      I've never felt a need for one in my street use. Is this something alot of track riders find useful?

          Rolling that throttle is half the fun! Why take it away?
          Let's go riding!

            come guys ,..the kat is the slowest -600 made with a pipe they sound fine and hardy with this my 600 will be a bit better on the respone , it should open up like a kat over a fence . this might be better then getting into the carbs . bone stock other wise

              or you could have the problems that so many people have with CV carbs and why they go with a race carb...
              The hand motion is/butterfly action is to fast and faster then the vacuum slides can react/operate and the bike actually hesitates and costs you HP.
              thats why the tell you you need to use smoother throttle control...

              sorry bro they are a gimmick

                Has anyone tried this? I know the track bikes usually use at least a 1/4 ratio. If I had already done more to my bike it would be something I would try.

                  I would imagine that they would be the bee's knees for anybody with a wrist injury or who finds their wrist rotation uncomfortable at their typical cruising speed... Other than that, I don't see a lot of benefit here -- more rotational movement = easier time with fine throttle control, esp. on a road-bike with CV carbs...

                    I've thought about this 100 times but never actually thought about changing it. Great thread.

                      im getting one, i know on my three svs i have put r6 throttle tubes which are a 1/4 turn less so your wrist doesnt hurt on touring and a little more responce of the line. package that with a crampbuster and your good.

                      price i may also be intrested in clear clutch cover for a 2nd gen svs if your able to, i know many have tried with issues of oil filler neck location

                        It's all a gimmick. You can think it improves throttle response if you want.

                        And btw, a few minutes and some zipties will get you the same thing for under $10. 90% of people I know that have put a qucik turn throttle on have taken it back off as it is not precise enough for street use.
                        90% of motorcycle forum members do not have a service manual for their bike.

                          how can i do it with zip ties? is it pretty much just a spacer there selling that arouond stock throttle tube? If so then i guess ya you could easly make it your self, youd just have to adjust throttle cables to fit over the spacer.
