G2 Throttle Tamer Tube for Yamaha

The G2 Throttle Tamer for Yamaha motorcycles 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! This is the exact throttle used by Team Babbitts Kawasaki for GNCC XC1 and countless other off-road professionals!

Each Yamaha 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 than stock, then it ramps up to the stock size by about one-half throttle.

The Throttle Tamer’s 20% smaller than the stock Yamaha 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 Yamaha models, 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.

Are Delrin bushings better than ball bearings?

Ball bearing equipped throttle tubes seem like a great idea. Once installed and you’re twisting the throttle (with the bike on a stand and the engine off) it sure feels sweet! But give it a “real world test”. While you’re sitting on the bike, apply a bit of downward pressure on the grip as you turn. You will immediately feel the aluminum tube contact the handlebar. With G2 Throttles, the Delrin bushings prevent this completely! Push down all you want! In addition, ball bearings require constant maintenance, or the bearing will corrode and ultimately seize. Not so with our Delrin bushing equipped throttle tubes!

Using handguards? No problem with the G2 Throttle Tamer Tube for Yamaha! 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!

  1. Adam C.

    Great modification, tames the snappiness of a WR450 as claimed, without losing any top end power

  2. Lamar J.

    Haven’t tried it out yet but the build quality is outstanding

  3. Michael M.

    Really taken some of the jerkiness out of low throttle riding

  4. Larz B.

    I put this on my 2016 yz250x with the Jimmy twister , makes throttle a little smoother and it feels easier to twist in general rideing and tight enduro terrain .

  5. Paul W.

    Great product

  6. Casey Carroll

    Works Awesome!

  7. Stephen

    Very nice throttle tube. The ability to change throttle cams to suit my riding is really a nice and unique feature.

  8. Timothy M.

    I purchased the Jimmy Twister along with a a Throttle Tamer. I run bark busters that attach to the handle bars. Didn’t realize the Jimmy Twister won’t work with this setup. Love the Throttle Tamer but I’m out $40.00 for a Jimmy Twister I can’t use. Wish this was mentioned in the advertisement/description.

  9. Joshua M.

    Really took the jump out of the throttle on a 450. A must have kit

  10. Karl Smith

    I have a 2011 WR250R with 17k miles. The throttle tube was due for replacement anyway but so glad I went with the G2. Smoother than a stock tube but best part is the upgraded throttle control. So much smoother on off throttle but twist half way and full power is there.
