You may have a clogged muffler. Loosen the exhaust so you have an obvious leak and take the cart for a ride. It may not sound good and may backfire, etc. But the key is, do you have more power? I just did it with mine and there was a big difference. So, I knew I needed a new muffler. You will read all over this forum that people who know what they are talking about tell you to run stock exhaust because the motor needs the back pressure. Any "free-flow" exhaust is, as a wise man here puts it "mental horsepower." I ordered my new stock muffler from Mike's Motor Toys, he had the best price anywhere.

I have almost zero knowledge of how an 89 is put together but...how many wires connect to your muffler?

It sounds like a joke, something I would tell my wife was wrong with the cart so I could spend a few bucks on it.

"Oh honey, it will cost a few hundred dollars to replace the flux capacitor. And maybe even more if I need to rewire the muffler and replace the radiator bearings."

The muffler bearings cost more!

What is the oil/gas mix ratio that you use? If it is too lean it will cause the engine to run hot. The oil reduces friction and thus reduces heat.
Also ensure that your cooling fan is free of debris and that the fins on the cylinder are also clear.

i think mb hit the nail on the head! compressed air on the fins and flywheel cover. and run the mix a little rich if it has been run lean, spark plugs are cheap, engines are not
