New Vortex ROK VLR 100cc for Karting

Do we know what’s different on the carb on the VLR vs KA yet?


(Jeff Colegrove) #36

Same carb, different part number stamped on each.

Very interesting. I’ve got a couple hours on mine so far, it fires the instant I hit the button, quicker than my x30s.

Hoping to continue racking up the miles.

How does it fire up relative to your much loved Leopard? Nothing beats a Leopard.

When I ran the KA at the Gopro WKA race- it started in the 2-3 second range (during the day). Would take quite a bit longer when it sat over night.

I believe the Venturi size differential is the reason to blame for the different start up time between leopard/Ka and the x30 which utilizes a much bigger venturi.

Anyone know how much horsepower one makes?


(James McMahon) #41

Approx 22HP from what I understand.

I don’t see anything regarding power there though. Unless I missed it?


(Ryan Odi) #44

I’ve looked at that many times. No horsepower indicated.

Yeah sorry. I thought I read it in there somewhere. Guess not.
