Really light throttle

Recommended Posts

I recently rode a buddy's CRF250 and I noticed how much stiffer (and better)the throttle action felt. Compared to it, the throttle on my bike is just... blah. It takes a lot of throttle control coming in to corners and such because its just way too easy to twist. I have been thrown over a berm or 2 because of this.:foul:So I'm thinking maybe the return spring or whatever is worn out? It is an 8 yr old bike afterall...

I tried looking for a new one on rockymountain but came up with nothing. Can someone help me out? Do you think its just the way all Yamaha's are?

Never heard of anybody ever complaining that the throttle was too easy to twist. Usually most people want that.

Never heard of a throttle spring wearing out either. If you do want to replace it though, give www.sudco.com a look-see, or call them. They'll have your part.

Look to see that you have 2 cables going from your throttle to your carb. A common mod is to remove the return cable for faster throttle action.

Its hard to explain...

I would like to have a little more resistance when I twist. As of right now it takes almost no effort, and its dangerous.

Its not the cables either cuz I just replaced those.

Come to think of it all the FCR carb'd Yamahas I've rode have been like this. This has included 250fs, 426s, and a WR 450f :thumbsup:
