    RIVA Finger throttle defect...

    Well as i found out you will need to mod it so it will work and open the throttle body to a full 90 as it doesnt have enough pull. read this thread
    http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=121400 im sure there are people running around with this lever and a TB that wont open all the way

    and here a befor and after pic of what i did to correct the issue.

    Contact Riva about the issue,years ago i had the same problem,with the Umi fingerthrottle,i used to cut up my grips.
    This is a better solution,i did read your thread.
    The way you checked your throttlebody is the only way to be sure ,this way you have full power at wot.

    riva throttle has a pivot so i just added a small spacer to allow for more pull.

    Look like the UMI has alot more meat on it. No way you could grind an riva one.

    I agree. Rival already flattened it out. Plus the pivot point is different with riva and umi. Didn't mean to hijack.
