How to Program Speed Modification on an Electric Yamaha Golf Cart

    Lift the seat on your Yamaha electric cart and locate the T-shaped governor in the cart's electric engine. This piece is a metal rod located near the top of the motor, just underneath the seat.

    Locate the carburetor, right next to the governor, on the engine. The carburetor features cylinders facing toward the governor, on the top and on the bottom.

    Push the governor towards the carburetor and use duct tape or a rubber band to position the governor as close to the carburetor as possible. Place the seat back down and notice the increased speed.
