Hand throttle won't hold position

Postby tomrice4k » Thu Jul 23, 2020 3:18 pm

The hand throttle on my YM226D will not hold position. I set the throttle where I want it and it eventually moves back and drops the RPM. Is there a way to adjust the tension on the throttle mechanism so it holds position?

Make sure all the parts shown are intact on yours. If so, you can loosen off the outer double nut (17) and then tighten the inner until adequate friction is applied to hold the handle as set. Then tighten the outer locknut.

Just had this exact problem. Friction washer (#5) was missing. Ordered it for $2.82 and fixed her right up. Also make sure you have the conical washer (#1). All this is very easily accessible if you remove the front panel, at least on mine. Yours may be a little different. Good luck
