My scrambler is restricted due to me only having my A2 license, the restrictor is a throttle stop on the throttle body.
I'm wanting to take the scrambler to my local sprinting track some time but i want the engines full power so the plan was ride to the track, remove throttle stop, sprint and see how fast she goes, re fit throttle stop and then ride home...

But i can't find the bloody thing! I've also been told the bolts that hold the throttle stop in place are tamper proof bolts but being a mechanic i know how to remove them and i also have them at work so i can replace them without anyone knowing!

Once you remove the air filter can you see it? Or do i have to remove the tank to see the throttle body?

The throttle body is under the air box in the middle of the 2 cylinders mounted into a rubber hose that feeds the inlet on the 2 cylinders

It can be seen from the side

They may have restricted the linkage - which you may be able to see?

The throttle body is directly behind the air box - so if you need to get it out the airbox needs to come off.

They may also have restricted the diameter of the throttle body - reduced air flow or the throttle or could have done it all electronically. - or a mixture of all of them.

Thanks Simon, when i have some free time next at work i'll have a proper look.

I believe there is a plate where the throttle wheel is on the side of the throttle body, this is the restrictor stopping the throttle from being opened all the way. On the handlebar i only have 1/4 throttle!

I think it's just the throttle stop because they had to Dyno the bike when adjusting the throttle stop to ensure it was set properly.

Do you know how easy it is to remove the air filter box?

Thanks!

Actually - I may have this wrong..

I have looked at the manual - (which is really confusing) and the throttle body may be INSIDE the airbox.

Best thing to do first - is open up the airbox which is easy - 12 or so screws from front - then see what you can see!

If the airbox needs to come out - then its not a 5 minute job - tank off etc.

So hope you can see what you need from INSIDE the airbox.

I fitted a Throttle Tamer (thread on here somewhere with photos) but found my throttle cable too long to adjust at the grip. I had to do it at the throttle body.

How difficult is it to remove/adjust the throttle cable from the throttle body?
assuming changing the tamer is ranked maybe 3 out of 10 (10 being the most difficult)

Once you know how to remove the cable guide clip from the throttle body then I'd say 5/10.
