A speed governor is a speed limiting device which either acts on the fuel supply line or the accelerator to control the speed at a specified speed.
There are primarily two types of speed governors ( speed limiter device).
  1. Fuel Control Type of SLD: The fuel control type of speed limiter device reduces the fuel momentarily when the driving speed exceeds the specified speed.
  2. Accelerator Control SLD: The accelerator control speed limiter device operates on the accelerator of the vehicle, which will be disabled beyond the specified speed.
either of the type of speed limiter device do not impact on the engine or the pick up.
This is a general misconception as the speed governors merely operate to control the speed of a vehicle to the set speed of the governor. they either work on the fuel line or on the accelerator. Either of the speed governors never impact the engine or the pick up. The pick up of a vehicle would depend on a variety of factors which include horse power of the vehicle, contracted load, torque of the engine, condition of the vehicle and the engine, no. of kilometers run, condition of the roads etc.
Before purchasing a speed governor you must check if the speed governor being purchased has a valid approval from the testing agency as prescribed by the government of India. the certificate of approval should be specific and be applicable for
  1. Make of the Vehicle
  2. Class of the Vehicle
  3. Speed as notified by the Government namely 50 KMPH or 65 KMPH.
As a matter of caution please check if the vendor selling the speed governors has got a good service back up.
