If I already have saved data of a Wii game (For example: Mario Kart Wii) on my Wii U, will it erase the Wii U's saved data to replace it with the Wii saved data?
If so, could I just move the data to an SD card so it won't transfer?
Here's a blurb from Nintendo's Support Page
. It's actually from the page about transferring multiple Wiis to one Wii U but it's the only place in the support pages that I could find that, I think, answers your question.

Basically, it's going to overwrite your Mario Kart data. If I were in your situation here's what I would do: I'd move the Mario Kart data on the Wii U onto an SD card for backup. Then on your original Wii, I'd just delete the Mario Kart data (since it sounds like you want the version on your Wii U and not this original save). Then I'd perform the transfer from the Wii to the Wii U. But I'd also use a different SD card than the one used for the Mario Kart save backup. In this scenario, I don't think the Mario Kart data on the Wii U would be lost (or overwritten) because your data is just being combined and the Wii U doesn't know that you had a Mario Kart save on the Wii, but I'd make the backup just to be safe.
