Unhappy G16 not running smoothly/surging at top end

So I recently just got a 97 Yamaha g16 (gas of course) I honestly donít know much about itís previous owner besides a little shady work here and there. My issue is I have went through a couple starters and solenoids which I believe that to be they were off brand and cheap so I ordered new solenoid from buggies and a new starter as well. So when driving cart and it gets up to wot it cuts out and loses power then once it slows down a bit it will go back up almost like itís surging.. it does have a new carburetor, fuel lines, fuel filter along with air filter and plug. I have searched all over and cannot find an answer to fix this.

Is there by chance a rev limiter or something that would cause it to get to top speed then cut out?

rev limiter or Governor as it is called. Look in the stickys for a solution to fix or override it.

if it happens at 12-19 mph then it's probably the governor. It's located on top of the transaxle. The throttle pedal cable runs back to the governor lever, then another cable runs to the carb. The governor lever is connected to a device inside the transaxle that resists movement of that lever based on ground speed. It can be adjusted up or down by tightening or loosening the bolt that runs through the spring. Every cart is a little different, but the basic idea is the same on all gas carts. The factory usually sets the governor to between 12-15 mph.
