My bud and I both ran Motion Pro's on our YFZ's and they sucked. First time he rolled his quad it cracked and he had to replace it. My biggest complaint was how short a rotation it had. You were ethier full throttle or idle, it was very difficult to really keep it in mid range. I was going to change to the YZ twist throttle but I sold my YFZ. I haven't really shopped around for any other brands yet since I can't get my LT-R for another year, but Motion Pro sucked.

My 400ex has a motion pro and it had it when I got it (so I don't know which one it is) and I love it! On mine the rotation distance is adjustable and hasn't let me down yet! :eek:

Correction I had a motion pro twist on my 400ex with no problems then I wrote "hasn't let me down yet!" and broke the throttle cable 2 days later lol! figures! Now I am trying to find the correct motion pro twist throttle conversion replacement cable and it is not easy supposedly there are 4 cables that they list for it no pics on the individual cables to match it up to mine and they are special order parts so if I order the wrong one I can't return it but I think (I hope) I ordered the right one? we'll see lol! :evil:

Try the suzuki one for the RMZ 450 mx bike. It basicly has the same engine but with carbs. Maybe it will work.

I would assume the length of the cable would be different since it wont go into a carb on the r450

Motion pro makes a kit that includes a new throttle cable and grips. I ordered it last week and just received mine from them today. I think it was about $65 shipped. It may have been less but I did not pay attention. They shipped it out within a day of my order. I have not installed it yet but figuring that the plastic and tank needs to be removed to make it easier to route the cable, I would say it is going to be less than fun to install.
I will get to working on it in the next couple days.
