Throttle Return Spring
Posted June 14, 2002 - 06:30 AM
What I'm basically looking for is a throttle that snaps just by thinking about it. This past week I changed from a Plastic Throttle tube to an Aluminium (Works Connection) in hopes that some of the friction will disappear.
Anybody else got any ideas?
I have forwarded your request to an engineer familiar with the productline.
The information I received is that due to safety issues, Keihin does not offer or recommend throttle return springs with pulls lighter than the original spring. Also, any other spare parts/replacement issues are handled directly by
Hope this information helps.

Have you thought of running with just one cable? This will reduce drag on opening and closing throttle.
OK, there is a risk of throttle sticking WFO but whats the real chance of that happening - I think none.
Plus you save all that weight!

Interesting - I get the idea, but how could the engine generate a vacuum with the slide open? I would have thought the effect of vacuum would be felt when trying to open the throttle while under engine braking?
