Throttle adjustment

4 posts in this topic

Hi I have just bought a 2004 yamaha wr450f its the first bike I have owned larger than a 125cc I am very impressed with it so far but the throttle seems a little snatchy has anyone got any tips on how to adjust the throttle or is there anything I can buy to make it smoother so that I don't get all of the power in one hit ? Also can the suspension be adjusted to improve handling and make riding on the road smoother ?

 

Thanks Guys

Do you mean throttle tube sticking or the accelerator pump?

Accept this is a very good thing, as throttle response on a big motor is very difficult t achieve.

 

 

You need more experience with the bike, and it will seem fine after a while. Especially when going up a hill and you cannot reposition you hands, you will like being able to meter out power with less movement.

 

If you choose not to improve your skills, but just remove the sensitivy, you purchase a G2 'throttle tamer ' throttle tube and install it.

 

The new tube will soften the first 30% of the throttle turn.

 

You can also gear up to 14/51, which will soften power in every gear.
