all dirtbike's have twist throttles...a throttle is a throttle, everybody would like twist throttles if they got the cooridnation...i love them, hate riding anything without them...but it's all in preferences.

my old honda has a finger pull and i definitely would prefer a twist throttle much more..... sometimes we ride 60 miles in a day and my thumb is hurtin so bad that my whole hand aches.... of course they have extenders for them too..

I like the thumb throttle over the twist, I had a twist on a blaster,HATED IT, to much forward and sideways action all at the same time, not enough control

It may too late for a response to this question, but every "two carb" atv I've ever owned has had a twist throttle added. That might explain why the guys on the smaller bikes prefer the thumb throttle?

I personally like the twist. I've got one on my Raptor and Banshee. When I raced the Banshee (many years ago) I went to the twist throttle because it gave me more flexibility in the saddle, I could move around without having to worry about my position on the grips.

I have ridden my niece's 300EX and found her thumb throttle to be very comfortable.

good point...i think the thing is dual carbs ur pullin two throtle needles at once so it's tighter...so twist is easier, single carb is always easy w/push throttle....ya see what im sayin at all or did i confuse a bunch of people?
