I've heard you can use the pro twist for a Z400 but you have to get a cable, the Z400 cable wont work with the predator.

Are you really sure you want a twist? Had one on the race mod before, now I run the HPD billet thumb unit. Under certain riding conditions, with herking and jerking on the bars, the twist can be kinda dangerous. Just my 2c.

now your wrist will get sore! pick your poison - not trying to be a dick rocket but when i ride bike all day (with twist throttle), my wrist can become sore. if you do hard terrian riding it can be hard on your wrist. thats just my 2cents, but you know best what type of riding you do and how you would like to spent your money.

p.s. i'm not trying to be a smart ass just trying to help :)

If you ride enough, your thumb will condition itself in a hurry. Ride as much as you can and youll quickly notice the difference.

Good luck hoss!

Rocket, i prefer a twist throttle. I have only been riding ATV's for about a year. up until that i was riding and racing sport bikes. I have never had a wrist problem with a twist throttle, but i have 15+ years of using one. my 250R had a twist on it when i bought it and i loved it. I just bought a predator about a month ago and it has the thumb throttle on it. I am not use to it so my thumb gets really sore and tired. I guess what i am trying to say is you will have to get use to what ever setup you choose. If you have not used a twist throttle much, you will have a tired and sore wrist after riding. Same with a thumb throttle. i personally feel that i get better throttle control from a twist.

Those thumb savers do work great! I have one on my 2 yr old daughter's Dinli Dino 50. She doesn't have a sore thumb anymore.

Rocket, you'll have to go on what you prefer. During a season of harescrambles, more than once, the twist contributed to almost nasty situation of rolling on the throttle accidentally. There's lots of experience here to learn from, weigh the options and go from there. As long as you can go ride, it's all good.
