'98 Sportster Broken Throttle

Recommended Posts

Good Morning - we were out for our Wed night ski; 1st skier in the water, "hit it", boat goes in to gear but stays at idle.  just wanted to post this so others were aware of the failure point. I believe this is a Morse throttle. There's a brass piece threaded on to the throttle cable that hooks to the throttle handle with a cotter pin. The piece sheared off. It's a 5 minute fix if you carried a spare. Might be worth taking a peek at yours and maybe hitting it with grease yearly. Glad we were not starting our vacation next week when this busted!
