My throttle seems to twist all the way around the bar.I'm exaggrating,but it does turn a long ways. I was wondering if anybody is using a 1/4 or 1/2 turn throttle on their XRL?Any pics?

I've got a quick ratio throttle assembly from Motion Pro on my L. I put it on when I installed my Edelbrock Pumper. IMHO it makes a nice improvement in throttle response when coupled to the Eddy. Wheelies are almost unavoidable now when I crack the throttle. I pretty much have to lean my big fat ass forward or the wheel comes up every time. :banghead:

Search this forum. There was a thread about this a while ago and there were a few good links in there.

I think it's around $30.00,and I also think it's for a single throttle cable and aftermarket carb.Maybe someone with more knowledge will chime in.Are you still running the stock CV carb?

The one that I got for my L is a Straight Push-Pull Throttle and the price was $19.90. You can find it under the "Controls" section of the Motion Pro web site. I also ordered a set of cables with mine, I'm pretty sure stock cables won't work with it as it's a totally different setup than the stock POS on the L.

Yes. :banghead:

Coupled to the Edelbrock Pumper it made the world of difference. However, I don't know if a stock carb could handle the quicker idle to WOT progression without bogging or flooding. :busted:
