on my 2005 197 with 50hrs just noticed a throttle hesitation, where the distance between neutral to idle is much further than before...when the throttle is engaged, goes immediately to 1200rpm with a significant surge forward...

now have to easily bump forward to get the true idle...

any thoughts???had a buddy mention to check the cable running to the transmission for some play...will try to check that tonight...

Seem to remember reading some things on the 05's needing a ECM update. Something to do with the 1st year of being TBW and some minor corrections needed in the computer. THat could be it or it could be something totally different. :confused:

Doesn't sound like a fuel pump issue to me so I'd almost guess it's electronic.

had the ECM reflashed Oct 2005 then it was up at the dealer this spring and they didn't mention a reflash...

wouldn't this be something that the dealer or MC would send out a "Urgent Message" about???could be very dangerous if someone didn't know better...

certainly not a fuel issue...

think it must be something electrical, because the gauges have gone out on occasion, especially the fuel gauge...just bumming to have to take it up during the season!!!

got it figured out tonight...there is a metal clasp that holds the throttle on the transmission, allowed it to slip out of the slot...just bent it back into shape, worked perfect!!!
