Benefit: Obvious, needs no explanation - e.g. less reduction in roll required for full throttle.

Disadvantages. Er, none that I can think of.

I can think of a disadvantage. A reduction in roll means it may become overly sensitive (for some people).

Just something to consider.

I thought of that, but decided not to state such as I think it would be misleading for most. I haven't found I can't put the bike at the throttle opening I want any less with an HRC throttle on several bikes, than I did with the standard tube. It's not that big a change!

....have we ever heard of anybody saying their HRC throttle tube made for too much sensitivity which caused them to change back to standard?

Thanks guys Question answered. I will give it a try and see what I think. Right now most of my riding is city commuting but that will change.

I agree with above. At first it may feel a bit sensitive, but give a week/tank and it will feel right, like it was always that way.
