What size driver do you need for the two Tri-wing screws inside the throttle housing? Seems I need to round up a driver that I'll never use for anything else so I can install the darned lugs...
I just used a very small flat tip carefully, they are not in there by much.

I am still looking for the 3 blade driver itself.


I have had the spacers installed for over 300 miles now. I love the connected feeling this brings to the free play of the stock throttle tube.
Thanks from Steve B

The driver is call a tri-wing driver. Here is a link to them on Amazon, this is a nice set for a decent price.

This includes all the security bits - http://www.amazon.com/XtremepowerUS-...ng+screwdriver

Thanks! Found a mixed set of anti-tamper bits at my local Autozone. Now to tampering...

I performed this modification with the help of RapidBike USA on Saturday. Went to the track today and man I like it. Makes it easier to blip the throttle on down shift. Had to get use to the instant on of the throttle. Overall, a great mod.

I have the kit as well. Love it! Definitely makes downshifting smoother!

Does make the blip much better.

I bought the Ducati Omaha kit. Its well thought out but I can't help but to think there would be a production method which would/should make the cost more reasonable.

That being said, it works well. I too ran into the hicuup of having to take out the two tamper proof screws. Luckily, my local Ace Hardware store had a bit set which had the included tri-ish looking bit.

Just Google "security tamper proof bit set" and you'll get tons of options.
