Helping the builders who have yet to start
« on: 15 March 2020, 12:55:45 pm »
Right now, as I write this there are 31 guests on line. Obviously that means there is a vast untapped number of folks who are showing interest.
On facebook I posted asking why those who had not started are yet to do so.
Clearly, with only about half a dozen responses, the reasons are not clear, but I am very keen to help folks into these incredible creations.
To that end, I suggest that perhaps we establish a "buddy system" where folks can feel they have some place to go to ask the questions they may be reluctant to ask.
There is only one stupid question, the one you never asked.
I don't know it all, for one thing I don't weld, but I am now building my eighth cyclekart, hopefully I have learned a bit along the way!
Please folks, don't be shy, ask for help, anything is valid, either on this forum, or message.

Though I'm on the fringe geographically, I'm only too happy to share what knowledge I have to help anyone who needs it. If there is anyone in South Wales who needs direct help then I'm quite happy to do that too.

I’m happy to offer practical help to builders in the Surrey/Berkshire/Hampshire area.

Good morning!  I have just joined the forum - please can someone point me to a any specs or regs concerning the construction/performance of a cycle kart eligible for UK events?  Many thanks, Richard.

Good morning Richard and welcome.

CK guidelines/rules can be found here... http://www.cyclekartsgb.com/what-is-a-cyclekart/what-is-a-cyclekart-and-rulesguidelines/

Or simply put, Honda GX200 or clone, allowed to go to stage 1 mods, so max 9.5 - 10 HP, I don't think any of us have actually felt the need to do this, all I've done is changed to a tuned exhaust to give a boost to low revs torque, and removed the screw that keeps it's revs to 3500, I think I get all of an extra 300 RPM! Others have changed carbs.

If I could suggest go with bog standard engine, drive the wheels off it, have a blast, and change things as and when you feel you must :-)
