I can't remember without looking at it but I do remember I had to turn mine over 1/4" to get to 1/8" freeplay at the pedal end of the cable so just turn it in the counterclockwise direction but alot farther this time. If it gets more slack in the cable turn it the other way instead. It made quite a difference on my RZR.

Re: Throttle freeplay adjustment

Just did mine. Counterclockwise is more play, clockwise is less. As you turn it clockwise when you get to a certain point you will feel the throttle pick up or just watch your rpm's if your hard at hearing.

One thing I noticed after I adjusted mine.....I've never heard the rev limiter before!!!
Should I leave it like this or back it down a little. I have almost no play now in my throttle ped. Then again 1/16" ain't much.

It is supposed to be 1/16" - 1/8" so you're good, but if you want a little more free play then add a little but don't over do it, you'll not be getting full throttle if you do!

Re: Throttle freeplay adjustment

This is really tickin me off. I'll set me throttle freeplay to almost nothing and by the time I slide that boot back over and put my seats back in and go to drive it,it's completely back to where I started.....too much play and bouncy as hell. Am I doing something wrong? Should I maybe look into one of those springs?
