Mobius LSV 2007: my throttle is very hard to move from or through neutral position, needs almost two hands....

When transmission is not engaged, moves easily.:o

I had the same issue at 650 hrs, I replaced the throttle cable and now it is fine. To check if this is the fix disconnect the tranny cable at the the transmission and move the throttle from forward to reverse with the gear engaged, if it is still stiff you need to replace the throttle cable.

The '07 LSV is drive by wire, no cable. I'd look at the throttle assembly itself.

Thanks a lot, yesterday I checked, disconnected the wire, the transmission shitfs very smoothly :D. So either the wire or the throttle assembly, the second being very stiff...

Any one has the quotation for a throttle assembly for a Mobius LSV 07 ?

You can also add some grease to the plates in the throttle assembly and work it back and forth. I ride in salt and this is part of my annual maintenance.

thanks DEEPCOVE, I run in salty water as well, do you remove the assembly or simply ''spray'' it?

I do not remove the assembly, I manually put grease on with my finger and move the throttle in different positions to work it back and forth.
