G2 Throttle Tamer Tube for Suzuki

The G2 Throttle Tamer Suzuki RM & DR is designed to help YOU become a better rider! How? It uses a “progressive” (non-circular) ratio between throttle grip rotation and power delivery. By changing the shape of the pulley, or “cam”, the Throttle Tamer gives you a huge improvement in control!

Each Throttle Tamer’s progressive shape is proven to be the best all-round solution for each model. For most models, the cam size begins about 20% smaller that stock, then it ramps up to the stock size by about one-half throttle.

The Throttle Tamer’s 20% smaller size requires slightly more rotation at first. This slightly longer pull makes a HUGE difference in control! As the power is rolled on, you will find it far easier to modulate traction. The cam size increases, or ramps up, after ½ throttle to keep overall rotation near stock rotation. Whether your goals are faster cornering, less wheelspin or more finesse on those goat trails, the G2 Throttle Tamer will improve your ability to control the throttle!

For 2 cable models (4 strokes or 2 stroke EFI), the cam appears circular from the side. However, if you look closely you will see a channel machined into the cam, This channel has our progressive “tamer” shape. Utilizing a channel provides all the control while keeping the cable positioned properly.

Using handguards? No problem with the G2 Throttle Tamer Tube! The end cap is removeable and allows easy handguard installation. The knurled area allows for solid grip adhesion. Just install a good quality grip (we highly recommend Domino Grips) and you’re good to go!

    Brand-x throttle tamers can be found on the market, but the excellent G2 Dirt Throttle Tamer (TT) design is still the best of them all by far. Here is how I know: my adult son bought one of those brand-x tamers for his 2009 Suzuki DR650 and I volunteered to install it while he was out of country. The G2 Dirt Throttle Tamer’s primary purpose is to allow a carburetor to have a gradual response during the initial twist (0-15 degrees) of the throttle tube. This will allow the rider to more precisely modulate the bike’s power when maneuvering through technical sections of trail.
    Three years ago I was advised that if I wanted the very best throttle tamer for my KLX250S, then there was only one brand to consider -G2. I bought a G2 Dirt TT and installed it on my KLX250S with excellent results. Man was that throttle slick! Great snap, great feel, great machining and great looks. So when I installed the brand-x tamer product on my son’s DR, along with a rebuilt carb and brand new and lubricated throttle cables, I was not happy with the feel, plus I could hear the aluminum tube “clanging” against the handlebar. Upon removal of the brand-x throttle tube, I noticed that the aluminum throttle tube had really scratched up the paint on the new handlebar! What the … My biggest complaint was that the brand-x throttle was nowhere near as slippery-smooth as the G2 on my KLX which was parked right beside the DR. I tried several “improvements”, like putting a light coating of 15W oil on the handlebar as a throttle tube lubricant. Nope. Then I tried a light coating of thin silicone grease. Still not right. Then I tried a light coating of thick grease which felt terrible as the throttle lost all of its snap action but the rattling stopped! I had to admit, the brand-x throttle sucked. What a waste of money.
    Since my son would not be home for another month or so, I decided to order a G2 TT for the DR. When it arrived I compared the G2 TT to the brand-x tamer side by side. At first glance, the overall design of the two seemed strikingly similar, but on closer examination you will find three particular features of the G2 that sets it apart from all of the wanna-be competitors: 1) the G2 has a much higher quality finishing of the metal, as if the machinist took time to polish and buff all the edges and rough areas smooth 2) the G2 had a sweet red anodization on the entire aluminum tube inside and out 3) and this is huge – the G2 throttle has two thin delrin (DuPont Acetal Polyoxymethylene) bushings that are permanently bonded to the inside surface of its throttle tube.
    These tough, long wearing and naturally slick bushings are about 5/8″ wide each and located just inside either end of the of the throttle tube. With the G2 design, only these quiet bushings actually touch the handlebar – there is no metal-to-metal contact, no clanging and no need for messy lubricants! Most importantly, they provide a slick bearing surface for the Throttle tube that give the G2 its special feel: precise, slick and quiet.
