SKU: g2-dirt-tamer Categories: ,


G2 Challenge:  Offer one throttle set-up for best overall performance in all off-road conditions.

G2 Solution:  The Throttle Tamer.

The Throttle Tamer incorporates a non-linear ratio between hand throttle rotation and carburetor or throttle body opening.  The “pulley”, or as we call it, “cam” pulls the throttle cable as the rider rotates the grip/tube.  By altering the conventional, circular shaped cam, a vast improvement in control is achieved.

The Throttle Tamer has a cam with a reduced radius initially, which requires a slightly farther rotation to achieve the same carburetor or throttle body opening position as a stock throttle.  This slightly longer pull makes a HUGE difference in control as the power is rolled on and the rider searches for traction.  The radius increases or “ramps up” after ½ throttle to keep overall rotation requires to reach full throttle at or near stock rotation.

    Performed EXACTLY Like Advertised – Great Customer Service Too! I actually had my KLX450R up for sale to downsize to a 250 due to the abrupt throttle response in the tight stuff as well as tired hands and arms. The G2 Dirt Tamer totally smoothed out the “hit” making my bike much more controllable, able to maintain traction and a pleasure to ride. Super fast shipping and fantastic customer service too. I highly recommend G2.

    Works great ! I love my Husaberg 450 now . Very smooth with the G2 Throttle Cam , 400 cam . Before the 450 was a handful in the single track ,now its very smooth !

  3. Rated 5 out of 5


    Excellent! My feelings on it are pretty positive. I currently have the 300 cam on it and I am thinking I wont even try the 400 for a while. My bike is a 2011, so no “snatchy” throttle like earlier models. I did have about 3000 miles of off road with the bike prior to install and now have about 200 after.

    Pro- it does help a bit for the off idle creeping. Here again it was not excessive prior to install. where it shines is standing riding (which I do a lot of) in the rough stuff, if I am being beat around and twitching the throttle a bit-its not getting herky-jerky.

    Con- really not any “cons” it does take a little getting used to when on gravel roads and doing a lot of twisting in and out of the turns. Gives it more of a abrupt power band feeling (which is fine). I assume it is due to the cam design pulling more cable after a 1/3 turn or so.

    Fit- was really really nice ! I owned a fab shop so I am a little picky on fit and finish- these guys got their act together ! excellent workmanship – I mean EXCELLENT !

    Would I recommend it to others – Yes , but like cool aid flavors (ie: motorcycle brands/oil/tires) every one can make their own decision based on their own experience, I am just stating my experience and satisfaction with the product.

    We ride year round, mostly dirt and adventure dual sport riding between Nevada-Colorado and I like to promote good products.

    I trail ride in the mountains of West Virginia and the G2 Throttle Tamer has made a significant difference in controlling my KX450 on tight trails. It took me a couple rides to get used to the shift in cable pull that changes at about about 1/3 twist. It is not that the bike takes off like a power band kicking at 1/3 throttle, but does change.

    The quality of the throttle tube is top notch. It took about 20 minutes to install and fit perfectly. I highly the G2 Throttle Tamer this to anyone trying get more control over a large bike.

    Installed the Throttle Tamer on my ’09 TE 450, best improvement to the bike I’ve made so far, made the bike much more controllable on tight trails and “whoops”. Total install and adjustment took about 1/2 hr. This is a great product! and its made in the USA!

    I have installed two Throttle Tamers to date; both on KTMs. My 990 Adventure has very poor mapping coming off idle making it “snatchy”. My KTM 250 XCF-W, though carbureted, utilizes an aggressive accelerator pump with a short throw to wide open. It too is “snatchy” coming off idle. Hard to hold steady throttle at very light engine loading. In both cases the Tamer eases this behavior. Does not “cure” either bike, but it helps noticeably. They are extremely well made and very easy to install.

    My crf450 was just too snappy for me, especially offroad. It was just too much work and would wear me out. Put the g2 on and it’s heaven. the best mod I’ve put on my bike and you can swap cams in minutes.

    Highly recommend.

    I am really happy with the Dirt Tamer. It smoothened out my YZ250F’s throttle tremendously but the bike doesn’t feel any slower to me. If anything I am a lot faster now because I have better throttle control. It will be the first modification I will make if I decide to buy another dirt bike.

    Smoothed out the throttle action on my KTM 450EXC, making it far less physically demanding to ride – I like this product.

  10. Rated 5 out of 5


    This product is great!! Well built and does exactly what it says it would do, tame the throttle to a manageable point!

  11. Rated 5 out of 5


    The ultimate in throttle control with a Rekluse and a Lectron on my Husky WR300.
    The 400 cam works great for me in the tight woods as well as on open fast tracks.
    Thanks G2!
