The new style CIK Unico side pod saves you
time and money by allowing you to use your 2002 and older nerf
bars with a new style side pod. The Unico, along with
bracket kit (K1858) gives your older kart a new
look without major modifications to your chassis.
These instructions are for mounting the new 2003
CIK Unico side pods on 2002 and older style nerf bars.
Not all nerf bars will be the same, but this example shows
you how to fit the new style bodywork to most karts.
Take off older pre-2002 pod.Place the aluminum plate (provided) on the old rear L
Make sure the plate is sitting square
on the old L bracket. With a marker, transfer the
two existing holes to the aluminum plate. (See Figure #1
Drill two Ό holes in the plate.
plate to the L bracket with bolts, washer, &
(Figure #3) Slide the new L bracket (provided) between
the plate and the nerf bar.
Place the side pod on the
brackets to check pod position and levelness (most of the
time the L bracket is level with the plate). Figure
#4 is a view from the bottom . Make sure you have turning
clearance between the side pod and front & rear tires.
Remove the pod and mark where you need to drill
two Ό holes in the plate and the new L bracket.
Clamp the "L" bracket to the plate before
drilling. After drilling the holes attach the
L" bracket with the bolt, washer & nut in the
bottom hole only. (Figure #6)
Set the pod back on the L brackets and mark
the location needed for holes in the front (Figure #7) and
rear of pod (Figure #8). Make sure the new pod is lined up
level with the pod on the opposite side of the kart.
Verify tire clearance
Take the pod off and drill the holes in the pod (Figure
Remount the pod on the brackets using the
remainder of the bolts in kit.
Its up to you if you want to cut off the old, rear
L bracket. The front "L" bracket is
normally OK, but you may need to cut ½ to 1 off the
old bracket if it extends out beyond the pod.
