Product Description

G2 Challenge:  Improve control of over-responsive power characteristics of most fuel injected motorcycles.

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 virtually eliminates the jerky “throttle snatch” especially evident in modern fuel injected street bikes.  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 cam is removable and can be replaced with alternate cams (sold separately) to fine tune control.
  • Fits inside the stock throttle housing to stock cables.
  • Works with all known aftermarket cruise controls.
  • Slide one of our Domino grips or your grip unto the Throttle Tamer.
  • Installs in minutes!

    G2 throttle had made a big difference in the low speed handling of my FJR. The G2 arrived here in Australia in a reasonable time and in good nick. Would recommend strongly

    I took my 2007 Yamaha FRJ1300 out for a long ride yesterday after installing the throttle tamer tube and wanted to say the results were astonishing. The bike suffers from very abrupt on/off throttle transition and is also difficult to accelerate smoothly with any degree of control and modulation. The throttle tamer tube improved the response dramatically, well beyond my expectations, especially for a $50 part. Thanks for the great product!

    I ordered from you chaps a “THROTTLE TAMER” for my 2009 Ducati Monster M1100. It arrived the other day and I proceeded to fit it to my bike. All I can say is “WOW!” What a difference it has made. It is SO SMOOTH in slow going traffic. I liked to ride my bike before, BUT NOW I LOVE TO RIDE IT. Thanks Heaps, Your product is AWESOME.

    Just a note about the G2. I ordered and received it for my 08 FJR this week. Yesterday I installed it. It is a real pleasure when an aftermarket product does exactly what it is advertised to do! No more ‘adventures’ going into turns due to the jerky application of power coming off 0 throttle. Starting off from stops is also improved 1000%. Just a smooth application of the throttle. I took the bike for a couple hour ride through the backroads of Connecticut and couldn’t have been more pleased! Thanks for a great product!

    I wanted to tell you what you probably already know. YOUR PRODUCT IS AWESOME. I installed the throttle tube in about ten minutes and felt like I had a new bike. It totally eliminated the jerkiness of my FJR- now I can take corners without worry. My wife immediately felt the difference and asked what I was doing differently- her head wasn’t jerking. I also needed to mention the unbelievable service I received from Sam. Because of the service and product, you have a customer for life and I will sing your praises to all my riding friends.

    I recently purchased a throttle tamer for my Ducati Multistrada: this past weekend we had great weather and so I had a chance to test it both in stop-and-go traffic and on one of my favorite winding roads: Ortega Highway…. The difference your part made was huge: the throttle action is much more controllable/softer, making the bike both more fun to ride and easier to be precise with. I am also impressed by the high quality of the fit and finish; it was also a snap to install. Thank you for a great product; its by far the best $80 I’ve spent on my bike! Thanks!

    Hi, Just a quick email to say that the part turned up yesterday (only posted on Friday – excellent service). I fitted it to my Street Triple R last night (very easy). Rode in to work the back way today (lots of 2 lane bumpy back roads) through the West Sussex ‘South downs’ (the showers have held off today) and the difference is really noticeable. The bike is so much easier to ride, it feels smoother and I didn’t need to worry about bumps affecting the throttle – superb! I will certainly recommend it to any other Triumph riders. Many thanks!

    Hello again, I have installed 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. I believe that your product have much to offer. Thanks Sam & Gary. Thanks G2. You are here, on every “Twist of the Wrist”! Best regards Christos

    Hey guy’s I just want to let you know that the throttle cam that I bought from you over the summer made my Concours 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.

    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.

    Being the guinea pig for the Ducati ST4 has been a pure pleasure. I sent my throttle body into G2 to see if there was anything that would match up. There was! Installation was quick and easy. The attention to detail is beautiful. This throttle is the perfect solution to the low speed jerkiness that is experienced with the stock Ducati throttle assembly. Starts have been smooth and much more controllable. I’ve had no more jerky starts nor have I had any low speed jerky roll on with this throttle. All I can say is thank you G2.

    Having nothing else on the market available that meets the requirement in the UK, the G2 throttle tamer has improved the throttle snatch making the bike more enjoyable to ride and control, well worth the money. No problem fitting with my heated grips,,,,Thanks G2.

    Throttle Tamer kicks ass. Works infinitely better than stock, took less than 10 min and minimal tools to install, and its affordable. No compromises. Its rare that something works out this well.

    :

    I just installed the G2 throttle tamer on my 2000 Ducati ST4. What a differance! Incredibly smooth throttle transitions, all but eliminated the snatchy, jerky throttle at low speed. I was just about ready to dive into a total TPS tweak and throttle sync! The low speed operation now rivals the BMW’s i’ve owned, but with usual stout pull of a Duc that puts that silly grin on your face. Try this mod first before you go tweaking on the TPS or anything else. Either way this is a must do…. Absolutely the best bang for the buck i’ve spent on any bike i’ve owned! Thanks, great product!!

    I installed this throttle tube on my 2009 R1, which is infamous for having poorly set up fueling from the factory due to EPA emission standards. What you will experience is an abruptness when you open the throttle and a harsh lash when you close it, which is the result of the factory setting up the ECU to run the A/F as lean as possible to help with carbon monoxide output. Yamaha’s attempt at rectifying this quirk was the drive mode selector, which adjusts how quickly the throttle valves (and in turn how quickly the injectors ramp up for acceleration and slow down for part throttle) react to your wrist’s input, with the slowest setting reducing the harshness of the fueling the most, but the effect was still obvious in the slowest setting.

