My son's Razor Ground Force Drifter needs an upgrade. I want to do a 500watt motor upgrade and need all the parts to complete it. Can someone on the forum here provide me with all necessary parts to complete the conversion. Part numbers would be helpful. I'm looking to purchase all brand new parts.
Thanks very much. Christopher.
I like the $270 option with the throttle mounted reverse switch and am ready to make a purchase. Thanks.
I included the MOT-24500X2500B motor with the kit. If you prefer a different motor then please let me know and I will modify the kit to include it.
Please let us know if you have any questions.
One change to the kit that you might want to consider would be to not have the reverse switch on the throttle so it can not be accidentally pressed while driving. If the reverse switch was accidentally pressed when the go kart was moving then the controller could be damaged. The controller is a lot like a transmission in a car and the vehicle has to be completely stopped before switching between forward and reverse. A toggle switch for reverse could be located behind the seat or somewhere else and would be less likely to be accidentally switched, however it would also not be as easy to switch between forward and reverse directions as if the switch was on the throttle. It's totally your call on this and I just wanted to throw that information out there so you can make the right decision.
Ok with the power switch on and illuminated, all the plugs plugged in, the motor runs. Reverse works too. However the thumb throttle lights do not illuminate. Is that normal with the motor upgrade?
Ok we can live with that.
There is a 3 pin plug tagged not in use. It is side by side with the plug that is to be used. We plugged it in to make sure it was it was not needed and The throttle brings the motor to top speed much faster than when plugged into the correctly tagged plug. Is this harmful and is the motor indeed running faster?
