Default Video of making a 1/4 turn throttle ring

A viewer asked if I can make a video to construct a quarter turn throttle ring for the Victory motorcycle.
I realize that you can purchase these items, but with the added expenses of shipping, exchange rates and brokerage fees to other countries it gets too high.
And sometimes it is just more relaxing and enjoyable to have the satisfaction of making your own.

You can watch my video here.

Let me know what you think.
Enjoy.

Paul,

You make what are probably the best motorcycle maintenance and modification videos available for ANY bike brand. I am particularly impressed with your well rehearsed verbal delivery of your script. You don't stutter or have any "ummms" or get lost for words. You are VERY professional. Well done and keep up the great work.

G'day,

Vinish

Thanks for the very kind words Vinish, but every time I make a mistake I just edit it out.
I wish real life was like that.
I should post a blooper video.

The mere fact that you do edit out mistakes and do multiple takes is further evidence of your professionalism.

G'day,

The depth of the groove is not that important, the cables are tight after it is installed and the groove is simply there to line them up and keep them from sliding off, I just made it deep enough for that.

As for the cutout opening, it is actually 90 degrees, I made it a tad smaller so I could sand the ends a bit to make a perfect fit when installing. It's better that way than if it was too big.

But that is just me, I take my time, even if it is all day to make sure it is right, it relaxes me and makes me feel better.

I've seen home made PCV 1/4 turn throttle rings for other bikes on other forums but this one is done right. With this in depth setup you could mass produce these things with very little change in tolerance as you go. The others always seemed a little sketchy to me, a stuck throttle is never a nice surprise. This is as close to the mass produced aluminum part I've ever seen. Great job Paul, on the throttle ring and the video!
