    Hello

    I recently bought a benik kart with a mini rok engine for my son.  Since we are in New York we wont be using it for a couple of months.  I was wondering what is the proper way to store it in the winter.  Is it as easy as just run it out of fuel or is there more I should do.

     

    Thanks

    It was recommended to me years ago to remove the spark plug, add a little Marvel’s Mystery oil into the cylinder, run the piston up and down a couple of times, then put the plug back in. Drain the fuel from the carb. Before next season, rebuild the carb.
