1/4 turn throttle

repost? I searched and didnt see anything.

Anyway, does anyone have any experience with reducing a throttles twist? Ive heard of 1/4 turn and even 1/5 turn throttles.

If you're not drag racing (only) you're going to find yourself with more problems than solutions using it on the street. I had one on my bike and had it removed soon after because it was useless for me on the street.

Now drag racing...

I've used it on some race bikes.
Your GSXR1000 doesn't really need it, it's already pretty throttle sensitive as it is.

I have one on my ZX-14. I put it on originally because I had injured my wrist and it was difficult for me to turn the throttle all the way. I've since healed and have gotten used to the shorter turn on the throttle. I think it teaches you to be smooth with the throttle. :laughing6 Most riding around town is like millimeters of throttle travel.

Thats what I needed to know. I figured that the use on the street might be too sensitive.

Yeah, the Gixxer throttle is pretty sensitive, I just dont like how much travel there is, but then again, I dont have the occasion to go WOT too much anyway

Thanks guys!
