    I did this on the DRZ (dual cables) the other day using a variation on the ziptie method.
    There was still slush and ice on the road when I tried it out, so I didn't wring it out too much, but it does seem quicker. Never got to full throttle since I'm a sissy. I did notice an increase in effort, but no binding. I only increased the diameter where the pulling cable wraps aroundas I think it would serve no purpose other than possible holding the throttle partly open to do the other.

    My wrist is seriously in pain right now from a 2 hour highway ride home from a day trip. (not a fan of the throttle rocker BTW). All I could think about for the last hour was doing a search for this mod. I'm going to nip this in the bud tomorrow. thanks jim.

    ran better than the cavs are doing, I'd be afraid of superman if I were in LA! she ran great...real smooth. I'm already craving more power though. I have the 47.5 pilots, and should prob put them in, but I'll wait for a raining day on that.

    sorry for the highjack.....

    Installed my pvc throttle mod today. Snapped right in place in about 10 minutes. No binding, and I didn't have to adjust the cable. Thanks Jim!

    Went for a ride, and WOW! What a difference. I barely need to apply pressure on my throttle rocker to get all the throttle I need, in any gear. I never make it to WOT throttle, cuz I'm a wuss. But if I did want to wrap it, clearly there would be less stress on the wrist.

    Note to Maro. I find that the throttle rocker puts pressure on just the worst spot on the wrist to aggravate my Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. I'm hoping this little gizmo will reduce that pressure. Especially on long rides.

    Thanks Tom,
    As you know I had put the mod on my GS750 and liked it but was hesitant on the 1100 especially after the 1168 kit. Well as far as ergonomics, I could hardly feel it was there, it just took less wrap to get to WOT. Pulled an accidental wheelie as well

    I will see if I can whip out some more before the trip.

    Anyone tried it on the dual cable throttle for the VM's yet?

    I'm going to do this one on the 750 when I get to that stage.....

    Now I spend most of my time at between 1/8 to 1/4 throttle sometimes half or a little more if I want to play, but why do you need to roll on faster, I would find the around town slow speed stuff hard to manage.
