has any one tried this tube ? My 2007 ,has the same problem, as all the rest of them .So far the best thing I've tried is the $11.00 dollar Crampbuster ...at close to a Hunski $100.00 , is this device going to "change my world" or is it just more stuff???? Larry.

The G2 doesn't fix the throttle return spring tension, it fixes the snatchiness (is that a word?) from just off idle. Yes, I found it to be worth it, much much smoother on take off now. Which is your issue, jerky throttle or stiff spring?

It helped the throttle on my 06 greatly. Well worth the investment, easy install. Smoother off idle roll on.

Not worth it, IMHO. I'd take it off and sell it if that wouldn't risk ruining the grips I have on it.

The PC-III did much more in eliminating the lurch.

Grrr....just ordered one yesterday. It's driving me nuts on my AE. If everything comes in in time, I'll be doing spring unwind, tube and PCIII this weekend. I hope to have a smooooooooth bike on Monday.

BD, was it a pain for the heated grips on the AE? I've gotten to where I know the sweet spot but, I'm thinking about it. After all these years It jerks enough to make me shit my pants every once in a while!! :o

I WOULD recommend it. By itself not a magic fix but, combined with the spring tension mod, throttle is vastly improved

With '06 & '07 bikes, a G2 is probably worth the investment. Also make sure throttle cable slack is reduced to help the snatchy situation... ;)

Power Commander. The III is now discontinued so if you are buying new you'll need the V, but you can find III's for sale used all the time.

No big deal to fit the G2 with the heated grips as long as you MARK THE WIRES AND LOCATION OF THE HEATING PADS BEFORE DISASSEMBLY! I didn't and getting them back in with the correct alignment/orientation for the throttle wind up was a major PITA. Took two or three disassemblies before I got it, would have been a no brainer if I had marked them first.

Edit: Also, there is a difference between the AE and A G2 tubes. I think the AE's are longer? Be sure to tell the guy if you have an AE when you order them. He's tuned into it so he'll know what you need.

BTW, lots of traffic on this particular G2 subject

Oh Yeah! I did that early on. I couldn't believe how much slack there was in the cable when I got it to the house! :unsure:
