Is it possible to adjust the throttle grip position?

So I was reading about Nicky Hayden's wrist injury and how he's had his throttle grip adjusted for his hand's much smaller range of motion. Very cool.

I usually make a tiny adjustment to my throttle grip, as in move my hand clockwise over the grip, if I know I'm gonna pin the throttle (not all at once of course) out of a hairpin so as to make it easier to access the bottom 1/5th of the throttle. Anyone else do this?

So is it possible to have the throttle moved clockwise 3/8"?

Yep. It's possible. Maybe one or two people have done this on the forums.

Why not more? Because majority of us can't justify the steep price. Don't waste your time or money unless you plan on racing. In this case, fly by wire is not your friend.

Well no official racing on my to-do list . Just wondering.

I thought it could be a physical adjustment with the grip itself, not so much to do with the ride-by-wire system

I have asked this question numerous times in different ways. The answers I get vary from getting an RS throttle similar to, I believe, Kope. Other answers are no it cannot be done, and then I have someone that offered Rexxer flashes (I believe it was Rexxer) that said they can do it as part of the flash.

I hate how long of a throw this bike has on the throttle, well actually, all bikes I've owned have too much, but they were cable throttles and very easy to fix... RbW is not.

Is this not similar to what Race mode does anyhow?

yep, some guys want to change the throttle's mechanical characteristics: i.e. clearance, progression, length of displacement.

and there is a another group on this forum regularly asking whether the grip could be exchanged with a blinged one that is still thin...

for both cases nobody presented a real solution in detail.

I am wondering whether this could become another nice Ducati1199.com project

No, race mode takes away the "smoothness" of wet and sport. Probably has to do with advancing or retarding the timing a bit coupled with throttle body tension.

But same throttle grip distance between closed and wide open "aka pinned". As far my own testing showed haha.

Well MotoForza dealership service guy said there is such a thing as "quick turn" throttle grips that give you full throttle in much less space, around 1/4 turn, BUT not available as he knows it, for RBW. I'm researching this new-to-me term. More to come.......

related question: has anyone been able to get rid of the "play" in throttle grip? It's really annoying if you are on maintenance throttle in a turn and hit a few bumps. No matter how much a relax my grip, it will play a little.

I pinned, took out all the slack and used Rexxer to remap my throttle position to a little less than 1/4 turn to Full. feels much better.
Thanks from TricoloreSF
