Default 2011 ezgo governor

I've searched everywhere, watched youtube till I'm crosseyed, but can't find any setup like mine.

I'm wanting just a little more speed, can't figure out how or where to make adjustments.

Pics attached if anyone can help. 2011 EZGO ST Sport 2+2 Kawasak1 13hp.

Thanx

I don't see the governor in either picture. On a Kawasaki motor the governor adjustment should be behind the motor on top of the gearbox. It will have a cable going to a two piece slide adjustment that are joined together by a bolt in a slot. Loosen the bolt and adjust so the slot either closes or opens more...one way will give you more speed I can't remember which and I am not around my cart right now.

The 1st picture is top of the gear box. This critter looks different than any of seen. But I haven't seen that much yet.

First pic. Cable with the gold spring is the throttle and your governor setting looks to be fully adjusted out.. Has the little rubber boot on it

And I wouldn't do this because the cart probably won't idle any more after doing this..

The new style Kawasaki drive train is a trick to get the governor right. Mine had issues as well and it turned out the bracket that clamps to the pin coming out of the trans axle was out of adjustment. Yes it is keyed but after I loosened it I was able to turn it like 10 degrees.

Found a write up I did on how I adjusted mine..

Take the throttle cable out of the bracket, loosen the 10mm nut on the gov bracket and get it where when the pedal is pushed it will start and idle. Then loosen the nut/bolt holding the governor to the shaft and make sure it is spun all the way against its backstop. Mine wasn't. Then hold the throttle against idle, the gov against its stop and tighten the 10mm nut. Now hook your cable back up and tweak. Mine with 21 inch tires runs 26 at 4k rpm

Circled in the pic below. You will need a 10mm (or two).
Notice that mine is adjusted almost to the end of the cable. I can get 28mph outta the cart now but usually find myself somewhere around 22mph.

Kerr, his is adjusted all the way out already or appears to be.. That is why I suggested testing the bracket that mounts to the governor pin. Mine needed to be tweaked..

I ran into the same problem when I tried to get more speed out of my 2008 RXV. I turned the nuts all the way out to the end of the cable adjuster on the cable that's attached to the gold spring but still needed take more slack out of the cable. I loosened the cable bracket mounting bolts and inserted a 16 gauge piece of metal on top of the upper bolt between the bracket and transaxle housing and tightened them up again. This caused the cable bracket to tilt away from the housing and thus took more slack out of the cable, resulting in more speed.
