Default My Yamaha G2 Build Thread

Hey y'all just got a 1988 Yamaha G2 for $725 and she's runs perfectly! I plan to make a beauty out of her and drive her around my neighborhood, it's great because I'm only 14! Just some quick questions about the cart! 1. The man that sold it to me said the governor is off, how do I check that it is off? 2. The cart will get going really fast and then slow (when fully pressing down on the accelerator) and get going real fast again. What might be causing this? Thanks for any help!

I removed the top, because the front U was broken. I also ordered a fuel inlet cap or whatever, headlights, and a new starter/generator belt because mine shredded as I was driving.

Nothing like a nice G2 to restore. Cart appears to be in good shape. I like the round tail lights. Keep us up to date on the project.

Well thanks guys! It is really fun for me to do, and its a good way to learn about small motors! Quick question: With the 6" lift i put on, do you think i could clear 23s? or are 22s the max?

Looks Good!!You may fit 23"s,it depends on the tire,they are all a little different sized.If you have access to any,try them,even if they are 22"s then you will get an idea of what will work.The biggest killer is the rear wheel-wells,since they are kinda small.Hope this helps.
