2012 throttle spring

Postby predator » Thu Jan 26, 2017 10:33 pm

Guys

Ive noticed my right tumb getting a bit sore on rides. Pretty sure its not caused by death grip as i always try to ride relaxed. Noticed today that i am in fact holding tight to keep the throttle open even at low speeds, i think.

Before i bought the bike i did read somewhere that yama in its wisdom had taut throttle springs.

It has been suggested that you release a spring but have not found a specific instructional set. Have any of you done this, recommend it and can point me in the right direction.

Thanks

You will have to lift the tank and take off 1 turn of the main throttle return spring.
There should be plenty of information on the site with pics.
Just don't let it uncoil 2 turns, a rather violent action when it happens. A bit of a bugger together that 1 turn.

I'll let you search the forum, not doing ya dirty work, it's 3.30 am and can't sleep in this frigging ward. Frigging nurses are LOUD

There's been a few who have done it and i've ridden a mate's FJR who did it....The spring thingy stuffs your throttle action, it won't return to idle after a while. You're better off with a throttle lock, cramp buster or cruise control.

Sounds like a movie title. Maybe have one of the guys drop you in pair safety ear plugs. Nothing worse. Feel better.

Thanks guys.

Think i will go with the safer option. Throttle rest may be the go.

Any advice on brands bases on your experience ? E.g crampbuster for instance has a long and short extension guessing the original longer one would be better.

Thanks.

Nah its smooth..Just playing with it now...between thumb and index finger..def dont remember the ninja 1000 being so tight. In fact first time i rode that, was like a bull...maybe on account of grunt fjr has they made it so..

Anyway looking into the crampbuster thing long one so i can avoid it when its in neutral position and jacked up.


Will report back once its shipped/used etc
