Hi Guys.

I am wanting to have a faster/shorter throttle response with out buying a special kit for my 2014 gsxr 1000. Can it be done?

Re: Throttle

Re: Throttle

No, I don't think anyone does that.

Either you do the R1/R6 throttle mod, or you buy the Motion Pro unit, which is well worth it.

My first concern is the cable falling off

Too much work. Can you just do it for me & tell me the answer?

Re: Throttle

+1 on the above opinions of the zip tie method. That's a Shervin mod. People have also made a bushing from PVC pipe. You're playing with the primary engine control. You could die if it goes bad.

The R1 mod is midway between OEM and the R6 mod. R1 is bolt-on. R6 needs some moding of the housing.
