how do you raise the rpm,s on a yahama golf cart engine. The lateral adjusting rod only allows for a one to two mile an hour increase. There must be some other adjustment because you can really rev them up by hand.

Golfcart Not A Racecart


Every engine manufacturer builds the basic engine. Then modifies the internal and external parts and controls to fit the needs of the intended machine.

Keeping this in mind, the golfcart engine is equipped governor linkage and controls to limit it's road speed. There may even be internal gears to control the output drive inside this engine.

The model and serial numbers between engines vary to specify the differences between all the engines of it's type. The parts between this engine for golfcart useage varies from that of a racecart with the same basic engine.

Attempting to drastically alter the road speed of the golfcart by interchanging governor parts from the same type engine used in another piece of equipment is often not possible either. The manufacturer most likely has slightly designed the engine block to not allow for the interchanging of parts either.

Any alteration to increase engine road speed would void a warranty, if still in effect or indanger the occupants, which would then be done at your own peril.
