    Help with adjustment to thumb throttle
    Posted by safari90lc on Tuesday, October 06, 2009 1:25 PM
    I hope someone can help out with this question? I have a 1990 safari lc, it has no manual and cannot find info on it anywhere. The thumb throttle has about a half inch of play in it, how do I adjust this out properly? I understand the sled is comparable to a formula mx, single carb, oil injected, liquid cooled 467cc. I would also like to know where I can obtain some type of manual for this sled. The basic skidoo manual for this year, does not include single carburation.

    First, make sure the cable end is correctly seated in the thumb lever. There will be either an adjuster in the single cable between the thumb throttle and the cable divider (where the cable goes from one to two) if the adjuster is present, lengthen the cable until you have about 1/8" play. If there is no adjuster in the cable, the adjustment is made where the cable enters the carb top. Look for a threaded adjuster with a lock nut.. Make sure the oil pump adjustment is correct after adjusting the carb.
