    Throttle Sticking Only when engine is running

    I just did my oil change and my throttle was stuck, just coming out of winterization.

    I moved it by hand and it came loose and works perfectly if the engine is off, very smooth and snaps right back.

    But when the engine is running, it just sticks, like it moves but then remains at that point like a cruise control or something.

    Its very strange and im not sure what it is.

    Can anyone help ?? Do i need to adjust the top screw there or add some silicone lubricant?? I dont wanna do anything that might make it worse.

    Got my oil changed properly but now i gotta worry about this

    Thanks in advance.

    If you ride in salt water and it's a new ski, there is a port/tube in the throttle body where you and inject Bombardier lube to keep it from sticking. Older TBs need to be done manually... Ron

    i just found that thread,

    im going to my seadoo dealer tomorrow to get the kit for my RXP to get the lube kit. I ride in the salt every so often and its kind of annoying to have this issue.

    Here is the link for others that are having the same problem. Hopefully they can do mine tomorrow
