My friend has a pro taper tube on his 650R. I don't like it. The response is too quick and skitzo. Especially in goat trails, hills or sections with drop offs where you need to be smooth with the throttle.

I like a little resistance in the throttle.

Take the grips off and clean the throttle tube, then lube it with dry graphite. Smooth like buttah.
