Foot throttle

Hello all, is there a foot throttle that I can use with a Suzuki control box? Can I keep the hand throttle/gear selector and have a foot throttle also? Cheers

Hotshot throttle should work ok probaly cheapest one out there. You will need a longer cable than the one in your throttle box. You will still use box for gear selection

Hotshot, is that the one that you have a bungee to shut the throttle?

They do feel a little like that. Part of it is that nearly everyone is used to pedals that pivot from the top as nearly all cars do, but all boat pedals pivot from the bottom similar to a VW Beatle.

Pivot at the bottom is a more natural movement with the ankle and probably more control over the rough.

I get a bit fed up with it after 10 min's or so and end up going back to the hand throttle.

Think I will put a lighter spring on mine when I get around to it.

CP Performance Foot Throttles

Watch out for import duty and postage costs though...

I have a brand new in control and I don't think it's bud quality is all that. Although not fitted yet I am disappointed with overcut lines, sharp edges, and binding. I will be modifying it. There is a man on scream and fly making improved versions

Maybe Glen you have a Friday built one.
I've had mine for about 9 (ish) years with no problems from the outset.
The build quality is 2nd to none.
