Default 1/4 turn throttle

Is the 1/4 turn throttle worth the minimal cost. I've gotten used to the turn but that lag on the bottom end drives me crazy.

It's cheap enough you can easily try it and decide if you like it or not. I honestly didn't ride my bike much at all before adding the 1/4 turn with bar change so I don't even know what stock feels like. I know I barely have to move my wrist and I like that. Others have tried it and decided not to keep it. Only you really know for sure what you like.

Well worth it. I would never take mine off. There's a difference, not huge,but it a nice one.

And now, for something different.

I had one and ended up removing it. It worked fine. However, you lose a little throttle control; it takes less roll to change the throttle so it's much more sensitive. I spend time in traffic occasionally so I like more control over my throttle. Is it a big change? not really, I just prefer not using it. I appear to be in the minority here

The twist ratio of the throttle grip is in no way related to lag at the bottom end. It will not be a cheap fix for a tuning issue.

All the 1/4 turn does is make the rotational distance of the grip from 0 to 100% match the rotational distance of a human wrist. Period, end of story.

I had a CR for 3 years thought the 1/4 turn was a silly gimmick. Bought a used CC that had a 1/4 turn and would not want to ride without it. I hardly move my wrist all day its much more comfortable with the throttle boss than without.

I agree. Next time I have that side apart it is coming out.
