Yamaha Go-Kart Accessories
When you're a kid or even a kid at heart, driving around in a go-kart is a lot of fun. These are vehicles that you can take to specific go-kart tracks and race against other drivers or just tool around the neighbourhood in. Yamaha is a premier manufacturer of go-karts and, like all motorised vehicles, there are some parts that need replacing from time to time as well as accessories to soup up your go-kart.
What types of go-karts are there?
Although a basic go-kart, such as Yamaha carts, are all you need for the streets and parking lots around your home, there are actually different types of go-karts designed for specific purposes as well as ages of drivers, such as:
- Kids' go-karts: ages 4-7
- Cadet sprint go-karts: ages 8-12
- Touch and go-karts: ages 12-15
- Shifter go-karts: ages 16 and older
- Oval go-karts: all ages
Kids' go-karts are the safest as they only have a 50cc engine. Oval go-karts have the largest body and offer the most protection. Touch and go-karts and shifter go-karts feature 125cc engines and can reach speeds of up to 200 kph.
What are some accessories and parts that a Yamaha go-kart might need?
Tires are often needed to be replaced on Yamaha go-karts and other go-karts, especially when used in competitions. Brake pads, drums and rotors also wear out frequently as well as parts on the engine or even the engine itself. Some accessories to consider for your Yamaha go-kart include:
- Driving gloves
- Chest protector
In addition, cleaning supplies for the go-kart body and interior will help extend its longevity. A battery charger will ensure that it is ready to run at a moment's notice.
