Quick Turn Throttles for TM
The G2 Quick Turn Throttles for TM increases throttle response by decreasing throttle rotation (less turn). This throttle is extremely popular for 250F racers and very aggressive 450 racers. Less rotation keeps your elbows high and you in a proper “attack” position! This is the EXACT throttle used by ECSTAR Twisted Tea Suzuki, TiLUBE/Storm Lake Honda, Babbitts Kawasaki GNCC XC2 racers (KX 250) and Cody Barnes on the Phoenix Honda GNCC Factory Team! It is also an effective solution for TM riders with limited wrist mobility.
The Quick Turn Throttles for TM consists of the ultra-smooth G2 tube with Delrin inserts designed with a throttle pulley approximately 10% larger than stock. This translates into about 10 degrees less “twist” necessary to reach wide open. To put this into perspective, a 3% change is noticeable, so a 10% increase will make a significant difference for your TM!
Many TM models have extra inner clearance inside the stock throttle housing, or controller. For these models, we can achieve a quicker pull by simply increasing the size of the throttle tube’s pulley, so our throttle tube with enlarged pulley works great. However, some models do not have this clearance, so the only quicker option is to replace the entire throttle housing, and this often requires a G2 conversion cable. Regardless, all necessary throttle parts (except the grip – sold separately) are included to give your TM dirt bike the rate of quickness you select!
Increasing the size of the throttle cam/pulley on your Quick Turn Throttle for TM can improve your riding in several ways. First, your bike’s power characteristics will seem far more responsive (quick) – as you turn the throttle, your bike will rev faster than before. Secondly, less overall rotation is required to reach full throttle. This is a huge benefit to riders with limited wrist mobility. In addition, less rotation allows you to more easily maintain a proper riding position with less elbow drop as you crank the throttle.
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!
