1/4 turn throttles
« on: January 16, 2005, 08:17:34 am »
1/4 turn throttle
Who is using a 1/4 turn throttle? I have wrist problems so was wondering if the 1/4 turn throttles really reduce the twist alot or minimal. Do they work well? Also heard I could modify stock throttle assembly. Has anyone done this, is it safe? Thanks for feedback.

R6 comes with 1/4 turn throttle. The older gen R6 you could replace throttle tube form R1 to achive a 1/5 turn aprox throttle.

What also works is to partially fill the grove of throttle tube with tape or other material and that will give you less throttle range problem is if you are not even with tape then throttle reponse will not be smooth.

Didn't we cover this?

Yeah, like a door knob.  Not so much trying to do it with your forearm, but with the twist in your radius and ulna.

Mike,

Give KC @ BRGracing.com a call.  He'll know what you can do for an R6.  He makes them for Suzuki's and they work very well.
