    Throttle Tamer

    Hi can someone confirm that a 40-4F-130 THROTTLE TAMER TUBE fits a 2016 Crosstourer. MandP list this one for a 2010 to 13 model and I think the 2016 model is the same. Perhaps one of our friends in the USA might be able to shed some light on this as I think this is were they are made
    Thanks

    Hi Dens,

    If you give the folks at G2 Ergonomics a shout (the manufacturer), they will confirm your model for you.  I  did this for my 2014 model and they were really helpful.

    email is: street.tech@g2ergo.com

    Cheers,

    Jon

    Hi FZ1 thanks for your quick reply. I have sent them an email
    I had a 2012 Crosstourer and the fuelling was good but the 2016 one I have now being Euro 4 is snatchier in comparison so I hope a Tamer should sort it
    Thanks

    I have the 2016 VFR1200X USA version with this http://www.g2ergo.com/store/g2-street-tamer-throttle-tube/?fueid=77784&qid=4795

    Fits perfectly and definitely tames the jerkiness down quite a bit. You have to give up OEM heated grips though. However, I wasn't too impressed with them anyway. So, I went with this heated grip solution and love it (Just don't use the shrink tubing-skit it)! Also went with these grips as it give the hand a lot more to hold on to AND also helps even more with throttle control! :-)

    the below image looks lousy and washed out but the grips are quality and I may get a 2nd set in case I ever need to replace them. They were hard to find as I tried a lot of grips and these are awesome!

    Hi I emailed Ergonomics as suggested by FZ1 and got a swift reply with the info. I ordered one and promptly went for a weeks holiday in the sun and when I returned there it was sitting on hall floor.  Great service
    Now the fun starts , being a tight git I have to try and remove the Oxford heated grip from the original throttle tube failing that I will buy a replacement one. Any ideas? I'll maybe cut the tube out  :087:
     Hope it fixes the jerkyness

    Hi I have finally fitted the throttle tamer and I have to say it has transformed the fuelling at slow speed. Around 20 to 50 mph over uneven surfaces it is a lot smoother with no hint of jerkyness. I feel it is expensive for what it is but I can't recommend it highly enough. Perfect  fit using original cables etc and easy to fix on the bars
    Problem solved  :047:

    Why can't you use the heated grips

    The Oxford heated grip was super glued to the original plastic throttle tube therefore hard to remove but I purchased a replacement grip and used that instead. So all good , no jerkyness and warm hands
