Scare yourself sh*t-less with this KT100 rTop-Kart acing go-kart. This is not a toy nor a Mario Kart costume accessory for Halloween (yes the thought crossed my mind). I recently bought this at a VERY good price, so I am going to do the same and sell it at a very good price as well.

I bought this as a 1997 Top-Kart race kart, however, after a little diggin', I believe it is a 2000 or 2001. It is ready to go/race and comes with:

• Yamaha KT100 blue-printed engine which has apx. 3-4 hours of use ($ 1,400 worth of motor, crankcase, carb and ignition assembly)
• New Horstman clutch – I am not 100% sure which type it is but am confident it is a Horstman DXL. Thes are not cheap: $ 550
• New Dunlop tires ($ 400) - no races on them, just a couple of parking lot sprints.
• New Douglas Quantum Aluminum wheels ($ 400)
• New Hubs, Sprocket and Chain ($ 200)
• G.E.M. Engine Mount and MRP clutch bracket
• Vertical Kart Stand ($ 150)
• New Fuel Tank with new gas lines and air box (2-hole Straight) - ($ 350)
• Impact Starter (you will need to hook this up to a 12v battery)
• Newer rotor and brake pads (recently rebuilt caliper)
• Newer Tire Rod Ends and Tie Rod assemblies

The blue plastic has some scrapes (and stickers) but could easily be sanded down and repainted and it would look almost new. It will need a new number plate for the back and could use a new number cowling for the front as it has a crack on the bottom (this is a $ 35 piece).

Current seat will hold comfortably a person that is 145-170lb (obviously depending on your buffness and/or your holiday eating habits).

I also have another KT100 motor with a blown piston head. It could be rebuilt – you would have to get a new piston and have the time and patience to rebuild it. Included as well is box full of other spares that were replaced w/the newer parts.

I have extra clutch oil and 2 stroke oil for the kart that I can throw with it (8:1 mix).

This is a steal at US$ 1,200 for EVERYTHING. Do not let your girlfriend drive it…she will literally scared the piss out of herself…LOL. This is a 70-80mph kart.

Here are some pics - if you are serious and need more pics and/or want to come and see it in person, let me know.
