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.

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.

Removed mine some time ago. Benefit was obvious but I have long since forgotten the experience prior to the procedure. YOU don't have to worry about the throttle getting jammed (IMO). Remember, you can force it closed with your hand, as there are two cables connected to the throttle; one for open and one for close...

Greg, the spring mod is truly no sweat.

Just get a pair of needlenose pliers, and while you're stroking it, think of all the pleasure you'll get without a sore throttle hand. Then think of winning the bedroom TT with the improved throttle action, then imagine all the admiring posts you'll get from forum members who'd love to have the lusty performance you do, but have not done the mod yet...

what a great post... hysterical.....

i SHOULD tell you that the ONLY reason i haven't done it yet.... is because i'm LEFT-HANDED... and my aching RIGHT throttle hand has NOT affected my bedroom stroking abilities (which already sucked..... :) )

Greg I did mine last night after reading this thread. Use a very small straight slot screwdriver to lift up the straight section of the spring and holding it up grab the spring with your needle nose pliers. Just pull it towards you until it clears the stop and let it go. Done! It takes longer to get the tools than it does to do the job. It’s a very noticeable difference just like everyone has said.

I also did this over the weekend, I found it easier to use a flat head screwdriver to pull the hook end of the spring back and to push it behind what it was attached to.
