Throttle Cable Zip Tie Mod – CBR250R

By | February 22, 2014

I wanted to have WOT (wide open throttle) on my CBR250R with less “twist of the wrist”. After looking around, I noticed other people with Ninja’s have done it, but not much information for the CBR250R, so I decided to do it.

The purpose of this mod is to allow you to acheive wide open throttle via a larger diameter throttle tube without having to twist your wrist as far.

Stuff you will need

  1. Zip tie (I used one I had laying around)
  2. Superglue or other strong bonding agent
  3. Screwdriver (use proper size)
  4. Sandpaper
  5. Alchohol wipes / cleaner

How to do it

  1. Cut a zip tie 3 inches in length, then what I did was bend it into a “C” shape and heated it with a lighter, then ran some cold water over it to maintain the shape.
  2. Remove the throttle cable housing, you will have two screws on this, then remove the throttle cable and return cable.
  3. What I did then was clean the plastic, and then scuffed it lightly with some sandpaper.
  4. I then used superglue along the rough size of the zip tie and glued it down onto the throttle tube in the center (where the cables run).
  5. I then re-attatched the throttle and return cable, and re-assembled the throttle housing, then screwed it back together.
  6. I checked to make sure the throttle operated smoothly and “snapped” back and didn’t get any binding.

I now have around about an inch / quarter turn to get WOT.
