Product Description

The G2 Street Throttle Tamer Tube for Honda incorporates a non-linear ratio between hand throttle rotation and carburetor or throttle body opening. The throttle tube has a pulley where the throttle cable, or cables, attach. This pulley pulls the throttle cable as the rider rotates the grip/tube combination. By altering the conventional, circular shaped pulley into a “cam” shape, a vast improvement in control is achieved and throttle snatch is drastically reduced.

The G2 Street Throttle Tamer Tube has a pulley with a reduced radius initially, which requires a slightly farther rotation to achieve the same carburetor or throttle body opening position as compared to the stock throttle tube. 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 required to reach full throttle at or near stock rotation.

The profile shape and ratio proven to be the best all-round solution for each model is used.

You will need a grip to install to your new Throttle Tamer. If your stock grip is in good condition, most may be removed and installed onto your Throttle Tamer. Check out our INSTALLATION section for removing stock grips from the stock plastic throttle tube, gluing grips onto the Throttle Tamer and installing the Throttle Tamer with your stock throttle housing and cables.

G2 has offered the Street Throttle Tamer Tube for over 17 years with tens of thousands of satisfied customers worldwide. We guarantee you will find this the best investment in control you have ever made, or you can return the throttle for a full refund! At G2, we stand behind our products and pride ourselves on the best customer service. If you have ANY questions about our throttle, please call or email (see contacts page). We guarantee a human will answer the phone or respond to your voicemail within one business day!

    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.

    Installed the throttle tamer and Domino sport touring grips on my 2014 Honda CTX1300. Roll-on throttle from stop vastly improved, and surge at speed when hitting bumps somewhat better. An excellent performance mod!

    Hi Gary thank you for shipping the item as quick as possible. It actually made it Saturday morning enough time to for me to install it and head to track…it’s actually amazing how much different the bike responded after it..very happy with the result!

    I seriously think it’s a must mod.,it’s much smoother and the quality of the product is excellent compare to plastic assembly. Thank you for sending me both the 300 and 200 cam, I ended up using the 300 which I’m happy with.

    Big thanks to G2 team for making this excellent product!

    I put this on an 08′ CBR1000RR. The stock tube was the typical on/off switch off idle. You had to get it PERFECT to be smooth, otherwise it would just snap and lurch.

    At first I didn’t think it did much because it really seemed just like stock, but after riding for a while this is because we stretched the cable a little to get it off the stock tube. After a bit of riding, it was night and day how much better this new tube is. Smoother off idle, slow movement control 10 times better, just more enjoyable to ride when you are just riding around town, cruising, or anything that’s not aggressive riding.

    In my opinion, ALL sport bikes should come with this tube from the factory. Maybe even all bikes that can fit them, period!

    I have the G2 Street Tamer on every Honda FI bike I own; 2014 CB1100, 2009 ST1300 and 2000 VFR800. While the G2 Street Tamer smooths out the throttle action on all of these bike, it was the ST1300 that benefited the most from the G2 Street Tamer. The ST1300 has a nasty ON/OFF switch effect that the G2 Street Tamer cured. The G2 Street Tamer is a great product at a reasonable price; much more cost effective than trying to address the FI issues with either an electronic break-out box or an ECU re-flash. TINK

    Great product, really smoothed out the throttle on the 2014 CB1100. Went on easy after slacking the throttle linkage. Well made and Delrin bushing makes it rotate easily. Took about 15 minutes to swap out. Highly recommended.

    Perfect fit for my Honda NC700X. Much smoother engine control especially when accelerating from a stopped condition.

    Installed this on my 2000 Honda CBR1100 Blackbird and it’s awesome. Completely eliminated the snatchy, hard to control behavior when you’re just rolling on the throttle. I’d recommend this for any fuel injected bike, and I’m probably going to install one on my VFR as well. Fantastic product.

    Very easy to install (maybe 20 minutes, total time), fit like a well made part should and, best of all, it worked. Still a slight punch coming back on throttle from fully closed, but that’s probably due to the 100% fuel cut-off in the EFI map.

    I ride in A mode all the time now, it’s controllable, even in slow speed exercises and turns from a standing start in traffic.

    This is where to start. If you want more, then go spend hundre$ on a Power Commander, or a re-map.

    I fitted this to my RC51 on Friday and went out on a 160mile test ride thro’ our local “hunting ground” (Eifel, Germany) on Sunday. After a few miles adapting (I’m no spring chicken) to the softer throttle response, I found the bike much, much easier to ride, particularly on small, nadgery roads with uphill hairpin bends and, during the schlepp back into the city later, in traffic. I reckon this throttle has bought me another few years on this bike, which I’ve had since new (115,000miles on the clock), use for touring and really like. My other half, perched on the back seat also noticed that the ride was smoother.

    In short, it’s a well thought out throttle tube, beautifully engineered and I recommend it 🙂

    Product works as advertised. I track a cbr 1000rr, on/off throttle transition is greatly improved. Increased confidence allows me to get on the throttle sooner after the apex

    I put the G2 Throttle Tamer on my 2001 VFR. It does tame the throttle in just the right way. Easier interaction with the clutch on takeoff. Smoother shifting also. Most important to me is the ease of staying slightly on throttle in the corners. It does not hamper acceleration. Honda should have sold the bike with this throttle.

    On the VFR, to get enough cable slack, you have to take two Phillips screws out to loosen the throttle wheel under the tank. Be very careful to not strip those screws. It is ease to do–you can’t get straight at them. After a squirt of penetrator, I used a 1/4 ratchet and a short driver bit. I pried inward on the back of the ratchet, forcing the bit well into the screw. Do not use those screws again. Use allen head screws from HD instead.

    I’ve seen a lot of products over 30 years or riding, the machining is first class, the function is better than stock (ie: it turns smoother). The rest of the story is that unlike many others; this part delivers everything that was promised.

    I jut got my Street Tamer Throttle installed on my 2007 Honda 919. The product appears to manufactured to high quality standards and installation was a snap. My 919 has a real itchy throttle especially when you need just a little kick getting through a turn. I had to be careful because it was all on or all off on my bike,no middle ground. With the Street Tamer Throttle I notice a significant improvement. It’s not perfect but definitely better than stock. Guys were very helpful when I called to get more info. If you have an itchy throttle this is the best way I have seen to smooth her out.

    Ordered a G2 Ergonomics Throttle Tamer for my Honda VFR800 Interceptor on Monday, afternoon, 6/18/18. Package arrived Thursday morning, 6/21/18. Super Service. Installation was simple and fast. Two test rides later on ascending and descending steep, twisty canyon and mountain roads, and every bad, bumpy, rutted road I could find, and I’m blown away. Superb Product! Bike rides slower and yet faster, more aggressive and yet safer because of the throttle control.

    I lack the engineering expertise to adequately describe or quantify the improvements I felt and why they occurred. Simply, it felt like I had greater control of the engine at small throttle openings / RPM’s–and this resulted in greater suspension stability, greater tire traction, and greater general comfort and pure fun. The bike operated in a much safer manner! (A Tamer manner?)

    It feels like I now control the bike. Thanks!

    Excellent product. I installed on a 2016 Africa Twin. Did exactly as promised. Smoothed out the low end very nicely. Install was quick and easy. I’m a fan.

    just fitted the G2 tamer to a VTR SP1 /RC51 and what a difference absolutely incredible ride.smoothed out every jitter at low revs.feels more like a carbureted 4 cylinder bike than a race bred v twin.so enjoyable at low revs now ,these bikes don’t get the nick name of pig for nothing.will be passing on my gleaming recommendations on to RC51/VTR SP1/SP2 groups.thank you so much
