Welcome to Buggies Gone Wild!!

If it's overheating, check to make sure your muffler isn't clogging up and also make sure there is not a lot of dirt packed in under the plastic engine cover.

There are plenty of performance mods for these carts: high performance clutches, belts, rear spring/spacer kit, etc... Check out Plowman's high performance kits and some of our other sponsors here.

All my G2's and G9's I've owned I only installed the spring/spacer kit on the rear clutch and kept a good drive belt on. I also completely removed the little governor cable and run the pedal cable directly to the carb and adjusted. G2's unfortunately have a rev limiter so you still have kick back.

Did your torque spring come with a spacer?? If not, you need one to replace the c-clip on the shaft.

One big thing to watch on these models is the engine mounts and the little tension cable under the air filter box which keeps the engine from moving back and causing slack in the drive belt under load. Another good idea is to remove the fuel filter in the tank and run an inline. The one in the tank clogs and deteriorates easily. And make sure your air box is sealed tight (no air leaks).

Also make sure you never overgrease the drive clutch or rear clutch bushing. It will throw grease all over the belt.

I'm moving this thread to Gas Yamaha.

I'll emphasize on spriddles comment about the dirt under the cover these older carts get dirt and debris packed in and around fins on motor under the plastic witch cause poor cooling it's a pain but pull all the plastic shrouds off and clean motor also may not hurt to check valve lash if your a race car guy going should be able to handle that set to .004"

We use carts for the same purpose. Some upgrades from Don Plowman are the way to go, in my opinion. You can read about my experience by clicking this link:

I apologize for posting in the wrong section,not sure how I did that.Correction,I used a red spring with the spacer.Its a new muffler,sealed up air box,tightened up on torque cable,cleaned cooling fins,(not bad) Just recently bypassed the governor,I haven't had a chance to push the car since then but I did pick up 5 mph.Once in a while it will back fire through the exhaust after driving steadily talking you foot off gas and getting back on it.I still have to remove the tank pick up and go over the valves,they do sound a little noisy.

No problem posting in my section. I just moved it so you could get help from numerous members if needed. It's all good. And welcome to Buggies Gone Wild.

Backfiring is more than likely due to the throttle not closing all the way after you let off the gas pedal. Clean and adjust the throttle cable. And probably does need a valve adjustment.
