    Engine racing when started?

    2007 gpr. No engine mods. Took the ski into the shop for the throttle cable recall. While it was there decided to have the dplate and f/a installed. They said after it was done, when they started it, the engine was racing or reving high like it was lean. They said it may require a fuel controller to fix? Sounds to me that the throttle cable may be installed or adjusted wrong? Would a lean condition cause the ski to rev or race when started? help please.

    most likely the cable is not adjusted correctly

    Thumbs up

    Sounds like they were able to adjust the throttle cable. Thanks again for the phone call WFO.

    Sounds like a ploy to get you to buy a Fuel Controller. Dealerships are idiots
