Default Engine Back fires

I've got a 2012 Precedent Gas. The place I bought it from adjusted the speed from 13 mph to 20 mph. I am having an issue with Back Firing. When I decelerate to a near stop, and then press the gas pedal down it sometimes backfires. The research I have done so far says that the carb is opening up before the engine starts, therefor adding to much fuel. Does this sound right? and whats the best way to adjust speed, through throttle linkage, or governor?

They adjusted the speed incorrectly. They just went in a pulled the accelerator cable tighter, now the throttle is not closing all the way. Send it back to them

Thank you. I plan on adjusting it myself, I'm not real confident of the place i bought it from. I just need to figure out how to adjust it.

On a club car you adjust it back at the governor. The problem is a 8th of an inch is huge difference. That's why places just pull the cable tight.

Is there a way that you can show detailed information on how to do it right? You read a lot of information but for the novice a lot of it is not clear. Any and all help would be grateful! Thanks!

Probably not too much fuel. More like a lean mixture when you open the throttle.

So, i adjusted the throttle linkage to insure that the carb is closing all the way. I then adjusted the governor in the back (i learned allot from this). It still backfires, but allot less. I like how the cart runs. My new problem is that I'm reaching the engine rev limiter.
