Transporting 4cycle karts

Looking for options to transport and store karts. With the 206 would there be any harm or issues in storing and transporting the kart vertically? With oil? Without oil?

If you store it vertically with the kart on it’s rear bumper you’ll end up with oil in the combustion chamber, so you would probably have to pull the engine, or transport it on it’s nose somehow.

Draining the oil will help for sure, might be worth testing if nobody else is able to confirm that you can effectively get enough oil out of there to store the engine vertically.

If you drain the oil you can store and transport vertically with no issues. Also recommend draining the fuel from the carb, or alternatively unhook the fuel line and start it and let it run dry.


Pull the tank, drain the oil, drain the carb and you’re good to go.
