Optimax at idle is racing
Year old 175 opti is fine trawling and running round and at idle most of the time.
I have found though that when i put it in neutral it races, ie revs surge up and down and up and down and up and down etc. If selecting a gear when racing it obviously doesnt do the gearbox any good.
It doesn't always happen, sometimes it idles perfectly. Im going to mention it to the dealer when i take it out at end of season and ask them their thoughts when they winterise it.
Has anyone else come across this ever?? If so, what was it? I'm guessing with very basic knowledge it may be the automatic choke in some way shape or form.
