    I think i appreciate the thumb throttle more because i do more rough riding than glass. The thumb throttle makes it easier to feather the gas in the rough stuff due to your natural reaction to squeez and hold on in rough water. It may just be my opinion but thats how i feel about it.

    yes indeed, just your opinion, just ask yourself the question: "they make finger throttle conversions for seadoos, they dont make any thumb throttle conversion for normal skis...."

    Why?

    Once you use a finger throttle you will never go back. It is so comfortable and there is zero fatigue.

    Boataddict: If you remember a post awhile back, I destroyed one of the extensions that was welded in the handle bar from corrosion, and it was only in there for 6 months. I`d thought it be easier to remove, since I wanted to install the factory cover for the winter. The right side came out with little struggle, but no deal with the left side, so I re-installed the thumb throttle for now. I don`t care for the cheesy pin/shaft that hinges the stock thumb throttle. It doesn`t matter for me which one is less fatigue, bc carpal tunnel as wreaked havoc on both my wrists anyway, job injuries...PR...

    I still have the thumb throttle on my RXP. I had a finger throttle on my MSX 140. Come to think of it, it was one of the only redeeming features of that ski in stock form.
    I would like to purchase the finger kit but with a new baby there is not a lot of money for mods.

    Does the carpal tunnel give you much grief on long rides?

    The thumb throttle is absoleutely stupid. Sea-Doo should give up on that unique design. Riding in the chop, it tires your whole arm out. On glass it hampers progress (think physics - pushing forward on the throttle is contrary to the forces pushing everything backwards while running WOT). It just doesn't make sense practicly speaking.
