Do any of you out there use the hi-stick off function on the GV-1 (When you go to hi stick the Governor turns off to provide full throttle.)?

Is it worth it or just leaving it governed the whole time. Does this feature do you any good?

Just wondering?!

I suppose if you use this 'feature' then you will need to have your curves setup to match the headspeed that you are trying to govern at.

Reason is that if the governor switches off at full throttle and you overspeed the head then when you lower the throttle yes the governor will switch on, but if the head speed is more than 10% (or something like that) of the speed you have setup in the governor it will stay off.

You should have your governor set to the rpm the engine will pull at full throttle. Set up like this it makes no difference if you use the governor off feature or not, as long as your limits are set correctly.

I've heard that some use this feature. Their thinking is that if all hell breaks loose and they need everything the engine will give them. Then they want the gov to turn off at say 96% then the engine will give full power no matter what.

I personally do not use this feature. Just what I've heard.
