I think the GYT is thumb operated for quicker restarts, and it is placed better on the bar, less possiblity for damage.

I have the GYT-R thumb compression release, it was a waste of money you can run the stock unit under the front brake instead, thats what the factory does on Tim Ferry's works bike, same with the guys at Moto XXX and Yamaha of Troy. If you have $80 burning a hole in your pocket I foound the best thing was DSP steel footpegs, these things are huge over 2 inches wide, they are copies of the one McGrath uses!
