Product Description

G2 Challenge:  Offer one throttle set-up for best overall performance in all off-road conditions.

G2 Solution:  The Throttle Tamer.

The Throttle Tamer 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.

The Throttle Tamer 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 Key Points: 

  • Machined from 6061 aluminum in the USA!
  • Self-lubricating Delrin bushings at each end of tube eliminate aluminum-to-aluminum contact and provide an ultra-smooth feel.
  • Included cams: A 400 cam that starts out approximately 15% smaller than stock.
  • Fits inside the stock throttle housing to stock cables.
  • Slide one of our Domino grips (sold separately) or your grip unto the included Throttle Tube.
  • Removable end cap for simple handguard installation.
  • Installs in minutes!

    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.

    Smoothed out the throttle action on my KTM 450EXC, making it far less physically demanding to ride – I like this product.

    This product is great!! Well built and does exactly what it says it would do, tame the throttle to a manageable point!

    :

    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!

    I bought one of these for my Xr600 as it had a light switch throttle (eg; on and off) it worked a treat in taming it, now its smooth and controllable in all conditions…

    I love it….

    I have used Dirt Tamers on a 2012 Kawasaki KX250F and on a 2013 Yamaha YZ450F and they work great at smoothing out the abrupt low end power of both bikes.

    I got the Tamer 400 cam for my 14′ 350 XCF-W and this thing is the bomb!
    No more snatchy throttle and so much more smoother from idle to 1/4 throttle.
    My bike is so much easier to navigate the technical stuff and lifting the front tire
    is much easier, no more whiskey’s for me.

    Great quality. Great product. Love it. Allows for way more control in the right stuff and more traction when you do twist.

    this product was recommended by a friend who is very well versed in all this dirt bike.

    makes riding my 2014 KTM much more enjoyable and even came in Orange

    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.

    Use it on my ktm 690 r, which I use almost exclusively in the dirt. Great bike but if is a bummer trying to crawl thru rock gardens…the snatch was bad news.

    The Tamer made a massive difference. So much more control and the quality is fantastic.

    :

    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.

    The Dirt Tamer is a great product! Provides great control in the tight technical areas.
    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.

    Bought this for my Husqvarna te300. It helped a lot. It took the initial hit out by giving me a little more control of the throttle. I do not have to buy the flywheel now.
