3 Maintenance Tips to Keep Your Tomberlin Crossfire 150r in Good Condition

Posted by Cindy Carter on

Your Tomberlin Crossfire 150r will give you the best bang for your bucks as long as it is properly maintained and serviced. Without routine maintenance, it’s unlikely to stand the test of steep climbs and rough terrains — can’t say if you are planning to park it in your garage round the year.

Keeping your Tomberlin Crossfire 150r maintained will also help you get the most out of your go-karting sessions, giving you much-needed power and the ability to beat any obstacle you find your way.

That said, taking care of a go-kart is no simple feat. You need to consider a lot of things to ensure that it remains in good condition and outperforms other karts on the track.

Here are few tips to help you keep your kart in excellent condition around the year:

Check the engine oil regularly
For the Tomberlin Crossfire 150r to run perfectly, it’s vital to change the engine oil after every 50 hours or once per season. Should you continue to drive it without changing the engine oil, you may increase the risk of wear and tear, which can shorten the engine lifespan.

To check the engine oil, park the kart on a flat surface and remove the dipstick and wipe it off with a clean cloth. Then, push it back in the oil section until its thread prevents it from going any further. Take it out again and check if the oil level is between the minimum and maximum indicators.

If the oil still retains hints of its original color or hasn’t turned black, you can add new oil to reach the required level. But if it looks burnt, consider replacing it. That said, the best course of action is to change it at regular intervals, as mentioned in the user manual.

Clean the air filter
Since go-karts usually operate in a dusty environment, it’s crucial to clean their air filter every three months for maximum engine performance. If the filter is clogged with dust or debris, the engine may struggle to generate the required amount of horsepower. Besides, failure to regularly clean the air filter can also lead to engine failure.

It’s also a good practice to change the air filter, as mentioned in the user manual. You can get a new filter from any dealer who provides go-kart accessories and parts, including Tomberlin Crossfire 150r rear-drive and filters.

Clean your kart regularly
Dirt and debris have the potential of ruining even the world’s strongest mechanics, let alone your Tomberlin Crossfire. Since your go-kart is likely to operate in dusty conditions, it is more susceptible to gathering dirt, debris, and other natural elements, all of which can affect the kart’s exterior and damage the engine performance if they somehow enter the engine through the air filter.
To avoid these devastating consequences, wash your kart regularly using a suitable cleaning solution and water to get rid of accumulated dirt and debris.
