Throttle pedal position fix, FREE!
Well I have had the new Teryx for a week now and of course, LET THE MODS BEGINE! LOL Anyway I see now what you guy's mean by the throttle sucks on these things and you alway's seem to have to hold your foot up to keep from giving it throttle. Well it is actually a simple fix. They use too light of a throttle return spring. Remove the return spring, clamp 1 end in a vise and grab the other end with a small pair of locking pliers and stretch it out enough to get a 1/32 cutting wheel at an angle and cut 6 coils out of the spring. Grab the first coil where you cut it off with your locking pliers again, and stretch it out enough to get a pair of needle nose pliers behind the first coil at the same location as the bend in the last coil that is locked in the vise. take a pen torch and heat it up where you have the needle nose and bend it outward to resemble the same bend that you cut off. Oncle you have the bend, grind the wire straight where you cut it at an angle so it isn't sharp.Let it cool down, shoot some grey or black cheap paint on the spring so it doesn't rust and re install. PRESTO!
You may want to start by removing less coils to suit the best feel for you. I started with 3 coils, better but not enough. Now I can lay the weight of my foot on the throttle pedal but it does not move and my foot doesn't bounce off the throttle in rough terain, I have to push it. If feels like my Tahoe now. Good luck if anyone wants to do this mod or let me know if you need more info. Later...
