How do I set the throttle and trans cable? I understand how to move them in/out (tighter/looser) but is there a way to set how tight they are without being out on the water? I often have to jiggle to throttle a lot to get the boat to find neutral to start and when pulling if I'm at a set speed and want to back off, the throttle will move back about 1/4" before engaging the cable to slow down.

You can adjust the throttle cable, at the carb. It's trial and error. You do need, just a bit of play. You can get close on the trailer. Slight adjustment, maybe necessary on the water. Takes about 1 minute. If you have the original cable, maybe time for replacement.

Dont want to be a thread theif but Im having almost the same problem. Adjust one way and it shifts smooth into forward but then 2500RPM until rev kicks in. Adjust it to middel and same for forward and rev and adjust back no forward?
