Major Throttle and Vibration Improvement From Plate Change from Gixxerconvert
I purchased the plate to reduce the throttle spring tension from Gixxerconvert and put it on my 2010.
What a MAJOR improvement to the bike!!!!!!!
I know this sounds like I am over selling a simple modification but I was shocked at how much better and easier it made the bike to ride for long distances.
I went for about a 250 mile ride and it obviously reduced the throttle tension but it also significantly reduced the vibration since I didnt have to hold the throttle with a death grip.
It took about a week from the time Gixxerconvert shipped it to me before it arrived to SoCal and then it took about 2 hours from start to finish to install it.
On a side note, everytime I take something apart on this bike I am amazed at the German engineering and desgin that has been built into this bike!
I highly recommend the mod to reduce the throttle tension and I wouldnt hesitate to pick up the plate from Gixxerconvert if you dont have time to build one yourself.
