Driving it on the street or a parking lot aside from other concerns will burn up your clutch and probably get you a flat tire. We’re all jonesin’ this time of year.

I left my kt100 kart in an unheated barn for 10 years and it fired up and ran good. Tires don’t freeze but put some tape over your intake and exhaust holes or a mouse will build a nest and store seeds in there also, watch out for the chipmunk.
