Go Karts For Sale

A go-kart is a small four-wheeled vehicle that comes in numerous shapes, sizes, colours and forms. Many people purchase go-karts for recreational purposes, while others purchase them for racing. These small vehicles can be great fun for responsible drivers. Instead of having to go somewhere to ride go-karts, buying your own is a great option for those who enjoy riding them frequently. One way to save a great deal of money is to buy a second-hand go kart.

Different Types of Go Karts

Not all go karts are built the same and some are built for racing, while others are built for recreational purposes only.

Electric go-karts are a popular option because they are very low maintenance and run on a lead-acid battery that can be plugged in and charged after use. They are pollution-free and emit no smoke, and these can be driven on indoor racetracks, as well as outdoors. They only tend to run up to around 20 minutes before the batteries die, though, which is not suitable for those interested in riding their go-karts for prolonged periods of time. A popular manufacturer of electric go karts is Honda.

Four-stroke engines are another option. These are great for racing, recreational purposes, and their engines can be modified to reach up to 20 horsepower. Some manufacturers of these include Yamaha, KTM, Kohler and Briggs & Stratton.

Buying a Used Go Kart

With second-hand go-karts for sale, it is important to inspect them thoroughly before making a purchase. Take it for a test drive if possible to ensure it runs properly, and ensure the engine starts up cleanly with no black smoke. Make sure it has no structural damage, because if it does, this could be a sign that it could have other issues as well. Check that all the braces and supports are straight and in good condition. On Gumtree ZA, there is a variety of go-karts for sale in great condition for affordable prices. If you are looking for a used go kart for racing or recreational purposes, either electric or with a four-stroke engine, you'll find it on Gumtree ZA.
