How to Make a Yamaha G19 Golf Cart Faster

By Matthew Fortuna

Golf carts, once used exclusively as transportation on golf courses around the world, have branched out to become a popular way of getting around. One model, the Yamaha G19, is now used to get around large estates, driven recreationally and being used for a multitude of other reasons. While these Yamaha golf carts have a standard top speed of around 15 mph, it is possible to increase the speed on your G19 to get much more horsepower out of it.

Instructions

Difficulty: Moderate
Step 1
Flip open the seat on your Yamaha G19 golf cart and locate the governor. The governor will be attached to both the carburetor and the gas pedal, and can be found by the thin cable that attaches the three to each other.
Step 2
Disconnect the cable at the connection between the carburetor and the governor and the connection between the governor and the gas pedal.
Step 3
Use the cable to attach the gas pedal straight to the carburetor, eliminating the connection to the governor. Close the seat when you are done.
Step 4
Loosen the bolt on the shaft for the gas pedal that keeps the pedal from extending all the way up or down. Raise the gas pedal up to its maximum height once you have loosened the bolt and tighten it again.
Step 5
Remove any additional weight when not on the golf course for extra speed. You can remove the roof or any unnecessary features attached to the back of the cart.
Step 6
If you own it, add larger wheels to make your Yamaha go even faster. Larger wheels cover more ground per revolution and increase the speed of your cart.
