Default Accelerator Pedal Stiffness

I own a 09 CC Precedent 48V. Has anyone noticed CC Precendet's accelerator pedal being stiff or harder to push that EZ-GO or Yamaha? I have driven several 36V EZGO and Yamaha golf carts over the years and have noticed that my pedal is much harder to push. It is a CC thing, a regen motor thing, or is there something I need to adjust? I have lubricated the pedal assembly which helped some but it is still noticeably harder to push that others. I have never operated a 48V regen motor setup or a CC cart until I purchased mine so I do not have anything to compare to.

I have seen the posts about the speed sensor issue. Mine runs at full speed (14mph) for the older Trojan Batteries (1275) that I have. Don't think mine is the sensor. Hoping Tahoe will reply with some professional wisdom.

Now thinking this is MCOR related. Tried the suggested pumping of the accelerator pedal 20 times, quoted below, with the cart turned off. It definitely worked/helped. Maybe my description of the problem was poorly explained but I'm on the right track now. Anyone reading this just search MCOR Question and you will see an accurate explanation.

"If the variable resistor/potentiometer in the MCOR has dirty spots on it, it will work well in some spots and not in others. Mine has been doing it for a couple of years. What helps mine is before you turn the cart on, work the go pedal up and down about 20 times real fast. I do this about once a month and use the cart every day. It helps clear it up for a while, then when it starts acting up again, do the same thing again. Hope this helps."

From your first post it sounds like the amount of pressure required to push the pedal down. I know I wish mine was lighter.

My does require more than other makes from my experience and I also wish my was lighter as well. My original post was about the stiffness which I thought was related to jerking at low speed. I guess I'm showing my lack of expertise with electric carts. My cart was a used fixer-upper and I'm learning as I go.

So I think you have two questions and not necessary related. The jerking is the electrical issue but the stiff pedal is mechanical. Not sure how to loosen up the feel of the pedal but I do want to loosen mine up some also.

Sounds that way unfortunately. The lubrication of the pedal assembly did help the stiffness somewhat. I just hope I don't have the replace the MCOR or the assembly. Both are expensive if replaced and I would rather spend the money on mods and aesthetics. My wife already thinks I'm nuts for putting money into an around the neighbor cart.

Replacing the MCOR resolved everything. Stopped the jerking at low and high speeds and also the pedal stiffness. Not really sure how it resolved the stiffness.
