tight throttle control

Recommended Posts

Howdy all...Having some issues with my throttle lever, I cant seem to feather the speed out of it and it seems tight (actually I was backing  my boat out of my boat well, in reverse then once I cleared the dock I put the control in the neutral setting ready to go forward,but the control locked in the neutral position. I couldn't go forward or in reverse. boy did that suck  and I had a heavy west wind on top of this, I was getting blown into some very expensive boats in the well across from me) I had the marina install a new throttle cable before all this happened hoping it would ease the throttle a bit, but everything seems to be the same as it was. I was thinking about getting a new throttle (Sea star xtream series single lever duel function control) and cable.  I have a 24' trophy hard top with a side mount throttle control 5.0 I/O....Any input would be Greatly Appreciated  thx

Raven, on some throttle/shift you can remove cover and there is a set screw that can be adjusted for ease of movement. I would contact the person that installed the cable they should know.

Thanks I will definitely check that out. If that doesn’t work my next step was to take it back to the marina. This all happened when I was taking my boat out for winter storage of course. Lol

Sometime steering and throttle cables will tighten up over winter if old and you might need to replace the cable.

Thanks EdB  I will probably replace the cables as soon as winter breaks
