Pedal go kart FAQ US
- Have I got room for a go-kart?
"All the BERG Buddy's, Rally's and large go-karts can be placed on their side. Because the go-karts are resting on their back wheels and seat, it makes them compact and easy to store.

- My go-kart has a flat tyre but there is no inner tube. How can I repair it?
You can repair a flat tyre by inserting an inner tube. Inner tubes can be ordered from the BERG Sales outlet, or via the spare parts searcher.
- Is there an extra passenger seat available for the BERG Buzzy go-karts?
An extra seat does not fit on a BERG Buddy. This is a small, light go-kart. Mounting an extra seat could cause the front wheels to rise from the ground.
- Is it possible to buy the go-kart stickers separately?
BERG guarantees the supply of replacement parts as stated in the BERGcatalogue to enable the go-kart to function. However, functionality does not include stickers. There are also strict rules concerning the trademark of the models produced under licence (e.g. Ferrari, Jeep, John Deere, Fendt and Claas). BERGis therefore not permitted to supply these stickers separately.
- Is it possible to mount gears on a normal go-kart?
Unfortunately not. A go-kart with gears has a specially designed frame. For that reason, a BERG dealer cannot mount gears on a ‘normal’ go-kart.

- Does a passenger seat fit on the BERG Buddy Go-kart?
It is not possible to mount an extra seat on the BERG Buddy. The Buddy is a small, light go-kart and an extra seat would cause the front wheels to lift off the ground. This is a dangerous situation that we wish to avoid by not mounting an extra seat.
- The reset button of the on-board computer is difficult to access. Can BERG adjust this?
The reset button has been installed so that it is deliberately difficult to reach, to avoid the button from being accidentally pushed by children. It will therefore not be adjusted.

- For which go-karts is the passenger seat suitable?
All passenger seats are only suitable for the XL platform (XL models). All XL models are robust enough to bear the weight of several people and the distance to the ground leaves enough room for legs. With the Rally and Buddy models, this is not the case. These models are not suitable or equipped for a passenger seat. In addition, the steel pin of the passenger seat doesn't fit the seat hole of this model.
- Why is there only one traction wheel on a go-kart?
When taking a turn, the outer wheel makes more rotations than the inner wheel. For example, when turn to the right, the left wheels make more rotations than the right wheels. When both wheels have traction, there can be no difference in rotations and you will not be able to turn smoothly.
