I use a Vistacruise...I flipped it around so the little piece sticking out sits between the throttle cables correctly and the activation lever is facing forward.....then I shortened the lever down to 1/2 inch and also cut it narrower so I can easily use my index finger to flip it up to engage and down to disengage without removing my hand from the grip. I also cut the flange off my grip so it wouldnt cause any interference issues.

My drinking team has a racing problem !!

So how do you adjust the T-Meister once it's on?

I'm being lazy, I have the directions out in the garage. But I'm not sure if reviewing the installation is going to clue me in to how to snug it in a little deeper. Cause right now it still works ok, but I can tell in a few more months it's gonna be slipping at high revs (when the vibration helps the throttle spring retract) and I'm gonna have to adjust it.

In the past I tried (gently) bashing the bar end with a rubber mallet. It didn't work. What needs to happen is the whole assembly has got to be snugged in closer, because at lock now it's juuuuuust tight enough to hold the throttle, and it revs down the teeniest bit sometimes now, which it never did. And it never used to go all the way to lock before.

So I'm gonna give this advice to people who have yet to install it - get it so that it contacts the grip at about 1/4 turn. Because when I put it in, I think it was probably a full half-turn (maybe more) before it started to tighten up against the grip.

And that won't last. Anyone who has repositioned it successfully let me know. I can't remember the exact installation process, but there Loctite involved, and maybe that's keeping the thing from going in farther. And I don't want to extract and start again. I'll figure it out. When I do I'll let ya know.

Post how you did it if you get it readjusted. I put one on my 08 and it worked well. After I changed grips it wasn't tight enough and I just haven't gotten around to figuring out how to loosen it to move it around so that it will work like it should again.

Nope.

Charlie, We don't want tuna with good taste. We want tuna that tastes good, smells good and puts out.

I just scanned the instructions that came with mine into a pdf for you. It's for an '08 - I don't know if different years have different procedures but they're probably the same.
