    if you are running a 20in rear tire a 14/40 setup is the best setup IMO

    You can change the gearing and make it too hard for the motor to turn the wheels. Or spin so easy you will never get traction

    So a 15-40 with 22" would be to easy or to hard? I'm changing again but I'm experimenting and don't wanna do damage

    I understand this is an old thread but thought maybe I might get a little help from those that know this subject.

    I am looking at putting a Warrior 350 engine in a go kart. Looking at the gear ratios and if I wanted to maintain the power ranges in a different package... does this seem accurate?

    16 tooth engine sprocket with a 24 tooth axle sprocket, using an 11.00" tire.
    16/24=0.666 multiplied by 11 = a gear ratio of 7.333

    If the stock Warrior has a gear ratio of 7.13, would using the combination above result in the same expectations of a stock warrior?

    As a side note, a stock Warrior I found says weighs around 395 pounds, the go kart should weigh about 150 pounds.

    Any help is appreciated, thanks

    Hit the nail right on the head. the go-cart is much lighter, which means you'll go faster, that is...if you get ANY traction. A cart's treads won't be as grippy...or grippy at all, at that...compared to a Warrior's. And that extreme weight difference won't give you anything to push on the ground with.

    I was thinking of taking the warrior motor and suspension and making a two seater go cart

    Stock gearing? If you end up doing it, I'd be super interested in a build log of it.
