Throttle Tamer Tube

What is a throttle tamer tube? and is it effective? I hear it is suppose to give the bike a smoother feel as far as throttle. . . is that true? Let me know what you guys have heard?


another question, how how RPM's do you ride at before you shift? what is considered "RIDING HARD" or "BEING HARD ON YOUR BIKE" just wondering what everyone says. . . Let me know

Here is some info. Basically smooths out the initial throttle response, making it less grabby. Have not really heard anything good or bad about it. Don't even think i've heard of anyone using it. Does not seem worth 80 dollars to me, even if it does work.

To me riding hard is not letting the bike warm up before riding.....blasting the throttle everywhere before the bike is up to temp, constantly hitting the limiter. Just being rough on the throttle. No reason to be slamming open the throttle on the street.

Have to agree with GTS, Riding hards is -Waiting for the bike to warm to operating temps.. Then finding a curvy road.. When you get back to the house -your worn out.. and the tires are worn from rim to rim(No chicken strip)
Being an idiot /a squid -over-reving just, plan inconsiderate of your equipment...

Glad this throttle tube topic came up. I know people here have them, I've seen them listed in their sig's and as a mod on a 'for sale' bike. But I haven't heard anybody talk about if they like them or not. I could be interested, I thought the video that gts455 posted was pretty decent. It looks great on the drawing board.
Is it worth it or not?
I'd like to give it a try, it could have advantages when your doing a lot of riding thru traffic...

i wonder how far the full twist is though....sounds like it lengthens it more then stock. Sounds ideal for commuter bikes, who don't see the track and deal with a lot more riding through the city/traffic.

Yea, wouldn't want even more travel, but shorting it up a little would be ok with me. As long as it smooths rather than gets even more abrubt. Seems like that would be the challange of that design. Having a cam to alter the rotation, that is.
my 2 cents...

Come on Mike, let's hear it. I have no experience with these....it's all speculation. I just don't see this worth 80 dollars, am i wrong?
