    New to the board - idle adjustment question

    Just rode my new (new to me) GPR for the first time today. It's a 2000 w/ some real basic mods: D-plate, chip, premix, PPK, and 13/19 Solas. It has a newer engine out of an '03 XLT.

    Anyways - I know what the idle speed should be at, but what should the idle adjuster "feel" like? On my last ski (Kawi Ultra 150), you could feel the adjuster turn like a threaded connection. On this one, it feels sticky and if I turn it half a turn, it just springs back. I didn't actually adust it in the water, I was playing with it when I got home this evening. Is that the way these are supposed to feel?

    Thanks in advance,
    Rich

    Welcome to the forum.
    i wish I could answer the question, but I know mine feels the same way. I had to screw with it a while to get set correctly. I had to turn it a little past what I wanted it to be set at, then it would return back a bit to what I wanted. Either you and I had the same problem, or they are supposed to be the way.

    RX951, where you at?

    Cool

    The idle tweeker is a spring material, look almost like speedometer drive cable so it has some give when tiring to adjust idle (should be about 2500 out of water 15-17 in)

    later cd

    exactly. I've also seen them freeze up and get stuck at the end where it is threaded into. It'll give it that spring back feel too when it does this.

    Adjust it and watch your idle.
