View Full Version : Throttle lever question???
09-19-2012, 01:43 PM
Anyone have any pics of the throttle control opened up? Mine feels like something is causing friction inside.
This is a new issue, it was butter smooth until about a month ago. It is easy to move in reverse and once you get past the the first bit in forward, so I don't think it is a cable issue.
Open to ideas and would love to see pics before I tear into it.

The throttle on my boat is a little different than yours, but mine had a lot of sand mixed in with the grease. A thorough cleaning and fresh grease made mine very smooth.

Idk if yours is different than the one I have on my 1990 prostar, but its a pretty simple design inside. Basically 2 gears that mesh together.
Its an easy fix.

Sounds like a cable issue to me. Perhaps some moisture has gotten to it. Has it sat for a couple weeks or so before it started doing this? I think worst case is you get a new cable, but that is just my opinion.
