I was hesitant to try to change the push throttle on my ATV to a twist, but this product made it a snap and fit precisely. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who can use a socket and a screwdriver if they need to convert.

I love my twist throttle. I had broke my old thumb throttle so i decided to try a twist throttle. Its great but its a lot to get use to. I put it on a built raptor 700r and its very powerful. I have found out to be very careful tho with the twist throttle or else i might mess up but its a very good throttle
Got to me a day sooner than supposed too. They're very good at getting stuff to you when they say it'll be their. I've never had a problem with any products.
Great Product. Bought it for a 2001 Honda 400EX. Ten times better then the thumb throttle! Takes some mechanical understanding to install. Took about an hour. Easy to adjust. Highly recommend.
I ordered this item because it said it would fit my vehicle, but, when we tried to put it on it had the wrong cable fitting so I am now stuck with something I cannot use!!!!!!
Put this on a 3-wheeler, I thought the thumb throttle was idiotic, and it was also sticking. I picked up a kit that wasn't intended for my machine - think it was for a Kawasaki and on clearance - but it went on just fine and doesn't get jammed at WOT any more. The twist throttle has a quicker action than the thumb throttle did, was twitchy at first but it didn't take long to get use to. It helps if you don't ride with a death-grip, otherwise a twist throttle on a bike that doesn't lean when you turn can be sketchy.
The twist throttle allows one to use the manual transmission the way one is used to on a motorcycle. While some say it is more dangerous than a thumb throttle, the thumb control does not allow for a complete hand grip around the bar while pushing the thumb throttle. Now I can hold the grip better and control the quad as well as I control my dirtbike. It was a simple conversion as well.
Everybody would always tell me to stay away from twist throttles on quads like the plague, and although I held off for some time, I finally gave in due to excessive thumb fatigue on my 06 YFZ450. Boy, was I glad I did! I have been using it for about 3 months now, and have had only one experience where an overshot jump caused me to unintentionally give it throttle. But the pros outweigh the cons. I no longer get thumb/hand fatigue, and I actually have much more control over the throttle than I used to.
The only negative part of this was the installation. On the YFZ450, you have to override the TORS system, which is actually extremely simple (they include a little black plastic looped wire that plugs into the wire socket to mimic the throttle, effectively eliminating the TORS system), after the hour I spent trying to identify the terms used in the instructions. The instructions are not vague, however; they are very precise. But you have to know what the terms mean, otherwise it will take quite a while trying to figure it out.
Of course, it is all personal preference, and the only way to find out is to try it. If you have never operated a twist throttle before, it will inevitably take some getting used to, but it is worth it.
Works exactly how it states and is very simple to install
Don't have to wrench your wrist to get to wot.
Best twist throttle money can buy.
Just What I Needed And Was Easy To Install
Everything I expected from Motion Pro. I have purchased 4 twist throttles in the past and never had any trouble. I you think you might want to try a twist throttle on your quad, this is the way to go. Not too expensive, and can be reversed if not happy.
kind of annoying how i had to take off the gas tank to put it on, and also once i got it on and running it stuck wide open a couple of times wish i would of just kept the thumb throttle and avoided these problems
its not a dirt bike the twist throttle will cauce u problems thru the woods when u turn u also twist it
Easy to install, less than a quarter turn to get to full throttle and looks great with scott mx2 grey grips! highly recommend!
GREAT BUY EASY INSTALL ABOUT 20 MIN.
CHROME VERY NICE. ACTALLY METAL NOT PLASTIC.
