Hi Gerhard,

The most common engine I use on my go-karts is the Yamaha RXS100.
See: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Yamaha_RX_100
(older model of: http://www.syb-magazine.com/1995yamaharxs100.htm )

There is no battery or electric starter. There is a kick start lever. See:

Yes, the gearbox, 4 speed and manual wet clutch is all inbuilt into the
motorcycle engine.
There are a lot of photos of the engine at:

Note: I didn't make this engine. I took it from a rxs100 motobike,
stripped it, redone the electrics to just have the CDI ignition unit and
fitted it to the kart.

If you have any other questions, just let us know.
Best of luck,
