The internal throttle installation process is pretty straight forward, but can become a little confusing, especially for a first timer. The instructions most of them include are a little vague, and miss some of the finer points. We will go through the steps needed to do a proper throttle install in two segments. Part 1 will cover the throttle itself and part 2 will cover making and installing a throttle cable. When done properly, an internal throttle can really clean up a set of handlebars, and in turn, the bike it is mounted on.

In the above photo, you can see the cable housing stop (upper left), cable sled (upper right), and the body of the throttle that inserts into the end of the handlebar, as well as the set screws that accompany each item. The cable housing stop uses a smaller set screw than the rest of the items. The three loose set screws are for locking the throttle housing into the handlebar itself. All the larger set screws are 10-32 thread, and the smaller one is 8-32.

To start, you want to position your handlebar controls where you would like them to be. In this case, we are using some custom controls requested by the customer. You want to be sure to mock up both the throttle and the clutch sides together to make sure you get them to look exactly how you want them. Once you have the controls located where you’d like them, make some witness marks and then measure out how much grip area you will want / need.
