Yamaha 115 Throttle issue
Posted 19 August 2011 - 08:04 PM
When I push the throttle foreward to 3/4-full and let go of it, the throttle returns to almost neutral. Kind of like the old motorcycle throttles used to do. If I want to run wide open I have to hold the throttle forward the whole time.
My other boating buddies have never had an engine to do this.
Is this normal or does it need an adjustment?
I bought the rig used.

Whether it's an adjustment or a replacement issue I couldn't say.

Doug, there is a throttle tension adjustment screw, look on the underside of the throttle housing for a pop out cap, there is a hex screw under the cap for adjusting tension. Tighten it up a little at a time until the throttle feels right, don't go any tighter than needed. Hope this helps
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^X2^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ Had the same issue with my last boat when it was new. Took a couple minutes to tighten up as posted above.
