Parts Store Comments:
"Just wanted to let you know I got the starter in plenty of time for
Christmas and the boys were so happy Christmas Day. They
installed it yesterday and all is fine. I will be sure to use
your site again for any go-kart needs and definitely recommend you to
anyone else. Thanks again, and have a Happy New Year!!"

The market is being flooded with
counterfeit Chinese parts.
Chinese copies of authentic parts
(including Comet, as well as Chinese-built karts, such as Hammerhead
and American Sportworks / American Landmaster) are being sold as the
original part number, but they are NOT the original part. They
are typically of inferior quality.
We sell very few after-market parts, and
we clearly identify them as such in our online store. Most are
made in the U. S.

Please note we are not engineers; we
specialize in replacement parts, but we do not modify karts, nor
can we give advice on modifying a kart. All sales are final
-- make sure you know what you're ordering. Prices are
subject to change without notice or due to typographical error;
however, if your total is different from your shopping cart, we will
e-mail you for authorization for the revised amount.
There is no warranty whatsoever on clutches and belts.
Warranty on other items will be limited to replacement of
for an RMA before returning parts you think are defective.
In order to
properly track your order, all shipped orders are accepted only via the
online store. No orders are accepted by phone.
We ship only to street addresses in the United States, and charge only to
credit cards with U. S. addresses. Freight is a standard $9*
(contiguous 48 states). Engines, foam, special
orders, and oversize objects are subject to additional freight
charges. Texas residents add 6.25% state sales tax.
Alaska & Hawaii e-mail for freight quote, or submit your order and we
will contact you.
Your shipment will normally
be shipped via Fed-Ex Ground, but the USPS may be used for Alaska and
When you use our
your credit card info is submitted via a secure, encrypted connection, and
it's very easy for you (or us) to track your order. Money orders are
also accepted. Your credit card will not be charged until the
order is ready to ship, unless it is a special order. Special
orders are charged when we order the parts.
We utilize flat-rate shipping for
most parts (a few oversize/overweight may be excepted) shipped within the
continental United States, regardless of the size of the order. Even
with multiple increases in shipping costs to us, we have not raised our
rate in years*. We average a loss of about $7 per Fed-ex package.
This rate may seem high on a small
order, but Fed-Ex has a minimum charge of about $7 -- even if we ship a
feather across town. It gets worse with home delivery,
distance, weight, and size. With the possible exception of
additional insurance -- and that's only on large orders --
the value of the shipment has
absolutely nothing to do with the freight rate.
It may seem silly to pay $11 to ship a $1 part, but that means it's a good
time to add to your order and take advantage of the flat rate. It
has nothing to do with what it costs us to ship it.
Shipping costs to us also include:
including boxes, tape, mailing labels, toner, paper, etc.,
the cost of the computers and
printers (the latter of which we wear out regularly) to process the orders
and print the mailing labels, order, invoices, packing lists, etc.,
labor (it takes 15 - 20
minutes minutes to process an order that has only one part in it) to pull
the order from the warehouse, run the credit card transaction, print it,
pull the parts, box the parts, enter the shipping info online, affix the
labels to the box, remove the parts from the computerized inventory, and
update the general ledger, and,
the Fed-ex pick-up charge.
We estimate we
lose money on orders less than $24 (not including the
flat-rate shipping charge).
This is why many
companies have a minimum purchase requirement.

these diagrams before contacting us about part numbers -- it's too easy
for us to call an item by a different name, and we don't want to ship you

We cannot ship to APO/FPO, P. O. boxes (except when using USPS
in Alaska or Hawaii), nor outside the United States.

How do I identify the
torque converter belt I need? If you have the
old belt, you can generally find the number on it. If
you do not have the old belt, get as much information as you
can -- kart manufacturer, kart model, brand of torque
converter, engine horsepower -- and send us that to us in an
e-mail. NOTE: Comet belts are identified by
six numbers, followed by an "A" or a "C." There is no
difference in the "A" and "C" belts.
How do I identify the
chain I need? If you don't have a part number,
look at the side of the chain. Often, the "size" of the
chain will be stamped on the side, indicated by number "35,"
"41," "40," or "420." The picture on the side
(in our online store) may also
assist. Then, count the barrels in the chain. The
chain is identified by the size and the number of barrels
(length). For example, if you see "41" on the side of
your chain, and count 60 barrels, you need a "41x60."
Note: Chain length is always an even number. If
you have an odd number of barrels, order an
offset of the same size to give you the odd number.
For example, if the above chain had 61 barrels, you would
order a "41x60" and an "Offset, #41."
How do I identify
Provide tire size as written on the side of
the tire (e.g., 4.10x3.50x5), plus the tread style (e.g.,
stud, slick, ATV, cleat).
How do I identify
Standard centrifugal clutches are
identified by the crankshaft size (5/8", 3/4", or 1") and by
the distance between the teeth (pitch) on the sprocket (3/8"
or 1/2"). #35 clutches are 3/8" pitch, #41 are 1/2"
There are several specialty clutches. The
greaseable clutch was used on Brister's Design & Mfg.
karts (Mean Machine and The Go-Kart Factory) and later model
Brister's Thunder Karts, Murray, and Yellow Jacket** karts.
This clutch is identified by a
grease fitting on the end of the crankshaft.
You must use the special "GF" clutch for the grease mechanism
Belt clutches are used by Carter (do not confuse with a
torque converter, below).
How do I identify torque
Torque converters are actually comprised of
different parts, including the DRIVER UNIT, DRIVEN UNIT,
JACKSHAFT, and BELT. There are many different types of
torque converters, and many different belts, so you will need
to be very specific when ordering torque converter parts.
We are a distributor for Comet torque converters, and carry
the replacement parts for Max Torque, as well.
