    Throttle body lube

    Whats the go with spraying lube down that throttle body tube with the yellow cap ?
    For one the red extension tube on the XPS can doesn't fit into the yellow cap tube. Better off taking the black tube off and spraying directly into the t/body defeating the purpose of the tube.

    Also the manual says to spray while holding throttle open and crank engine as this will crank without ignition......... so how many people have 3 hands ???

    Use a piece of string, zip tie, rubber band, whatever you want to hold the throttle open..

    For lubrication of the throttle body..Mainly for salt water riders..

    I took a pair of side cutters and cut the yellow tube down some so the red spray straw could fit in there..

    That was funny just put a rubber band on the throttle finger to the handle bar grip, on pin down drowned mode so the ski won't fire up. That's your third hand the rest of your 2 hands, you know what to do

    Hmmm, I own an 06rxp and I can't seem to find where to lube my throttle body, I don't have an owners manual either. Could somone post a picture of the proper method to lube the throttle body?

    Thanks,
    Scott.

    Jammer,

    Some of the early 06 skis and all the older skis did not incorperate the throttle body lube point..they started putting these in mid 06 and newer models..
