    quick question, lately I have noticed that when I have my bobcat at full throttle the throttle lever works itself to back down, not holding the same lever setting. Does anyone have a fix for this or have you come across it before. I think I have seen something about wave washers being bad. But don't remember.

    you can try tightening the 2 tension screws (3/16 allen)
    if that doesnt help, replace the fiber washer and the 3 spring washers.
