Thank You for the info. I just got the kart for my son. He ran TAG for 3 years and wanted to try shifter. We ran an Un sealed Rotax. I’m a heavy truck mechanic by trade and I had no trouble doing the work on the Rotax because the parts and service information are readily available. I’m finding that Maxter is more of a mystery there isn’t much in the way of service manuals or information I found some parts diagrams but that’s about it. The engine runs fine and supposedly has low time on it but I’d like to do a top end to have a starting point.
I’m assuming it’s basically the same procedure as the Rotax But any tips or info would be appreciated.
Dan taking it apart shouldn’t be a problem for if your a mechanic. I haven’t taken mine apart yet, but I was a motorcycle mechanic at one time, they are all close to the same. the one thing you want to make for yourself is a box made from a 2×4’s standing up on the 1 1/2 side. ( 12″ x 11″ ) Take the clutch side of the motor apart first then flip it over and split it from the ignition side. Make sure you tap on the countershaft (drive – output shaft ) so the trans doesn’t fall out, and pay attention to make sure if the trans lifts out of one of the bearings that you don’t drop a washer if it has any.
