"Thanks. Checked and replaced: Reeds Carb Battery Exhaust Plug Have fuel going in and a decent spark. However, taken cylinder and head off and piston ring looks seized in place. (Doesn’t move at all) Will try loosening it and see how I go.…"

"Is the exhaust blocked up? My 2t dirt bikes refuse to run if the exhaust bung is in. I've also had mud wasps build nests in clubman and rotax exhaust ends and that prevents the engine from firing"

"Before you tear the whole thing apart, first up remove the carby , manifold and reed block and make sure the reeds are all 100% there.  You cannot see the whole reed petals without removing the manifold from the reed block. "

"Hi Jamie it sounds to me like you need to replace the needle and seat in the carby.  They can get stuck / blocked and this often causes the fuel to end up in the airbox.  Hope this helps mate."

"I ran a 2014 OTK Kosmic in TAG R MEDIUM from early 2016 to the end of 2017 and it was a dream, really responsive to change, easy to feel out (in terms of what to change set up wise) and one of the most durable karts ( in my experience anyways). In…"

"Arrow X5 would be my choice, Australian Made, cheaper parts, local manufacturer if you damage your chassis. Any they seem to be winning a lot with fewer chassis out there."
