short turn throttle kits for the RC?

anyone know of any short turn throttle kits for the RC51? im talking about something like the motionpro revolver kit or the euro racing kit, not just a throttle tube.

im already running the HRC 1/6th throttle WITH two strips from a zip tie glued one on top of the the other around the diameter of the throttle cam to make the throw even shorter but it still forces me to put my hand in an uncomfortable position trying to get to WOT.

i cant find any kits that are RC compatible although it is a simple enough piece that it can be made to work for any application i suppose. i was hoping for something to bolt right up and that comes with multiple cams so i can choose what i like best.

Robbymoto engineering makes an awesome kit. I have one on my CBR and highly recommend it. They make a kit for the RC.

Motionpro will make you a custom kit if you contact them for about 185. They will require some measurements and possibly sending in parts but will make it to whatever you want for a great price.

I also have a cycle pirates kit for a CBR 900 that may work, would just have to check the cable lengths.

thanks for the info! couldnt find that anywhere. let me know about the kit you have.

also considering using a throttle tube and housing from a ducati monster 620 as the ratio on the TB's is so different on those bikes that they use a pretty large cam on the throttle tube. from the looks of it, its a bit larger than what im running now.

the cables are very short for the VTR1000SP
I sell this active set up that you make the cables to your required length.

i forgot about the Accosato kits. those are nice. Simons looks nice and good price too.

Since the cables are specific for the cycle pirates kit, you are probably better off with either the Robbymoto, Accosato, or Simons kit.
