So, I finally got around to pulling my '03's throttle stop so I can hack it down. I pulled it out, and it has obviously already been cut down. I called my brother (who I bought the bike from) and he said he did not do it -- so, is it possible the dealer did this? ... not really important, but the thing was cut down to 10 mm shaft/15mm total (!) -- just above the threads, which is much shorter than you all are recommending. My question: can this thing be cut too short? I turned the throttle without the stop in place and the throttle stops at full throttle... so what is the point of this stop???
