    Throttle Cable Tension Question

    I just installed a Worx steering system on my Spark, tried it out yesterday and I love it !!!
    Question: With only one small return spring on the actuator the tension on the finger throttle is way too light for me and I was wondering what guys are doing to alleviate this ? ?

    Any solid remedies out there would be greatly appreciated.

    You could cut a couple coils out. Remember no way back just a few at a time until your happy or just buy a new spring

    I found it so light that the second finger of my race gloves could actually catch the edge of the finger throttle at times and not close it off, way too light for a buoy course !

    Mine is the one of the new WORX units that just came out two weeks ago and the throttle cable routing is very smooth and the fact that I don't have the stock finger throttle spring any more just the actuator spring makes it very light. I remember some people were using an "O" ring or a second spring but I could not find the thread ...

    There all the same . crisp has a O ring on his but that is so it flicks back to idle . mine is also super smooth.

    I use a small spring wound into the cable between the stop and the throttle actuator

    Went to the hardware store, got some springs and cut down a rubber shouldered plug to centre the spring up top and it works great !!! Thanks for the pics and your help Mark !!!
