Revert back to thumb throttle

I just picked up a 2009 Rancher 420 and the previous owner replaced the thumb throttle with the a motorcycle style throttle. After a few test drives I’m looking to switch back to the thumb throttle. Unfortunately the previous owner did not have the original thumb throttle. I’m new to ATVs, and I am having trouble find a replacement thumb throttle assembly. Any suggestions? Any advice on switching this back?

Use this link to pick out your model. Then, you should be able to find the throttle assembly you need.

I have one just sitting in the box off a 2004 Recon since it was new. She's all yours if you want to pay actual shipping cost. Then you'll also need to buy a Motion Pro or OEM brand replacement throttle cable too.

Which exact 420 Rancher model is yours?

2004 TRX400FA (Rancher 400AT)
MotionPro twist throttle kit
12" handlebar mounted light bar
rear rack wheelchair carrier
Cycle Country 48" plow w/ KFI hybrid mount
Champion 3000 lb winch w/ synthetic rope
23" Titan 489's all around (saving clutch)

2011 Grizzly 450 EPS

Others in the family: '04 TRX250TE, '85 TRX250 Utility (X2), '05 TRX90, '06 TRX500FA, '95 TRX400FW,' 88 TRX125

Thanks everyone. I ended up finding a used one on EBay (hopefully it works out, the seller seemed reliable). I really appreciate the other leads though. I had not come across either Power Sports Nation or partzilla in my googling. Those were exactly the type of place I knew had to be out there but hadn't found.

Don't forget to get a OEM throttle cable as the twist throttle cable will be different. You may also need a new grip for that side.

If you lived in the north Houston suburb area I would have given you mine. I took mine off when new. The original has about one hour on it. And yes, you will need a grip with a smaller inner diameter.
