Quick throttle

can't find the thread (as usual) in reqards to taking a triumph 1050 throttle sleeve and putting it on a daytona or a street triple. the author said it was a 10.15 cent item. so i did the ebay thing and found one for 20 bucks. when i went to put it on i compared my st3 to the 1050 and they are exactly the same (well almost). there are visually the same item, however when i put the 1050 on the throttle seems very tight, very hard to turn throttle. however this does Not mean the "cam" is any larger. i've shaved a thin sliver of the cam's width and nothing. grrr any ideas? i'd rather not go the route of buying a quick turn throttle at 200 dollars a pop......thanks john

Is there "slack" in the cables once you fit the whole thing together? Maybe the new throttle tube has the two cables pulling agaist each other once you tighten it up. Try ajusting the cables to achieve more slack.

Maybe if you tell us exactly which bike the throttle tube came from and which bike you're trying to use it on this would make some sense, but "ST3" could be about half the bikes Triumph has made in the last 20 years, and "1050" covers about half the bikes they've made since '05.

If you're trying to put a quicker throttle on a 1050 Sprint, I believe the 1050 Tiger throttle tube is what most people use.

Cheers,
-Kit

Hey Kit, IIRC, this works on the older Sprints, but the Tiger 1050 and the Sprint 1050 use the same throttle tube?

google "quick turn throttle mod, triumph"

Here's what you get...
http://www.triumphrat.net/sprint-for...-throttle.html

first post has the Triumph part number, provided by Dolson. It doesn't get any better than that! And that is the correct part number.

Looks like that's the case. The tube is not sold separately, but as an assembly with the right-hand grip. Part number is the same across the 1050s.

so how does the quicker throttle mod work if you have heated grips (factory heated grips) on a 955i? do you loose the heated grip on the RHS?

I don't think you can swap the tube out of the heated throttle grip, but I never tried.

You could get the T2040331 throttle grip, then buy a set of Oxford heated grips and install them. I've heard they work well.

You have to fit a heated grip from a later 1050 or tiger. That's what I did

The mod for a quick throttle on a 955 Sprint ST as I recall was to fit a Tiger throttle and I am pretty sure it was Dolson who did this.

A 3 second search should bring this up.

cheers
