throttle length

hey guys, is it possible to do a mod which shortens the throw of the throttle.. for example at half throttle, actaully be full throttle? just always need to grab that little extra and its more manageable if it was this way... i have heard of it on other bikes but not sure how it works or what to search for.... appreciate all feedback.. thanks

fully adjustable' i like the sound of that!

Yes, it is possible with the use of a 1/6 turn kit... it replaces the throttle tube, throttle cam, cables, and housing.

I have a friend who superglued a zip tie in the cable channel, under the cable, effectively increasing the diameter of the throttle, and taking up more cable more quickly, viola! About a 2 cent job.
