Verado hesitation

Just curious really.....

have been using a Ribtec with a 150 Verado (about 6 months old) for a bit of EA work....I generally quite like the Verado but have noticed that if you power off then back on swiftly there is a definate hesitation from the engine....which is a little bit disconcerting in big stuff.....

I mentioned it to the vessels reponsible officer who said 'yeah it does that'..... Is this an issue with this particular Verado or is it a trait of 'fly by wire'?

Thanks

It could just be the way its set up, prop not correct, engine height etc etc. Its not normal to have a hesitation on Verado.

Thanks TBH it really spoils the boat..... In all other aspects I really like the Verado......well, except the top mount control which due to the fly by wire /lack of friction requires a gentle touch not to run past neutral.....as per our Opti top mount, no neutral lock, but no friction either.....

Have you tried out one of the new 4 strokes yet? Whats the verdict /How does it compare to Verado /Opti?

Not had chance of a test run yet. There is only one in the uk that i know of and its a pre production version. Cant get hold of the things until next month. Also i think you have got friction control on your throttle, just got to take the cover off and adjust it. Verado too i seem to remember.

Would be interested to hear how you get on when you do get hold of one

Yup, have friction control on ours.... Was just using the Verado for a few days /not ours, so no opp to adjust it etc..... Good to know though, would make a big difference

Never had that happen on ours in over two years of use.

If the friction control is set up well, you should also feel more confident
