Q: What kind of oil should I use in my Yerf-Dog Go-Kart engine?
A:
Please refer to the engine manual that is included in the owner's information and hardware packet. For go-karts only, use 1 pint of SAE 30 weight motor oil, EXCEPT for 150cc Howit engine go-karts, which require 24 to 31 oz. of 10w-40 weight motor oil.

Q: Can I make my Yerf-Dog Go-Kart go faster?
A: Not without modifying the go-kart and, as stated in your owner’s manual, any modification to the go-kart would void the manufacturer’s warranty. More importantly, increasing the top end speed could adversely affect the stability of the go-kart and make it difficult to control.

Q: How fast will my Yerf-Dog Go-Kart go?
A: The engines have a governor that limits their output and the go-kart's top speed. The top speed of our go-karts with 6 HP to 150cc engines range 30 to 35 mph.

Q: Can I get a repair manual for my Yerf-Dog Go-Kart?
A
: No, Yerf-Dog does not offer a repair manual. See your local dealer/service center for repair assistance. If you do not know the name and phone number of your nearest dealer/service center, please call 888-926-6554 for assistance.

Q: Can I buy parts for my go-kart from Yerf-Dog, even if it is a different brand?
A: You may but it is not recommended. You should contact the manufacture of the brand you have to get the correct part. Important: Using universal replacement parts on your Yerf-Dog Go-Kart can be potentially dangerous. Often, universal parts do not meet the OEM part specifications.
