You know you can get half twist and quarter turn twist throttles? I was thinking, is there a thumb/push throttle that you only have to push half the distance to usual, in order to make it flat out? If not, do you reckon you could make one? what do we all think?

Cheers guys

Change the cam profile in the thumb box and that should do it. Would guess some epoxy then shome shaping. On a side note, quarter turn twist is the way to go.

well if there is anyone that wants to donate a throttle for this experiment I will do a write up on it if it works. I have access to a machine shop at work if I need it also.
