does anyone have a z400 with an edelbrock? if so is the throttle very very stiff? i just put an edelbrock on my z and the throttle is so stiff, i can only ride it about ten mnutes and then my thumb is so tired, i cant push the throttle anymore. any help would be greatly appreciated. oh by the way, i e-mailed edelbrock about this and did not get an answer!

Have you tried one of the throttle lever extenders? I had to use one on my old 400EX and I still use one on my Grizzly because of stiff throttle levers. However, my Predator and my Rincon have very nice throttle levers so I haven't needed extenders.

One guy I know with a Z400 and the full Yosh 433 kit has a 39mm FCR carb on his and uses a Honda thumb throttle, but then another guy I met with a 453cc Yosh Z400 managed to make the stock throttle work with his FCR.
