    Very nice! I’m actually a little jealous of some of the parts you have. That quarter turn throttle is really that good though? @sdm1

    @smalls1000

    Yes the throttle tube is the best mod for me for 2 reasons. When I was in HS I broke my right wrist playing baseball so my wrist movement is very limited. 2nd it’s WOT in just 1/4 turn. For the price of 7th USD I would suggest everyone try it. If you don’t like it it’s cheap and easy to replace.

    @admin @74demon

    I ordered stickers over 1 month ago and still haven’t received them. Post office is different here. They don’t deliver to your house. They send a card telling you that you have received something and you go pick it up. If customs can make money on it they notify you right away if not then it might sit there a month before you get the notification. Welcome to the Philippines.

    @sdm1 wait so it was 70 dollars? Did you just need the throttle tube and reused your cables? Is this a stock throttle tube off a r6?

    @smalls1000

    It was $12.00 USD sorry I said $7.00. Yes I used my cables just had to give a little slack from the adjusters to get it on. You will have to cut the end of the tube off as its solid on the end. I also had to shave the plastic locks from the tube itself in order to get my grips on. Mke sure you add just a thin layer of grease before installing the tube. Total maybe 30 minutes if you have all the tools needed.
