Picture yourself diving into a left hand turn, you slide off the seat to the left to kick out the tail to roost your buddies your arm is already extended you are coming out of the turn and you are using the bars to pull your weight back to the seat. What happens? you twist the throttle to wide open without even thinking because you have been so used to the thumb throttle for so long and you find yourself bottom upwards flat on your back with 300lbs on you. If quads were supposed to have twisties they would have put them on from the factory, RIGHT??? I thought so. but hey if you want to do it go for it but please be careful and ride it alot before you adventure out balls to the wall.

It probably won't fit.The frame's are different.And it's a bad idea to try to weld a different mount on a fuel tank.

You wouldn't weld on the tank, you weld a mount on the frame.

Chris Borich races GNCC with a twist throttle. It takes a while to get use to it.

True but his quad has no where near the power 300 has. he needs two twistie throttles one for each hand.
