Do they do one for a left handed throttle?

Just thinking of Saul like.

On my mk 2, I made counter balance springs to fit on the carbs, I doesn't make it much lighter but when you have the throttle open in a set position, ie on motorways etc, it takes very little effort to hold it open, in that position. Iv'e done over 100,00 mls since I did mine.   Let me know if you want more info.

I've just bought this - rubber covered with stretchy rubber strap, doesn't stick out as much as a Crampbuster so may be less of an issue when pulling on the brake lever.

I modified a crampbuster to go under my thumb on the inside end of the twistgrip. Shortened it too so it wasn't in the way so much.

Better 5 minutes late in this world than years early in the next.

There are also big differences between makes of cables. A friend af mine has a Guzzi (of course..) trackbike which is really, really superlight on the throttle grip. I haven't looked into his Dell'Ortos yet, but on the throttle cable it says: 'Shimano'. 

Sorry, don't know wheres and hows, but I would guess you can but these by the meter or foot and roll your own, so to speak.
