Plan on installing one this weekend. If you have done this install, I would like to ask a few questions. Did you do the install without pulling the fenders and fuel tank? Dealer seems to think it can be done from the side. Can you get to the dust cover on the throttle plate to pull the cable off? Any other info would be greatly appreciated before I get started on it. Anything particular I need to look out for. If it can be screwed up, I am the one to do it. :)

Thanks for the feed back. I know there are lots of cons and pros of going to a twister. If there was a way to put more tension on the thumb version, I would be willing to try it. But after several hours of riding and especially rough stuff, my thumb gives out. I hate how easy it is to give it throttle. It's just to touchy and always blipping it. Seems like I have to make an effort to keep a light touch on the thumb. Hoping the twist takes some of that out. Because of that, I tend to stay away from the xx and drive the rhino. I didn't go with the dual gasser after reading some of the posts about the thumb not being located in a good position. Thanks again to all. If you have anything else to add, please join in.

DBergstrom- I need a suggestion if you don't mind. I have the plastic off and down to the injector body cover. I seems to have one screw on the top right corner and some tabs holding the bottom in place. I have tried moving the cover around and up and down and not sure how to get the tabs out. Do you remember the secret to getting the tabs undone and getting the cover off? The frame looks as if might be in the way of getting to the cable. Did you remove the whole body from the engine as the pic. in the manual? Was hoping not to have to pull if all the way off.

On a second note. I have intended asking you for a long time what part of the country you was raised? I taught a David Bergstom many years ago and was just curious if you might be the same. It would be a long shot but just wondering. Thanks. d

Thanks. I managed to get the dust cover off without breaking off the tab. Should be downhill from here...

Thanks Doug. Didn't think there was much of a chance that you would be him but thought I would ask. He was one of those you just don't forget the name and he was a good quarterback in his younger days. I would like to maybe impose on you sometime and ride with you and your group around Vegas. One of my sons will be moving to Vegas in the near future and I am sure we will head out that way sometime. Never ridden around there but have ridden at Glamis and around Quartzsite, Az. In my old age, I doubt if I could keep up. Last year was the only time I have had the xx out there and rode mostly trails and a little sand at Glamis out of Yuma. Usually take the rhino so the wife and dog can ride. Take care and thanks again for the help. d
