    I just received the Heavy Duty Throttle Assembly purchased from Sick Bike Parts and think this is by far one of the best bangs for the buck (No Plastic). It is also one of the quick versions of throttles. This purchase came with a length choice for cable. I am truly impressed.
    I am not pushing this item but just wanted to let people in need know a good deal.

    Thanks SBP

    I have had mine is service just a week or two and I MUST WARN you
    The mechanism apparently transmits force a lot more efficiently and I wasn't cautioned of the danger of bending a float tab if the cable end-play threaded thingy at the throttle isn't JUST right. But they just figger I guess you're SUPPOSED to KNOW what JUST RIGHT is. I didn't, and my carb float tab bent, and the bike flooded out 50 yards from my start.

    Somebody with more knowledge can advise you on this. I wish they had advised ME. I was without a bike for a week(my ONLY transportation) And I replaced the carb thanks to the excellent delivery from a Wisconsin vendor

    Everything seems fine now. Tomorrow I 'll make a trial ride for distance

    Just curious but how did a throttle assembly and throttle cable in any way effect your float? They are in no way attached to each other? Would love some details.

    yeah i think you are confused the throttle slide only slides up there is no way that pulling to hard would bend your float tab and if your float tabs got bent simply bend em back in place

    that is unless im missing something

    We have them in stock. We have sold hundreds (not 1000's yet, but close), and honestly we are just reading this for the first time: "gunna pull up on carb to much" and "bending a float tab ". We have had no complaints about this and can't quite fathom what the issue is. The connection and adjustment at the carb are no different than stock....and it does need some adjustment when you swap because as you guys know, not all stock cables (and other parts) are the same.

    The mechanism is aluminum, yes. One clear plastic cover piece for the pulley.

    Shipping will be about $6 in the USA

    culvercityclassics summed it up pretty well and also we have some reviews on out site. All 4 or 5 stars IIRC.

    I got one of these a month ago and can't wait to put it to use. I can also tell that it's of high quality.....was pretty sure of that before I purchased it. Must be time to start another build...but then I'll need another for the next build. It's a vicious cycle, but like it.....thanks SBP, keep up the good work! .wee.

    To tell the truth my stock one works so well I can't see how a different one would work mo betta.

    SOMETHING (i am guessing excessive throttle action) forced the needle to
    low and bent the tab

    There IS a way the needle can be driven too far into the bowl by unknowingly setting it to invade the bowl too deeply, THAT is the basis of my guess

    Worth EVERY CENT too !
    the cable itself is heavier
    It's gotta last longer
    I sprayed some CorrosionX into it before assembly

    HA! CorrosionX! I've not seen that stuff for a while, but I remember it well - dang fine product & worth the slightly extra cost (^)

    Thanks fer reminding me of it, been usin PB which is pretty good but I'm gonna keep an eye out for the X ;)

    im still waitingn for an explanation as to why the throttle pull can somehow affect the float tabs

    i just cant imagine how it could happen maybe just maybe.the throttle is so powerfull it supercharges the intake of fuel, robbing the bowl opening the valve, and with all that supercharging fuel sucking in so fast, it creates a vacume and fuel rushes in so fast it shoots the flaot up like a rocket and hits the tabs with a huge concusive so powerfull it forces them past there yeild piont and they bend and not only do the bend but the bend so bad that the entire carb must be replaced

    that is the only way i can imagine the tabs bending but then again my imagination can go far

    Diagnostics is w/o a doubt the most difficult of all mechanical procedures - I suspect this was simple coincidence, that the two were completely unrelated save for moving/altering the carb orientation as there's just no way a throttle cable pull could change float position - even if the cable ripped the slide out of the top of the carb (also impossabru BTW lol).

    But hey, I been there so many times bfore lol - I mean it's logical to assume that if your bike suddenly changes behavior to suspect the last thing ya did to it... and about 99% of the time that's exactly right - it's Murphy and that pesky 1% that can really mess w/yer brain heh
