Model 13 Recall Information

Important Safety Notice regarding Briggs & Stratton Model 13 Engines used on FunKart Type GoKarts.

End-User Notification



AUGUST 8, 2002

This safety notice applies to the following Briggs & Stratton engines use to power fun-karts:

  • All 5HP Model Series beginning with engine numbers 1352XX

  • Only FunPower Model Series beginning with engine numbers 1362XX, manufactured on or before 6/22/95

Fun-karts using these engines are being voluntarily recalled by Briggs & Stratton because fuel from the engine can spill out if the fun-kart overturns, posing serious fire and burn hazards to consumers. Because of this possibility, we ask that you take the following actions:

  1. EXAMINE the engine on your fun-kart and determine whether any of the above model numbers are indicated. The only FunPower Model 1362XXs being recalled are those manufactured on or before June 22, 1995 and distinguished by a two-inch tall plastic fuel cap. (See pictures and instructions below to locate model and date code identification.) Note that only the models identified above installed on fun-kart applications are the subject of this corrective action.

  2. If you have a recalled engine, immediately STOP using the fun-kart until a repair can be made by a Briggs & Stratton dealer.

  3. CONTACT a Briggs & Stratton dealer to arrange for a free repair. For your convenience, we offer three easy ways to locate your nearest Briggs & Stratton Authorized Dealers:

    Use our website's Service Center Locator.

    Visit and enter "Lawn Mowers" or "Engines-Gasoline" in the Category search field and your Postal Code in the Location search field.

    Call the Briggs & Stratton Automated Hotline at (800) 444-7774. This hotline is available 24 hours a day/7 days a week and features voice recognition technology to assist you in finding the Briggs & Stratton Authorized Dealers in your area. Automated maintenance tips, product information, and FAQs are also offered through voice activated menus.

  4. FORWARD this safety notice to the new owner if you no longer own the fun-kart with a recalled engine. If you would like, contact Briggs & Stratton at (800) 444-7774 or via email through the Contact Us section of our website with the address of the new owner and Briggs & Stratton will contact the new owner.

Briggs & Stratton has voluntarily engaged in this corrective action and is working in cooperation with the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission.
