Re: Quick turn throttles??
I'll explain. The MP kits are NOT 100% bike specific. They ask for your make and model to see if you will need the added stop/start switch and to see if your bars are the correct diameter. The bike specific part comes with your cable lengths. These are the bike specific parts.
What is NOT bike specific is the length of the entire kit. With my bike, 05 R6, the length of the required stop start switch and the kit itself is longer than my stock handlebar. Aftermarket heli bars are required, and those aren't bike specific either. Furthermore, the stop/start switch cable length is a good six inches shorter than the stock length on my bike. Additionally, the pin that drops into the handlebar is on a different location for the stock and MP switches.
Most, if not all of the fitment issues stem from the added Stop/start switch. If your bike doesn't require one, then chances are it will be a perfect fit. However if yours is a bike that requires the switch, you had better be prepared for quite a bit of modification.
When I finish my next project I'll be doing a write up on my install of the kit. All in all it's going to run me close to $400 because of all the extra parts I had to buy. I refuse to let the throttle hang over the end of the bar and I refuse to have heli bars that sit above the forks.
Hard work yields great rewards, but idle talk leads only to destruction.