    I took this one step further with a G2 Throttle Tamer, which uses an elongated lobe on the throttle tube instead of the OEM’s perfect circle to slow the operation of the throttle shaft. Installation was simple and I’m happy to report my bike is much smoother than what it was. I still have to use the slowest throttle map, but I am no longer anxious to use higher RPMS in fear of that nasty lurch effect. This is the best $80 I’ve ever spent on a bike, and is much better than spending several hundred dollars adjusting the ECU either through a black box or reflash.

    This is a very well made product. First class. I bought it for my Triumph Tiger 800XC. These bikes have very snappy throttle response but also will suddenly die when taking off from a dead stop if there is not enough rpm. The G2 throttle makes it much easier to control the rpm off of idle.

    Love the tamer throttle, worked with Gary for my tech questions, and he was very informative and gave me the right direction to ensure it works on my Daytona 675r.

    I see an immediate difference in response from the bike and how smooth my initial throttle is.

    Couldn’t believe how easy it was to install – everything lined up so I didn’t even have to adjust cables or anything. It has really helped with the KTM990 low throttle jerkiness so I don’t have such an abrupt on/off effect which helps this new to off road guy in the rough stuff

    I purchased the throttle tamer for my 2011 Kawasaki Concours which I’ve owned since new. This was the best upgrade I’ve done, and I wish I’d bought one immediately for my bike! It is so much less abrupt on the throttle and allows smooth small changes in speed rather than the jerkiness I’ve been dealing with. Great product!

    I just came back from a 50-mile backroad ride, my first after installing the Street Tamer. I bought it because my wife was tired of banging helmets and I thought it would help. It has.

    It has transformed my bike (a 2009 650 Ninja). That’s a strong statement, but it’s true. I didn’t realize how much the abrupt nature of the throttle was affecting the handling. I always thought it was me when, after entering a corner, I couldn’t get exactly the line I wanted. The precise throttle control I now have has made cornering much more fun. If I carry either a little to much or too little speed, I can dial in a precise change. Previously, any attempt to modulate the throttle resulted in a sharp change in loading of the suspension and a change in line. Now, I’m able to pick a line easily by simply adjusting the throttle. I was having so much fun exploring this new control that it brought a big grin to my face.

    Another big benefit is coming to a stop while facing uphill. Again, precise throttle control allows for smoother starts. Low-speed handling is much better. Making a U-turn is much, much easier.

    Installation was simple and took about 20 minutes, most of which were spent wrestling the handgrip off the old tube and onto the Tamer. I heated it in a microwave oven for two minutes to make it more pliable and used two pairs of pliers to pull it off and put it on, all while wearing gloves because the grip got very hot. The tamer itself went on easily and fit precisely. Throttle action is smooth and with the grip in place, it’s invisible.

    I’m not one for modifying bikes. My only other change is a Corbin seat. But this is one of those “small change, big results” products. I recommend it without reservation.

    I have the tamer fitted to my FZ6 S2, and although the difference it makes is quite subtle, it’s noticeable. It certainly does the job it’s supposed to, reducing the initial snatch of the throttle. I’m sure the only way to eliminate it completely would be to do a fuel remap, but the tamer sure helps improve things. The level of difference it makes will depend on the bike it’s fitted to. It’s a nicely made item, and is easy to fit even if you’re not particularly mechanically minded. All in all I’m pleased with it and would recommend it. The service from G2 was spot on, good communication and delivered to the UK within 10 days.

    Installed the throttle Tamer on my 2008 Suzuki Burgman 650 and was immediately impressed. These machines are known for their abrupt throttle downshifting as they have an automatic transmission. With the throttle tamer I was able to almost eliminate this abrupt downshifting and am extremely satisfied with the product. The shipping was almost immediately and am very impressed with the company and their products

    Whilst the throttle tamer has gone along way to reduce the snatch on MT09 /fz09? and made the bike more enjoyable to ride, I found the circumference of the throttle tube was incompatible with the genuine YAMAHA heated grips and took a great deal of time and effort to make it fit.

    Got this for my wife’s bike. She’s small so when she held her bike open her shoulder would drop and it would throw off her balance. This is perfect to fix that. It delivers the power smoothly and it’s aggressive without being crazy power. She loves it and is ordering another one for her practice bike.

    Fitted this to my 2014 Yamaha MT-09 (FZ-09) Since fitting it the bike feels so much better. Throttle roll on is smooth and predictable as it should have been from the factory, I now ride in A-mode all the time and am no longer having to concentrate so much on throttle control. There is still a very slight jerk when first rolling on from a closed throttle but because of the cam at this point the throttle is open a lot less than it used to be so its a much softer and more manageable jerk and no longer upsets the bikes attitude like it did before. I can also confirm that the rotation required from closed to fully open is still just 1/4 so overall acceleration is just the same as it was before. The jerky throttle is now a thing of the past for me. Have recommended this to lots of other MT-FZ owners also.

    Makes a big difference. Much more control whilst cracking the throttle in the apex of a bend, and easier to match downshifts/upshifts. Also virtually eliminates that lurch we get when hitting bumps. Freeway cruising is much less fatiguing as the throttle is smoother in the cruising range and control is much better. Worth every cent. Quality is aircraft level. Domino grips are also very good quality.
