You can shorten the pull about 8% with some super glue and a large zip tie. Done it to several bikes over the years...

This is the definitive answer for folks not wanting to modify either the R6 throttle or OEM bits.

Installed in about 15 minutes (both sides), and only challenge was fitting my fingers of butter into the TB area to attack the adjusters.

NB: Loctite the crap out of the pinch bolts. They have a habit of loosening up, particularly on the clutch side.

Thanks Norm!

Other Motorcycle: There are other cycles?
Just did my first track day this season and feel I need to be able to get to WOT with a little less throttle rotation. Installed the larger cam that came with my Rizoma grips (been using the smaller cam, the one that matches the stock cam, for some time now) per some of the instructions in this thread. Slackened the cables and was able to get it installed but the throttle is not smooth. It doesn't bind, but I can feel what seems to be the cable rubbing somewhere in there. Could the cable be rubbing too much on the plastic guides at the handlebar end? Should those plastic guides be trimmed back to accommodate the larger cam?
Any guidance would be very much appreciated.

I have got the opportunity to purchase a second hand throttle tube and grip from a bike dismantlers. It says it's from an R6 1998 - 2002. Does anyone know if this year part will have the large cam?

^Probably not larger. You could ask them to measure diameter, if it is larger than 36.5mm.

Does that relate to the outside or the inside?

? The cam size where the cables ride is what matters.

Also I have to correct my previous post, OEM is 36.5mm.

I just did this 22CENTS throttle mod to my bike last night.. Hole mole did it need it:
http://www.triumphrat.net/triumph-su...-question.html

10x cheaper than the R6 throttle tube.
No need to cut/grind cable housing.
Took me long to sand the PVC cut-out than to disassemble and assemble the whole chebang.

I did crazy glue the "adapter" in place with a few dabs. Nothing that can't be undone.

Even considering stepping up the OD to be close to 40 or+. Atleast now i can reach WOT without having to change my grip - which is really shady when you try to break/rev match.
