Mule 3010 Gas Governor

I got a request to see pics of the gov adjustments I have done. With this adjustment I was able to get about a 10MPH gain. Now my mule goes 38 MPH according to the GPS. Fairly simple adjustment, I drilled a new hole on the gov arm and moved the existing spring to the new hole, 3/4 of an inch. Made one adjustment to the idle screw to lower it so as not to grinds the gears while shifting.

Good job, it keeps the limitation and allows for the soft ECM governor to surge the throttle when you hit the limiter.

If you do not care about keeping some ability for the engine to self-regulate according to load you can accomplish the much same thing by just using a nylon tie or bent wire link to tie the two arms together.

Watch your front end for any looseness or tie rods that are about to fail, and remember your tires are not made for speeds much over what the Mule did originally.

If toys will get me in the door when it is time to go, I have it made!

Not sure on the older ones but IIRC I think it can be done by changing the CDI.

I believe the 2510 is the same as the 3010 as far as the governor is concerned. Look for the triangular cover where the throttle cable terminates at the engine end.

Hello all. New guy here, long time lurker. Anyway I tried the governor mod that Fuelman did to his trans but with differant results. I have a 2007 3010 with 255 hrs. I didn't GPS it before the gov. mod but I did after and I got a whopping 28.6 MPH out of it on a flat road both ways. I did it just like it was explained. Any ideas???? I have to recheck my airpressure yet and try it again.....Thanks.....Mike

I had my mule up to 74 MPH a while ago, that was on the GPS but the Speedometer on the Tahoe towing it registered 75 while it was inside my enclosed trailer, it makes a difference on the GPS if you are on a steep grade. If you want the Mule to go faster put on a set of 22" wheels and tires, or get a faster tow vehicle....... but watch the top if you haul it on an open trailer

Will modifying the governor shorten the life of the engine?
