Hi, I just bought a 1982 Yamaha G1 golf cart I dont know much about. My brother in law says the RPM is to high before it kicks into gear and start to move. What is the proper rpms to kick into gear and are the rpms different for forward and reverse.


The golf cart should start moving as soon as you press the throttle. Yamaha G1's rev a little higher but it should be pretty smooth taking off from a dead stop. It may need the clutch's cleaned. It could also have a problem with the drive or driven clutch. How's the drive belt look?
