Does your throttle lever "fall" when going over rough waves?

If I have my throttle at the midway point, let's say,if I hit heavy waves, bouncing the boat, the throttle lever will fall and the boat will shoot forward. Is this normal? Is there an easy fix?

NO! It should be the opposite. If I'm running 25 mph down the lake and hit some waves hard the throttle actually springs back to make the boat go slower. You need to rebuild that throttle ASAP. That is dangerous.

I just noticed you have an '08, so you are throttle by wire. Sounds like the spring in the throttle had failed, needs attention asap.

Easy fix. Pop the throttle off (hex head nut on the bottom) and then the tension can be adjusted. 10 minute fix.

Someone posted a thread with pictures about this over winter.

If I pop off the throttle won't the cable come out of the handle or is that a simple issue?

Thanks Ky, I had actually just googled it and found the same thread! That's the throttle I have so I'll give it a shot next weekend.
