Tip of the day: Throttle adjustment
How many of you have checked your throttle adjustment on your skis?
Most will find that it's off robbing you of RPM's.
When holding the throttle all the way down check and see where your throttle position is on the throttle body. Many have adjusted the throttle to turn the butterfly all the way against the stop which is wrong as the butterfly in the TB can actually over travel in the throttle body bore.
To get it right you will have to peep thru the throttle body opening to ensure the butterfly is straight while the throttle lever is held wide open and not slightly cocked like you will have with an over adjusted or underadjusted throttle cable.

good tip, jerry. ive adjusted mine but never looked inside to see if the butterfly was straight at full pull. another thing on my list for the winter

I just would of thought against the stop was straight and wide open. There I go making assumptions with this ski again.

R-Doo, i made that assumption many times too. I noticed last night that the throttle was off at full pull on Carey's ski as it had slightly over traveled.

What should the measurement be from the end of the throttle to the throttle stop should be? I did at one point also think you want it to slam shut at the stopper. I just though why dont i remove the hose fomr the IC and look in there.
