So I finally bought a 206, about 4 years late to the party. I know nothing, so I have many questions, most of which have probably already been answered so sorry in advance if I’m repeating others.
How do you determine gearing? I ran a 206 race a month ago and missed the gearing by like 4 teeth. I’m used to figuring out gearing by either minimum RPM (in KA100) or maximum RPM (back in Yamaha). The problem is the 206 has a rev limiter for the high RPM and a high-stall clutch which means I can’t find minimum RPM either.
What’s the clutch maintenance like? The clutch seems weird since it starts engaging, revs higher as it’s slipping, and then the RPM’s drop as it fully engages. Is that normal?
Are the tire pressures any different? I imagine you have to run higher tire pressures than in a 2-stroke since the kart isn’t working the tires as much, but they run the same tires in 206 and KA out here, would you just run the same pressures in both?
What general engine maintenance has to be done on the 206? I had the float set before I ran it, is that all? What about oil changes?
Also, unrelated, but I’ve been referred to as Aaron from KartPulse at the track before. I just find that mildly amusing.
