    I have a new Fastrak 2052 w/ Honda engine. I've only played with it so far, ( less than 2 hrs. run time ) , but I noticed the throttle seems unresponsive. The bottom 1/3 travel on the throttle lever does not increase engine rpm. Is this correct or might there be a problem?

    I don't think that is a problem.
    Does the engine sound like it is running at full speed when the throttle is all the way up?
    I would have your dealer double check it just in case.

    "Sound like" full throttle, yes, but then what does full throttle sound like?? I am going in a few days to pick up the hour meter I odrered and I'll ask at the dealer when I am there. Thanks, JP.

    I've got the 20/52 Fastrak and that throttle issue sounds normal to me. These machines need to run wide open so there is no need for a fine throttle adjustment at low rpm.
