My Riva finger throttle install with pics. '07 RXT.
Well, after about a year of wanting to switch to the Riva finger throttle My wife got it for me for my birthday Friday. I wanted to use the ODI Rouge grips too so I ran to RIva and got those too. I searched the forum for info on doing the install on an '07 and looked at a bunch of options. I wanted to keep the stock right side cover, but to do that the ODI grips would not fit. So Saturday I installed the Riva kit the way it is suppose to be done. I used the Riva right side cover and put the grips on. I got done and looked at it and hated it. The Riva cover fits so bad. I couldn't live with it. So I took it apart when I got home today to figure something else out. This is how I finally did it. Riva extensions, finger throttle, factory covers and ODI grips. I rally like that way it looks. It took some time to get right, but worth it.
On the left side I had to cut of about a 1/4 inch of the RIva spacer so I could use the ODI grips. Now for the right side. I cut the stock cover so that the Riva throttle would slide into it sort of so it ends up in the same place as when using the Riva cover. The just hooked up the cable and slide the ODI grips on. So if you have and '07 and want the finger throttle and aftermarket grips. IT will fit.
Here are the pics.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!! Why dident I think of this before!!! I have been riding around with half a hand grip b.c I added the riva finger but not the extensions!! Now I have to order a new pair of grips and finally get back to a normal handle bar. I read your post and 10 seconds later was in the garage cutting it up, it worked out perfect!! Thanks again for being the engineer lol. I can post pics if you want but its almost identical to the first ones.

Nice post, thinking of doing something similar but I do not want to use bar extensions b/c my cover will not fit over them.

Here is what I did to Muddy Rivers 07 RXT using the Riva throttle minus the extentions..Muddy wanted the finger throttle BUT also wanted to be able to put his cover on his ski..So this is what I had done for him MINUS the extentions..Now he has the throttle AND use of his travel cover..
