Default Controller settings with a stock motor

Hello BGW I am a new proud poppa of a 97 TXT I traded my Arctic Cat ATV for her. The previous owner had good intentions but no time so I have brand new wiring and a 700amp FSIP controller but a stock motor. I have been told by my local cart shops that I will burn up the motor and controller if I dont upgrade my motor. I just wonder if they are typical sales people and are trying to sell me something because I dont have all the facts yet?? Also I have read on the product specs for my controller that it is adjustable does this mean I may be able to adjust it so I do not burn them up until I have the extra 6-700$ for a upgraded motor?

Thanks in advance for your input!

btw 36v setup

The GE controller you have in there is not adjustable in that manner. Yes, it will eventually burn up the motor, but it will likely last quite a while. I seriously doubt any harm would come to the controller unless the motor dead shorted when it failed (unlikely but possible). You will eventually have to change that motor though.... When you have to change the batteries on it, I would also suggest going to 48v as you will have signifigant improvement over the current 36v......

Nice looking cart, you should have loads of fun with it.

I know there are a bunch of motor choices... any suggestions for a good upgrade I don't need to do any wheelies just cruisin dirt roads also the batteries are less than a year old so that should last a while I hope. Would you do 2 more 6v or bite the bullet and do 6 8's ?

Thanks

any hills to climb? I know you are in Florida, so am I, but there are some hills that can be climbed even her ein Florida. Middle of nowhere tends to make me think you are likely close to the Ocala National Forest (as am I) and there are some healthy trails, ravines and gullies throughout those woods....

Personally I would go Torque for the sheer power that brings you (and yes, speed comes with it). One of the sponsors here is a company called Plum Quick and contacting them would be in your best intrestsas they can redesign your existing motor to handle what you need for alot less than buying a new motor (figure in the $300 range with shipping). Yes, I would add 2 6v batteries. As yours are still fairly new, adding them now wouldn't be an issue. Remember that you would also need a 48 Volt charger and a HD 48 volt solenoid. I didn't see you mention if the F&R is HD or not, but if it isn't that would also need upgrading.
