Question about throttle tube upgrade

I'm looking into changing my throttle tube to a quick turn kind.

I've sen comments about G2 throttle tubes, but they are kind of expensive at about $60.

I'm interested in learning more about getting the R6 stock throttle tube, as they are usually available for about $10.

When getting the R6 throttle tube, what year throttle tube should I get? Late model one works, or does it have to be a certain vintage.

Thanks

Can't tell you for sure, but they are different. Some are 1/4-turn while others are less - like 1/5-turn.

This one may be the right one, but I can't guarantee it - https://www.amazon.com/Yamaha-2C0262.../dp/B005C59NO2

MotionPro makes one as well.

A cheap solution is to use a zip tie to make the cam on the tube larger. Im looking to do this in the summer.

I'm using this one on my bike: Yamaha R6 Motion Pro 01-0094 (around $10 @ Ebay) It's used is several R6 models/years

No modifications, uninstall the original tube, remove the cap at the end on the new one, put everything together and adjust the cables' free play. You will love it.

Note: you may need to "shim" the new throttle tube to work with your current throttle grip. Just use some electrical tape, that will do the job for you. I always add a couple of racing wire loops to be extra safe * tie-wraps work too*.

Pura Vida!

Thanks for the info on the Motion Pro Part#. Just ordered one for just under $10!

Just wanted to report back that the swap to an R6 throttle tube went smoothly and easier than expected.

I used the Motion Pro 01-0094 throttle tube as suggested. It was a direct swap. No mods other than the throttle tube itself was necessary.

The cams on the new throttle tube is noticeably bigger than the original. Can't wait to test it out.

Cool. Let us know what you think of it.

What is the rotation (1/4, 1/5, etc) of the new one?

The rotation is just around 1/4, if not a bit shorter.

Love the fact that full throttle is easier to obtain.
