The springs are the same overall size, just differing wire gauges and number of turns, and can be swapped between the throttles if you prefer the softer spring.

Hi Greg,

This might be a silly question, but how can you tell the throttle is the latest version? I'm looking at replacing mine from one on eBay, as I'm still regularly getting the Gas Position error, but I want to be sure I'm not getting an older, outdated throttle.

Cheers,
Nick

G'day Nick,

Unfortunately, you cannot tell them apart visually as far as I can see. You would need to trust the seller. Once the part is fitted, you can definitely feel that the return spring is heavier. And yes, you can switch back to the old spring if you prefer, as Tony said.

Regards, Greg.

We're all here, but we're not all there.

Thanks for the info. The bike is at the dealership next Friday so I'll ask them to take a look at the throttle and see if they can ascertain its age (I always assumed a 2015 bike would be on the latest anyway).
