Talking Quick throttle

Has anyone heard of or know where to get a throttle grip with a larger cam or a smaller cam to mount on the butterfly shaft to speed up the rate of opening of the throttle? It seems like the throttle takes a half turn or more to go from closed to open...............not that I ever open it up..........but just in case I was in a hurry.............you know............Jdunique

Thumbs up Throttle Rocker

Don't knock one until you try one. You have to give it a little time, so don't make a quick decision. Leave it on for a few days, and I'll bet you won't take it off. Both of my bikes have one...and every bike I'll own in the future will have one too.

Buy it from Raffy HERE. (Scroll down to the bottom of that page.) The best $9 (+ shipping) you'll ever spend.

Throttle rocker

Joe
Thanks for the suggestion and I do know about using one of these and have like one on all of my bikes. I have used them for several years on just about every kind of bike but in this case would like to speed up the throttle kind of like the 1/4 turn throttles I used to use. I looked everywhere I could think of and I dont see any thing available I guess I will probably have to fabricate a new pulley for the throttle shaft.
Thanks again
