If being stored for the winter you should drain all the fuel from the fuel tank and the carburetor or use a fuel stabilizer to prevent gumming up the carburetor. It is also best to store the go-kart indoors and out of the rain. If left outside consider covering the kart with a tarp or one of our go-kart covers.

* The air filter should be cleaned every 20 hours of run time and more often if riding in very dusty areas.
