Can you add reverse to a go-kart?

Installing a reverse gearbox is a great way to equip your go-kart with a forward, backward and neutral gear.

How does a reverse gear work?

Reverse gear is usually on a fourth shaft to effect a change in direction. The gears themselves are not fixed to the output shaft, but freewheel. Locking collars, on the other hand, rotate with the output shaft and can shift or slide back and forth to engage one of the gears. That’s why we call it “shifting” gears.

Does a go-kart have a transmission?

Most off-road and racing go-karts use a transmission, unless they have a direct drive configuration. A transmission provides controlled mechanical power from the engine to the rear axle of the go-kart. You’ll most likely come across go-karts that use a torque converter or a clutch, as a transmission.

How much is a reverse gear?

The cost to repair a reverse gear problem varies depending on what is causing the gear failure. If an externally mounted control module solenoid is the culprit you are in luck because it should only cost about $300 to fix.
