Cool 600ccKart

Hey gear heads alike,

I am not sure if this is the right area for this post, but I am sure someone will correct me.

I wanted to create a topic about one of my builds.
It is still in progress and is nothing new, but I think some of you will find it interesting.

I am building a gokart with cbr600 f4 motor with Ignitech ignition and other goodies.

There is a website - 600cckart.com and also a forum where I will be posting all of my updates regarding this build - don't worry, you will probably be able to find them here, if you welcome me to do so :)

Some specs:
approx 120HP (hard to find exact value online, some say 110hp...some say 100 on the wheel, not sure, but I will be using a programmable ECU + upjet)
0-100km/h sub 3 seconds (from similiar projects)
1/4mile in sub 10 seconds
250km/h is my top-speed goal to reach.

You are more than welcome to ask questions and give your opinion regarding this build.


Some progress photos

That was the general idea

Also one of the reason I opted for a rental kart frame instead of a race chassis - the more metal, the thicker metal the better.

Saving up cash for the next shipment of parts.

Madness!

IMHO, do a bunch of engine/frame/axle bracing......with a heavy hand.

drove karts as a kid, and was blown away by the 125cc shifter karts back then.

Bravo!

Looks like fun. I rode a small one with a lawnmower engine as a kid and it was fun. I can't imagine what a superbike go-kart would be like.

First start and short run.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, then video is worth a million.
But if you want to see the actual pics of this build, please visit the go-kart site.

Since the engine is so large, why did you mount it on the side? why not mount it on the rear? That way the seat and steering wheel can be centered? Im sure there is a completely logic reason, just courious

One reason - turning radius.
Now, the kart has kept majority of its original nimbleness and is still quite drivable through the corners.
With the engine behind I would have to extend the frame by a lot and then it would become only a dragrace ment machine.
+ I find that this way it looks better.

Overall the kart is 25% done :D

May I ask, where is radiator?

Considering the available hp, maybe a roll bar/cage?
(or ejection seat?)

PS. clutch is very old school!

Your own weight will be a perfect counter weight anyway. Should have engines either side.

Thanks for the support guys!

@SloKnt - Hehe, thanks man! Not even close to being done, but we are getting there!

@tary preisser - The radiator is on drivers left. (used the old one for the video, will get a new one sooner or later.)

Haha, ejection seat would be an interesting feature.
I was really thinking about welding on one of those over head roll bars like the old school F1 had (and some smaller class formulas)
But then I need to have a full racing seat with 5 point harness, which would not really suit the look of the kart as of right now.
+ don't think that that would save you if the kart actually rolled. Might be better of flying out of it and sliding, offcourse, need to wear leather for that :D


@devilsdabs - exactly, drivers weight counters the weight of the engine nicely.

Try putting a motor either side then you'll have a perfectly balanced ride.
