Is there an easy way to make the throttle go full blast faster? Want it more sensitive
Sorry, less sensitive
Not quite understanding this, if you want the throttle to be less sensitive adjust the thumb screw a bit this will add friction, but not too much or it may stick
Sorry, hard to explain. I want to get full throttle after 1/2 turn of the grip, now its more like 2 turns:/
Your throttle should be 1/2 to 2/3 turn from idle to WOT. Have you taken the housing apart to make wure the cable is running in the groove of the throttle drum?
Throttle sleeve slipping?
I have a set of 1/4 turn grips-- if you want full throttle real fast these are the ones for you -- they have never been installed and are in the original package- if your interested send me a pm ---
No, but that sounds like an possible fix
No, that's not the problem ty
Sorry, was the grip sliping, just when I test it I grip with 5 fingers, when I ride 3... Problem solved. But still a 1/4 must be better
Glad you found your problem. The 1/4 turn throttle is going to be very touchy when you ride. Any bumps in the road or anytime you enter a turn your throttle will be very quick to respond. This type throttle is generally used in racing situations.
Just how I like it And also the fingers on the brake lever stops most unwanted turning of the throttle due to bumps and stuff.
