Is this a slow action throttle? EVO 300 4T

Appreciate if someone can tell me if I really have this 'slow' version of Domino throttle installed. I marked the black visible part by the red arrow.

No that's just a black plastic washer type, peel back the grip and see what colour it is under the grip.

Is it off a road bike MX/Enduro? .....buy a proper domino trials throttle with a black tube for slow action or a white tube if you want quick They only cost approx. £13.00

WOW

This is a standard Beta 4T throttle tube and housing.  The Domino throttle tubes are interchangeable from slow and fast.

The metal housing is the stock throttle housing.  The throttle cable is not connected to the slide on this Mikuni carb as it is a CV carb.

The throttle cable is connected to a cam which in turn is connected to a butterfly valve inside the carb.

Learning something new everyday.. not a 4t person so never looked at a Beta 4T in detail ... thought it was just the usual ebay scrambler bike owner edition like the  competition trial bikes that are fitted with Moto-X handlebars and given beautiful paint makeovers.

As a side note.  Apart from the fast or slow throttle tubes one can also mess with the cam that controls the butterfly valve. 

Not for the mechanical challenged though.  Just change the throttle tubes i.e. fast or slow.

You can fit an amal twist grip if you want a slower action.

Hi

My 2013 4T has the standard throttle, which I found to be to fast for my liking. Under a quarter of a turn from nothing to max revs.

I tried a Domino slow action but this was to slow and required more than 180 degrees of the grip to get to full throttle.

The slow action item was not adjustable for cable length like the original, and to get it to work I has to use the other cable hole on the carb.  You'll see what I mean if you look at where the cable attaches to the carb.

As a better compromise I adjusted the stock item.  I trimmed off some of the plastic on the throttle tube.  If you take the throttle grip apart you will see that the throttle cable runs on a raised piece of plastic on the tube.  By reducing the diameter of this, the cable winds more slowly as the grip is turned, and so the throttle speed is reduced. I cut it down to produce a gentle curve for the cable to run on.

I got it to about 110 degrees of turn for full throttle, which suits me.

I now have a spare, used once, Domino slow throttle if you would like it.

If you want a slower than stock throttle on beta 4t easiest way is buy an amal 80/200 throttle body. No need to swap or adapt cable simply put the nipple on carb end into the other hole on the cam. 5 min job in total and makes noticeable difference

Thanks for so many suggestions. Actually, I just wanted to be sure that I use the standard or fast throttle (not the slow one). Because I don't like the idea when you have to get used to the behaviour of the slow version and then learn the throttle control again once you are ready for the fast one.

I've checked the color of the plastic throttle and it seems to be grey, so I hope it is not the slow version.IMG_20180119_191144.jpg

Hi luckydim,

In my opinion, this Amal is one of the better slow action throttles, I've got it fitted to my 2016 4T. It's aluminium not plastic and transforms the bike.IMG_2181.JPG

As mentioned, that is the stock 4T throttle.

 Mine says ‘Domino’ cast on the bottom.   I have no clue if the plastic Domino housing tubes will interchange (I have some around, so I could check some time)
