Yes, yes; we both know this but I hate trying to crank my wrist to get WOT...Last time out on the "R", what I thought was WOT was not; didn't notice until I went WOT...

Interesting; the entire box or just the top portion? Box I assume.

if i remember right, loosen the nuts that hold the cable housing in place. Then you can easily pull the cable ends off the throttle body cam. When ya put em back, check first the pull/push are located correctly.

Do you have any dealer in Europe? Because the cost of the throttle tube + shipping + customs and tax is aprox 200$, and that is way way over the limit i'm prepared to pay for a tube.
For example, a plastic HRC throttle tube+ HRC throttle housing cost me 60 last year at honda importer in SI.
Besides, I really like to make as much things I can at home, one is the fun of doing it, and the other that my budget just isn't enough for my racing, if I have to buy everthying. On a 600RR I have a home made a fast throtle, frame sliders, fork sliders, swingarm sliders, raised clipons, ais block-offs, rearsets, pegs, Bazzaz TC light,.... I was really hoping, I'd be able to do the same with my R6.
