Throttle

I just currently bought a 2007 prowler 1000 and the throttle is super jumpy/touchy to where itís hard to control when trying to ease out of a dead stop Iím hoping you guys can help me out in a way I can adjust it for a more subtle take off? I have a 11 year old who wants to drive it and the way it jumps is a little much
Thanks guys

Try to find this throttle pedal spring, its softer than the 700 and 1000's. RD can second this... part #0405-233 is the lighter (650) spring to use.

'09 650XT H1, 72" Eagle Plow, Warn 3500 Winch. Dyna CDI box, UNI filters, A/C V-bag and console, EPI lift kit, Highlifter springs, Scat ProCar suspension seats. Rick the Rockets A frame and shock bushings. 28x12X14 Raceline Bruisers on Vision rims, on all corners. Cowling heat vents. Factory heat and defrost. RD's custom alternator kit. XTZ hood scoop and front shocks. Monster shock covers, turn signals. OEM glass sport windshield, sliding rear window, and hardtop.

The throttle is my biggest complaint with the XTZ also. The reviews of the Throttlemax product are pretty good too.

I'm getting used to it, but still have some jerky take offs. On the trails it's not a big deal but in tight technical stuff it's frustrating. Also as it is, I wouldn't and don't want to plow or move trailers around with it.

FYI The 1000 or XTZ model came out in 2009. If yours is a 2007 it's a 650, only option that year.

I love the ThrottleMaxx product! I'm going to contact them too see if they have any Prowler setups left on their shelves!
