    Another product from Bair Products:

    Not bad, but I would rather keep a hand throttle for fuel economy, they need a medium setting, or better yet, a proportional dial.

    That's just silly, idle or full throttle? Nothing in between. Wouldn't even consider it.

    I have had no problems with my foot or hand throttle.

    All it is is a 12vdc linear actuator.... would be easy to control from idle to full bore with a little more effort or knowledge on their part.....mounting it incorrectly could jam the arm/linkage on the injection pump and damage it.... I think any machine that had cable problems has already had the newer cable installed that corrects the problem..... and at $500+ it's way over priced.... there might be $140 there in parts.... not a bad profit!!
