    Hi, guys

    I have 2, 2015  Ricciardo Karts, and I’m trying to install new chassis protectors, but I noticed the ones that fit OTK karts don’t fit very well on this Ricciardo chassis, as the tabs are slightly different, this usually is a very simple task for me, as I am a certified mechanic by trade, but these parts are a bit different and making modifications just don’t seem right for this application.

    Can anyone tell me what works good on Ricciado or Birel ART Karts?

    Also last question for the day. Can a small fuel tank from a cadet kart fit as a direct fit on a full size Ricciardo/Birel Kart? Thank you in advance. Freddy.

    I use the thin stamped steel ones like the ones sold by MRC and PKT.  They bolt to the floor pan and not the chassis tabs.  That way you don’t bend chassis tabs, stiffen anything and they have more ground clearance and don’t bottom out as easily.

    The plastic ones that we make are easy to re-drill to fit most any application, and the work well.
