    Throttle cable and VTS question

    Hey all, finally got off my a$$ to get my ski ready for the upcoming Aus Summer


    I've noticed that my throttle cable seems to have a bit of slack in it. When you pull the finger wide open there is still a little more you can turn the butterfly by hand, from memory when it was on BUDS last time, the TPS was reading 100% open, but this seems odd to me. Is this normal? Can someone check this on their ski and let me know?

    Also has anyone had an issue with their vts motor becoming weak? I've had an ongoing VTS issue, when I pulled the unit to check it out, after playing with it for a bit it started working. As soon as I put it back in to position, It stopped again I would have thought either the motor was good, or it was dead, no in between??

    Your throttle cable need setup it's not normal to have gaps! Be careful.

    The VTS when you install it back together you must put the bolt gear in the middle and do some up-down so the trim read automatic it's position. Also the motor must be secure with the three bolts before this...

    Thanks bud, how exactly do you adjust the throttle cable? I only took a quick look, but I'm assuming it is pretty easy?

    I did run the VTS up and down many times, it was reading on the cluster just fine. I thought it must have just got stuck in the one position then freed itself when I played around. But after re-installing it, it wasnt moving again. The battery was getting pretty flat though, I will check it tomorrow after a good charge.

    Had VTS motors go bad...same thing as yours..replaced the motor and all was good again....As far as the throttle cable,it may have stretched over do time.you can re adjust it...or better yet,replace it with a new one...

    Thanks Scott. How'd your ski end up going over Summer? What speed you manage to squeeze out?
