I have designed a governor in SolidWorks assembly, but when I add a motor to the model in SolidWorks motion study, the governor behave in a wrong way as shown below. What’s your suggestion to fix the error and get an analysis? I also upload my governor here too.
You are doing just fine. (It's analysis). Worked fine for me. ;) Check this.
Hope this helps.

How did you define a variable motor speed while what i see in motor properties is constant speed. & most important point is the contact you defined in assembly that makes the governor to work properly. how did you decide too add such a contact? why not another contact?
Can you explain a little about the change you made in the assembly. why the governor rotates with an unsteady speed while the motor speed is constant. and also if you change the speed of motor from 1 rpm too 1000 rpm the rise of the governor is same which seems to be false. but thank any way.
if i find the answers of those questions i can up-vote the answer. again thanks for your time & attention...
What i have done is start the motor at 0 and then make it revolve at 500rpm after short time. That time the masses are at peak. Then I slowly decreased the speed and the governor comes down. Don't expect too much smooth result since the mass used are very small. Also you haven't assigned material to all the components. Friction is not defined. Therefore the result is not smooth.
Also when i tried the motion it is working correctly. I will post a video of my results.
;D About motor... it's just simple... I just edited the speed at different instant after one time motion calculations. About Contact... If you use different contacts the memory required will be less but the chances that the contact will be in other parts is highly possible therefore i always define a contact between all components.
Also consider the friction in Contact. I had neglected it will cause the loss of energy when rotating.
If by, wrong way, you mean the direction it's going, with in the settings of the motor you'll find the options to reverse direction.
