    Finger throttle suggestions

    Any suggestions on a good finger throttle to reduce fatigue and improve throttle control?

    Straight pull or standard?

    I got the same ski, and after riding the ocean for 4hrs today, this is the first mod I wanna do, the thumb throttle is so tiring.

    After a quick google, I found these;

    Odd, I find it 100% the other way. Finger tiring. I have skis both ways, thumb all the way and a far better grip on the machine with thumb. Thumb will always be safer, better grip and if you panic and grab on, no WOT

    My old ski is finger throttle too, where if you wanted to, you could use up to 3 fingers to use the throttle, MUCHH less tiring than only one finger.

    But I hear you on the safer thing, I totally agree with that. That's why no non-experienced rider is gonna ride my RXT

    For sure you have to have the mental switch from a bike/motor bike to a ski. Probably why they did the thumb throttle in the first place.
    Wonder why they didn't do a twist throttle like a motorbike.

    I would like to see if anyone has found a good alternative to the Riva. Seems to be a few, but no experience with any of them...

    This Riva is an alternative to the $200+ plastic model and it's adjustable.

    Finger all the way for me. I was so glad when Seadoo started putting them on their newer models.
