G2 Throttle Tamer Tube

G2 Throttle Tamer Tube

$69. 95


I’ve in no way been shy about saying that fuel-injected KTM 500 EXCs are very rushed right off idle. Yes, fuel injection is awesome, but with 500cc of highly tuned engine under foot, discussing a rough trail while standing can cause the bars to jerk and the right hand to inadvertently twist the throttle a tresses more than desired, causing the 500 to jump forward with a burst of unwanted and unplanned-for power. The G2 Throttle Tamer incorporates the nonlinear ratio between hand throttle rotation and throttle body opening (or carburetor slide opening if that is what you are using), which means the cam on the Tamer requires a slightly farther rotation initially to achieve the same throttle body opening placement, as compared to a stock throttle tube. Once you reach around half rotation of the Tamer it ramps up to achieve full throttle opening at around the same amount of twist as a stock throttle tube.


The Tamer will be machined from 6061 aluminum here in the USA and uses self-lubricating Delrin bushings at each end of the tube. This takes away any aluminum-to-aluminum get in touch with and makes the G2 tube turn effortlessly. If you like your stock throttle tube pull but want the ultimate in smooth rotation, G2 can make throttle tubes with your bike’s stock ratio pull as well. The Tamer fits inside the stock throttle casing, uses the stock cables, and installs in just a few minutes. For those who operate full-wrap hand guards the end cap is easily removable.


After a few hundred miles of using the G2 Tamer Tube on the 2014 KTM five hundred EXC, I really like what it does towards the power delivery right off idle. Setting up the Tamer is like remapping the particular ECU for a mellower initial power delivery (which you can’t do on the 500 EXC). In stock cut, navigating rocky or slippery landscape requires a surgeon’s touch on the throttle to not spin the rear wheel. The G2 Tamer allows easier power over the power, helping to save energy and maintain rear wheel traction. The problem to the Tamer is you have to rotate the throttle tube farther at first to get strong, snappy off-idle power, so if you love the hit from your bicycle, the Tamer is not what you are searching for. I preferred the stock throttle tube only in deep fine sand where instant bursts of power help keep the wheels on top of the particular sand. I prefer the G2 Tamer to the stock throttle tube 93 percent of the time, and I love how smoothly it rotates. It is not only for off-road bikes, they work on those big, fast 450cc motocross devices as well. G2 also makes a throttle tube that increases throttle wire pull for those 125 riders who want wide open without a lot of right wrist rotation. —Adam Presentation area
