Bought a 17 YZ250F and wanted to get rid of the jerkiness on the bottom end. Did exactly that. Much more manageable of a bike and couldn’t be happier with it. Takes maybe 5-10 minutes to install. Highly recommend!
This is the second throttle tamer I have purchased. Both were for 250cc two stroke motocross bikes to tame that power and out to enable improved traction as handling while at slower speeds for trail riding
This throttle tamer comes with standard, 20%, and 40%. Works as it says and it’s buttery smooth!
This allowed for much better throttle control on my YZ250X. Highly recommended!!!
I think I’m ready to go pro st age 55.LOL
I have not ridden with it yet but i will say that the quality of the parts is excellent. The cams have a light press fit onto the throttle tube. Very nice machining on these all aluminum parts. The throttle tube has a very precise fit onto the handlebar also. I dont understand why there is a rib close to the cam system. This prevents my stock handgrips from being installed all the way. Because of this rib, there is a gap between the handgrip and the stock throttle cable casting. I cut a piece of round water pipe insulation to fill this gap otherwise mud and water could get into the throttle cable casting.
Love it smoothed out throttle response recommend this product
Bought it for my 2017 wr450f to get rid of the 0-25% snap and it did it’s job!
I bought this to stop the Goon riding when you get tired and it has helped tremendously. I use the 400 cam.
I ride a 2016 kx450f and mostly single track. The trails I take are difficult and generally a 25 to 40 mile loop. The terrain is a mix of gravel, lose and hard rock. There is also steep climbs that have twists and turns. The downhill can be just as difficult as the uphill stuff. To take my beast I tried the G2 throttle tamer. I needed better control when the conditions were right, lose, and rough. I recommend the throttle tamer, but make sure you turn up your idle. It's sounds simple to turn up the idle but I forgot until 15 miles onto my trip. I hope this helps you make a choice. I have not modified the engine any other way.
The Throttle Cam System incorporates a non-linear ratio between hand throttle rotation and carburetor or throttle body opening. The “pulley”, or as we call it, “cam” pulls the throttle cable as the rider rotates the grip/tube. By altering the conventional, circular shaped cam, a vast improvement in control is achieved.
The Throttle Cam System has cam options with reduced radius for the first ½ of throttle rotation, which requires a slightly farther turn to achieve the same carburetor or throttle body opening position as a stock throttle. This slightly longer pull makes a HUGE difference in rider control as the power is rolled on. The system comes with a “100CAM” – same as stock, “200CAM” – starts out 10% smaller than stock and “400CAM” – starts out 20% smaller than stock. The radius of the 200CAM and 400CAM increases or “ramps up” to stock size at ½ throttle to keep overall rotation required to reach full throttle at or near stock rotation.
