    Umi finger throttle not enough travel

    I have recently purchased a UMI Steeering set up for my 2006 RXP
    It came with the billet quick trim/start & stop housing and finger throttle,
    I have tried every way to get the finger throttle to pull the throttle open all the way,
    It has the adapter and is a smooth set up,
    but if it pulls the throttle wide open, then it wont let it close all the way to idle correctly,
    or it idles right and wont open far enough for wide open,

    has anyone had this problem?
    I was thinking of bending the finger lever to get more pull,
    thanks,

    I have had the same problem myself, if you look at the butterfly in the TB when cable is fully pulled sometimes it goes over centre so you don't have to pull all the way to get WOT. I would check this out first. When looked at mine I found out I did not need the fill travel to get the butterfly straight inside the TB. Yours maybe the same. I am sure someone else will gave had this problem too and will come in with what they did.

    There is a write up on here. Let me see if I can find it. I cant find the exact thread I am thinking of but if you search "umi Throttle" a few things come up that will help.

    I grinded down my lever flat where touches the grip.
    Works perfect!
    Pics are in thread on here once it is found.

    I had to bend the lever and grind the hinge.

    I was trying to bend the lever with a ring wrench while it was on the ski, and I didn't want to snap it off,
    so I thought I would come to the Hulk and check out what everyone else had done,

    thanks,

    I would be careful bending it, it can snap. Grind it flat where touches grip..
    I will post pics when get to computer.
