Glue on a fat Zip Tie around the throttle cam, 25cents easy. Works great on my bikes.

Yeah, I'm not so sure I understand what your talking about with the zip tie thing. Pics would probably help me out though.

+1 I think it opens up the throttle quicker(less twisting)?? But I'd like to know how its done also:)

The throttle insert gives you less pull to wide open throttle. Most people that I know that has done this mod have TLR's, that's how I know about them. It just shortens the pull or twist of the throttle so you can open it to wide open faster and not get as much arm pump when riding hard. A lot of stunters and racers install them on their bikes.

Ok, so what's your opinion on it? Did it help the bike out much at all?

Do that Mod and go with a 45Tooth rear sprocket and you slingshot out of the apex with your right arm in the correct position.
Take your throttle apart and you'll figure it out.

The mod wasn't hard, it works great I love it and I will always get it on all my bikes to come. I did it with help from a friend it wasn't hard, if u got the tools it can be done with in 20 mins. It shortens the pull on the bike so u can run thur gears like butter, I am looking forward to getting the chain and 45 tooth
