Has anyone removed a throttle return spring on his/her Brutale?

i know that one of the throttle return springs is READILY ACCESSIBLE on the Brutale.... i have read James' Blog about this issue. i TRULY feel that most of the MY problem with the hand pain after long rides is based here.

has ANYONE removed that spring on his/her Brutale?
care to comment about it?

thanks in advance

I 'removed' it as per FAQ. Benefits? My forearm/wrist is saved from pain. And throttle is easier to control, as one would expect. Good mod, and one that you can undo if you want it back to stock, I think.

I just got turned on to that mod by Airfuel yesterday. Did it last night and just went for a blast. Man is my acupuncturist is going to be bummed as I don't think I will be needing more carpal tunnel treatments any time soon.

did you just BEND the end of the spring out of the way?
did it WIND UP several times?
how are you sure it won't cause the throttle to be stuck in the future?

Yes, more like pry, and it got loose and out of the way.

did it "snap back?"
what percentage (approximately) of the ridiculously HIGH tension in the throttle has been removed by this simple procedure?

sorry for all the questions

Greg, WE all love you but I`m not going to be the one to talk you into putting your first tool to your bike. It is nothing to be afarid of and it works great.
