    Mps hand control users help please

    I have mechanical MPS monarch right angle hand controls and am c5/6 quad . The acceleration part is pretty stiff when I operate it. Is there a way to make it looser and easier to push ? The place that installed it isn't too helpful and said no but I don't believe them because they told me they couldn't adjust the rod for the brakes but I figured it out myself with my mechanic and was able to adjust it. Any suggestions is appreciated!

    I'm a SureGrip push/rock user, so not really knowledgable, but when I had mechanical version(I'm on by wire now), it too took way too much effort to hold the gas open. I knew there had to be a way to change tension on its internal return spring, and had the install place get ahold of SG to find out how to release some tension. It was fairly easy and they had it done in about 1/2 hour, and it was perfect then.

    I would assume the MPS would have the same kind of adjustability in their spring setup too. Their website doesn't give any help, probably some liability b.s., maybe you could try calling them just to ask if it's possible, they sure won't tell you how to do it, more liability issue.

      Agreed, MPS wont tell you any more than consult with your local 'specialist installer'. However, if SlothicusPrime explains his predicament and the lack of service from one of their distributor/installers, they should be more than helpful.

    SlothicusPrime, are you getting full throttle range? Can you put up an image showing where the rod is secured on the MPS actuator arm? And an image of the clamp position on the accelerator lever, maybe too close to the fulcrum? Somehow, the throttle rod angle is too acute?
    If the installer is so obstructive and unhelpful, make a verbal and written complaint direct to MPS themselves, speak with Carly, ask to speak with someone from production.. They have an 0800 number. Don't forget to put your complaint in writing/email to the installer agency as well as MPS - it is harder to sweep under the carpet as phone calls can be. You paid hard dollars for a correct installation, don't let them screw you over.
    Let us now the written response from both.

      I'm not too fond of the MPS controls, although one of my vans have them. First, make sure all the pivot joints are lubricated. Check to make sure nothing is binding. If you can move the throttle shaft connection down towards the bottom of the pedal, or increase the length of the control handle it'll give you more leverage, hence less effort.
