My son rides a Suzuki LTZ-50 (he's 5) and we would like to remove the governor so it can go faster. Is anybody aware of how to do this or if the manual will tell you how? The place where we purchased it from wants us to bing it in and they can do it. However, we would like to do it if we can and then put it back in once our younger son is old enough to ride! Any help is appreciated. THANKS!!!

Huh? Is this different from the LT-A50 (two-stroke version)? I have one of those and both the owner and service manuals for it and don't recall anything about a restriction on a pulley. The restrictions on the 2-stroke are in the intake port, the exhaust port, the throttle control, and the secondary carb jet.
The book we have says you need some sort of special tool. took ours to the dealer and for 39 bucks it goes about twice as fast. I think it's a spacer inside the trans. Just tell them you want to put it back later and save the spacer.
Both of my boys have the suzuki 50's. My oldest has the LT50A (2stroke) and my youngest has the new LTZ50(4 stroke). There is no need to pay a dealer an absurd amount of money for a 5 minute job you can do at home. I asked my dealer and they wanted to charge $125 due to labor which included disassemble and reassemble. For the LTZ50 all you need to do is remove the side plastic and case cover as shown in your manual. Next pick up a nice bottle of champain for your wife. After she starts drinking, take the cork and use it as a wedge between the gear and the engine. This will allow you to remove the nut without destroying the aluminum case. Once the nut is off, remove the 1/4 space and reassemble the bike. Until CT racing comes out with the new CDI box and exhaust, there's really not too much more to do to that bike. Now the LTA50 is another story. After removing the two restrictor washers, you can open the carb and adjust your needle position as well as remove the secondary jet plug. It's a small set screw covering the secondary jetting. This will give the bike a little more top end. Hope this helps:^)
CT Racing was supposed to have the CDI available by December of 06. From what I've been told is that they ran into some unforseen issues with the upgraded CDI and may not be going forward with production. I've started to look elsewhere for this as well as other upgrades for the fourstroke 50. No luck yet.[img]i/expressions/face-icon-small-disgusted.gif[/img]
