You've got a hot date with the 19th hole, only your golf cart isn't allowing you to go over 10 mph. If you're having problems with your Yamaha golf cart and you've got 15 minutes and wrench, you can get it up to speed by simply disconnecting the governor.
Difficulty: Moderately Easy
Start by locating the carburetor. A straw-width cable runs from the carburetor to the governor. Detach the cable from the carburetor and follow it up to the governor.
Detach the cable from the governor. The governor should be on top of the engine, but it's just as easy to find it by following the cable.
Detach the gas pedal cable from the governor. This cable is the same size as the carburetor-to-governor cable you just disconnected.
Run the gas pedal cable to the carburetor and reattach it where you pulled the initial governor cable off. You now have direct power going from the gas pedal to the carburetor.
Adjust the gas pedal. There is a bolt on the shaft of the gas pedal that you must remove to adjust the pedal length up. Once you've made the adjustment, refasten the bolt, start the cart and depress the pedal. You may need to make adjustments, depending on your need.
