Default cbr600rr easy quick action throttle

Hi guys - new to the forum but thought I'd share something I found a few months ago

I bought an hrc quick action throttle for my 2007 cbr 600rr and when It came to fitting it I was shocked by the poor quality of the throttle tube. The lug that you clip the cable broke off as soon as I looked at it so I'm stood in the garage with the bike in bits wondering what to do.

I had a throttle tube from my previous bike (2008 zx6r) and when I compared it to the hrc part is was only very slightly smaller. The short version is that if you want a quick action throttle for a 2007 600rr (and probably the other years of the same shape) buy a standard throttle tube for the 2007-2008 zx6r and it fits straight into the standard throttle housing with no modification to anything, cable ties or risk of death in a huge flame ball.
The throttle response is much better than the standard part too

Hey Mark1200, nice to see another guy local to me, do you go to Shannonville? The throttle tubes on the 05 & 07 are exactly the same so this would work for the 05's as well. I have heard about using a Yamaha throttle tube which brings the wrist action down significantly. I cant remember where I seen it but I could try and dig it up for you if you want?

i used the ri on my 2001 cbr but it needed some filing to get it to work. looks like the 2008 zx6r would be a better option. yes my friends and i rent the shanny track some evenings and have some fun. have u ridden with the take on the track group in the past/ i road with them when they rented the track. where do u live?

I have actually never rode on the Shannonville track yet, been there many times but not riding myself. I live right in Belleville. My brother and I recently bought a 99 F4 and are going to spend the winter getting it setup. I will probably setup a project thread for it shortly. I have a 600rr for the road and my brother rides a gsxr. Have you heard of Quinte West Sport Bike Riders?

i have a 2000 f4 and a 05rr in my garage for track days only. i'm pulling the forks on the 05 to change the oil today.
r u setting the 99 up for the track ? if so u will want some rearsets as the stock ones r too low and forward. i have some used wolfcraft rearsets from my 2001 f4i. not sure if they r exactly the same as the 99's. if u r interested let me know and we can do some measurments. i have not heard of Quinte West Sport Bike Riders, but i am not from the area. i live in Cobourg.

The 99 is going to be strictly for the track. Yeah I'd probably be interested in the rear sets as I said we are just starting the bike, bought it in Kingston and he had intentions of setting it up for track but didn't finish it. I will check and see if the stock rearsets stayed the same for 99 and 01. The guy i bought the bike off told me about the quinte west sport bike riders group, it is on facebook and you have to be invited but they apparently do a bunch of track days at Shannonville, I thought you might have been out with them before.

I can tell the rider positioning on the 99 is a huge difference compared to 600rr, atleast comparing factory setups
