Home made throttle slop fix

When I first rode the Pani on the track I couldn't get past the delayed throttle response compared to other bikes I have ridden.
It's not so noticable on the street but on the track it was very frustrating. I like to have minimal slack in my throttle so I thought I would see if I could fix it. The next few pics show how it can be done. Cost was my time only.

Below is the amount of freeplay


I machined up a piece of plastic to fit the gap.


And all fitted


Good thing is that when the throttle is put back together the plastic is actually held in place by the surrounds, it physically can't go anywhere. I've had the mod done for three weeks with no problems including three track days.

what if it turns 90 degrees and stays in there with the long side?

then you're stuck at 20% throttle...

What do you expect, he's Australian, we Kiwis would have used a bit of #8 wire in there and it would work just as well !!!! I think it will be fine as there's nowhere it can go, maybe a bit of super glue on it to ensure it doesn't move?

I'm all for less slop, but not at the risk of that piece wedging itself somewhere. At the very least glue that sucker down with a plastic weld.

2 words - risk/reward.

Use Jarel's option.

Would you trust an open throttle to glue? I wouldnt.

Jarels option is so cheap its a no brainer dude. Dont risk your bike and life for a few buck's literally.
