You don't have to press the pedal down all the way!! :)
The govenor is basically a cable that limits how far the carburator opens up.
If it's anything like my 86 there is a bracket holding the cable attached to the reat axel.

Glue a block of wood on the floor under the peddle so it can't go down so far.

i did find a bracket with all my cables before the carb that was bent. when i straighten it the cart loses power. so i dont sound like im competing in drifting competition.ive been feathering gas pedal. i might still try to extend exhaust and find a small second muffler.

so jegger did you find anyway to fix or adjust this away. i pulled the bracket with the cables from the pedal forward and it slowed it down. still loud though. i have a muffler with a 2" out let off a car, i might try it if it fits and isnt too ugly.

well I don't have the gov. any more so cant help you out on the speed control. I would look at when the micro closes to send power to the solenoid, mine was closing with the throttle open causing it to start at a higher rpm and not able to go slow. I also think that that was causing the back fireing as I tookk my foot off to slow down I was still drwaing fuel in without spark then when pushed it back ,bang.

My motor blew last week (20years old) so when I pulled the top end off my exaust gasket was trashed (less than a year old). so for me I am going to replace the motor mounte and exaust gasket as well at the top end of the motor as soon as I get the $$$$. If it is still loud I an going to through on a cheep cheery bomb muffler after the stock one to help out on the noise.
