    Throttle Spring Tension-GTR 215

    I would like more throttle spring tension on my 2013 GTR 215. Is there any way to accomplish this? Throttle is too wimpy for me and moves too easily in rough water.

    Eco mode will keep you at 45 mph, are you in sport mode when this occurs?

    If you are trying to somewhat maintain a steady speed in rough water, your hands are moving around and it's hard to keep the throttle steady with no spring tension. My '08 RXP-X has a much more substantial throttle return spring. I wish this one could be made to have that much tension. I realize the two have different throttles, one cable, the other by wire. I'm just wondering if someone has found a way to increase the return spring tension on the throttle by wire lever. Eco mode has less variation but who wants to use that?

    It is not a problem if you just hold it to the bar but sometimes......

    Interesting preference you have. Most people can't stand the 2008 RXP-X throttle. That hard of a pull was always tough especially when trying to ride at 40 MPH for an extended period of time (imagine that, people don't always ride at WOT).
