Throttle Spacers - Remove throttle sloppiness

A customer of ours turned us on to these spacer kits that were originally designed for the Ducati Panigale. They remove the slop from the electronic throttle. We put together a quick video of the install on a customer Thruxton R to show how easy it is. They definitely work on 7/8” bar models (Thruxton R, Street Twin, Street Cup and Street Scrambler), we are waiting to confirm whether or not 1” will also work.

I apologize if already a thread on these, I searched and nothing came up.

This was covered last year, but without stickies anything useful like this gets lost.

Perhaps you could offer the small screws as a kit too
Forchetto, lambroving and Delta like this.

Bike with a few things added, such as... me. I prefer riding my bike to bragging about the chromed rear foot-pegs. Does that make me strange?

I installed this after work today and love it. Takes about 10 minutes (I have lane splitters and had to remove it, but that's about 45 seconds worth.) You'll scream when you see what's in the package - two small plastic rings shaped to the stops in the throttle mechanism and a tri-wing bit I didn't need - but it's a Ducati part so I guess that's the deal. The throttle feels so much more natural without that slop in it.

Hi, Steve,

What exactly did you order? Did you happen to take any pics of the kit before installing it? Thanks much!

Are these available for the 2010-2018 Thunderbirds?

A pic of the kit would be much appreciated! I'm having trouble visualizing exactly what it contains and how it works. Thanks!

I ordered the kit from A&J Cycles listed in the first message up above. Brian, the owner, also posted an install video that I used instead of the instructions.

This kit is useless if being bought to fit the T120, totally different throttle assembly. Just sayin’


.

Whenever I see a bike advertised with 'a shed load of extras' I often wonder how well it handled with a deckchair, lawnmower, some hose and a rake strapped to it.
