    Throttle levers

    Anyone ever try these....they are a ton cheaper than the others.

    Anyone have recommendations on throttle levers? Any good deals out there?

    Those work fine. Have been using the same one for 4 seasons now.

    Mine does have the cable adjuster, I assume the one in the link should too.


    Be aware that you will most likely need to shorten the cable length though. There's not enough adjustment between the throttle lever and the adjuster at the intake manifold mounting bracket. What I've seen, done, and others found to work is to tie a knot in the cable.

    You must be exact about the knot location. It must be just below the carb "drum". That way it doesn't limit the carbs from opening part way.


    Sounds hillbilly, but it does work.

    I bought the lever from John at RCJS and I couldn't quite adjust it enough to get full travel. I tied a knot just below the throttle cam...do you have to pull the hell out of the knot to get it really tight? I have to play with it more, but I think it is hanging up a little. The knot doesn't touch the cam, but the cable isn't straight after tying a knot in it, and it doesn't roll into the cam easily....

    any thoughts? Can I buy a shorter cable?

    Polaris kit, I thought the cable was going to be too long, but I just barley got it adjusted. I never thought to knot a perfectly good cable.

    ask john if he has any of the cable drum wheels for your carbs that way you can put your cable end anywhere

    Yes you have to pull the cable really tight to make the knot tight.

    Not quite sure why you're having misalignment issues? Yes the knot moves the cabler a little, but not enough to make it hang up.


    My Pro islike that, her new ride is like that, my old 750 was like that. hmm.....

    How about a pic?

    It's still a good cable, just a wee bit shorter....
