already comes with a 1/4 turn

put an R6 or R1 tube in the house for reduce it to 1/5 or 1/6. I have the 1/5 on mine.


03 R6 5SL-26240-00-00 $7.30 1/5th
01 R1 4YR-26240-01-00 $13.05 1/6th

Don't mean to jack the thread (since we are on the 1/4 turn throttle subject)
what did you guys use on the 01 600 for a 1/4 turn throttle
the 01 600 already comes with a 1/4 turn (in fact, every modern sportbike I've ridden or seen has one).

If you want to make your Gixxer shorter, use what I spoke of above

91' FZR 1000 throttle tube, purchase the left side grip and your set with a 1/5th turn throttle and a decent set of grips for track duty.

Thanks!

Those are Yamaha part numbers. S&C 'might' have em, but I wouldn't count on it. Just give a call to Chip at RonAyers, I've let him in on this hot item and I think he's starting to stock em now. I've bought a bunch from him and they've come in quick.

Hey Adam,

You know if there are any models of GSXR these won't work on?

i know it'll work on anything 2000 or newer. Can't confirm it, but I'm pretty confident it'll work on the 96-99 models as well.

Prolly will, since the 2000 600's are SRAD's too.

read in the product review that the r6 throttle mod won't work with the 04 600/750 due to the diameter size of the tube. haven't tried it myself though. will try it from my buds 03 600 soon.

what's confusing though is yoyodyne.net says their 1/5" throttle works thru all the gixxer models, including 04. dunno how those would work and the r6 mod (which worked to 03 and previous) won't on the 04's/05's.

it may not work on stock clip on's due to the diameter of the bar but if you race you have the standard race bars so yes it will work

So is the diameter of this tube different then the stock tube on an 03 600? i'm thinkin of just gettin both of them in and see which feels best to me.. i'm guessin the 1/6th might be a touch extreme for the street, but then again, it might be great.

Over the weekend I did the ol 1" PVC pipe mod to get the same effect. Cut a small circle off the end of a true pipe, fit it over, cut to size, file down as needed.
