Default G2 Throttle No Idle or Slowish Speed Control

1987 gas G2. Drained gas and changed fuel filters. New fuel pump. New Amazon carb. New battery.

Basically any movement of the gas pedal makes it go. There really isnít any slow speed.


Iím sure there is a thread about this already and I searched but probably didnít use the right words.

Thanks for the help

First, itís not supposed to idle. Itís a golf cart and golf carts start and run when you press the pedal, and shut off when you stop.

Second if the throttle response is real jerky trying to run slow speeds, then itís usually either a sticky throttle cable or possibly a clutch problem.

IF you change it over to key start the cart can idle. The stop/start switch will not let that happen. Even with their stock engines I switched over both my yamaha G14 and my HD model D 4 wheeler.

Gotcha

I guess what I think should happen is. You push the pedal a little and the engine goes brrr. Then some more and the engine goes brr and the wheels move. Then you push it more and it goes faster.

I just have fast when you barely hit the pedal and faster when u press a little more.

To me the pedal start makes a lot of sense on the golf course BUT makes no sense if you are using your cart for any kind of touring or off road use. What other vehicle uses that set up ?

A lot of vehicles now use that system - auto stop/start in cars at traffic lights or any other condition where it comes to a stop. It's a PIA and one of the first things I try and defeat if it comes on a car I've purchased but the manufacturers seem convinced it saves gas and cuts down on pollution - I think it probably just wears out a starter in a matter of a couple of years. But it does remind me very much of a golf cart.

Again, check your throttle cable and clutch condition

I know itís an old thread but I thought Iíd jump in here since I canít seem to get any info on my similar situation.
My accelerator cable is adjusted to the max. All 3 cables are adjusted to the max in fact, but I still canít get the slow speed running properly. The throttle on the carb is not closing all the way. Looks to me like the governor will not return to the ď0Ē position.
I had to splice the accelerator cable when it broke so I lost about an inch of cable length. The cable I bought from Amazon is the wrong one (itís for a G16 so about 4Ē too long. The listed said itís for a G2 but you knowÖ. Amazon)). Hence why I spliced the original cable.
Do I just need to buy the proper cable or could the governor be malfunctioning?
