Description

The G2 Dirt  Tamer Throttle Tube incorporates a non-linear ratio between hand throttle rotation and carburetor or throttle body opening.  The “pulley”, or as we call it, “cam” pulls the throttle cable as the rider rotates the grip/tube.  By altering the conventional, circular shaped cam, a vast improvement in control is achieved.  For most models the Throttle Tamer includes a 400 style cam profile, but some will have alternative cam profiles.  The cam proven to be the best all-round solution for each model is used.

The G2 Dirt  Tamer Throttle Tube has a cam with a reduced radius initially, which requires a slightly farther rotation to achieve the same carburetor or throttle body opening position as a stock throttle.  This slightly longer pull makes a HUGE difference in control as the power is rolled on and the rider searches for traction.  The radius increases or “ramps up” after ½ throttle to keep overall rotation requires to reach full throttle at or near stock rotation.

G2 cams are interchangeable!  You are never “stuck” with a ratio that is not correct for your skill or track condition!  You can always go back to the stock ratio, quicker, or for most models several different progressive control ratios!  Cams may be ordered separately here, or consider the G2 Throttle Cam System that includes a tube and three cams – 100 (stock), 200 (10% smaller & progressive) and 400 (20% smaller & progressive).

    Performed EXACTLY Like Advertised – Great Customer Service Too! I actually had my KLX450R up for sale to downsize to a 250 due to the abrupt throttle response in the tight stuff as well as tired hands and arms. The G2 Dirt Tamer totally smoothed out the “hit” making my bike much more controllable, able to maintain traction and a pleasure to ride. Super fast shipping and fantastic customer service too. I highly recommend G2.

    Excellent! My feelings on it are pretty positive. I currently have the 300 cam on it and I am thinking I wont even try the 400 for a while. My bike is a 2011, so no “snatchy” throttle like earlier models. I did have about 3000 miles of off road with the bike prior to install and now have about 200 after.

    Pro- it does help a bit for the off idle creeping. Here again it was not excessive prior to install. where it shines is standing riding (which I do a lot of) in the rough stuff, if I am being beat around and twitching the throttle a bit-its not getting herky-jerky.

    Con- really not any “cons” it does take a little getting used to when on gravel roads and doing a lot of twisting in and out of the turns. Gives it more of a abrupt power band feeling (which is fine). I assume it is due to the cam design pulling more cable after a 1/3 turn or so.

    Fit- was really really nice ! I owned a fab shop so I am a little picky on fit and finish- these guys got their act together ! excellent workmanship – I mean EXCELLENT !

    Would I recommend it to others – Yes , but like cool aid flavors (ie: motorcycle brands/oil/tires) every one can make their own decision based on their own experience, I am just stating my experience and satisfaction with the product.

    We ride year round, mostly dirt and adventure dual sport riding between Nevada-Colorado and I like to promote good products.

    I trail ride in the mountains of West Virginia and the G2 Throttle Tamer has made a significant difference in controlling my KX450 on tight trails. It took me a couple rides to get used to the shift in cable pull that changes at about about 1/3 twist. It is not that the bike takes off like a power band kicking at 1/3 throttle, but does change.

    The quality of the throttle tube is top notch. It took about 20 minutes to install and fit perfectly. I highly the G2 Throttle Tamer this to anyone trying get more control over a large bike.

    Installed the Throttle Tamer on my ’09 TE 450, best improvement to the bike I’ve made so far, made the bike much more controllable on tight trails and “whoops”. Total install and adjustment took about 1/2 hr. This is a great product! and its made in the USA!

    I have installed two Throttle Tamers to date; both on KTMs. My 990 Adventure has very poor mapping coming off idle making it “snatchy”. My KTM 250 XCF-W, though carbureted, utilizes an aggressive accelerator pump with a short throw to wide open. It too is “snatchy” coming off idle. Hard to hold steady throttle at very light engine loading. In both cases the Tamer eases this behavior. Does not “cure” either bike, but it helps noticeably. They are extremely well made and very easy to install.

    My crf450 was just too snappy for me, especially offroad. It was just too much work and would wear me out. Put the g2 on and it’s heaven. the best mod I’ve put on my bike and you can swap cams in minutes.

