Decent throttle
« on: 23.11. 2017 15:58 »
Part of my restoration will be a new throttle. There is so much cheap alloy rubbish about I wondered if anyone can recommend a solid made chrome throttle for a single cable. Thanks. 7/8" of course.

The genuine Amal ones look good, thinking about getting one myself;

For all you do for others Julian the least I felt I could do was to take some photos for you.
Mine is already fitted but waiting for some new grips.
The rotor tension is applied via the substantial screw and locknut and inside (like the old days) a folded over spring.
Throttle sleeve is a one piece steel affair.

Just ordered these grips to go on mine  -  https://andover-norton.co.uk/en/shop-details/18021  .
Is one grip usually larger than the other or does one have to be stretched over the throttle ?
