Any good thumb throttle alternatives to Urmosi? I’d buy one but they are $200+

I’ve seen some billet aluminum copy cats but not sure if anyone has experience with them.

First of all, the Urmosi is awesome! Lol. I get not wanting to drop the money on one though. We did a group buy a few years back and got a better deal but its still pricey. I have heard the honda thumb throttle is a better alternative than the oem, but have no firsthand experience with that swap

So it's worth the price for the upgrade you think? Is it easier on the thumb than stock? That's my main thing. Stock is hard on my thumb. Thanks

It is much better than OEM by far. I can ride mine all day, then hop on our other one with OEM and 10 minutes in I am ready to give up and go back to mine with the Urmosi.

For me, its totally worth it. The joint where my thumb connects to my hand would get so sore that the only comfortable positions were at idle and wide open. As @morphrider says, now i can go all day with the Urmosi. The group buy saved us all $50. We got 5 forum members to go in together, with as many new members as we have you might try to do that again! I was able to get the pro version for the cost of the base one, or the guys that got the base one got it for well under $200. "Urmosi group buy" to see the thread

My thumb never bothered me, I bought the Urmosi because of it's flat cable side, to better fit my custom controls setup, but it is a great throttle.
It has good adjustment too, up/down and 3 positions in and out.
Move the lever back and it gets even easier to push, great for lazy cruising, and it adjusts back in seconds.
There are alot of parts, and all high quality, so I can understand the price.

You should look at the kolpin handy throttle on amazon for about $40. I have installed them on all 3 of our atv’s and my wife and i like them. Takes about 5 min. To install and you can still use the thumb throttle with it installed if you wish. Highly recommend them. See youtube for easy install.

Any chance on another group buy in the future? I need two for my pair of 22 700s.

Probably. It only takes 5 units so your already 2/5 of the way there by yourself! We have alot of new members in here that might be interested so try starting a group buy thread for them and see if anyone bites. What do you think @morphrider ?

That’s a pretty good idea. I can start a thread again later in the week. I can reach out to Urmosi and see what the deal would be for the 5 or more scenario.

I’m not sure if this is common knowledge, but raptors have had 2 different thumb throttle styles. I’m not sure which years had which, but the one is significantly more comfortable than the other. Mine is an 09 and came with the less comfortable kind. I believe the crappy style was 09-12, but not 100% sure. I swapped mine for an 07 throttle and it is so much nicer

If you look online, the different styles had different shaped top covers. The first pic is the one you DONT want

My thumb used to get so sore after a day of riding, after the swap I never think about it
