Selecting a Go-Kart Clutch

There are many variations to consider. However, one thing is certain. The engine clutch on a go-kart is one of the toughest applications ever required of a modestly priced centrifugal clutch, and if the go-kart is direct drive, the engine clutch must absorb a considerable larger shock load than others. This is especially true where the rider is patching out, and the beginner who holds the brake on and rides very slow, allowing the clutch to engage and disengage repeatedly. Care should always be exercised when selecting a go-kart clutch. For more information on a clutch recommendation, please contact Comet Industries or your distributor.
