Throtle tension

I have an 06 LT and wonder if it is possible to decrease the tension on the throttle. The "ol" arthritis in the thumbs and hands are calling out for some help. I have the "Universal Throttle Boss" which helps, but in addition would like to lessen the throttle pressure a little. Les

Re: Throtle tension

Try a set of these:

I have a set of these on mine. The shipping was super fast. Installation..well a liberal in a hybrid towing a bicycle could install it in 2 minutes....well maybe 3-4 for them.

Any way..other than "be alert" using them in a real twisty tight turn road situation, they are GREAT !!!.

Really ..on and off in 10 seconds.

Good luck
