Motion pro 1/4 turn throttle install

Could someone please tell me what I need to do to the oem switchgear housing to make this work on my 2011 racebike. Vortex clipons and it's a full on racebike so not worried about looks or cutting stuff. Still need to maintain the on/off oem switch though. I recall seeing someone who cut the oem cable side off.

Thanks!

Re: Motion pro 1/4 turn throttle install

That's all, cut/shave the cable portion off, removing all the wiring and components as well.

Re: Motion pro 1/4 turn throttle install

Stay away from the Motion Pro switch, it sucks and caused lots of people (including me) problems. You can either buy an OEM Honda switch (I forget which bike though), or you can do what I did and cut half the stock housing off.

Re: Motion pro 1/4 turn throttle install

I'm leaning toward what Anthony did and cut the part off the stock housing. I'm terrible with wiring anything plus it already has the keyless woodcraft bypass on it so not sure if that would complicate matters worse. The on/off switch right now is my key. Mode function doesn't work because the bikes ecu has been modded and dyno tuned to a PCV. It's got one mode and that's full on power in A.

Re: Motion pro 1/4 turn throttle install

So I went to install this kit and I must say I got a few issues before I ever start. First off I don't have much real estate on that bar with the vortex brake lever guard. With clipons the fairing upper is close at full lock either way so not much room to adjust or readjust angle of clipons. Even if I trim up the stock switch housing and slide all the way in along with brake lever perch slid in all the way it's gonna be a tight fit. Then factor in the over head cable routing of the motion pro throttle interfers with my brake reservoir. Don't like the cable routing either coming in from over head up under the top triple. To follow stock cable routing that puts the motion pro cables in a bad bend to follow since it routes over head verses stock underneath the throttle tube. I didn't start install after mock install and taking measurements and moving a few things.

So basically I wasted $150 on something I'm not going to use or willing to modify heavily to use. I'm back to easy and looks like the R6 tube may be my direction. I've read up on the R6 tube and some say modification with a dremel is required on some year model switchgear housings but not on others. I couldn't find any reference to my generation bike needing the dremel work. Anyone know if that's the case of not?

Re: Motion pro 1/4 turn throttle install

To fit my Motion Pro (with OEM switch housing cut down) with everything else on the clipon (Woodcraft), I had to remove my Woodcraft brake lever guard. But I can get a bar end one to mount it there instead of on the bar itself.

Re: Motion pro 1/4 turn throttle install

I kind of want to keep my vortex brake lever guard I have used it twice so far unfortunately and it works. I know there are other brake lever guard options that do not connect to end of clip on tube but at this point I don't want to waste any more money buying things to solve other issues.

The brake lever issue was but only one of the problems I still don't like the cable routing of the motion pro. Trimming the oem switch housing not a problem but it really doesn't free up much more room by doing that. The thing is just huge anyway. I am a terrible electrician so swapping the on/off switch I'm afraid would end badly with me. I can screw in a light bulb that's about it. I also have the woodcraft ignition delete on this bike so not sure how that would integrate either.

Re: Motion pro 1/4 turn throttle install

Did you get the older MP Revolver kit, or the newer V2 one with the slimmer throttle housing? Maybe try sliding your aftermarket clip-ons out to max width from the fork clamps?

I trimmed my stock right-hand switch on my K6.

Re: Motion pro 1/4 turn throttle install

It's the new Revolver 2 kit. It's only 1" wide. Can only go so far out with clipons due to clutch cable being to short if I slide the clutch perch out. So that creates an imbalance. Only have 12mm left on throttle side now as is with stock setup and brake lever guard attached to end of clipon.

Re: Motion pro 1/4 turn throttle install

A picture I took a long time ago but it still shows the current setup pretty clear. Just not a lot to work with there. This bike seems very compact and close with clipons, race fairings and race upper bracket. You can't see it very clear in this pic but I made a bracket to hold brake reservoir attached to forward clipon bolt.

Re: Motion pro 1/4 turn throttle install

Get extended clip ons, or get the bar end mount for the lever guards

Re: Motion pro 1/4 turn throttle install

Can't slide stuff out anymore than they are now so extended clipon won't do any good. Oem clutch cable is only so long as is. That side sort of dictates how far the throttle side gets moved out.

Not sure why you would have to still move out the clutch perch, you can use longer clip ons to accommodate the lever guards, and to allow you to move the throttle a hair out, and the clutch side grip some out. Unless you truly needed the clutch lever to grip spaced exactly as it is now?

Re: Motion pro 1/4 turn throttle install

I'm not running out of bar as is. The brake perch must be all the way in even with that big oem housing trimmed back. This made tightening the clamp bolts on brake perch a little hard on the lower bolt. I didn't like the severe bends necessary on the cables either from the over head routing.

I plan to look at this all again but from first looking at it a lot of stuff is bunched up and in some strange angles to even come close to working. I'm not sure even then after cutting the housing up if it'll even work. This just seems like too much trouble to get one benefit. I'm not racing without a brake lever guard and I'm not buying another brand to accommodate this throttle housing.

Those cables bent at near 90 degrees is not ideal either. Short crg levers on both sides so I can only have so much in separation from the perches. I run shortys because they survive crashes better.

Re: Motion pro 1/4 turn throttle install

They were lubed, and never had an issue with binding or drag. Daily ridden

I'm not questioning that but I don't like a cable bent 90 degrees. Lubed or not. I pulled on them at 90 degrees bent and yes they worked ok but I still don't like that.

Re: Motion pro 1/4 turn throttle install

For on/off power switch use one from cbr1000rr (AFAIR 2004 and up), it's slim and you can get them pretty cheap. I have Gilles Variobar clip-ons on my L3 and bought MotionPro Revolver Kit but didn't install it yet (had the same setup on my ex 09 r1 and it worked just fine).

Can you route the cables on other side of the head = less bent (if they are long enough of course)?
