Setting up Governor on 900
Posted July 25, 2010 - 02:25 PM
With motor at rest (not running) How tight should the spring be between the adjusting screw/rod and the governor lever? Taught with no play or slightly loose?

I have mine set slightly loose with just a little bit of play.
Same with my TR10D.

Next I moved the throttle cable lever attached to the steering column all the way down to the slow side.
Then with the throttle lever on the carb set in the idle position, the lever touching the idle screw, I attached one side of spring to the 2nd hole of the governor lever and the other end to the adjusting rod setting it so there was just a slight bit play to the spring.
Is this correct so far? Or am I doing something wrong?
By the way I have the 5" threaded rod and the 47 loop count spring.

It would be a lot easier to set up this engine if my starter/generator worked. I'm doing the pull start thing and it gets tiring after the 20-30th pull.
You dont have to tell me LOL. I have to pull start all but 2 of mine

Great. Now you said the throttle lever is turned down all the way. I take it the motor is not running.
The motor was not running...
