I know exactly what you mean. This is pretty much the only way to combat that.Awesome good to hear its working great. You put in a lot of work. I was also thinking about wrapping my exhaust since I run a bump seat in-between my front seats and its crazy hot. Pretty much can melt a plastic bottle in the middle cup holder
Hey! I been looking all over for a cheap 48v golf cart or maybe a gas one. I especially like the yamahas. My wife wants one for us to take when we go camping. Know of any deals?I know right? I think I'll just leave it sit in the garage....Fire it up once in a while and show it off.... It should last a long time by doing that, right? I have a buddy that works at a can am dealership in New York. He was telling me that in his short time of working there, he's already seen four commanders come in with blown gearboxes. Failed seals seem to be the main culprit. But I am sure you all know that. LOL
Thanks everyone for all your help!!! I feel like I am a full blown mechanic now...lol.. My forte was building golf carts before this thing arrived. Even though this whole experience sucked ass and was very expensive, I really enjoyed tearing this machine apart and putting it back together. I now understand this thing from top to bottom.
Yeah, it probably is slow...Sorry. I generally watch facebook for a dead or non running golf carts and be ready with cash in hand to buy it immediately because they don't last more than a day. Buy it and fix it. They are very easy to work on, especially with your clutch experience. Stay away from battery carts unless you find one with new batteries, as they are very expensive. I always go gas. Other choice is to find a gas cart recently off the course. Minimum cost is $2,700 for stock cart. Then buy parts yourself to lift, tires, etc. Here's one I bought for $700. I put a Polaris Scrambler 550 engine in it. Did 65 mph.Guessing that is a scam ad. . . See a lot of those.
Thanks Upfree! Yes, I agree. My son is buying a 2021 Polaris sportsman this week, as he just sold his side by side. Hopefully I just may have something to go ride with him on. Or, something for him to tow back to the trailer. LOL.Congrats to ya Mason on getting your Commander trail worthy again!!
Hopefully your next fix will be something new,... instead of that damn gearbox!
Like me,..lol. Fixed the gearbox,.. went for a rip. Next thing I know,.. replacing the swing arm, wheel bearing, and axle. Got that all fixed up,.. and now today I am waiting on another new part,.... a front CV Axle for my 4WD will work properly. Maybe someday I'll quit wrenching on this thing. But that won't be til I sell it.
