    Details

      The Handy Throttle™ can be used on 4-wheelers, jet skis and snowmobiles that have a standard 7/8" handle bar and a thumb throttle.

      All 4-wheelers come with a thumb throttle. If you ride one for any extended amount of time your thumb becomes sore, achy, and sometimes numb. Holding on to the handle bar, a person must apply pressure on the thumb lever (thumb throttle) to accelerate the vehicle. The faster the driver wants to go, the more pressure he must apply to the throttle.

      The Handy Throttle™ allows anyone to quickly and easily switch from a thumb throttle to a twist throttle. The new Handy Throttle™ does not change the mechanical function of the thumb throttle. Therefore the driver can revert back to the factory throttle by simply removing the Handy Throttle™.

      Not only is this a benefit for sore thumbs, but it also assists people with arthritis and similar diseases, because they can usually grip enough to use the Handy Throttle™ when they may not be able to use their thumb to accelerate.

      The Handy Throttle™ is made of a high quality ABS plastic that withstands extreme temperatures and is resistant to UV rays. Once installed, the Handy Throttle™ can be covered with a rubber grip that is supplied with each Handy Throttle™.

    No more thumb!
    This throttle converter is just great!!!!! I'm very happy with it. Great little invention. I really hated using my thumb for the throttle. Just take your time lining it up so it pushes the thumb paddle to get the most out of the throttle.

    Easy Conversion
    Simple design, reasonable price and easy install made thumb to twist throttle conversion on a Polaris 500 Sportsman an easy choice. You will need some spray adhesive for the grip and a few basic tools otherwise all is included. The throttle is a little quick coming off of idle and operating at slow speeds in tight places takes some getting used to and a bit of finesse. However accelerating at speed seems quicker and easier than the old thumb throttle. If you find the old thumb throttle tiring or painful this product is a low cost effective way to convert.

    Great option for those of us that like a twist throttle
    I've never been much of a fan of thumb throttles, probably because I've been riding motorcycles for over 49 years. I had been thinking about putting a motorcycle throttle on my Polaris Sportsman when I came across this little gem and decided to give it a try. My expectations weren't very high, but I went ahead and gave it a try. Installation was very easy and took about 15 minutes. I'm very happy with how it turned out. The throttle is very smooth which I wasn't expecting, very similar to the feel of a motorcycle throttle. I've done a few good rides with it installed now and I'm super happy with it. The only thing to be aware of is to glue the internal piece adequately to the handlebar or it will come loose and the angular position of the throttle will change. Also, put one of those "Grab On" grip sleeves on your other grip to make the diameters of the two grips about the same diameters. Recommended!

    Does this throttle return by it self if you release it?
    Gary R on Aug 24, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: Yes it returns by itself very easily! Since the Handy Throttle works by pushing against the thumb throttle on your machine when you release the handle the spring in your machines thumb throttle will push it back easily.
    Very easy to use and saves the fatigue on your thumb.
    Does this twist throttle spring back when you release it?
    michael b on Feb 1, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: If you glue it in the right position works great
    Does this throttle require a MX style grip with larger I.D. grip?
    Mike A on Sep 20, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It replaces your existing grip. It is a fairly large diameter grip, so I put one of those slip on grip sleeves over the top of my left grip so it would be about the same diameter as the new one.
    Will this work on a 2010 Can Am Outlander Max?
    Scott M on Mar 8, 2017
    BEST ANSWER: It fit my 2009 Honda foreman but returned it because it does not spring back when you release throttle.
    Can I use heated grips with this item ?
    Gary R on Aug 24, 2018
    BEST ANSWER: I’ve never installed heated grips before, but the throttle has a fairly thin walled grip sleeve that slides over the unit. I would think that you could install a grip heater underneath it. The diameter of the grip is fairly large compared to the 7/8 diameter handlebar so I’m not sure if the heating element would go around the entire diameter. I hope this helps.
