Thank you guy’s for all the feed back. I can see doing it on a chassis that you are running a 4 stroke motor and you cut off the R/S seat strut, but to cut the L/S off I just couldn’t understand it. I was worried that if I didn’t like this chassis it would be hard to sell because of the strut being cut off. I am going to fabricate a new O.E.M strut to weld back on, but now I don’t feel like I have to rush to get it welded back on. I will try driving it first with the bolt on one that came on the chassis, and pray it is better than my other kart ( 08 road rebel ).
