Someone please enlighten me on the 1/4" throttle ring. The thought of it being all or nothing sounds terrifying. Is it really that good???

I like mine, I used to have to readjust my grip if I wanted to crank her open to merge or pass or something.
Now I can do it without readjusting my grip.
And it still moves easily at low speeds.
I like it and am keeping it on.

I have it also and it makes a BIG difference!

It's name gives a misconception ... it doesn't reduce the grip twist to 1/4 but it will give you the feeling that it's only taking 1/4 of the effort when you crack it from full stop to full open.

And it's not all or nothing... I went from 120 degree twist to 90 degree.
So, if we do the math, that's a reduction of 1/4 ... ;)

Well, I don't know about everyone else's bike, but after installing the 1/4-turn ring on my bike my throttle twist range is now approx. 90°.

The benefit is you don't have to twist the wrist as much to get the same throttle response.

Heck with twisting the wrist... I'm gonna mount a thumb throttle off a quad on mine and be done with it!

Yeah just a little less twist would be great... I am thinking the 3/8 throttle would be spot on!
Install a 2 pulley system on the throttle cable. Post pics when its done.:D

Here's a thought ... generally when we apply the brakes, we let off the gas. In a cage, we have a brake pedal and a gas pedal.

Why not rig up a gas pedal next to the brake pedal and completely do away with using hand or thumb for throttle?

ya, I know, I'm getting carried away .... :ltr: wac
