Default 87 ez-go faster? how?

i just got an 87 ez go, gas, i would like to make it faster, most of the stuff i'm finding is for 90 and up, it makes some chattering noise in the clutch that bolts to rearend ( the bolt fell out the other day and clutch fell off, put back on though) i was thinking of getting a new one, but didnt want to spend money on oem part if there is a better one, and the belt looks worn, i seen the thread about shorter belt, would this help also, if so what part # and where do i get it. thanks for help.........ps. governer disabled

Decent clutches are VERY important. After you have that working right ditch the govenor and be conscious of how fast its running.

I wouldn't recommend taking the clutch apart first. They are very simple and you may be able to fit it. Is the plastic cover still on the front?

there had been a rattlin noise coming from the cart, after doin my homework and playing with cart i found out it was the clutch that bolts to rearend, was bad, it fell off, and broke dust cover, bolt came off, i put back on and put bolt back in, it still runs but theres a lot of "play" in it. so i just ordered a new clutch and belt from Tom, said it will be here in a few days.thought about getting bigger motor, but cant keep reverse so i'm sticking with what i got, new clutch should make an improvement ( i hope) will post pics of old clutchto show what to look for in bad clutch

heres pics of worn out clutch, the one that bolts to rearend

this is a grove that got worn in to shaft, the disk wobbles on the shaft because of this

the rivets are worn in this pic, the disk chatters because of this

worn belt missing chunks, this CANT be good.

You should see a HUGE gain in performance with the new stuff. I don't think I've ever seen such worn clutch sheaves.
