    I own a Bobcat ZT 200 rider that cuts like crap . I need to get my RPM up to 3750 how do adjust engine to up the RPM'S? I already loosened the 10 mm bolts on the throttle plate in the back and slid it down as far as it will go . But can only get 3400 out of it .
    Please help!!

    Thanks in advance , Steve

    If I'm not mistaken, it should be moved up. (what I have to do to get them up on my 17 HP Kaw)

    Hmmm. sounds kinda odd. Someone will give better advise.

    (Two weeks later of searching, and still can't find out the torque specs. for the head bolts on this FH500V..... but no doubt, you'll have better luck here)

    Yeah.....the plate needs to be moved up....not down. There is also a limit screw on the plate.

    Sory guys I was wrong I did move it up not down. My mechanic said to stop by Monday and he would move the Gov. spring .
    Than we can adjust the plate because the plate is as far as it will go .


    Thanks for the help guys, Steve
