    Question 96 XP finger throttle...?

    Picking up a pair of these this weekend and want to know the best kind and price for a finger throttle. I hate those terrible thumb throttles. Let me know what I need to know... thanks in advance!

    The angled UMI are the best.

    NO, the stock grips include a spacer in the end. You will have to extend the bars 1.25" on each side to makeup the difference and the grip fastens to that.

    Pics of a '98 xpl with JayZ's extentions. They fit perfectly with the OEM hex insert . -Ignore the duck tape it was temporary.

    Yes, the bars may be too low depending on your size. I found the ProTaper SE bars, size ATV-Mid, offered a better feel (closer to stock height). Bring your ski to your local dirt bike shop and eye'm up.

    The ODI grips are so good I found a way to use them on my GPR. http://greenhulk.net/forums/showthread.php?t=54417
