I just finished the Gixerconvert mod and had posted a summary on it.

Here is the link.

I have done a lot of mods to this bike and this is one of my top 3.

In my opinion and only mine :-) it made a huge difference in getting rid of vibration and for ease of use.

I received the brackets today and installed one on my bike. Great craftsmanship and everything went together like a dream. Throttle throw is MUCH lighter now. I will have to re-learn how to ride the bike, especially in Slick mode.

My next ride will be on the track this weekend so here is to hoping this helps me get to WOT sooner.

+1 I installed gixerconverts bracket and it made a HUGE difference. the throttle is so much lighter and smooth now. No more death grip on the bars. My cheapest and most bang for buck mod.

Default Bracket

This is what I ended up with, I have fitted it on the bike and it clears the air box but have not tested it on the track yet , this Friday.This is not a suggestion or a how to , it is purely what I did. You are playing with your throttle here make your own mind up.
