      Hi guys,
      I’ve just stumbled across the forum and wondered if any one can shed some light on an hesitation issue I’m having with my kart?
      Problem I’m having is the kart is really holding back and hesitating quite a lot, it seems be before the power valve opens, I’ve fitted these new parts to try to eliminate:
      New Power Valve kit
      Replaced the jet from a 165 to a 152
      New fuel filter
      New fuel pump internals
      New spark plug
      Charged the battery
      I did all these last week and the hesitation is still there, can anyone offer any info to help me out please?

      Thanks in advance.

      Welcome to the forum.
      First, check your grounds. Then pull the carb and disassemble it. Take the needle valve out and clean the carb body thoroughly. Don’t get any cleaner on the needle valve. There is an internal fuel filter. Clean it out. Assemble the carb. Check for a float with fuel in it. Check the float heights. Last, be sure that the vent tube access the top of the carb has an opening in it.

      Hi,

      Thank you for the advice, the only thing that I haven’t done on the list is check the grounds and the float chamber heights.

      To be honest I’m unsure how to check the heights?

      Thanks again.

      Use the link below to download the jetting and power valve article by John Savage. John recommends a 3mm float height. That’s a good place to start. I used 4mm but I come from a road race background.
      Note: you can download the article but you won’t be able to print it.

      We’ve had an issue with the engine not revving consistently past 13k – Jr Max with EVO. I finally tried using 2 gaskets on the crank pickup. Amazingly, even on the stand, the engine sound changed, and it is now a lot better. We’ve only had 3 laps at the end of the track day with this change, so need to test it some more, but maybe worth trying.