    Highly recommend.

    I am really happy with the Dirt Tamer. It smoothened out my YZ250F’s throttle tremendously but the bike doesn’t feel any slower to me. If anything I am a lot faster now because I have better throttle control. It will be the first modification I will make if I decide to buy another dirt bike.

    Bought this for my 2012 KTM 250-XCW. I have been running the green spring in it because the “hit” with the yellow or red was simply too difficult for me to handle. After adding the Dirt Tamer, the green spring now seemed way too tame but adding the red spring and WA LAH! The hit is much smoother until I give it a good twist and then it has they great power I was missing with the green spring. I know everyone raves about how great these things work on the fuel injected 4 strokes but it really works wonders on the 2 strokes as well. Best money I have spent on my smoker!

    read the reviews and decided I had to try this. It arrived and in ten minutes it was on my ’08 WR250R and ready for a test ride.

    After 45 miles of riding in conditions ranging from pavement to loose gravel, deep sand and near switchback turns with deep loose gravel what an amazing difference!
    No more “off/on” switch for throttle control. It makes the bike so much smoother and easier to control in tight, low speed and low traction situations.

    Exactly what I was looking for – thanks for making a great product that works as advertised.

    Installed this on my 2008 Super Duke 990 R to help smooth out the snatchy throttle response at low speeds and it did just that. However, I also lost a bit of the quick throttle response that I enjoyed both coming off the line and after changing gears. Rode with it for about two weeks and did a bit more research and discovered the primary cause for my particular bike is due to the emissions control system (O2 sensors and mapping). Decided to remove the throttle tamer and am currently working on the mapping. If it’s still a bit snatchy, I’ll consider ordering the 200 or 300 cam. Definitely recommend this product, does exactly what it says, but also recommend getting it with more than one cam.

    Very good quality, smooth as silk. Customer service at G2 great, always willing help. I have a Yamaha WR250F and asked them if the 400 cam that comes with the DT would be to tame. At no extra charge they included the 300 cam. Great product! Great company!

    I have a ’09 KX450 and needed a smoother hit off the bottom for trail riding. The throttle tamer did just that. The initial hit is gone and replaced with a even response. This makes controlling the bike easier and not nearly as tiring when riding tougher trail sections. I should not have waited to purchase. Anyone who rides trails on a 450 will benefit from this product. Once you get past the first 1/4 to 1/3 throttle opening you are back to normal throttle and hit. Installation was as simple as replacing any throttle tube. I see no downside to the tamer.

    I ordered this for my 2013 Ktm 450 XCW and it was exactly what I needed.. The stock throttle on the 450 was just to jerky and this really smoothed out the power delivery and provided me with additional traction as a result of less wheel spin. I really feel like I am in much more control of the bike now… I would highly reccommend especially for those of us who have to have the big 450’s and 500’s.

    Worked great on my YZ250. Made first gear a little more usable going through rocky sections, and noticed traction control is much easier in loose and muddy sections. Hill climbs were also more manageable. The only thing I noticed was a little less pop coming out of some corners, but for trial riding you can’t beat this product. 5 stars.

    • G2 Ergonomics

      Thanks Tony! The Dirt Tamer comes with a 400 cam, which begins about 20% smaller than stock. You mentioned a “little less pop coming out of the corners”. If after giving the 400 cam some more time you still feel this way give us a call. We have a 200 (-10%) and 300 (-15%) cam that both offer more control than stock, but a bit more aggressive down low than the 400.

    I first purchased a Tamer for my 2009 KX450 and was very pleased with how it helped the initial hit off the bottom. So I just purchased one for my 2014 KTM 350 xc-f. The initial throttle hit is smoother but it does not take much of a twist to obtain the hit when needed and that is important. I didn’t want that sluggish feeling that requires a lot of twisting the throttle and the Tamer isn’t that at all.

    I just bought my first 450f. I have a 2014 YZ450f. For the last 5 years I have been riding YZ 250 two strokes. Going to a fuel injection bike, the first thing I notice is that it was jerky of idol in the woods.

    The G2 throttle tamer solved this issue. Great product and great quality.

