i gotta say, if you have to ask and don't know yourself, there probably isn't mutch you can do that isn't gonna cost you a little more than a little bit of money.realy all depends on how mutch money your wanting to spend, though.

If it is chain drive and you dont mind sacrificing a little accelleration change the gear ratio. I did on my 5 horse and it flys now.

Nitrous on a stock 5hp engine will make it throw a rod in about 5 seconds. If your looking for cheap horsepower, bore out your carb, shave the eyebrow, put a header for a racing go kart on it, and possibly change the cam. I would recomend a 94-ss cam from Dyno Cams if your engine is stock.

You can also remove the govener while your at it, but I would recomend a ARC billet rod. If you remove the govener and run the engine with the stock rod, you are running a risk of throwing the rod.

Bolt a blower on to your carb. when more air goes into your carb.It will increas yor horsepower by alot. welcome

there is a bent metal pease on your throttle were it will stop at a serten spot it you bend it in your carborator will open wider. and you will get more torqu and speed.

-- robbie bonner (, June 26, 2004.

look, a 5 horse power doesnt have much potential. instead of spending a crapload on aftermarket, just buy a bigger engine. in the end you will probly save more.

ok peolples i have a gokart my self its a racing one 6.5 hp its an old tecumseh shes a beuat now to make your gokart go faster 1.take off the govenor 2.take off the airfilter 3. get nos 4.give it good gas like premuium not regular 5.get a cheeta gear (the sprocket is smaller) 6.get bigger back tires.

-- justin thorne (, July 02, 2004.

you can put a 4hp head on it to increase compression. or if your skilled enough weld up the cam lobes and build a straight header.

just put nitro

-- andy (, October 22, 2004.

Now I've came to the conclusion that you all ARE FUCKING IDIOTS!!! God damn idiotic kids! What you need to do is larger diamete valves, bigger camshaft, a stroker crankshaft, high compression piston, and re-jet the carb to run alcohol. Then put a strait pipe for your exhaust and buy a performance air filter. Then get some different sprockets. All in all your still gonna go slow as FUCK!@ Just get a 125cc 2-stroke dirt bikes motor and put on that bitch! DUMBASS MOTHER FUCKER!


-- Insaneike! (, October 24, 2004.

You cant put nos on a fucking 5HP stock engine. Youll fuck your engine in a matter of seconds. A bigger back tire will actually make you go slower. See its all in math. A smaller tire will have more rotations then a bigger one.
