Likewise, most Honda lawnmower-size engines (GV150, GV200, GXV120, GXV140, etc.) are governed for 3100 RPM tops, with a marginal error (the plus/minus constant) of 100 RPM (3000-3200 RPM). That is, if any of you mechanics are familiar with and/or have preferences to this term.

Correct. When put under a load the gov will adjust the speed back to 3000-3200 rpms.
