How many rpm can you turn on a stock KT100.

you should be able to get about 14900 - 15800 rpm from a KT 100, any more rpm and the motor stops pulling and your at risk of siezing your engine.

I've free winded them to 18,000, but it AIN'T a good idea.

The maximum RPM for any given track is a little different depending on the layout of the track. We race on two, and one requires 14,400 from a Super Can Kart, while the same kart runs best at 13,700 at the other.

Treat it like a golf course, if it goes uphill, don't over wind it. If it has a real sharp corner, and long straights, you'll probaly have to rev a little higher.

By the way, the KT1-100 stops producing toirque around 13,700 Can and 14,400 on a Pipe. At least by my dyno.
