IIRC MP offers an orange a progressive-rate "RR" throttle cam. Long-throw on the bottom that becomes a shorter-throw quicker rate afterwards.

Only with the V2 kit. The original kit does not include this.

I still prefer the largest 50mm reel over all the rest, including the new RR one.

The quick answer, yes, it is.

The OEM throttle has such a long throw that is requires me to readjust my wrist out on the track to get to full throttle which is super annoying.

The throttle twitchiness that the OP refers to can be corrected with an ECU flash and will no longer be an issue, even with the largest 50mm throttle wheel.
the r6 oem tube has a faster pull than any other mfgr. There may be something wrong with your wrist

I had a problem with opening stock throttle 100% without adjusting grip, but changed my technique with how I hold the throttle. I now operate throttle like I'm using a screw driver with elbows pointing out a little more.

Re: Is quick throttle a must for you?

guys, i ended up buying the white motionpro throttle wheel which is progressive. only done one track day since it arrived and didnt have time to instal it.

what i did do in the interim was to try to sand down the initial part of the red throttle wheel that comes in the motion pro kit - my own version of a progressive throttle. its worked so well that im now giving thought to doing the same to the yellow (50mm) wheel which, Ebster, scares me - tried it once and its too jerky for corners for me.

Indeed it is, but its still too long. I believe the OEM reel is 35mm compared to the Kawi, for example, which is 32mm.

Still too long for my liking and I love the feel of my MP 50mm. Easily worth the small price I paid.

Re: Is quick throttle a must for you?

If you take your right arm and extend it straight out in front of your body, make a fist, then point straight in front of you with 1, 2, or 3 fingers, and then rotate your wrist upward, most people will only be able to rotate their wrist ~60 degress which is much less than 1/4 turn of a throttle's rotation which is 90 degrees. To get the full 90 degree rotation through your wrist, you will have to adjust your grip on the fly.

Chillin'... while the Lord watches over me!

I love my R6, but...there's no buts...

Re: Is quick throttle a must for you?

once I bought a quick turn throttle I was very happy with the results even on the street. it's personal preference I guess. too bad motonpro's rev2 is a piece of shit. the rubber boot keeps cracking open from using shitty materials.
have to switch over to domino.

Re: Is quick throttle a must for you?

Really?

Is this a common occurrence with the MP Rev2 because I'm switch to a quick throttle and fine tuning it with a custom tune by me?
