Default 2013 Yamaha Gas Golf Cart Speed

Anyone know what max speed is normally set for a 2013 Yamaha Gas golf cart? Thanks! Lark

Out-of-the box with no modifications, I believe max speed is around 13 mph give-or-take. Depending on what the dealer does to the cart (high speed gearing, etc.), speed can be higher than that.

The cart we bought from The Villages Cart Store was set at the legal limit of 19.5 MPH.

Our 2013 Yamaha gas cart was also purchased form The Villages Cart store. Our max speed is under 20 mph. We are always being passed by other golf cart drivers. Sometimes we just pull over and let them pass.

They are running the risk of being ticketed for an unregistered motor vehicle. Let's hope the idiots get ticketed before they hurt or kill someone or themselves. Golf carts are dangerous enough at 20 mph. See the articles in the POA Bulletin.

One of the salesmen at a local golf cart store told me the governor is adjusted the same as the old ones. I don't know if this is accurate or not.

What's amazing is that some golf cart drivers, following you, seem to get irritated if you're going 19.5 MPH and they have to wait to pass you while other cart traffic is coming from the other direction.

Did read those articles about golf cart accidents. One article was a grandmother making a turn and her grand kid flew out of the cart and thank goodness the little one landed head first, in a large bush. Good for him it wasn't the pavement.

Some owners just replace the original wheel and tires with larger ones and do not have the governor reset. They may get a couple mph out of this and it is enough to get them around ones that have not been changed.

I pay attention to almost any cart that passes me and a number of times I see that it is the same make as the one I am in but looking at the tires almost 90% of the time they have been replaced. Then there are those that have really been juiced and fly by and that is a whole different story.
