Switch Kit Hookup Directions – LR 5.x SF Models

Permanent Connection

You can “hardwire” the motor for either of 2 modes:

MODE 1: Highest Top Speed

(This gives the greatest top speed. Depending on the topography where the vehicle will be operated, you may want to have your motor in a permanent high-speed mode. This is suitable when the hills are mild and the vehicle does not have oversized tires or low gear ratio rear-ends).

MODE 1: Connections

  1. Connect system leads to S1 terminal and S2 terminal as normal.
  2. Connect S1 terminal to LR2 terminal using a short jumper lead.
  3. Connect S2 terminal to LR1 terminal using a short jumper lead.*Note (S1and S2 terminals should have 2 leads connected.)

*Note (S1and S2 terminals should have 2 leads connected.)

MODE 2: Lower Top Speed – greatest Ultimate torque

(This gives slightly slower top speed, but improves the ability to climb hills or do other stressful activities where great speed is not a requirement.)

MODE 2: Connections

  1. Connect system leads to S1 terminal and S2 terminal as normal.
  2. Connect LR1 terminal to LR2 terminal, using a short jumper lead.

Switchable Connection

If it is desirable to switch from the MODE 1 to MODE 2 on the fly, this can be accomplished through the use of an EXTRA forward/reverse switch common to most golf cars. EMP has instructions for the application of a Club Car Forward/Reverse switch and instructions for the connection. Both a mounting template and an Instruction sheet are included with these instructions.

This type of arrangement is convenient when the use of the vehicle varies widely. For instance, if normal use is 1 rider on flat ground, then the vehicle could be kept in the MODE 1 (high-speed setting). However, if intermittent higher loading (multiple passengers, very hilly conditions) is encountered, switching to MODE 2 will protect motor and decrease the rate of battery drain.

IMPORTANT: If switch is to be used, it is necessary to remove the jumper leads provided by EMP for the permanent connection. (Leaving Jumper leads in place will not allow proper current flow and may damage motor.)

Use of Extra Club Car F/R Switch to enable Speed or Torque Modes**



  1. Connect provided leads as shown. Note that flag terminal with smaller hole attached to F-R Switch. Note that connections to “1” and “2” require 1/4-20 screw and nut. Connections to “A” and “B” require #10-24 screws.
  2. Connect leads to motor studs as indicated
  3. Please note that you will now have 2 leads connected to motor S2 and S1 studs
  4. Mount F/R switch in Golf Car so that handle is in accessible location. Please note that in position shown, motor will be in TORQUE (lo speed) mode. The other switch position is HI Speed Mode.
