  • throttle throw??

    maybe its just me.... but from my normal hand position on the throttle, I cannot roll the throttle wide open without craning my arm downward. My old honda I could just snap my wrist to wide-open-throttle. Is throttle geometry/degrees of rotation to WOT something that can be adjusted, or just get used to it.

    If there is no free play in your cables from no throttle until it picks up you'll have to live with it

      Or, go buy a 1/8 turn throttle.. Motion pro makes them and so do some other companies.. You would have to come up with some new "start" button type device though...

          yeah i've noticed the samething...adjust your grip, you can get WOT and WCT with one twist, its just not an intuitive hand posistion.

                            its under product reviews at gixxer.com. first one, 1/5 turn throttle. apparently there are 2 products, one you have to mod a bit, the other is the R6 race kit tube.
                            sorry, dont know how to linky
