Default Major Throttle and Vibration Improvement From Plate Change from Gixxerconvert

Hello All,

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.

Greg

Default gixxerconvert throttle mod

Gixxerconvert is a fellow member of this forum. He made this plate/bracket to help with the throttle spring tension. Just search for throttle spring in this same forum, and it should return his posts with pictures from him.

I also bought this plate from him. Send him a PM and he will help you out.
I have'nt installed it yet, but people who have used it gave rave reviews.