    Phil M

    This is a fabulous product. The materials, design, fit and finish are top-notch. It also works just as advertised. I converted a YZ250 from an MX bike to a tight woods bike, and tried everything to tame the hit, and make it less likely that I’d whiskey-throttle myself into a tree over every little bump. I messed with the jetting and timing, added a flywheel weight, and put on a Gnarly pipe. None of it really helped that much (except the timing, which killed the top end).

    Finally, I went with the throttle tamer. It’s perfect. The power is still there, but precise manipulation of the throttle at lower speeds is much easier. Blipping the front tire over logs is now easy, instead of terrifying. And if I just roll my wrist a little further… all the power is there, ready to launch me forward when I want to rip.

    Got the straight up Dirt Tamer w/ 400 cam. Took a very long trail ride with various terrain over the weekend. It calmed my TXC 310 down enough to putt around slowly without the jerky throttle. My hand didn’t get as tired as it normally did. Was able to slow down and control the bike easier. Still had the get up and go when I needed it. Worth it investment in my opinion.

    Great Product! I bought the G2 Throttle Tamer for my KTM 200EXC which I mainly ride in the Eastern woods. I had already installed a flywheel weight and tuned the power valve way down but the hit was still pretty brutal and made finesse moves over logs and slick trail areas really difficult. Now with the G2 installed it is like a whole different bike! I can control it like my Sherco Trials bike (well, almost) in slow obstacles but when I need the hit just cranking the throttle further gives me all I need. Thanks G2!!!

    Dirt tamer = same radius as stock (measured) i.e. no difference (Yamaha YZ250F) Deceptive!
    If you want a truely slower initial pull get the $110 “System”. It does have less friction on the bar though, but, less friction does not equal a slower pull. 1 star only because ap forced me to select.

I had cut a few rides short in the past out shear disgust and frustration.

    Works great. I’m using it on a 2016 Beta X-Trainer 300 which I ride primarily on tight single track. This throttle tube allows for a lot more modulation of the lower RPM band of the engine before the power curve starts to ramp up which is really useful for tight technical riding.

    Installing the throttle tamer on my Yamaha XT250 was a piece of cake (I found a good YouTube video that was helpful) and am pleased with the results. It’s reduced the binary nature (all on or all off) of the throttle at low speeds. I’m a returning rider (very rusty after a 30 year layoff), and the throttle tamer has greatly reduced the feeling of lurching around when practicing low-speed maneuvers.

    Before I installed the dirt tamer, I had some concern that this new-to-me bike wasn’t the right bike for me. I’d always feel twice as tired on rides half as long as on my old Xchallenge. When considering the dirt tamer, I was also bummed that I had to “slow down” this new hugely capable bike. Well, no need to worry – this product doesn’t slow you down as much as it lets you use what you’ve got. This thing is priceless – it’s nothing less than transformational for me, turning my KTM from something I wasn’t sure about to the best bike on the planet! 😉 I haven’t had this much fun on 2 wheels for a long time.

    Love it, work just liked I hoped it would. Made my KTM 300 XCW much more enjoyable especially in the low speed stuff. Just a lot more predictable, smoother power. As other have said no loss of power, just less twitchiness and eliminates the on/off switch. I’d buy it again, no question. Disappointed with the documentation/instructions. Looks like it was printed from a 20 year old inkjet that needs a new cartridge, pictures are so bad they are useless. Also be nice to have an install video for the dirt tamer.

    I intentionally bought a dirt bike that was over my head (2017 KTM 350 XCF). I didn’t realize how over my head it was until I raced it and found the roll-on to be terrifying! I played with different sprockets and worked on my throttle control, but still found it to be way too blippy. My friend suggested the tamer, so I bought it and installed with some new grips. The difference was immediately noticable. Whereas before I couldn’t even idle actoss the parking lot without getting whiplash or a hand cramp, I was now cruising around feeling more confident. This thing greatly reduces my clutch side arm pump, as I’m not constantly slipping the throttle to get control in tight technical trails. For comparison, I jumped on my buddy’s 2017 KTM 350 SXF and the difference really sunk in.

    Put it on my Beta 430 16 fuel injected as I found it a bit snitchy for me in the tight stuff.
    Prob the wrong bike for me really but has certainly has helped me in the tight sections.

