How can I increase the speed of my 2017 Yamaha gas golf

Customer Question
How can I increase...

How can I increase the speed of my 2017 Yamaha gas golf cart? I understand the recommended speed for my neighborhood and I understand and accept the risk of increasing my speed.

Mechanic's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. How long have you been dealing with this?

I bought the golf cart new in July.

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you plan on doing the work yourself?

I am very handy. So I would think I could.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else we should know to help you best?

No. Do you know is there maybe a video?

I don't have 2017 to look at, but with all the Yamahas, the governor spring has to have the tension increased to get higher rpm from the engine. With the cart still under warranty, you may want to hold off, until out of warranty, or dealer might not honor the warranty if you have any issues with engine or transmission.
