G2 Customer Testimonials
Hi, I want to say thank you for the one on one support you gave me over the phone with installation of my g2 throttle spacers for my sons KTM 50SX. There are very few company's left that you can call and get an actual person that knows all the answers to questions that customers have during installation. It is nice to have a "real" person answer the phone!! I do not know who I spoke to, but the man knew the product well, and would not stop giving me support until my issue was resolved. I highly recommend G2. Its one of the last personable company's left on the face of the earth. A++

I'm the guy who wanted the throttle tamer for my 2010 Ducati Hypermotard 1100evo with the new redesigned single cable throttle set up. WOW! it made a huge difference in the rideability of the bike. If I could only choose one upgrade to this bike that would be it.
Thanks, Bruce - Eureka, CA
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.

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!
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! Jerry
These new handguards are awesome Sam! Built perfect and very easy to put on. Took a rider like me 5 minutes to do and when I say rider, I mean "not mechanic". These things are great. I wouldn't want to use another handguard out there after using these bad boys. Thanks again!
I wanted to thank you again for the blades. I was blown away by the kindness and the fact you actually cared about a single customers needs. Most business don't operate like that anymore As a self employed person, I try to always do the same with my customers. I received the blades and they were exactly what I needed. If I need anything for my bike in the future, I will look to your product first! I will definately spread the word to my friends and family that you stand behind your product and service.
Hello, I recently purchased a pair of your G2 Competition Handguards for my KLR650. I believe they are far superior to the competition. They look thicker and more simple which is the look I go for, i.e. KLR650. I would be grateful if you would please send me a paper catalog along with some stickers or decals to put on my bike. Thanks, Charles
Just installed the G2 on my 2006 Yamaha FJR 1300, Works Great! Now I don't sound like a rookie when I shift (I've been riding since 1970) Great service and delivery.
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 and Best Regards, Mike
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 Jon
Rick from Rockford is very pleased with youre throttle tamer on my 07 tiger. thanks Gary.
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.
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 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 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.
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. David
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. Dennis
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. Fred , South Carolina
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. - Rice
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.<br />
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.- Joseph
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. - Tim
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. - Gary
Having nothing else on the market available that meets the requirment 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. - Steve
I recently purchased one of your throttle tubes. It had the shorter turn cam. I went with that one because i hurt my wrist early on in the season. I just raced the last round of the senior national and took a 2nd. First time i used it and all i can say is wow!!! 100% happy.It makes my bike hit harder, a full second every time i grab it., it almost feals like i have a 3 horse power gain in the low end. $ for $ this is the best in the market thanks- Darrin
I have been running the G2 throttles since 2006. I love them. I have them on my 450s now that I run in the AMA Pro series. I've started running the hand guards this year and they have worked really well. - JD
This cam system is the best. It has made riding my two older two stoke 250's much more enjoyable (at 42 I can now ride much longer because I am not as tired from holding on for dear life all the time, now I can choose when to be balls out). It also helps the bikes become much more adaptible to changing conditions and riding styles. They are well worht the price. - Forrest
The best there is!!!! i like that there is different setting that you could use! i love that i could be running the hard setting and change it before the race to soft if it rained that night! great buy for the money!!! - Neil
Hi just to say thanks for quick delivery of g2 throttle to the uk,you put our countries companys to shame, can't wait to try it on the bike.many thanks Mike
G2 Ergonomics throttle cam
I recently installed a G2 throttle tube and cam on my '00 Husky 610TE. I love my big yellow tractor but often in tight trail situations the power is(was) so abrupt that I found myself blazing new trails through the underbrush or testing the brush guards against trees! I decided to do something about it since I'm not getting any younger but the bike is as snappy as ever. I did some research and decided to call G2. The person answering the phone was named Sam. He listened to my tales of woe and suggested a tube and cam combo that should help me out. They soon came in the mail and I installed them on a Saturday night. It went together nicely but I found the throttle stuck solid at about 3/4 turn. I took the throttle housing apart to find the cam/cable was binding on the cover. I emailed G2 on a Sunday describing my situation and sent pics of the location of the binding. I expected a reply during the next business day/week but the reply came almost instantly from Sam's Blackberry. He explaind the the throttle housing on my bike must be the model KTM had used on their 65SX and looked identical to mine just more compact. He requested my mailing address and promptly sent 2 different cams to fit the smaller housing, a new full sized housing and a new cam with even slower pull rate. He said to use what ever combo suited my needs and send the rest back with G2 paying postage both directions. That, my friends, is the true definition of customer service. Now that the bike is a lot calmer in the tight stuff I'll need to blame something else for my consistantly blowing through the corners and tapping tree trunks.Other companies make similar products but you'd be hard pressed to get such personal service as I did at G2.
