    Broken thumb throttle

    I have searched and searched on here for information on how to replace polaris slt 750 thumb throttle with a bolt on bicycle brake lever but I can't seem to find it. I have found people saying it can be done, but no one explained how. My problem is the throttle cable doesn't screw on to the bicycle brake lever. It looks like the polaris cable is much bigger. Can anyone help me out?

    Thanks!

    Thanks for the fast reply! I know you can replace it with a finger throttle. That's kind of what I am trying to do with the bicycle brake lever. It looks like it would work...just not sure how to get it screwed in. I already had the bicycle brake lever laying around and I didn't want to order a finger throttle as I'm leaving for the lake tomorrow afternoon.

    Thatnks, I got in touch with beerdart and he told me kind of the same thing. He said to drill it out and tap it. That's what I did last night, and it worked perfect.
