Holy Crapoli Batman! I put a quick turn throttle cam on my bike the night before a race and did a soft practice lap before the race to discover some outstanding pullon the uphill and straight aways. So first day of riding with the throttle cam... I pull up to the starting line on my cool
new white black grey red with red anodized extras all over the YZ450 and this jerk kid standing next to the fence says, "Cool bike! Don't wreck!" So I'm doing my usaul clutch slip front brake loading in second gear waiting for the pin to disengage on my neighbors gate and shizaam it drops, I drop my clutch and twist while releasing the front break (I was waaaaay over the handle bars expecting some extra torque) got lazy and completely let my clutch go... low and behold, I'm gooning down the straight away with my chin practically touching the front fender to keep the front end down realizing I made a dreadful misjudgment on how much throttle I just hit the motor with... I flew off the bike and watched my bike head for the hole shot without me as my rearend bounces down the tarmac... That bike straight up takes off with a throttle cam. Any way, needless to say I got a crapy start the next time around because I was skidish about how much throttle to apply... but it made up for itself as I was able to stay on the throttle with very little effort after arm pump
saturated my veins. Once I get used to that 1/4 turn throttle cam I'm confident I can roll to victory. First race on my 08 450... dead last 1st moto due to crash and 7th over all due to a lot of make up in the 2nd moto (and thats with being last through the hole 2nd moto).
