So tell us about it, mac. How was the install? How is the feel? How well can you control/modulate speeds? Inquiring minds want to know.

Love mine as well. Install took me about 20 minutes. If you've changed your own grips before then it should come pretty easy to you. Feels great, can feel/modulate speed with no problems. I hit that extended rev limiter more often now.

I can't get my head around how this works. Could you please explain the installation? Will it work with aftermarket grips?

You are over-thinking it... It fits around the throttle sleeve making it larger in diameter, thus taking up more cable in a shorter twist distance.



It requires a bit of grinding in the throttle/switch housing for clearance. If you're scared of the install then pay someone to do it, but it's not rocket surgery.

I've had mine since the last weekend in April and love it.

Sorry, I've just been riding not much time on the board. For me it was a pain to install I probably didn't do it the most logical way.
I'm very pleased with it's function. No change in part throttle drivability/control. WOT comes very quickly at least 1/2 of the old total turn. Most riding up to 3K is probably 10 degrees.

You're right...I was over-thinking it. It seems simple enough after your explanation. I guess I'll place the order and dig out the Dremel! I'm guessing it's much nicer without having to reposition your grip to hit WOT.
