Disconnected Throttle Linkage

Recommended Posts

saburkhart

The wife and I were out getting some time on the water the other night. I was boarding and after one of my many, many, many falls the boat would not accellerate. I of course jumped in the boat to see what was going on, and after checking a few things found that the throttle linkage became disconnected from the throttlebody. I have the monsoon 325 (01) with perfect pass installed. I don't know how it should be reconnected. It looks as though the perfect pass and the throttle cable connect together? Any know what I should do? I tried to go to the dealership, but all the new motors have different linkage setup so don't know if they're the same.

I think this is what you have on your motor. I'm not sure where it came loose.

that's exactly it! thanks. The brass nut and nut behind it came off on mine. The brass nut came off and isn't threaded on both ends so I didn't know if I was missing some pieces. From your picture it looks like I have everything I'll just have to figure out how to get them all together.

just an update in case anyone is following the thread. the cable from the PP goes into the brass nut. as the cable feeds through the nut it is kept tight by some sort of end on the cable (like a bicycle brake cable). This end is what I lost. it made both the throttle and pp useless. i had to sit by the motor and control speed by moving the butterfly on the intake. Anyway I've emailed PP for a replacement hopefully they'll respond soon. I'm just glad this wasn't in the middle of a week vacation.
