Yamaha 90hp 2 stroke idle issues
I wonder if anyone here can shed any light on a problem I'm having with my outboard.
I bought it 18 odd months ago for my rib project, it seemed good at the time and had very low hours on it, it was a gamble but one I thought worth taking.
Its been on a pallet in my garage ever since, at the weekend I got it out, bolted it to the boat, connected it up and it started and it ran nicely, it sounds georgous.
Problem is it won't return to its idle position via the 703 hand control unit. If I disconnect the throttle cable and control the lever under the hood by hand it's fine, (so the engine is running nicely) but I do have to turn it back to idle rather than it spring back to the default idle position.
I am wondering if that's the way it should be do I need a new throttle cable? Both cables seem to me to be ok, they are original Yamaha kit and move backwards and forwards within their sleeve fine.
Forward, neutral & reverse are working fine.
If you can help, many thanks in advance.
