    Sticking throttle?!?

    It's kinda funny now because I took the one off my wife's sled a few weeks ago and threw it out. Then by brother in law and my dad have been bugging her saying they will sell theirs to her.
    Hmmm now they are all in the garbage and at least we can laugh about it!!

    Hope he has a speedy recovery!

    I've seen more sleds in the trees with those lefty thottles than I've seen people who use them on purpose?

    a bunch of years back there was a dude in clemina parking lot (I think it was) that was loading into an enclosed and grabbed the lefty instead of the brake. it was ugly, he was messed up bad

    Again in 08 (first ride of my new 09) in the clemina parking lot we were parked next to a guy who was loading on an open trailer, he didn't have the pin in though he was grabbing break but pinned it. Launched it over the trailer and into the tailgate, but a big dent in that, rolled off the side of the trailer and almost smashed into my brothers truck but missed it by inches.

    They are the most dangerous add on you can put on a sled. Bar none. Sorry to hear about your Dad Devon. Hope he is feeling better.

    Well.. I took the xp for the first ride today since the rebuild and it took me for a ride. Must have a fray in the throttle cable I am gonna change it out and run er on the chain hoist next time!
    What causes this to happen. The sled doesn't even have 1200km on it. Or is it just one of those freak incidents. I put more km a year than that on my sleds and have never had an issue.

    Hmmm now that I think about it more might be a carb because the cable itself was springing back. I had to flip it a few times before it would idle back down ?

    Its not uncommon for the cable to fray on those models. Usually down by the oil pump. It could be a carb issue but I'd look down low first. Ugly job to replace those. Some shops have charged as much as 4 hours I've heard. You will need to get a dealer to reset the TPS as well when you replace it.
