THANK YOU for your service and sacrifice. I'm glad to see your not letting it hold you down. I wish you a great life.

Thanks all. The bike is working great for me. I put 800 miles on the bike the first two weeks I had it. I'm looking at ordering up a set of the Vance and Hines big radius pipes and the performance machine fast air intake. What is the best system for getting the best tune?

Welcome from Virginia. I will never complain about using a throttle rocker again. I'm glad you're able to ride again.

If your still having some problems you might try a Kuryakyn Throttle Boss. It takes a little getting use to but, all you need to do is put pressure on it with the heel of your hand. Here's a link to one that attaches to your grip:

Here's a link to one that you just replace the grips:
