    My go kart starter motor isn’t workin. Obviously this means the go kart won’t start. I hear the starter motor turning, but it’s not engaging the gear or whatever that turns the engine over. I’m thinking something g stripped or broke on the gear. Any ideas?

    is it visible? do you hear a clunk when it runs from it engaging on the flywheel? that's another posibility with what's wrong.

    try hitting it with the handle end of a hammer, that usually fixes stuff.

    Nothing is visible and there Is no clunk whatsoever. It just sounds like it turns freely.

    so the sprocket's likely not extending out when you run it, most likely because it's stuck
    from my experience, either give it a tap with the aforementioned hammer handle, or if that doesn't work, try opening it up and clean it out.
