since the way EVOs deliver the torque... and lack of TC...
even with a stock Sporty is not advisable a rapid throttle...
you have to pay attention and be careful even with the oem one

It's not a rapid throttle. It change the ratio only at about 1/2 throttle....If I correct understand It the same up to 1/2 then it becomes rapid allowing less travel to do 1/2 to WOT

If the cam is progressively becoming big... I'd say yes. SO the problem of bumps or road irregularity shuold not be different than stock.

On G2 site the description is not clear, but in the same site the description for "Tamer" tubes for Jap/dirt bikes is good.

I recall reading the G2 were actually slower up to 1/2, at least on some of them, then get progressively quicker.

I'm definitely going to be giving them a shot.

I had searched and didn't find anything. Thank you for the thread. After reading that and finding out it's mainly only for the second half of throttle, I'll probably go ahead and pick one up this winter. Shouldn't be an issue on the bumps then.

It'll help make it easier to whoop on it too.

Thank you all for the responses.

This one is nearly identical to the G2, but it's made from aluminum instead of plastic.

So, who makes the one in aluminium?

Here a link to the ebay shop:

It seems Kev is not active right now; but you should contact him and ask for the throttle.

Some time ago we organized some group buys of the throttle (to US and Australia) and everything works perfect.
