It's easy ! Disconnect the electrical connector , un bolt it .
Notice: Handle the electronic throttle control components carefully. Use cleanliness in order to prevent damage. Do not drop the electronic throttle control components. Do not roughly handle the electronic throttle control components. Do not immerse the electronic throttle control components in cleaning solvents of any type.
Remove the connector position assurance (CPA) retainer. Disconnect the accelerator pedal position (APP) sensor electrical connector. Reposition the carpet to access the lower nut.
Remove the accelerator pedal nuts. Remove the accelerator pedal assembly.
You need to remove the "key assembly" before removing the handle. The key assembly is the lid, handle and diverter which all come out in one piece after taking the bolts out around the lid.
Once the assembly has been removed, you need to compress the lid down toward the diverter to allow the handle to move freely. At that point the handle pin, which connects the handle to the diverter may be removed. Note the position of the handle's pointer and the open slot on the diverter. When reassembling it is important that they are in the same position. If not careful the handle will be 180 degrees off.
Its a good idea to go ahead and change out the diverter o-rings and bearing on top of the lid (that the handle slides upon while turning) while you have it open.
Front brake light switch is in your right handle control assembly. couple little allen wrenchs, small snap ring pliers and a small straight slot screw driver is all you need. Take the front brake lever off, take out screws and open housing, the throttle cable and return has two little clips, be careful not to lose them.. you will see the switch inside, looks like a little black button with a rubber boot over it. take the clip off and pop it out, might need to take the handle bars off to get to the wiring harness for the switch. pop it back in and reassemble....
Remove the air cleaner and watch the throttle arm on the carburetor while operating the throttle trigger--suspect that the trigger assembly has acquired sawdust and dirt sufficient to limit proper travel of the trigger mechanism. Careful notes as you dis-assemble the trigger will help get it back together properly. There is little except proper maintenance to prevent debris accumulation in the trigger mechanism. Note: air leakage behind the carburetor can also cause high idle speeds--make sure the carburetor is fastened securely and that there are no flaws in the gaskets and heat insulator located behind the carburetor. Hope this helps!
Here is an opportunity for the Mantis Company to do the right thing.The design flaw with their tiller is the plastic throttle handle.If the tiller is bumped or banged against the deliberately poor designed part and it breaks you are forced to buy the entire poorly designed assembly ($45.00) so they can earn greater revenue.Designing something to fail goes way beyond the design redundancy mode of most companies these days.They are therefore a leader in the mediocrity field.Not the list I would want to shoot for.They should sell just the part that failed due to the poor design.I realize this would cut into their revenue.Don't they think that I will think twice about buying another Mantis product given the stupidity of their design staff?I am glad that the Mantis customer service person took so much enjoyment in the failure of their product and the admitted frequency with which this issue occurs and the problem it has caused their customers.Sounds like poor design is not the only problem Mantis has within their company.My suggestion - Buy a product from a company other than Mantis.
