Anyone here run a thumb throttle on their bike?

Want to get the 2019 YZ250F or KTM250SXF and wondering if I'll have any issues/difficulties mounting a thumb throttle.

Looking for advice on getting this working (not opinions on if thumb throttle or twist throttle is the better option. I have my reasons, I race quads and not going to be switching back and forth between twist and thumb).

I have known 2 fast vets in the last 15 years who used thumb throttles on their 450’s. I see no problem. Won’t a thumb throttle from a quad bolt right up?

Freestyle rider Tom Parsons rode at X Games this year with a thumb throttle because of a surgery on his wrist. He got it set up on a KTM. Check out his Instagram for videos and photos.

You read my mind! Never seen this one. Exactly what I was thinking.

Should..

But don't want a nasty surprise after buying a brand new dirt bike. Especially the YZ which has the TB on the front I believe..

I have a buddy that I ride with that has one, but it's a two stroke so I'm not sure if it would help you.

It is a straight forward swap, I know a couple of guys who have done it. I raced quads years ago, I never had an issue going back and forth. I think it is more mental, a friend of mine was running a thumb throttle for a while on his bike and finally went back to twist. He told me it was in his head.
