definitely make a throttle stop of some sort.. I would suggest if there is room, go to your local hardware store and find something that you can place around the throttle cable on the 'pull' side. It might be possible to adjust the throttle as loose as possible on the pull side and then adjust the slack on the push side, effectively making it impossible to open the throttle more than half way. Hope this helps!

One thing is for sure, tell her that she is riding a BIG bike now and no more of that 'pull power throttle' stuff that she had to do on the Ninja.

The biggest thing I had to learn coming from a Ninja250 to the VFR800 is the fact that the Ninja liked to be revved high and didn't do anything below 8000 rpm. You got on and went full throttle.

The VFR is a modest lady compared to the 750 and most likely much more forgiving so tell her that anything she did on the Ninja, do it only to a 4th on the 750, including the throttle and braking action.

I'd start her out like she was just learning to ride all over again. Parking lot, neighborhood and slowly back out on the street. Have her learn the clutch and friction zone perfectly on the new bike before even letting her back on the street.

Teach her to ride a gear up. That will keep the rpms low and the torque down until she gets a feel for what the bike can do.
