So I ordered an R6 throttle tube for the XSR700 and it doesnt work. It seems like part of the cam of the throttle tube gets jammed up and doesnt return correctly. I tried to sand it down to make sure it wasnt too wide. Then also shaved down some of the cam and still no luck. I even put my actual R6 throttle tube on the XSR700 and it did the same thing, got jammed up. Anybody else have this issue?

I'm not sure if this is the same problem you describe, but I fitted some aftermarket grips which came with new cams. At first I couldn't get the throttle to return, it was like the cables were binding. It was worse when at one lock than the other. Turns out I had to adjust the throttle cable free play - after that I've had no problems.

Apologies if you've already tried, but as a novice this wasn't obvious to me at the time!

Thanks for the suggestion, it's worth a try. I didn't bother because when it isn't bolted down it seems to have a snappy return just fine.

It was the same for me! I nearly went mad trying to re-route the cables this way and that... Even went so far as to email the vendor and ask if the cams were different for this vs the XSR... After drawing a complete blank, I concluded the problem must be me, so I went back to the garage and kept fiddling. Eventually I chanced upon the solution!

Anyway give it a try, I'm sure with a bit of adjustment it will work just fine. :nerd:

It worked! Thank you. Now i feel kind of stupid it was such an easy fix. But for anyone encountering the binding issue, a slight adjustment of the cable at the throttle end is all it needs.

Search in the forum, you will find the OEM Yamaha parts number. There will also some hints regarding the years, which R6 throttle tube is recommended.

The OEM throttle tube is the plastic tube with the rubber grip mounted.

It’s a shorter twist to get to full throttle, it changes the response of the bike.

The throttle tube is all you need:
Motion Pro 01-0094 Throttle Sleeve
