    throttle question!

    can you put a finger throttle in place of the thumb throttle on an 07 GTX?

    As you can see JAYCEE kept the oem plastic cover. I did the same but a little differently. I will post picts as soon as I am done.

    Using the kit as is the entire process takes about 1 to 1.5 hours. Using the existing oem covers takes a little lionger but it is well worthit, much cleaner look.

    Looks great.

    You certainly do not get that clean look with the cover that is included with the throttle kit.

    How about a twist throttle. That finger throttle is a front brake not a throttle. I don't really like the thumb throttle but I'd hate to squeeze the brake on my bike when I wanted a little go fast..
