A couple of my friend use twists throttles, but they don't have a 700xx... They seem to like the twist, but not for me... too much like having a loose hand grip (uneasy feeling/feels un-secure/not solid)... But, that's my take on the twist throttle.

I dont know about the ones for the XX but the YFZ450 I had before had one on it when I bought it. It was a Pro Motion one. It was pretty poorly made. Very cheap plastic through the whole thing. It cracked through the main body of it. As for the twist motion itself, I didnt like it at all. In the rough stuff it made for a jerky throttle control. I got rid of it right away and put a thumb throttle back on

I have a dual gasser on mine, meaning it is both a thumb and a twist. I don't use the thumb at all, but got one in case other people ride it. It is all about preference. I grew up racing dirtbikes and stuff, and know how to handle the "loose grip" feeling Roadkill is talking about. I've learned to hold on with my knees and stuff a long time ago, you'd see when I ride I use my legs to hold onto the quad. Anyway, I like it a lot. I've had motionpro on the 450's, and they work alright too. All the ones you will find will be plastic, and will turn a little bit before you actually get to the gas, no matter how tight you try to make it.

I have a Motion Pro twist throttle on every quad in my garage, I feel they are a quality product. I had one break, but that was because the quad flipped at speed and landed upside down on the bars, can't blame the throttle itself for that one.

Using a twist is very rider specific, if you have never used one on a quad, I wouldn't recomend one. Like crwh45, I have always ridden dirtbikes, so a twist is natural to me. If I had to ride with a thumb throttle, I would quit riding, that is how much I hate them.

As Doug and Chuck stated; I've been riding bikes since I was a kid and am used to twist throttle and would never go to a thumb throttle but again it's all on what you are experience with. I've done lots of trail riding and beside one or two times due to sharp turns, it never bother me.

I also have a Motion Pro the previous owner actually put it on. Both the thump and the twist are there but I def prefer the twist. I think it's my favorite mod on my quad. I have had dirtbikes, quads, and streetbikes, but I really feel at home with the twist.

I feel the opposite to this . I tried a Can am DS450 with thumb throttle and hated it. Coming from dirtbikes I always use a twister. The Motion Pro is better quality than the Streamline one. Tried both , the cable on the Streamline was junk.

I don't mind twist throttles on street bikes, I don't like twist on anything else
