    Hello I started this project last year and ran into a snag with how I can run the chain in this go cart with idler pulleys but I was also thinking about trying a jack shaft system. But their is a lot of hp. To consider. Is there anyone here that may have a better idea on how to get this thing moving?
    The motor is a 2001 gsxr 600
    The photos of the system are only mock ups so that I could get a better idea of what I needed to do

    Cool cart (nice sponser lol).

    I think you'd be better off with a shared jack shaft running 2 chain. Pretty easy to do, just a shaft between 2 pillow blocks or flange bearings. Route it like this down to that plate on the bottom.

      You should make that car look like this:

          Especially if you incorporated a jackshaft

            I like Dans idea- you get a better wrap of the chain around the sprockets- especially the drive sprocket.
            I seldom do anything within the scope of logical reason and calculated cost/benefit, etc- I'm following my passion-

                The problem with that it’ll go in reverse

                      I have to build it heavy duty because the motor as it sits is 111 hp. At 12,500 rpm

                          uhhg uhm - all jesting aside (on this family site)

                          damn I would hate like hell to run the power side of a chain "non direct" anotherwords your loading a sprocket that's not even a drive sprocket in order to just be able to get to the drive sprocket - not good practice esp. with high performance...

                          I realize it's most likely all you can do due to engine/drive config... just want to say --- Bummer...

                              That’s what I was told by a friend of mine was telling me also. The only thing I’ve come up with is two options one is to make an idler arm doubled up sort of like this with heavy springs to try and stop any chain slap and of course there is another heavy steel plate to support the first idler sprocket shaft
                              And the other would be hard to explain
