What is Kart Republic?

Formed in 2017 by Dino Chiesa, Kart Republic has quickly evolved to the top performing kart brand in the world. It has dominated podiums on the international level since its inception. It soon moved onto American soil, capturing its debut victory at the most competitive North American event, the Las Vegas SKUSA Supernationals (1st - X30 Senior - Lorenzo Travisanutto - Nov. 2018). The brand has since scored a multitude of victories to solidify its position at the top of the competitive kart racing.

Kart Republic was born from a long process of technological implementation. One of the first priorities is to be able to ensure the highest innovation and modernity, for drivers safety and performances. The process leading to the creation of a Kart Republic chassis is divided into several stages; the study of proper scientific applications, the best most innovative software for technical and mechanical design, the quality control, the test on track and racing, all to ensure winning performance. This promise is maintained thanks to the skill of the engineers and thanks to the advanced equipment at their disposal.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is the KR worth it if I'm a beginner?

Absolutely. The Kart Republic has the largest "sweet spot" for tuning of any kart we have come across. This means less work off the track and more focus into your driving. All driver experience levels will be able to take advantage of its speed!

Do I need aftermarket parts or add ons to be competitive?

Simply put, you do not. Unlike its main competitor, the KR comes with all out of the box parts that the Italian factory KR team and Kartsport North America race team use. No need to purchase over $700 in wheels in addition to your kart purchase like competing brands will make you do. You spend enough on a new kart chassis - why spend more?

How do I get spare parts and are they readily available?

If you do not have a Kart Republic dealer in your local area, we suggest ordering from our online store, www.kartsportna.com. We ship same day on orders before 1 PM EST and we have a large stock of spares on hand at all times.

How will I receive support for tuning and mechanical advice?

Our hours are 9AM to 6PM M-F. You can call us at 855-527-8776 or email us at info@kartsportnorthamerica.com. All members of our staff are trained and highly experienced in the KR line and can assist you in diagnosing handling issues and finding solutions.

How do I determine my seat size?

Check out the Jecko sizing chart below. It is best to compare measurements if you have an existing seat from another brand. Otherwise - you can contact us and we would be happy to help find the correct fit.

How do I order my KR?

Call us at 855-527-8776 or email us at info@kartsportnorthamerica.com to order your KR.

How much to ship a KR kart to my house?

Freight charges on karts average around $200 - but -we typically only ship to a freight dock nearest to your home address. We can usually find a dock within 15 mins. From there, you show the bill of lading and your photo ID at the freight dock and that's all there is to it.

Does Kartsport have used KR karts for sale?

We usually have race team karts with low hours available. Check out the used section at on our website (www.kartsportna.com)

 

Can I put a Briggs & Stratton LO206 on KR?

Yes, you can install the LO206 on both the MINI and KR2 models. The MINI needs to use a special low profile sprocket hub and smaller rear sprocket count (45 to 51 tooth) to make clearance with the chain and rear cross bar.  

The KR2 just needs a side sliding mount to create enough clearance between the engine and seat post.

Is the Will Power kart a different chassis configuration?

No, the WPK chassis line is identical to the Kart Republic line. All differences are purely cosmetic.
