Throttle Limited

Hi, a friend of mine was asking how he can disconnect the throttle limiter. I told him I did see some pics on the interweb some where. Has any done this or do they have any pics or better a video please?

Hi Randomhero83, is this process as easy on the Vulcan S as it is on the 650 in the video? Some bike models using this engine (apparently) need to have the tank and airbox removed etc before delimiting can occur. Thanks for any light you can shed on this, and for your time in reply. Cheers!

It is even easier, remove the Seat to unplug the loop back adapter and remove 1 screw that restricts the throttles ability to open all the way, I needed to undo the brake line holder to get my screwdriver in there, it is a saftey bit screw so you will need the right bit with a hole in the middle. when I get my bike back from the exhaust shop I can take some Pictures.

That's really kind of you - I'd appreciate that very much.

What sort of exhaust are you getting? I just had the TBR one put on - it's SO good.

I was originally going to get some custom slash pipes made up for it but I have opted to go with the off the shelf model with a HPC coating made by:

Services & Products - Motorcycle Exhaust Professionals

They have a Video on the site of what it sounds like.

This throttle restriction doesn't apply to US bikes, correct? This is part of the learners program in AUS?

That's correct, AAGoldsmith, it's just a restriction that Kawasaki have applied in Australia to make the bike legal for those riders on learner and provisional licenses (and to grab a slice of that market share from Honda, Suzuki and Yamaha). The thresholds are based on the power to weight ratio.
