lefty throttles?

i recently received a left hand throttle from a fledgling company looking for feedback on their product and design. i have never used one and i am debating the install.

95% of my riding is mountains and i can see where this may be a useful accessory, just looking for some pros and cons before installing and testing.

They are great until they stick and you go zooming off into nowhere... or hit the throttle instead of the brake...

I tried one, after using it for a few rides, I felt it seemed like a good idea, but wasn't as practical as I thought it may be. I took it off. You may love it, some guys do. Wasn't for me, though...

I don't have one on my sled, but I did get a goldfinger lefthand throttle for the four wheeler. Had to go that route after dislocating my right shoulder and find myself using it quite often...it's nice to give my throttle thumb a rest now and then.

i will attempt at another website link so you can see what it is and how it attaches. kinda slick concept in my opinion.

long story short, this kid was and always will be my "go to" guy for any thing cable associated. he has a natural knack for making things right the first time. hes done me right many times. he gave up for whatever reason, i encouraged him to get back into the swing of things, and he has jumped back in with both feet.

Dual Throttle Kits.
