See here:Is there a way to eliminate the progressiveness of the throttle and have just linear throttle application?
The throttle pulley where the cable runs on the grip tube isn't round, it's sort of oblong/cam shaped, so that there is slightly less throttle opening at the beginning and progressively more as you turn it more.what is progressive throttle?
Yep, that's exactly how it works...now i feel that initial throttle with the clutch needs me to pull more than higher throttle input.
It bends your wrist way too much to get full throttle without re-gripping. This is pretty typical with progressive throttles. The R6 throttle is linear, as is the R1s.dont you just twist it to full to get full throttle? i don't have issue on mid range band, however i wish my throttle is more linear.
Be warned though that if you get a REV2, you'll also need to replace your starter switch. But the good thing is that they give you multiple reels to tune it how you like.See here:
And go to post #33 in this thread for REV2 throttle kit. Mostly for racing but you might like it. You can tailor it to your liking. About $164.
Yamaha and all of the reviews talk about the progressive throttle pull, so the part that makes the R3's throttle progressive would have to be the reel/pulley attached down on the throttle body where the throttle cable end attaches there. It must have an eccentric shape....the R3 parts manual isn't clear enough to see how much of a cam shape it has. This part can't be changed easily, if at all.Just to be clear, the stock throttle reel itself is NOT progressive (I just looked to be sure). So either it's just too small for some people, or there's something else that's causing it to feel progressive.
Well, there's always the chance that some manufacturer will pick on the chatter about the subject and come to the rescue with an eccentric throttle tube. If it happens at all, though, it might be a while.....Oh great, that's interesting, I was hoping it would be a simple fix with the reel from a R6 throttle tube. Oh well.
The Rev2 would help some, but wouldn't get around all of it then.
I'm starting to think about selling the Ducati. I rode it after the R3 and really the riding position is uncomfortable compared to R3. Maybe I'll trade it in on a ZX10R. I feel better on the R3 just hate the throttle. lol
You're correct...the orange one is the cam reel.There is only one that is cam-shaped (the orange one). The others are not.
