Have read as much as I can on the 120 Polaris mini and have some questions. 1. The manual says to move the governor spring to make it go faster. Do I just move the spring to another hole or do I adjust the screw that stops the throttle from opening all the way?
2. Should I bypass the governor or leave it alone due to fear of the internal gear breaking?
3.Anyone put a hand warmer kit on these yet?
Also, great site here!

The spring could either have a tie-wrap looped through the spring or replace the spring with a steel link made out of welding rod or something, should over ride the govenor. when doing this there is a risk of the plastic governor gear inside the enginge breaking.
As for the governor, I was looking to get the most from the stock setup without actually bypassing the governor. The manual says to just move the spring to a different hole. Is this right? Also, the throttle lever won't go all the way to the handle, it looks like there is a long screw on the linkage under the hood that hits a stop on top of the motor. Can this screw be bakced off to get more throttle?

You have to look inside the carb to see if the carb is actuly open all the way, the screw on the top is a stop, or limit so you don't bend the arm on the carb by pushing it to hard. If it doesn't open all the way, you might need more slack in the throttle cable. As far as the gov. I'm honestly not sure on the holes. Most people we deal with have it tied off, or removed. On small industrial engines I do know you can fine tune the gov with the small holes, but no idea on which ones. Bob
