How can I Speed up my 2004 Yamaha 36 v golf cart short of changing motor
We just bought a 2004 electric 36 v Yamaha golf cart. Works fine in all respects but is the slowest golf cart in community! We installed all new batteries and cables. Any quick fixes that don't involve switching out the motor?

Most electric golf carts run on a max speed of 12MPH. It all depends on the voltage. The higher the voltage, the faster the speed. Most electric carts out there run on either a 36 or 48 volt operating system and can only last about 20-25 miles per each charge.
There are some new carts coming to market that are able to travel faster and possibly on less energy and can go up to 19 MPH. Many of the latest models are operated by computers and have quite a few high quality and unique components compared to older trolleys and carts. If you want or need something faster, they are worth look into.

Verify series battery wiring. The main positive wire which goes to the solenoid should be on a positive battery post, that will be your main positive. Then from there we go series to all the rest of the batteries until we are left with a negative battery post, that will be your main negative. Make sure your charger wires are connected to the mains.
batteries will get hot when working as there is current flow across the plates . For batteries to get noticeable hot then there is a current draw that exceeds the capacity of the battery . This indicates a problem electric motor in the system (Worn bushes/bearings -armature poling out --shorting windings or armature) it may also indicate shorting between batteries from a battery that has collapsing cells . Have each battery inderpendently load tested
Do you have a multimeter to check DC voltage ? You possibly could have the batteries hooked up wrong and not getting 36 VDC. Also did you replace with the same number (6) 6 volt batteries or three 12 volt ?
