    Sticky Throttle body

    Hey guys,
    my throttle body is a little sticky sometimes. I was thinking about disassembing it and cleaning it up good. is the rotor on this thing regular or reverse thread? i dont wanna go and break it off. i replaced the throttle cable last season, its not the cable. seems like its the spring.... also any close shots of the seadoo fogging kit while i have it off?

    As in cars, a lot of times gas will cause carbon build up on throttle bodies, Open the plate and clean the back side of it and try that.

    I almost went into the trees at 50+ MPH due to sticky throttle body. It was due to the butterfly being out of round not working properly. Unfortunatley there is no rebuild so I bought another one and have yet another one lined up as a spare.

    It can also just be rusty shaft. It is simple to remove the throttle cable assembly and spring and clean it up. Also the other side where the sensor is. I would do that first. That definately helped mine to be able to ride for the weekend but because the bitterfly was out of round it would not close properly and was still sticky.

    Fine emory cloth and a small amount of assembly lube will do the trick.
