  • Shorter throttle twist?

    Hey guys, Just got back from Superbike races in Birmingham. Nice to see some TL's out there.... As I was running the back roads on the way up I noticed to get full throttle I really had to twist my wrist to almost my physical limit. Is there a replacement that makes the throttle twist shorter? I have to get a very aggresive grip on the throttle to get WOT.

    I have heard of a 1/4 twist set up, but don't know much else about it.

        The factory throttles are 1/4 turn, but years back they weren't, so an aftermarket 1/4 turn throttle was a popular addition to a racebike. There is a 1/5 turn available now though, and a while back I saw someone here had a mod to make your own...not sure who that was though.

        Good luck...

          Thanks guys... Next time I am turning wrenches i am going to check both ends of the cables to see if there is any room for improvements. It seems like a long time ago I saw an aftermarket set-up that the barrel the cable twist around got thicker as the throttle twisted to give more pull on the cable.

              Not sure what to call it. I guess it would be the difference between twisting a cable around paper towel tube vs the shape of an egg end to end or maybe the lobe on a cam. Following me?

                  some where I have seen a post on this but cannot remember where anyway supposidly the r6 race kit throttle from Yamaha can be used to replace just the plastic throttle part also some one makes a plastic piece that looks a bit like a horse collar to increase the diameter where the cables ride to give a shorter turn on the throttle. Apparently the Yamaha part is about $25.00

                          Does that 1/5 make it harder to make small adjustment to the throttle mid corner or other similar situations. Also, where is the throttle sensor? Since you are opening it up at a quicker ratio would you need to remap?

                            No remap needed.. I double check the TPS though. (It's down by the throttle bodies.)

                            If it opens quicker, yes you are going to have to be MORE sensitive when opening it up in corner.

                              When I was swaping in my new motor I went and adjusted the cabels a bit to shorten the throw. Probably not as much as a 1/5 turn but did tighten the throttle up considerably over stock. The throttle feels a bit more on/off now then it used to.
