Need help removing Yamaha golf cart governor...

I recently picked up a Yamaha Golf Cart to use as a pit vehicle but this thing is dog slow! Does anyone know how to remove the governor?

If it is electric so you need to go online and find a crossover wiring kit, to increase the amps to the motor.

If it is gas, depending on the motor configuration, you need to follow the throttle cable to the carb and determine what linkage is limiting the throttle. All companies and motors are different but they are usually easy to figure out. On a clubcar you just turn a main throttle screw but the faster make it the worse the bottom end repsonse is.

If all else fails call or stop buy a local shop and pick the mechanic'a brain a little bit.

I will have pics up this weekend. I picked it up for $1500 to use as a pit vehicle at the track. Today we are taking off the body so I can paint it to match the trailer. It is a gas yamaha cart. I did some more research and I'll post what I come up with just in case anyone here goes golfing in the near future and wants to have a little bit of extra speed.

On the rear transaxle, there is a linkage with a spring-loaded arm, accessible only from the drivers side just visible almost under, but behind the muffler. To simply turn up the governor without disabling it, all that must be done is to tighten the nut (10mm wrench or socket) until it pulls the two spring-loaded arms together as closely as it can.
