c. Continue to fill the radiator until the coolant level reaches the top of the radiator neck
where the cap goes. After several minutes of idling the coolant level will drop. Refill the
radiator to the same level and monitor for several more minutes for air bubbles. If the
coolant level drops again, refill. Once the coolant level is stable and you no longer see air
bubbles, screw the radiator cap back on and fill the reservoir to the appropriate level.
