Throttle not engaging 100% of the time going into foward

Recommended Posts


My throttle occasionally does not go into idle right away. This could become a problem when docking at my launch, since it is tight. It works most of the time. 2013 VTX. Any suggestions?

The problem is likely in you ski throttle.  I had mine rebuilt twice. The position sensor is shot.  Its an easy rebuild but Livorsi won't sell you the parts but they do provide a rebuild service.  Of course it's possible it could be elsewhere down the line.

Thanks. So the only solution is to bring it in to be worked on? I will get an appointment.

I heard Malibu has a replacement for those older throttles now. Might want to check with your dealer to make sure.
