finger throttle options?? 4tec

just sharing my opinion and not slamming Riva.
I feel the Riva kit is over priced.
With that out of the way it is a very good option IF you can get past the plastic cover that comes with it.
There is a recent thread and I have a thread discussing using the stock cover. The Riva is a good lever but prefer the UMI lever, had the uni on my other ski.
I feel both are viable options. The X lever is available in piece meal which will run about $200

Here's what I did..
I'm using the Riva bar extension kit. I tossed the cheesy shroud cover they supplied & used the billet finger throttle I had laying around since the riva plastic one was a yamaha trigger.
I removed the OEM thumb throttle & put the plugs back in. I lined up the KVPI to be sure of the grip & finger position at WOT that was comfortable & marked it before I drilled the hole in the shroud cover. Drill the hole at the angle of the cable so it won't look goofy
Here it is.

Love the KVPI throttle... I had one back in the day on my 96XP. Where did you pick it up from?

I had it on my GSX for a while, took it off, put it back on. Then I swapped the riva/yamaha throttle over to the GSX & put it on the rxp.
I got it on ebay several yrs ago.

Excellent job on the finger throttle... Looks factory. Can you list exactly what parts you needed to do that project?

Yeah I dont think KVPI is even around anymore. Best throttle I ever had.

Nice!! did you need to use the Riva bar extensions?
Looks like you have plenty of room there.
