Discussion in 'EZ-GO' started by JAMIE L KRATZ, Jun 29, 2020 at 9:01 AM.

  1. Goes faster in reverse than it does in forward. How can i fix this?
     
  2. it may be in the governor ... how fast is forward speed ?
     
  3. Maybe a few mph
     
  4. SHOULD BE THE SAME
    CHECK THE BRAKES TO SEE IF THEY ARE HANGING UP
     
  5. Ok
     
  6. Just took both sides off and they spin freely and the rotor came off easily. Still slower in forward
     
  7. YOU GOT ME ON THIS ONE

    but if it's running it is good
     
  8. Ya its running but it like crawls in forward then scary fast in reverse. Idfk. Just put a new throttle cable on as well
     
  9. does the motor sound the same ? forward and reverse ?
    throttle cable would not be better in reverse ...
    it has to be something restricting the forward movement ...
    only other thing i can think of is gears
    try puting rear on jack stands and pressing gas in forward ( not to much) ... watch wheels
    then do it in reverse ... see or hear any difference??
    when was the last time you greased the front hubs ??
     
  10. No difference. My buddy said to tighten the throttle cable more. So i did and it worked. Weird that would make the difference
     
  11. unbelievable

    glad its fixed .... will file that one away in my notes
     
  12. Ya i know. Thanks for the help
