What kind of modifications do you guys do to your throttles that keep it constant while your riding a no-hander wheelie?

I don't do them, but I know they turn up their idle so that the motor won't bog down when they are riding the rear break.

What do you guys set your idle at? Somewhere around 4000RPM?

Most local shops carry them. Mine was purchased for $31 and would never think of not having one now. Don't use mine for the no hander, but great to be able to ride left handed giving throttle hand a break.

Most of the stunnas I know, the above average ones anyhow, turn up the idle and do not use mechaical devices to set the throttle.

Best of luck!

2500rpms....any higher on a 929 and the idle does funky things and if you crash it doesn't drive away from you like it does at 4k rpms.

it's all about balance and being gentle on the rear brake.
