Is it possible to replace the factory thumb throttle with a throttle similar to a motorcycle throttle? After 15 to 20 minutes of riding, my hand starts hurting and I believe it would be more comfortable to have it that way? If someone has done this or knows how to do it, please let me know! Thanks!!

Upgrade your ATV's thumb-controlled throttle with a motorcycle-style, handle-twist throttle and say goodbye to a sore, numb thumb on those longer and colder rides. Simple design mounts on any four-wheeler or snowmobile with standard 7/8" handlebars in just five minutes without replacing complicated throttle bodies or running new cables to the carburetor.

Built of high-quality ABS plastic, it's made to last. Optimum control is ensured by a textured rubber grip that fits over the Thumb Twist assembly.

I got one of the handy throttles last year for the wifes bike, I paid around $40 shipped for it. I will see if I can find the link. It is a great product but is still a pain to use. it is big and bulky and made her wrist hurt more than the thumb throttle did. It will work great for trail riding, but is not user friendly in the mud, it will get you in a bind quick.

It is made that way for a reason. The twist throttle is not safe for ATV's
You can change it if you want to but most people I know who have done that eventually change it back.
