Those are nice and all but Rifleman's is much cheaper and I've been using it for years with no problem. Easy enough to install too.I have a Kawasaki KIT 60* quick throttle, 1/5 turn. Its awesome, comes with new cables that are adjustable on BOTH ends, new throttle reel, and housing.
Different strokes for different folks - I bought my KIT throttle from a guy who used his as primarily a street bike.with occasional track duty, and sold it because he said it was too sensitive. Me personally, I think its perfect, I would even consider a even quicker throttle.Those are nice and all but Rifleman's is much cheaper and I've been using it for years with no problem.

I apologize, I said 60* then said 1/5, sorry. It is indeed 1/6 turn, I guess that's what I get for typing from my phone on a rush.Yes, the KIT 60 is actually 1/6th of a turn, it needs the additional parts to fit up properly, the OEM cables aren't long enough to get the necessary slack. I'm not sure but I think you need a larger grip housing as well. That is why those kits are more expensive. (a few hundred dollars for all the parts)
I would also put it in the "track only" catagory for most riders, it's twichy and takes time to get used to.
the 1/5th was designed with a few considerations in mind.
1. Use all the OEM parts, nothing else to buy.
2. reduce the throw to what most people can do in a single grip.
3. be reversable.
the 1/5th fits all those criteria.
Absolutely, I agree. I actually bought your product originally and, to be honest, if I hadn't gotten the KILLER deal I did on this KIT throttle, I would've never bought it. Being a mechanically knowledgable person I have always had a hard time paying for something I know I could do cheaper - IE refusing to spend hundreds of dollars on a KIT throttle.it's a good thing that both are available.
Yeah I linked the MP revolver kit. How do you like it? Does it replace the entire cable or just half length?Let me say that Riflemans insert was awesome. Cost vs performance gain was great. The Kit throttle is great but when you piece everything together pricey. I bought and have been using the Motion Pro Revolver Kit
It comes with different size reels to fit all types of riders. Since mines a track bike I've been using the 50mm reel which essentially makes it a 1/7 turn throttle. It takes a bit of getting used to but once you do you'll never want to go back. I wrote a little write up a while back:
