You need to cut into a power wire, Either to the control box or to the motor, then you add a small value, high wattage resistor in series. This lowers the voltage to the motor.
The lower voltage means the motor generates less torque
The disadvantage is that it may draw more current and that can do damage
Got the idea when I'd accidently disconnected the batteries and ran it in with low voltage.. VERY SLOWLY
I see Power Gear has a procedure for "Adjusting the amprage" on some controllers... Wish I knew where the controller was.
