Please be more specific. I have run a 36v series motor on 48v with a very simple setup, but if you don't understand basic circuitry I would not recommend my technique.

Some time back I happened upon the idea that if we were all enjoying putting 48v to a 36v cart....... then why not put a 36v motor in a 48v cart and get the same results ~ for less!?
As for Guinea Pigs, more than a few showed up to try this theory out.... one lives near me and has kept in touch. The carts all had the same 25-30% improvement in speed and torque as the aforementioned 36v carts on 48...

I have not done this upgrade I suggested it to a few members ho did it with good results... If you are going to upgrade you should always increase the cable size to handle the amperage demands. If replacing the cables is a deal breaker then maybe you shouldn't do it.... SO yes you can put 36v motor in a 48v cart and get about 25-30% more torque and speed, but be prepared to meet the demands with new cables

This has become the norm, I swap out the cables, solenoid and F/R switch to cover the amp’s. The difference is noticed and works very well, but I also have the 36V motor completely rebuilt to ensure all items are in good shape. Finding a used 36V motor is getting harder and harder, last one I had to buy a complete cart ($250.00) just to get the motor, then sold pieces on Craigslist and got my $250.00 back.
