    Hello,
    I have a 2004 48" floating deck Great Dane. I recently had to take it in for service and got a full tune up. That was about two weeks ago. One I got it back, it was way faster than it was before. :D Now it seems like it has returned to its slower speed. :sleeping: What causes this? Is there a way to make an adjustment to keep the speed up. Thanks for any replies.

    maybe our throttle cable is loose keeping it from full throttle. i don't think the governor would need adjustment so soon. maybe need some more info. you could ask the service tech what he did to raise the rpm's

    Thanks for the replies guys. The engine is a 17 hp kawasaki. The engine sounds like it is running the same, just doesn't seem to move as fast. Thanks again.

    I was headed towards a RPM problem,But if the engine sounds the same I won't be of any help for I'm not familiar with the Great Dane line.
    I believe I'd call the dealer that done the tune and service and ask them this question.
