How to: Switch a R6 throttle tube on a GSXR

http://www.gsxr.com/showthread.php?t=95464

My question is the bike are made specifically to cordinate to each part on the bike will doing this really help the bike or just tweak something else off? If Suzuki knew how much of a gap there was why didnt they make it smaller?

I've heard a lot of R1 guys using the R6 throttle mod. It's a cheap alternative to a quick turn aftermarket like the Domino or the MotionPro.

Domino is an Italian brand. They are on the higher end of the pricing scale. Plus you'll need to know cable lengths and other dimensions. I've looked on their site and they show products for lots of 2 stroke racing bikes and such. I might have overlooked it but I didn't see a fitment guide for R1, GSXR and the like. Motion pro is what I have. They run about $150ish and do the job, just kind of bulky. There are other options as well. Lots of guys on the R1 forum use Robby Moto, looks like an eBay brand but gets good reviews.

I'm looking into trying a Domino as, IMO, they look the best. The R6 throttle is, by design, fairly quick turn unit. They usually cost $40ish from what I've heard.

I did this conversion and it is quick and easy. The throttle tube is about 12 bucks from Patrick at motorcycles unlimited if I remember correctly. The most difficult part of getting the grip off and on. Use and air compressor to make quick work of it.

This definitely helps the rider get to wide open throttle more quickly. It does not break anything else or cause other ill affects.

I did this, then upgraded to a quick turn throttle system.

I think you're giving Suzuki far to much credit.

One thing to consider: some bikes might not have enough slack in the throttle cables for this mod.

What are your riding goals? We can list the "need to do" and "could do" mods.

I already have mods on the bike just looking at the little things. My plan when i get back is mostly going to the track and become better at cornering.

That's what I like to hear!! Track time will definitely improve your riding (not just cornering) overall!!! Hit me up, and I'll help you out anyway I can!

I would recommend this mod to anyone, especially if you ride at the circuit tracks or the drag strip. Instead of the R6 tube, I have a 1/5th throttle insert. It's a custom made piece that a member on the zx-10r.net forum makes and sells for $25.

I'll try to man have like 3 months left of my tour out here. So far on mods i have pc3, sprockets and chain, yoshi exhaust, bmc filter, and Motozen levers. I think im okay at the moment once i get back hit up moto to tune the suspension and maybe do the r6, pair mods.

By all means, go for the R6 tube with the 1/6th turn. The 1/5th is plenty for the ZX-10R

First mod should be SS brake lines up front, better than stock pads, and suspension tune (or upgrade if in the budget). Everything is almost pointless! Learn how to ride a bike faster before making it faster.

Oh trust me i know i've been riding my bike around for a while. Im not the type to make it crazy fast and not be able to handle it. I'm not doing any other upgrades on the bike. I want to become a lot better rider that way i can have a lot more fun at the track. All this researching is only for the benefit of knowing whats out there so if there is something later on that i wanna do i know it can be accomplished.

I've been hearing about this mod for a few years, what year R6 do you get the tube from?

I went 1/4 turn on mine. It wasn't as cheap as the r6 tube though
