Hello everyone this is my first post on here so apologies if this is all wrong. I have just won a 2018 Vemme Kart and was wondering if it's okay to store it sideways? Would I just need to drain the fuel from it to stop it leaking? Or are there other precautions to look out for. It's a 2 stroke engine if that makes any difference. Thanks guys👍🏻

Hey welcome to the forum!

You can store a kart on it's side, but it's not the most easy way to store it? Upright on the rear bumper would be easier!

Drain the fuel out and the tank and carb and you should be ok! Also depending on your engine you may have a gear oil breather, might be worth blocking that off for storage.
