Quick turn throttle mod?

Just curious if anyone has done their own quick turn throttle mod? Ive read on a few other forums of using a thin slice of pvc and glueing it to the throttle tube to make the diameter larger. Just curious if anyone has done/heard of this.

can't say i've heard of just glueing it. i don't think i'd trust that. if you keep an eye out you can find the HRC ones for about 40. I think someone on speedzilla was making them pretty cheap as well.
