Perhaps a simple question?
My friend and I were talking last night and the topic of 'finger throttles' came up. We're not experts by any means as far as pwc design but why is it you can't put a throttle on a pwc that is similar to a motorcycle?? I mean, if you fall off, you still have a killswitch and everything. Guess I was just wondering--

I think it because you are holding your weight of your upper body with and every wave you hit would make the throttle snap like a bucking bronco. Also twist throttle get stuck easier unless there graphite allot. Just my thoughts. I had one on my banshee and like it only for racing the hill. But for play riding it was a little dangerous.
