    Default vrod02 : Hand Throttle?

    Hand Throttle?
    Post by vrod02 on Nov 6, 2006, 11:41pm

    Had a locking hand throttle on the M38. The 7 has to have this mod as well. Anybody done this? Its great for trail rides and warm up on cold days. It was the t handle that clicked to lock and turn to release.No sudden jerks to spill bev. of choice!

    Some 715's have the option. The t-handle connects to the accel pedal with a piece of chain.

    If you live near a deuce bone yard you could probably mod one of them to do the job.

    Another option, there's a guy I've wheeled around who uses a ten speed gear shifter (yes, from a bicycle) He used the handlebar clamp to mount it on his shifter...looks like it works pretty slick.

    That's what I did (the bicycle shifter route). It works great and I actually use it more than I ever thought I would.

    DP had an aircraft style hand throttle at the National FE a few months ago. He said he got it from NAPA. I really liked it.
