    Where is the best place to get a full width bumper? Also what is the best mounting kit? It’s a 2006 first kart

    Any luck Andrew?

    I’m not sure what the back-end mounting points look like on a ’06 First Kart, but most will use the bolt/bushing kit here:

    Last year I updated a 2005 tonykart with full width rear bumper.  I recommend the quick disconnect mounting kit, though it does weight a tad more than the regular RLV kit:

    Also, I was originally going to get the KG bumper (I think??) and Fast-tech told me they are too soft.  I went with their recommendation and got the Righetti instead.  It’s held up nicely.

    I usually deal with Fast-tech or Acceleration karting for parts; they are very good/friendly, but I’m sure you can find these at your local shop if you prefer to support them.

    Got the bumper and put it on. Very easy and very happy with it. Now I just have to find new mounts for my silencer because it just to mount off the steel bumper. I’m guessing everyone uses a pinch style clamp?
