OF A 60 MINI KART
2 Which area of the kart needs the most attention while cleaning?
The area that gets dirty the most is the engine. In particular, the pinion-chain-gear wheel unit needs the most care. First, with the help of a brush soaked in petrol, clean the chain thoroughly removing any accumulated debris; repeat this on the gear wheel and finally take care of the engine. Therefore, spray WD-40 over the entire area, and finish the cleaning with paper or rags.
3 What has to be checked when cleaning the transmission?
The chain is certainly the most delicate organ, subject to strong stresses and friction: cleaning it after every session helps to preserve it. In fact, debris that is accumulated on the track or, even worse, off-track, can lengthen it, change the pitch, until it is totally ruined. If a minikart’s chain is dark this means that it has been working without lubrication and must be replaced.
