Yorkie - thanks for reply on the other post. I've ordered a throttle grip and the LHS grip for an 07 Versys of evilbay. I ordered both grips because ... here's my first question ....I got my bike with Renthal grips .... is it going to be easy / possible to remove the Renthal grips and swap them over to the Versys throttle tube ? If I can't swap the Renthals, at least I'll have matching grips for both sides if I just go with the standard ones from the Versys.

Second question ... what is the SAFE way of cutting the cable outer to obtain enough slack ?

As always .. many thanks .... am looking forward to having a shorter throttle action :-)

The rubber grips aren't to hard to remove, slide a long thin screwdriver under it and then twist the screwdriver while pulling the grip off.

I have trimmed the cable outer while doing this mod on a zx12, I used a small hacksaw carefully, the hard bit was the cable end cap, I can't remember if i mullered it or not now though. :lol:

The throttle mod will feel really strange for the first few miles, then your brain and hand get used to it, after that you will not notice that your wrist doesn't ache as much as it used to.

Please will forum members put their bike model letter, & 1 or 2 after their Profile Location. eg: Your Town & B1,2,3,4 C1,2 E1,2 F1,2
As all zx9's are all slightly different, and I get fed up having to ask which model & number, as year may not be accurate.

I think Postimage are having problems , the links / pictures are still there they're just not visible/rendering , they should start working as postimage fixes whatever problem theyre having

Thank you sir.

I'm trying to decide if I should take advantage of tomorrows warm front and do this mod, or ride the bike. It's been cold here in the valley of the sun. 15C It went from summer to winter in 2 weeks with no autumn to speak of.

Just done this and I found I had to chop the plastic locking nut off the E1 Throttle cable and then slacken off the adjuster at the cabrs to fully off to get it anywhere near as slack and springy as it was prior to the mod, not sure if this is standard on on every model for this mod but it certainly helped in my case.

Just have to test it now :D
