Quick turn throttle?

Ok, who has a quick turn throttle and how do you like it, particularly for track?

For those who don't, why not? Bad idea on a liter bike without TC?

I had one on my '04 R6 but that didn't have anywhere near the power/torque of my 1198 motor. I don't have TC so I'm hesitant to put one on my Duc. But I hate having to roll out my fingers to get to WOT. Adjusting my grip is no good because then I don't have a good angle for turns, especially chicanes, and I don't want to have to change my grip 20 times per lap.

Thoughts, experiences?

I bought one from Sato, not installed yet but I'll give you feed back when it happens

I currently have the motion pro on my current 848. It's okay

On my old 848 I made my own custom cam throttle with an easy roll on and a bit more progressive throttle ramp.. I really liked it

It was similar to the Kyle design which is really nice

Mine left Kyle right

I was thinking the same thing , but like you I'm not sure if I want to do this with a high torque bike.

I feel bad after reading this post... I too decided to do this upgrade a couple of years ago; I bought the MotionPro kit, but still haven't installed it!!!

Looking at some of my previous videos though, I feel that I have become proficient at adjusting my grip on the 848 as needed, but still think the quick turn throttle probably is the right way to go... I'll let you know my thoughts when (and if), I get mine installed this year.

I bought a Podium racing throttle tube. Very good quality, all fits. That said, I recommend a proper quick turn kit (not progressive) or keep it stock.

I had the Podium Racing one and the quality was top notch. I am back to stock, and all I do is track. Personal preference and I am happy.

I used the throttle tube of an R6 Yamaha. Not really a quick action as such but a lot better than stock.Ramps up quicker at the end but not so touchy at the start. Lots more control when doing wheelies lol

Sure I'll be the guinea pig... I have so much work to get done... I really am starting to worry a bit... because I've made so many changes...

I'm glad you posted I didn't realize there was differences I figured they were all the same.

I have the Corse Dynamics Quick Turn throttle on my 1098 and its fine. I've had it on the track twice with the new throttle, but was dealing with some high RPM clutch slip, so not sure I can claim to have given it a full evaluation, especially in regards to a traction control problem. But the movement seemed shorter and progressive in response.

I also have the Corse Dynamics and think it was a huge improvement over the stock. No more finger rolling and wrist bending for WOT and it seemed to eliminate the jerk from closed throttle to open throttle in mid corner transition.

Stock ECU? Thanks for the feedback on the QT. The
Microtec on mine smoothed out the off-idle throttle but I would still like to eliminate the finger roll. Also, do you have TC? No high side issues?

Hey randomtask! I have the DP ECU with the Arrow comp system and K&N comp filter. I have an '08 1098 so no TC so it's all by feel lol. But the Dunlop slicks stick like glue!! The DP ECU really helped with low rpm bucking and jerking. I've also never had my TPS reset! D'OH! It's a 2 hr drive to nearest dealer so I swapped it in and it worked decent so just rolled with it. I should probably get it done.

Thanks, I'll have a look at the CD QT. Just switched to the Dunlop GPA Pro myself from Pirelli. Looking forward to trying them this summer with the different rear profile (190/60)
