    seadoo gti - sticking & increasing throttle problem??? - please help - thanks

    I have a seadoo gti le rfi which the throttle started sticking on when I was last out on it and now when I start out of the water - throttle keeps rising????

    I can get my hand on the throttle lever in the engine bay to stop it from increasing but have no idea how to go about fixing it?

    when I use the hand throttle on steering - it does not spring back?

    im assuming its the connection on the engine and not on the hand throttle? I don't want to start pulling it apart until I get some advise ?

    any advise would be greatly appreciated - thanks

    just been onto seadoo and they telling me that it would be more than likely the butterfly spring on the throttle body- at $110hr for 3-4 hrs fix I reckon its a rip off- has anyone got experience taking of the throttle / butterfly spring?

    ive only recently purchased the ski second hand - so maybe previous owner had over tightened it. :/ any info would be help thanks

    I can install all the parts there in about 1.5 hours from taking everything off a ski to being ready to go to the water.

    Remove the flame arrestor to access throttle body first. Unhook the throttle cable end from the throttle body (without loosening the 10mm nuts) and check the throttle lever itself for proper movement. If it operates smoothly and feels spring loaded then the problem lies in your cable.

    hey jim & my self - I pulled the throttle cable as advised & yes its the cable- the butterfly spring seems to be in good working order - not sticking etc.- so im just about to ebay one now.

    But.. I noticed that there was another shorter cable running back from throttle body to the front of on the ignition casing? that cable runs onto another lever - Oil Pump Ass'y - which is moving freely & not springing back to any particular point????????? the more I look the more problems I find- live n learn eh? anyway......

    It looks broken for a while, the previous owner said it is oil injected and not premixed- the ski is quite smokey on start up so im assuming there is oil getting through.

    I def bough a piece of cr#p - any advise besides sinking it????? ebay an oil pump and refit? anyone got any experience with pulling this apart before I butcher it?

    I did do a compression check on cylinders -both at 160 so maybe there is still hope for this ski with a little tlc

    Get us a pic. It's possible the lever was in the wrong position when the cable was attached. It probably needs to be "wound" back into proper position. Easy to do.
