1050 throttle tube installed!

I've never had a bike w a shorter throttle. This 1050 tube was totally worth the 10$ it cost used. I put it on my track bike in all of 5 minutes took it down the street and the bike feels so much different with the quick throttle. It is definitely my favorite mod next to going down one in the front on a bike.

This weekend should be interesting between it being my 3rd track day on the 675, 1050 tube, and dropping a sprocket upfront. I predict getting very use to the rear having some action.

Thought I'd share

It is a great mod.

And I hate to burst your bubble... but you could have had a brand new 1050 throttle tube for about $10 from the dealer.

Let me add with a larger r1 grip included at least worth another two dollars ;-)
The dealership near me is new to triumph and 5miles from an army base nothing is cheap there.

I just bought the r1 throttle sleeve, how do you like it? Haven't installed it yet cause my bike is at the shop for a recall

Seems okay almost bought some other grips but I figured this grip is still good why blow 20$. Seems to be firm and have good grip much better than the oem(08) on the clutch side.

I put one on my Daytona Street but found it a bit too sharp for the road. It's now on my track Daytona.

Got it out on the track today and thought it would be an issue mentally with throttle control even more so because it was 40* out, no such issues. WOT was quicker and easier I adapted very quickly almost right away.

Summary: just do it.
