whats the difference between cranking the stock governor down, getting the speed spring and bypassing the carb. Will the following 2 be faster than cranking the stock governor down? and is the speed spring faster or bypassing the governor?

Wrenching the bolt down will just get the maxium amount you can get out of the governor.

A speed spring will get you a little bit more but I have personally tried it and didnt see that much of a difference.

Bypassing is the way to go. Ive done this on my G16 and it has not only gotten the high speed up but its given the cart alot more throttle to work with.

So to answer your question in one sentence, Bypassing is the fastest, the spring is second fastest and just simply wrenching it down it slowest..

I hope this helps!

cool, i'll go with the bypass then. do you lose any of the responsiveness of the throttle with the by pass? can you still cruise around at slow speed if you want?

thanks,

vance

Accually, my responivness went waaay up when I did mine. I think my governor was worn out and when I bypassed all of that it got my lost power back.

And yes you can still put around if you want to, but once you get a bypass I dont think you will want to put alot!

You can cruise at slow speeds no problem. Your foot will now be the governor.

Reviving this thread...

Will this bypass work with my G2?

How do I get around the rev limiter?
I backfire like crazy
Right now...my carb does not close all the way because of a fubered cable.I think it's the one I can toss...one from the arb to the gov.

This will work on a G2. Just hook up the pedal cable directly to the carb. and adjust it so the carb. throttle completely opens and closes.

It is backfiring because the throttle is not closing all the way.
