$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.

Looks Awsome Hammer!!!Great job!!! Dont forget to check the butterfly on the throttle body to see if it is all the way open at WOT..ALL the finger throttles i did had to have the throttle adjusted...Heres the link on how to adjust it:

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.[/QUOTE]
Thanks for the response
im hoping to get it done soon
ill post the pics when its done if i ever get around to it.
