Correspondingly, how do you adjust the throttle cable on a Suzuki outboard?
Re: Suzuki Throttle Cable Adjustment Get a helper to push the throttle lever forward all the way and open the motor side up by hand, then tighten down the adjustment screw, then return it to neutral and make sure the throttle on the motor has relaxed all the way down to its resting position.
Additionally, how do you lubricate a boat throttle cable? Pour enough motor oil into the bag to fully submerge the end of the cable jacket and zip the bag closed. Place a container beneath the bottom end of the cable to catch the oil that should eventually drip out of the lower end of the jacket. Allow the cable to hang until the oil drains through.
Hereof, why is my boat throttle so stiff?
If there is a shifter issue in the motor, the throttle will have problems in the first half of its movement but not at the top since the shifter cable only moves when engaging gears. 90% or more of the time, stiff throttle controls are related to bad cables. If you need to replace one cable, change both.
How do you measure a boat throttle cable?
Measure from control along unobstructed cable routing to center of outboard. Add four feet to allow for loop which provides unrestricted engine move ment. Round up to next whole foot and order required cable part number. (Last two digits of cable part number equal cable length in feet.)
