Quick turn throttle

Postby RB. » Mon Nov 14, 2011 7:45 pm

anyone know of a quick turn throttle for our bikes? or if maybe a zx10 or zx6 throttle tube will fit on ours or anything that can accomplish a quick turn throttle
other than super glueing a zip tie under the throttle cable thing.

Haven't tried the ZX-10, but the 05/06 throttle tube is the same as the EX650R. I've done the zip tie with no problems. My 650R is now running a slice of PVC wrapped around the stock portion. The PVC is easier to custom shape than the ziptie. You can see the cam I shaped into the cable pick-up portion. You can't see it in this pic, but the last thing I did was put a shallow groove around the circumference for the cable to ride in.

so are you saying the throttle tube is the same as in smae exact so putting the 05/06 on there wont make it a shorter turn?

Yup.

Same tubes. Same diameter, same roundness, same color, same ABS, same manufacturer, same something else I'm forgetting.

In fact, the tube you see in the picture is from a 2005 ZX636. It should look the same.

There is a thread on here somewhere regarding a quick throttle bulk buy, not sure if Gary has any left or if the buy was a flop.
