    96 Wave Venture 1100 reverse lever wont go down unless engine is off

    Yeah , so this is weird .. hoping someone can help me out.... When I am in the water with the jet ski running I can switch the lever into reverse and back up with no problems but when I try to go back into forward the lever will not go down.. If i turn the engine off then it will .. out of the water the lever moves freely with no issues but when in the water while running it will absolutely not go back into forward .. Ive greased the cable but thats all not sure what else to do .. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated

    The reverse gates get sloppy over time and part of the assembly is hanging up on itself. Put it in reverse then go to the gate and lift it as you watch for where it's binding up.

    Does the gate have both of the springs on it? There should be one to either side, these may effect the return action.
