Re: R6 throttle tube mod beat me

It is.
I bought a new set of headers for the purpose.
Kept the original set, just in case..
No reason for that except ya never know..
Currently no legislation to worry about, but ya never know.

Re: R6 throttle tube mod beat me

Setup and test ride done. Throttle tube is a massive improvement. So much better and not overlyaggresive. Adjusted to the difference very quickly. Not ridden the bike for months so easy adjustment. The quickshifter is something else entirely. Never used one before, so a huge learning curve. Tried to...

Re: R6 throttle tube mod beat me

Came back to this today. Got back from mot at 10.30 and got stuck straight in. Finished at 8pm. What a mission. Fitted new headers. Then fitted a decat, which requires the cat cutting off.

Re: R6 throttle tube mod beat me

I've done the same mod to 5 or 6 bikes previously.
You quickly adjust to the faster turn.
Its one of tbose mods that make you think, why didn't it come like that in the first place..?!
Why Yamaha saw fit to use a shorter turn and Honda didn't is beyond me.

Re: R6 throttle tube mod beat me

Doesnt need 2 twists to get full throttle like now.
Puts it on a par with the R6.
