    Polaris X45 throttle advice

    So I broke the throttle lever on my 99 Polaris X45. I found a replacement on Ebay for 40bucks but I was thinking that I would rather have a finger throttle so I was hoping to get some advice on brands and install techniques. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Contact John Zigler. He has aluminum finger throttles that work with Polaris.

    or order a hurricane or octane one and get just the plastic finger lever and rotate your mount around.

    That would work, but Im pretty sure those levers are no longer available. You could try a used one if you can get it for a reasonable price. The lever from an MSX will also work.

    I took at look at those but $75 for a throttle is hard to justify right now. I'm a full time student with a family. They are nice though.

    But you are considering $40 for a plastic one that may break again??..... Hmmm.....

    I bought the aluminum one. Well worth it. Never have to worry again.

    That guy is way over priced on everything he sells. Spend the few extra bucks on the aluminum one. You won't be sorry you did.
