Green plate ?

I'm brand new to karting but recently bought two karts. I'm looking to buy a third for my 6 yo son. The one I'm currently looking at has a green plate motor with it. From what I understand, they run red plates at the local track here for 6yo. Can I use the green plate motor and switch it too a red plate motor. Sorry for the stupid question.

Thanks

Yep, we ran red plate last year and moved to green this year. Same carb, just jetted differently. Not much difference in the plate holes so a minor adjustment to carb and you should be fine.
