does it matter what year bike I get the R6 throttle tube from, and do I just need the tube or do I need the the throttle tube housing to go with it?
Scoobinator is right- its #8. Its R6 throttle tube, not cablescoobinator, are you sure it's not #9? so I am actually replacing the grip.... I thought it was a cable all this time.
It's $8.95 on RA now +$9 shipping. The local dealer here wanted $29 +TaxNope, that was exactly the part I ordered from RonAyers when I installed the R6 tube on my 2007 SV.
Part # 5SL-26240-01-00
I paid $7.46 for it about a year ago.
I was going to peel the Yamaha grip off it and put my original SV grip on so they match, but you'll see they're pretty close, nearly identical grip. I never bothered.
