Default Speeding Up an '05

I have read many posts on here and still need assistance on the best way to speed up an FE290. I want to try the zip tie trick, and disconnect the limiter on the front of the engine. I have looked but guess I am not looking correctly at the engine.. Does anyone have any pictures of where to disconnect the wire from the limiter?

I have also sent my clutches to TOM and had them machined and new spring on the driven clutch. Not sure if they installed a new spring on the drive clutch.

on eier side of the limiter is a ground wire that has a lug on it. remove the nut with a 10mm socket and pull off lug. replace nut with socket and tape end and zip tie so not to rub any bare metal or get got up. thats what i was told to do with my 350, no problems yet!

I would be interested as well Puff. My cart is used 90% on the golf course so a big increase in speed is largely irrelevant. In an ideal world I would like to get around 15-18 reliable mph with a nice little bump in torque due to the hilly nature of the terrain out here.

The cart seems to have some more torque to it when climbing ditches. I do not know if the 200 rpm spring was installed in the drive clutch. I just did the tie wire trick to speed up the cart and it is running around 3900 - 4000 rpm. Will use my gps to get the mph tomorrow.

After getting all things done, the cart will run between 23 - 28 mph. Put Royal Purple 10w-20 and that took care of the oil light coming on. But I am still not happy with it's climbing capabilities........................
