|So after 10+ years in KM I have decided to change things up a bit and that means my current complete KM setup is available. This is the easy button for anyone who wants to run KM and is great for those of us with limited space.. I even kept racing for 6 months during a house remodel with the trailer in the apartment parking lot. I am looking for $6,500 for everything!! That is 1 chassis, 2 complete carb to pipe motor packages, all tuning parts, Spares, and Kart Specific tools inc tire changing tools. Did I mention a full set of tires are $225 shipped to your door. I will also be happy to assist the new owner with getting up to speed on the in's and out's. Kart is currently setup for someone 6 foot plus and 200 plus pounds (I am 6'4 and weigh 230#) Package is located in Nashville TN
Trailer has a cool stacker setup with electric winch for easy one person loading and unloading of the kart.

Both are SGM SL204 motors from 2004/2005. The stock motor is slightly off the Peak power of the latest ICC/KZ motors but has a wider power band (area under the curve) the “ICC Built” motor gives up little to nothing compared to any legal ICC/KZ motor or MOD MOTO. Both are easy and forgiving to tune, with a slightly conservative jet you rarely need to change anything. No reason either motor can’t win at Nationals!!
Parts are available through Excel Racing in the Northwest, Russell Karting in KC, and online direct from Italy. These motors are known for their high quality parts machining, and reliability.
Primary Motor (broad flexible power) on Kart now.
100% fresh at the start of the 2013 season (I did the break in)
Last crank (bottom end) rebuild was done by Jim Russell Jr at Russell Karting in KC (approx. 5 hours on bottom end)
I put a new top end after I slightly burnt a piston at the Toledo Pro in 2014 (no damage to cylinder) so about 2 hours on current piston (inspected beginning of 17 season… looked brand new.. 0 blow by)
Revs to approx. 14,200 RPM in overrev, ideal shift is 13,500ish
Spare Motor (better top end power at the slight expense of bottom end torque)
Not Stock, built to the limit of ICC Rules by Genesis Karting (the original Canadian Importer) for top level Sprint Karting.
Bottom end time unknown was bought with a claimed 4 hours on bottom end I put about 4 more on it before moving to spare status, Top end had 4 hours on it.
Issues: clutch seal leaks oil from Transmission to the Dry Clutch and over time it gets on the friction disks and the material breaks up… not a problem if you remove and clean each event but annoying… needs a new seal or 2 to fix, other issue is one of the studs that holds the cylinder to the case is broken… easy fix on that one.
Revs to approx. 14,600 RPM in overrev, ideal shift is 13,700ish
Spare motor is in a nice plastic scribner box for storage / shipping
Full set of new clutch friction disks, used set of steel floaters in good condition, Large number of used friction disks and aluminum floaters that can be used in a pinch.
New clutch springs and retainers (x6)
2 top end kits (piston, ring, cir-clips, pin, and roller bearing) .. 1 regular, one coated (claimed to eliminate the need to break in the piston)
Spare set of new Reeds
In total there are 2 carbs
First is setup with the “Tech Sav” setup developed in Europe (on the kart now and better I think esp at launch/midrange)
Second is setup with the Jim Russell Jr Setup he used for road racing a few years ago (less smoky in grid)
Total of 2 Pipes and u bends (one on kart one for spare motor)
A few new spark plugs and numerous used ones

Electronic version of parts book, years of setup notes and a good jet calculator for Microsoft excel, and gearing calculator for excel.

set of axle gears and motor gears to cover autocross, sprint and road racing, includeing extra c clip(s) to secure motor gear.

I would guess 1400-1600 pounds fully loaded Trailer is dirty and one fender was reshaped after a blowout towing to the Grenada Match Tour in 2016.
