yes it is the v-glide so just to make sure no controller will be needed even with the 48v batts right.If this is true im all over it.

If you have a VGlide switch(pie shaped black) and 5 coils way low behind the batteries undera tin shield....then you're golden. Do the batteries and solenoid, the old cables will work until you decide what to do about those. Honestly, im still using my 36V solenoid, not putting in the new one until I recable or breakdown

Just make a little drawing of the 6 batteries and the location of pos. and neg. before you take them out, you will not remember once thay are all out...then install the 8 volts in the same position.....its that easy. THEN MASH THE PEDAL AND BE READY FOR A PLEASANT SURPRISE

Stop! You need to Asess the amount of $ you want to put into the cart.....Yes six 8v only cost slightly more than their 6v cousins....but a 48v charger used is $250 to $350. Cables are $100. A safe solenoid is $50 to $75. And you are not going to run your resistor cart on 48v for long without burning it up unless you are a master at wot and coast...The 48v conversion will ultimately need to be completed with the final step...Controller And Potentiometer ($500 min). Allowing you to eliminate the heat producing / amp wasting Resistor coils......By the way the 89 CC you have is a great candidate...I have in process now. It ran 48v WOT for a year before I began the final part of the conversion. So if you still think this is for you learn all you can from the Veteran members here You can tell who they are by their post counts. Be careful taking well meaning advice from members with only 20 or 30 posts..

One thing people dont realize before they do the conversion....They think, "Well I run WOT all the time anyways"....that was on a 36 volt cart that was performing poorly. When you make the upgrade to 48 volts you will find yourself needing to throttle down in certain conditions. One, because off the extra volts and two because you usually repair something that needed to be repaired during the upgrade.

Do what? 6 solenoids? Thats a new one to me. Also, I as well as everyone else would like to know where you can get a golf cart solenoid for $5? You cannot use an automotive solenoid. (You can but you'll be buying more real soon because they will not hold up.)

Sorry but we got enough guys jumping onto the 48v bandwagon right now....and little is being said in the way of neccessary caution....I will link some pics of the downside here in a minute.... The old timers cautioned me when I did the first one and I didn't see one burn up (or melt down) until I put one of them in someone else's hands....

89 is not a 5 solenoid cart ... one or 2 members are trying to run 48v in a 5 solenoid cart and they commplain that the solenoids do not last 2 or 3 months ......

For the game of golf in a public place.....you may want to go to the total upgrade immedeatly...I mean put the controller in and be done with it....Have it run faster than anyone else on course and yet creep around the clubhouse and greens without fear of melting
