Another throttle question...go easy

Not trying to beat the dead horse here. But new guy and got a question(did a search). Anyone tried or know a about a quick turn throttle for the mv. I found it kinda hard to get back on the throttle this weekend mid turn for fear of the power snapping on me(above 5200rpm), but I noticed that i kept turning and turning the throttle(felt like forever) and then finally butterfly movement.

Any sugestions?

It shouldn't feel like forever, I would check the linkage between the throttle and butterflies before you spring for a quicker throttle.

That is not a popular mod here. I assume it is because most feel it is unnecessary.

Are your throttle cable adjusted to give you power the instant you open the throttle? If you have too much "slack" and go from off to on you'll have a delay, large or small, depending upon how they're adjusted.

On all my bikes I like to set the cables for a tiny bit of "slop", and I mean tiny. Just enough to make sure the throttle body butterflys are against the idle stop and not holding the b-flys open when at idle. Superior response but also small unwanted throttle inputs when going over bumps. I prefer the response. And yes I check them at full fork travel both ways.

I got mine. Boy do I ever got mine.

I've been chasing up for a quick 1/4 turn throttle assembly but no one seems to make them for the MV.

Slow is smooth and smooth is fast!!

Had a look at throttle linkage. Smooth movement. Adjusted cables and it got a little tighter. So I will see how it goes. I wonder if Ferracci used a quick throttle on any of their ama bikes?

Um, I just went down to check the 312R throttle. As I suspected, it goes from zero to full in less than 1/4 turn. So, the solution is easy: Buy a 312R!

Adjust your cable. Turn the knurled knob on the cable near the throttle housing to adjust. What I like to do is do it with the engine running, turn until you hear the throttle pick up and then back it off slightly. Then turn the bars side to side to make sure the throttle doesn't pick up and make sure the throttle snaps shut when the engine is off.

My throttle is so sensitive, I sometimes slip the clutch to take off a bit smoother, so different to the F41000S - much more touchy! and heaps more power to control!
