Twist Trottle

Do any of you guys have a twist trottle? I am thinking of getting one. Any time I ride for extended periods my thumb gets soar. I have alot of riding time on Dirt Bikes, so the twist trottle sound like it should work for me. I have read that other don't like it, but I wonder if its because they just don't have any experience riding with a twist. What are your thoughts.

I have a twist, I love it. I would never have another quad with a thumb throttle. I grew up riding dirt bikes, so it seems natural to me. I am sure there are others that will disagree, really a matter of preference. If you do a search on this site you will find more threads on this subject.

I don't have a twist... Tried my friend's quad with a twist and it didn't feel natural to me. But then, I didn't come from a dirt bike background.
So if you come from a dirt bike background, the twist may feel more natural for you. In the end, it will always come down to what feels right for you.

I have a dual gasser throttle, w/ both thumb and twist. Thumb for when/if others ride. But I love twist. Only problem is just like on a dirtbike, when you get really fatigued and you hit a bump, it's hard to control it LOL.

I am the same , I put about 1/4" freeplay on the twist throttle to stop this.
I also come from a dirtbike up bringing , could not get used to the thumb throttle.

may be a dumb question, but how are you running a twist AND thumb throttle? I like this idea.

Edit: never mind, i just noticed you said dual gasser. I didnt realize that was the company.

I do not like the way the thumb throttle is so touchy on the 700. I thought I would get used it but... I bought a twist throttle kit from Cabelas which was a mistake. I never could get it installed right. Finally returned it and want to try one from Motion Pro or will take a look at the Dual Gasser you speak of. Can you tell twist throttle is any stiffer than the thumb? Or can it be adjusted? It just seems that the thumb one is so touchy I am always blipping it on the rough stuff. Any ideas on stiffening up the stocker would also be appreciated.

The dual gasser setup has both, thumb and twist. You can pick what you want when you want. I like twist for long rides, thumb for tight spots
