Whether it is to maximize the fun during a day on the track or to take care of the equipment once you get home after an outing, there are many operations that those who enjoy karting, are routinely called on to perform: cleaning the suit, for example, as well as balancing the tires or finding a way to start the OK or OKJ kart autonomously with ease. Here are four small tips to facilitate the “hard life of a kart driver” in a smart way.

1 MANUAL ACCELERATOR FOR THE OK AND OKJ KARTS

Push starting an OK or OKJ motorized kart on your own is not an easy task, especially for younger drivers who have less physical strength. To simplify this operation, it is possible to install a manual accelerator lever on the kart. By positioning it, generally in the top rear part of the seat, it allows to partially operate the accelerator cable so as to facilitate the starting of the engine when push starting the kart.

2 WHEEL BALANCING TOOL

Although balancing the tires may sometimes seem a particularly tedious task for those who want to get straight onto the track, it is actually a very important operation to do, both for performance and driving control. To perform a correct balancing, the wheel balancing tool is an indispensable device. Mount the complete wheel assembly on its hub, spin the wheel and wait for the rotation to end. Then glue the weights to the highest point of the rim. This operation must be repeated adding or removing weight until the wheel is balanced in any position.
