    I have never ran across a adjustment, They are set/ported to the OEM's requested specifications at the factory.

    Only a few ways to get there:

    Bigger pumps
    Smaller wheel motors
    Larger tires
    Overdrive your pumps (smaller pump pulleys or larger crankshaft pulley.- Not a good idea

    Agreed, I'm not even so sure if larger tires is such a great one but it might do, still if you're all about doing this you'd be best off along the lines of bigger pumps and/or smaller wheel motors.
