The cheapest and best way to get more power is too completely bypass the governor by hooking pedal throttle cable directly to the carb. and installing the spring/spacer torque kit. You can also install an oversize jet and k&n type air filter and modify the muffler for better air flow.

chances are that old engine has alot of hours on it, maybe wouldnt hurt to freshen it up. a complet rebuild of those engines is dirt cheap. when i did mine i shaved the head .020 and bored it out .035.. a fesh valve lapping to make sure they sealed good really made a huge difference. i was running 26in blackwaters with the stock clutches. worked pretty good!!
