Still getting familiar with my I-30 having come from an I-28 with an Atomic 4. During my first season with it (last year), I noticed that both the throttle and gear controls were very stiff. Furthermore, I could never get the throttle to stay put in full throttle mode, so I had to keep my hand on it or the speed would keep dropping off. Today I did some exploring and discovered the clamps that are attached to the control cables. I loosened the throttle one and the good news is that the throttle arm moves much more easily. The bad news is that it pretty much moves to the center position almost immediately. On my I-28, wherever I moved my throttle, that's where it stayed. Is the I-30 set up designed this way on purpose? Do others have the same issue with their Yanmar? Is there a workaround?
