Throttle popping into gear without button

Recommended Posts

pkh

The other day I had the engine on and throttle at idle, I swung over the into the seat and accidentally knocked the throttle into gear throwing someone off the boat and a couple people fell down.

Anyway this caused me to notice if I hit the throttle suddenly it could go into gear without the button on top pressed down. It does take some force but not so much that it couldn't happen accidentally like this time.

I have a 2012 VLX... is this typical for the throttle or should I have it looked at?

Doesn't happen on any of the 2012's I have driven although I have not really tested it like that but yes you should have that looked at... That is not normal and a Safety concern...

Didn't the safety lanyard kill the motor as soon as there was no driver in the driver's seat?
