    $20.00 Finger Throttle mod

    Thanks to great pics and posts from Snoman I finshed my finger throttle!
    I spent $15.00 on a used finger throttle on Ebay
    Then $5.00 on some 2 part epoxy
    I looked at all the pics and started cutting. Thankyou Snoman for the help!

    Wow my eyes are sore

    Pictures are a bit out of focus .....however I like what you have done. I am doing something very similar but with the new Riva trigger.

    Looks good man!!
    I went about it a little different but the same type of look.

    Remove the thumb nummer throttle & put the pins back in the holes with black silicone to make 'em stay in place. Line up your finger throttle where you want it & be sure it's where you want it because you can only drill one hole. Drill it 50% or more over sized at the angle that the cable lays for fine adjustments.

    This works well for extended bars. I bought the Riva bar extension kit & the shroud cover & lever was a joke so I swapped with a KVPI lever I had on the GSX. The only useful part of the kit to me were the extensions.

    Good job! And pics unlike mine. I didn't write in detail but good point about the angle so the lever is in a comfortable position!

    Great advice Snoman! Due to having many bikes & cars over the years I made sure that was the first thing to check! I thought I was gonna run out of adjustment but there was enough thread.

    Hey seadooridah, The longest part was fitting it. I used the air grinder and cut it apart in about ten minutes. Then filed a little bit trying it on and off. Finally I had it all set, then drilled the hole for the set screw with a comfortable angle. I put duct tape around the finger Throttle then applied the epoxy . It dried in 15 Min's. took it off to sand and realized since I cut all the middle out there was no support to hold the handle bar pad. So I epoxied part of the handle bar size plastic back on. I spent another 25 Min's sanding and fitting. So all in all I would say 2 hours from start to finish.
