I bought a 2008 KTM 450 XC-F, and while I love the power and torque, it was almost too much for tighter trails and slippery situations. But in Arizona, you have to have the power because there is also so much sand riding. The 300 cam proved to be the perfect complement for that bike, and it didn’t take anything away from my ability to take the bike to tha track and ride motocross where the traction IS good, either. I’ll have one of these on every carbureted bike I own now, no kidding.
I’ve never had any real trouble with my ST1300′s throttle response but, it is very sensitive and, if I have a momentary lapse of concentration while in 1st or 2nd gear, the throttle can be a bit abrupt.
After installing the G2 Tamer Throttle Tube, however, I literally cannot make my throttle mess up. This might sound a little corney but, it has REALLY helped “tame” that sensitive throttle response that I would sometimes get if I forgot to slip the clutch a bit. It’s a keeper in my farkle collection for this and any other bike I get.
The G2 Quick turn Throttle tube cam system for the KTM RFS works good But I want to go to a faster openning cam I mite give the 25 cam a try next time around I enjoy the harder hitting throttle responce I getting with the G2 throttle.

I received the throttle cam for my FJR1300, and it more than I expected.A really great product! I will pass this info on to all my friends that can benefit from which is just about all of them.Thanks again for A great product.
Top stuff Very easy roll on without over twisting cruse is still perfect i feel that the biggest improvement is from just off 1/4 to 3/4 throttle what was a big twist out of corners is now an easy roll on . I feel it stops you riding ya bike to lean. With the super comfy grips a full twist is still a bit of a turn BUT who rides full twist all the time i feel this product is one of the best add on parts i fitted to my bike 2008 Fatboy top job by g2 i have been riding and playing with HARLEYS for many years only if i found this product earlier the grips are of first class and show spec chrome THANK YOU G2 DENNIS from down under AUSTRALIA.
Thanks very much for an excellent product. I must say that this mod is the best (and one of the cheapest) that I’ve made to the FJR. It made the low end throttle roll MUCH more predictable (as advertised). An additional benefit that I didn’t see mentioned is that the effort to turn the throttle is greatly reduced. It now compares favorably with the throttle effort of the new Concours 14. I can finally shift this beast smoothly. Also, it is beautifully made. Thanks again.
Hey guy’s I just want to let you know that the throttle cam that I bought from you over the summer made my FJR so much smoother off of idle that it feels like a new bike! I’ve owned many bikes in my years and I thought that I would have to get a power commander and re-map or something expensive ,or just get a different bike altogether to smooth things out. But you provided a very nice fix to the issue that I had and it was a no brainer to install. I’ve been meaning to thank you all summer but have been too busy riding.
Hello again, Finally i received the correct tube with 2 different cams. The 400 & 500. Actually, i excepted plus the stock 100 cam. Anyway, i have already install it and use the 500 cam for the moment, as you suggested. Some feedback so far: Only commute use of the bike. No fast rides or track days. Very nice kit, near excellent construction, design and quality. Seems that it will last for ever. Especially if the Derlin and aluminum cam pieces will stay as new. Fitment is straightforward, easy and secure. The overall performance is as excepted. Veeeeeery smooth on any twist, very easy and light, no grabs, no resistance. I have to recalibrate my brain about throttle use and feel. With 500 cam the Ducati 998, from a near “hell” piece of commute bike, transformed to a red city pussy cat, always ready to show her nasty nails on demand. Acceleration from idle is a brand new experience. Better up & downshifts plus better & much more controlled DECELERATION!!!!! The bike feels 10 Kg lighter! I think better overall throttle control. As a Keith Code’s “California Superbike School” graduate, i appreciate the G2 support to master THROTTLE CONTROL under any circumstances. Maybe you have to talk to these guys. They do the perfect job all over the world and i believe that your product have much to offer. I have sent the previous tube to the address in Italy. Thanks Sam & Gary. Thanks G2. You are here, on every “Twist of the Wrist”! Best regards
Installed your G2 throttle tamer on my Yamana V star 1300 and after about 200 miles I can really appreciate the differance, especially when in stop and go traffic and moving along in first gear. Great Customer support and a really fine product.
Rick from Rockford is very pleased with your throttle tamer on my 07 tiger. Thanks Gary.
