Re: HRC throttle - is it that much quicker ?
Not a good idea for anything but a drag bike. When you make the distance it takes to go from closed to wot less, you also lose fine control. In 90 deg of throttle turn, you move the throttle plates essentially 90 deg. 1-1. Now make 72 deg of throttle move 90 deg of plates. Less fine control. 45deg of throttle turn 2-1.
I remember reading about Duhamel's bikes. He likes the 1st 45deg of throttle to move about 36deg of throttle plates, the 2nd 45 deg moves it the rest to wot. This gives FINER control in the transition off closed throttle. When do you use this? Yep, leaned way over in a turn when you DON'T want a lot of throttle, really fast.