    This thing is great, run them on all my bikes dirt and street.
    On the street the tamer helps mellow out the abrupt hit from full closed throttle on my 1000cc V-twins(RC51, aprilia tuono and KTM SMT 990)
    Also have a tamer on my KTM 250sx, the control it gives me on hard slippery trails is awesome.

    Very nice product. Easy install. Feel is much better than stock.
    A little disappointed I wasn’t sent the Orange model as it was for a KTM.

    This is an awesome company that I’ll buy from again. Great quality machined parts. Fit and finish is exceptional. It’s too bad you have to cover the throttle tube with a grip! I had installed a flywheel weight on my 2016 KTM 250SX to try and tame it down a little for trails. It didn’t do near as much for me as this Dirt Tamer. I should have bought this first and I could have saved money!

    I ordered this for my 06 crf450x. Great product! Super easy to install. And what a difference! Way more control for tight single track trails. I will definitely add this to future bikes.

    I purchased the G2 throttle Tamer for my 2017 Honda CRF450RX after putting a few rides on bike with stock throttle tube. With the stock throttle tube the bike is too responsive on tight single track. I decided to purchase the Throttle Tamer based on reports of the product. Wow what a serious improvement for control of the bike off idle to 1/2 throttle where you run it in tight single track and I ride Senior Expert class so this is a great improvement for riders of all levels.

    This throttle tube is a must for the YZ450FX. It makes the jumpy throttle much more manageable in the woods. Great product!

    Fit perfectly, tamed down my daughters KTM 250 just enough.

    I got the dirt tamer with the 400 cam supplied and I can’t praise it enough.
    It has smoothed out the power delivery and made for more linear throttle response for my 2009 KTM 300 EXC.
    I love it for my style of riding which is usually single track, and technical hill climbs in a mixture of terrain.

    I installed this on my WR450F, highly recommend, made the bike so much more controllable, was excellent build quality and was fast shipping to Australia. Highly recommend especially to newer riders

    Fast shipping, product as advertised. Definately tamed down the jerky throttle, instant on behavior on my 2017 YZ 250FX. Good product.

    Install on WR250R required moving controls on bar toward center. There is movement now at the bar end of the throttle cables at the adjusters. It is like they flex up and down with throttle movement.

    Overall the abruptness of throttle is slightly reduced but not eliminated. I will need more riding time to fully evaluate how effective it is in smoothing out throttle use. Right now I would rate the improvement at about 40% better.

      Hi Philip, thanks for the feedback! Did you re-adjust the cable freeplay? Using the Throttle Tamer usually requires some cable adjustment. I have no idea why you had to move your controls toward center. We are not aware that our tube is longer than stock. Thanks, Gary

    Moved up from a DR-Z 400 to a fire-breathing KTM 350EXC-F. Got advice from the G2 guys by phone — VERY helpful. Dealer installed it on the bike before I picked it up, so I never felt the “bad”. Now it is smother off-idle than my DR-Z, but has plenty of access to the power when needed. Finished 250 miles in Up North Wisconsin this weekend — throttle was perfectly smooth, every time. Highly Recommended from this 50-y.o. weekend warrior.

    G2 Tamer / Beta X-Trainer.

    Absolutely love the product. Installing it made an immediate difference in my low end throttle control. As a new dirt rider the X-Trainer hits pretty hard and I was constantly nervous with the my clutch control, especially when the terrain got rough or jarring (read: was worried I’d launch myself into the woods). This product really makes that first 1/8 to 1/4 turn gentler and easier to control while with a more deliberate twist all the fun of the Beta is still there. Would install on any punch bikes.

    This was easily the best upgrade I have ever done to one of my bikes. It made my ktm 250 2 stroke so much better to ride. It was very easy to install and such an improvement to the overall fun of the bike.

    Took the strong bite off the initial acceleration. Much better low speed traction now with less need for clutch slipping. 2015 Yamaha WR450F.

    I was pretty skeptical that the Dirt Tamer would actually make much of a difference. The first time riding it I was pretty shocked at how much more manageable it made my ’09 CRF450. No more twitchyness and much better and smoother roll-on powerwise
