Use search. You will need a different charger for starters.

Upgrade the controller, solenoid, cable set, and charger for 42v operation... here is one such thread.

I agree. If you are going to upgrade go to 48V. Same things required - better result.

Just to clarify ...... for a series drive cart go from 36 to 48v for more torque and speed. On a DCS or PDS (both sepex) drive system go to 42v. Why? because 48v just seems too much essentially asking the motor for it's guts every time you accelerate and 42v is a nice compromise for this drive system. IMHO

That's the way I feel. I do see Scottys point in that the stock motor may not last as long. But as long as you plan to get a new motor later, I would skip right to 48.

My point was 48v good for Series vs 42v better for Sepex drive motors!
Thanks for letting me set the record right.
