The proper amount and grade of engine oil will have a great impact on the life of the engine. Checking the oil daily and changing the oil as listed in the maintenance schedule is the most important maintenance procedure there is for the engine.

CHECKING THE ENGINE OIL

Make sure the Go Kart is on level ground
Check engine oil level by removing and looking at the oil plug/ dipstick. Oil should be close to the top of the serrated portion of the dipstick.
If engine oil is low, add oil until oil is at the top of the serrated portion of the dipstick. Use the correct grade of oil as listed in this manual.
Do not over or under fill the engine with oil, this could damage the engine.

CHANGING THE ENGINE OIL

Make sure the engine is warm before attempting to drain the oil. A warm engine will help the oil drain quicker.
Remove the oil fill plug
Remove the drain bolt, located on the back bottom portion of the engine.
Allow the oil to drain in an appropriate container.
Install the drain plug and fill with the appropriate type of oil as listed in this manual. This Go Kart requires 37qt. (.35L) of engine oil.
