    Default Stiff Throttle

    Just got the Mojo out for the first run of the year and I noticed that the throttle is considerably stiffer going from drive to neutral than it was when I put it away. Anyone experienced this? I am assuming it is the cable linkage and it may need to be lubricated

    I wonder if there is an adjustment that can be made. I test drove a max with a throttle that was so loose it would drop down a bit after hitting a bump and the boat would accelerate if the cruise was not on.

    Kent, is the thruster option on your boat “fly by wire” or cable?

    Great question, I havenít dug into it.

    My guess is the thruster is hardwired and throttle is still cable driven.

    That was my assumption as well given the ergos it operates under.

    Itís not the throttle itself thatís stiff and Iím pretty sure the throttle drive by wire and doesnít have an actual cable. Itís the shift from drive to neutral and neutral to reverse that is stiff all off the sudden and I think that is still a cable linkage. Once in gear itís smooth as it has always been.

    Remove the cable from the transmission and see if the stiffness goes away.

    So you can tell everyone now, your boat has a stiffy.

    Sorry, I just could not help it. Hope you can work it out.

    So apparently when I winterized it I ran the exhaust cooling hose OVER the shift linkage. Moving it under the shift linkage made the throttle butter smooth again.
