    As some of you know I have a 1992 Hyundia cart and would like to change the spring in the driven clutch. I know a certain company sells springs but by the time I get it into my hands it will have cost me about $100 for it. And that just ain't gonna happen
    I have heard that the driven spring out of a Umax or the Ezgo utility vehicle is a stiffer spring than the regular golf cart driven spring. Does anyone know anything about this?
    The next problem is that I am not sure what my driven clutch is closer to, a Yamaha or a Ezgo

    Sounds good. It may tomorrow before I get to see it. Does it look like the one's on Bu's Yamaha Gas section? Pm me the pic at Bu's if it will be easier for you.

    Spriddle, here it is.
    You have no idea how hard it was to take that picture after eating a bunch of barbequed hamburgers ! [​IMG]

    Very similar to the Yamaha type rear clutches.

    I'm sure Hyundia probably used common parts, it's just a matter of figuring out what it was they used.[/QUOTE]
    Alot of things on this cart are Yamaha, I think. When I bought the cart, there was a Yamaha sitting beside it that was just beat to crap and it was $200 more than the Hyundia. I got to comparing both and the frames were the same, the airbox and alot of other things.
    It almost looked like Hyundia took a Yamaha frame, installed a Suzuki 8 1/2 horse engine, a Hyundia nameplate and hubcaps and called the cart their own.
    Does anyone know where I can get a driven spring out of a Yamaha Umax ? They are supposed to be stiffer than the regular golf cart spring.

    I'm looking in my Yamaha parts books and the spring is about 1/2" longer with the coils spaced further apart. I would say it would be stiffer when compressed. Heres the Yamaha part#: 90508-45849-00.

    You could call Buggies to see if they have any. Wonder if the torque spring would fit. Of course it might put too much strain on the drive clutch if worn.

    Thanks for the part # HRC.
    Spriddle, I bet a torque spring would work, but I don't know if I want to go with that stiff of a spring yet.
    I think I will try and find a Yamaha cart dealer around here first. If not, then Buggies will get a call.
    The shipping, brokerage fees and duties on parts just kills me.
    I just had a quote from UPS to ship my 20" tires to Chatham Ont. which is about 3 1/2 hours from me and the quote was $65 which included the box to put the tires in.
    For instance, if a part costs $50 US funds by the time I get it to my front door it will be almost $100 Canadian

    It's just all crap [​IMG]

    It is crazy.
    I do have access to a US mailbox which gets me past the UPS charges at the border but then I have to drive to Niagara Falls NY to get the parts and then I have to declare the parts at the border when I come back across. And if I am driving there and back there is gonna be a stop somewhere for food plus the gas I will use for the drive.
    So either way I pay through the nose for the parts.

    I found a Yamaha dealer a couple of hours from here a while ago and finally got off my butt and ordered the Umax driven spring today. It is not a stock item so it will take a few days to get here.
    So when it gets here I will install it and see how it works.

    I got the spring yesterday and had a look at it tonight. I don't think it will work.
    The diameter doesnt look big enough to go over the moveable shieve collar and the tabs at the ends of the springs go the wrong way.
    Oh well, back to the drawing board!!!!!
    I think I am going to look into snowmobile clutch springs.
