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.


We DO NOT sell

counterfeit Chinese parts.

Common Questions


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-mailNOTE:  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 clutches?  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" pitch.

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 to work.

Belt clutches are used by Carter (do not confuse with a torque converter, below).

How do I identify torque converters?  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.


(This is a partial list.  If you don't see the part for which you're looking, send us an e-mail.  Prices subject to change without notice -- e-mail us for current pricing.  Parts for Brister's Thunder Karts are subject to supply on hand -- plus a few we're having custom-fabricated -- as they are no longer in business.)
