Why you even looking at race stuff?!? Youre slow as ****!

Jk, for the price meh stock cables plus the r6/1 throttle tube mod mod is cheaper.

I can't find the pics, but what I did was just took my throttle tube of my bike. Then took a bigger sized zip tie and cut it to length to wrap around the tube where the cables touch. And super glued the zip tie to the tube. Which makes the tube bigger. Works great too I can deff tell a difference. As to how much I used to turn the throttle to now.
It's a cheap, quick way to shorten the throttle turn.
I also used a lil needle file to make a small grove in the zip tie where the cable begins to touch it. I didn't want to hurt the cable.
I'd recommend doing it if you're bored have a Zip Tie and want a shorter turn.

That site is funny. Listing antifreeze under the Buell XB series items...

I had put an R6 throttle tube on my SV650 previously, perfect fit.

Does it work as well on the XB? Does anyone have a sale link for one thats known to work?

I put the R6 throttle tube on my XB. It does shorten the distance to WOT a bit.

Oh man, Any tubes that fit with out hacking up the controls?

If they fit inside the stock controls, they won't give you any difference in throttle throw.

The whole point is to make the tube a larger diameter so it'll pull more cable with any certain degree of twisting..... the larger diameter doesn't fit inside the stock controls.

IF there is one "in between" the stock and R6, you'd be limiting the improvement.
