Stiff throttle

Just finished my boat today and started the engine
for the first time. Everything is fine except the throttle.
For some strange reason the throttle is very stiff when
I move it forward, but not when I move it back.
Initially I though maybe was the way I routed the cables
through the console that made it stiff.
But if I disconnect the throttle cable from the lever in the
outboard they move freely. Any suggestions ?

Thanks

Same with mine, I just live with it. It's just a little tricky at manouvering speeds, but great when things get a litle bumpy.

I found that the springs on each of the Carbs all add upto my problem and there's nothing I can do. Mabe it's the same with yours, try to operate by hand the throttle control lever where the linkage from your remotes terminate ie:bottom of carbs

My new RIB has not been in the water yet. Controls smooth as silk until I hook em up to the carbs! I am hoping that it gets better with use.

Seems to be a common problem.

Anyone got any easy solutions?

had the same problem on the valiant 490 with the 60 mariner, i was told to buy a better quality grade of cable did the trick.

Thanks

Not a problem for me though. Mine where new platinum ones last year. When the throttle lever remotes aren't connected they run as sooth as silk. Soon as they are connected to the Carb linkage it bogs down.....Springs
