Anyone have experience with G2 Ergonomics progressive throttle tube?
point of thread and the original question. but thanks for clarifying.That makes sense. How well does it work? I assume it operates "slower" at lower throttle openings and "quicker" as you get to the higher one.
Is the lower opening made slower or does the increased openings just go faster than stock?
this is what i was looking for. an answer with experience. the Vee throttle is just too sensitive in the initial turn. i think i'll give a try and write a review after.I have the G2 throttle tube on my ST1300. It's designed to give more control at low throttle openings where an abrupt FI system can give you problems like jerkiness or breaking traction (hi speed cornering, parking lot handling or off road). It has no other noticeable effect and works well on the ST. The DL650 has good FI and is very smooth at just off-idle throttle openings so doesn't need one. It could help the 1000 off road though.
thanks for your input.The G2 cam was an excellent addition to my KTM 300 XC-W (2 stroke).
The slower opening cam at smaller throttle opening was a welcome addition to the 300, which can be quite a handful when on the pipe. It does its best work for me when I am dog tired in a harescramble, forearms pumped, hands numb, and I dont have quite the fine motor skill control of the throttle that I did at the beginning of the race.
G2 also has a cam that opens the throttle faster, useful in Motocross I guess. Not entirely sure what the benefit could be to a strom.
You can change the cams on the throttle tube, mine came with 3
Dorzok,thanks for your input.
they don't make the adjustable tube for street bikes. they use their 400 profile on the street tubes. I would use the quick cam on my TTR230 because the rotation of the throttle is huge on that thing.
nope. the industry i work in is way down, work is down and money's been tight. but, i bought new grips and the OEM throttle tube isn't conducive to using after market grips without modification. so, i might just have to bight the bullet and get an $80 trottle tube so i can install my $15 grips. gotta love it.Dorzok,
Did you ever order one of these? I just placed an order for one, guess we'll see how it goes.

Bit the bullet and bought one. low speed, low gear, low throttle is much easier to control. no noticeable difference in acceleration from stop. easy install, no adjustment to cable was needed. OD is a little larger than stock so grip is a little harder to get on (replaced the OEM with http://www.spidergrips.com/index.html, throttle side is too short or the tube is too long by 1/4"). don't know that it's worth the 80 bucks. is nicely made though.Anyone have experience with G2 Ergonomics progressive throttle tube?
