Have 8 hrs on a 17 350 and have felt like the length of twist it takes from shutoff to wfo is quite far. I have put the quick pull throttle in that comes with bike too. I am coming from ankx250f with quick pull cam on em if grips but still.
I feel like to go wide open I have to bend wrist very far and even drop elbow.

Anyone else experience this?

Sounds like You need a bigger diameter cam

There aftermarket kits for this as well. Blake Baggett and others have used them after wrist injuries. Do a goole search.

Another suggestion is to over grip the throttle more. I do this on my 450 when i want to gain another 10hp

Was more curious if any other husky owners experience this.

New ODI grips come with a couple different cams. I'm running the stock cam but find myself wishing that the pull were a bit firmer. The pull has very little spring resistance against it.

So, I measured the pull of both cams that come with 2017 husky. The grey cam is a 1/4 turn. The black cam is a 3/16 turn. The problem you may have is your initial grip of the throttle, because any less of a turn is going to make it very hard to control the power output.
I run the black cam and turn it no problem with my badly injured wrist; which has, at the moment, 65% of normal motion.
My fast friends with 450s run the grey cam in order to better control the power thru corners.

I totally agree. I wish the throttle pull was a little stiffer. Anyone come up with a reliable way of adding a spring or know of a stiffer spring for the throttle pull?

I started a thread a while back about that topic and got no real answers other than "get used to it."

Thanks. This is what I'm looking for , still feel like it's more to turn than the odi cam I have on my kxf.

I'm surprised by that. My kxf pull is stiff and I really don't like it when jumping back and forth on bikes .

The only time it bothers me is in a rough braking section. Even though I've got slack in the cable, it still causes me to blip the throttle on occasion when I don't want it to.

Makes a big difference also how you adjust the throttle, and what map you are running together with gearing. So multiple ways of using a smaller amount of twist to get the same effect from engine.
