How to take a part 2005 RXP throttle body? Instructions?
I haven't used my 2005 Saedoo RXP for a while and Ive just gone over it and I cant move the throttle at all.
Under closer inspection the actual throttle body is stuck tight.
Is there instructions somewhere I can use to see how to take it apart and lube it all up. Is that the right thing to do in the first place?
Any help would greatly be appreciated.

Remove the throttle body from the intake manifold and submerge it in a coffee can full of deisel fuel for an hour or two. After that, use spray lube on the butterfly valve assy. inside and out and see what that gets you. Wipe it down real good when you're done. You might try to lube the throttle cable too.

they lock up non-stop in salt water skis... by far the number one spring time repair on 4-tecs... actually it could be a close tie between lcoked up TBs or locked up old version steering cables
have never seen a throttle cable lock up... but have seen several dozen TBs lock up.
most of them free up with spraying them down and breaking them free and working them back and forth and letting them soak... many times it's just putting a band-aid on a bullethole.... it'll lock up again the next time u dont use it often... unless you spray it down internally as part of ur regualr maintenance.
if you have a 2002-2005 4-tec... you can buy the throttle body lube kit update which you drill the TB and put a fitting with a hose and nipple to attach a can of spray lube to inject into the TB... the position of this fitting is before the TB blade so it settles in the bottom of the TB where the shaft comes thru, as that's where it locks up.... 06 and newer skis already have this lube kit (altho a few early 06 models snuck out without the kits)
as long as you dont touch the idle adjustment screw... ur fine. I've taken the whole butterfly and shafts out of several of them that were severely locked up, or repeat customers that come in annually for the same issue (locked up TB) once it comes in twice it's time to dismantle and really clean it out and install the lube kit and show them how to do it every few rides.
