    Question sticky throttle

    Ok, new question. I have a three seater, not sure what model due to somebody repainting it, but its a 96 model year. Anyway, the throttle shaft sticks a bit, the lever doesn't return to good. will this free up with usage or do I need to take the carb off and replace the shaft housing? You've all been helpfull thus far, let's see how this one goes.
    Thanks

    Don't ride it like that. It's dangerous.

    Unhook the cable from the carbs. Pull the lever- is it hard to pull either way? Then try moving the carb butterflys - they should move easily and snap closed. If not then you have carb linkage problems.

    Let me know which one it is, and I'll tell you what to do.

    Question

    I disconnected the cable and lubed it, so the cable moves fine. Then, with the cable off, I worked the lever on the side of the carb and it pulls easy to full throttle, but retracts slowly to idle. Also, the ski wont idle. I haven't adjusted the idle stop yet, not untill I find out about the throttle. Thanks again.

    The ski not returning to idle is probably the linkage.

    Take the carbs off. Take all the linkage off. See if all the shafts move freely. If those are fine, check the springs. They may have broken or bent.

    Shot-In-Dark: were the carbs serviced recently?

    I installed a worm clamp on the inter-carb fuel lines with the worm gear up and it caused the same problem. When the carbs were off the action was perfect but when I installed them the pipe would press the clamp on the top of the throtle shaft(oposite the linkage) causing them to stick open.

    -it took a LONG time to find the problem. I use T&B zip ties(w/SS inserts) now!
