I never mentioned you were new to karting, or in any way suggested that you were.
I was just trying to help you find some stuff, as I am a big believer that even if vendors have stopped selling a certain product doesn’t mean they won’t have a few products left over that couldn’t sell.
I had the same issues with my old blueprinted TM moto, hard to find parts for it. Some guys even from this ( old forum ) were able to steer me to some one who actually had many parts in stock that were just collecting dust.
A good guy to contact was George Barks, in Orange county Ca.
I don’t know if he’s still around, but he did carry many stuff for TM and Pavesi, Motori 7.
I wish you the best of luck
P.S. Robert Lawson has a good valid point, about having your stuff custom built, if you can’t find any. I may be built to last longger than the factory stuff anyway.
