The Mini Swift is the IAME's entry into the Italian Karting Federation's (IKF)(FIK) new JR class as well as SKUSA, and the WKA. This package is similar to the Gazelle and is simple to start, operate and maintain for new or experienced racer. Delivered as a spec engine package complete with centrifugal clutch, carburetor, air box, exhaust system, electric starter, electrical harness and all necessary mounting hardware. The mini swift uses a float bowl style carburetor instead of a pumper style that is used on the Gazelle.
What sets the Parilla Mini-Swift apart from its competitors in this new engine class is the legendary IAME durability and consumer-friendly components. Electric start is very popular with the spec engine class especially with young racers and parents.
The IAME Parilla Mini Swift package is the required engine for the SKUSA Cadet class (8 to 12 years old)

Rough running or misfire at high engine RPM
The connector plug on the coil maybe loose, check how tight the fit is, squeeze the connector with pliers to make the plug tight.
Engine splutters and wont accelerate to reach higher RPM on first lap.
The engine needs to be warmed up on the stand before first use of the day, start the engine and rev up and down until the cylinder head is hot to touch. Do not let the engine sit at idle RPM for prolonged periods, this causes the engine to oil up (become to rich) These engines like to rev, start the engine and immediately leave the pits and drive at full speed as soon as it's safe to do so.
If you do foul a spark plug, the recommended spark plug for the mini swift engine is the NGK BR10EG, you can also use the NGK BR9EG and NGK BR11EG spark plugs to compensate for hotter or colder weather, the NGK BR9EG is normally used for wet weather and the NGK BR11EG for very hot weather.
We have found no performance advantage using the other plugs and would recommend always using the NGK BR10EG
The mini swift engine needs servicing after 25hrs of use, to keep the engine fresh and at maximum performance we recommend servicing every 15hrs of use. Servicing usually involves having a new piston fitted and internal component tolerances checked.
