Arrow Throttle Tamer?

Hey guys. I just picked up this 2008 custom with a 127" Ultima El Bruto. It's my first chopper. I really need to take it easy making turns from a stop because of the length, but the throttle is so responsive that it jumps very easily. It really sucks. I like the concept of the g2 throttle tamer as it eases the first 10% or your twist or so without killing your power--but I'm told it won't fit my bike. Does anyone have any recommendations? I have 1" bars and and older stock HD throttle with single cable but will change it all out to fix this.

Make sure the batterfly of the carb is moving freely/smoothly.

Other than that I would feather in with clutch at low speeds in low gears.

I know what he is talking about here..you don't dare let go of the left handle bar at any time while accelerating... you will definitely lose it...

I'm going to try and adjust my clutch to move the friction zone closer to the grip. Right now, if I turn hard right at very low speeds, it's too easy for me to let the clutch slip. Even with my long-ass arms. I'll check the butterfly as well.

Even on my 113" i pull the clutch in & out if i'm at slow [parking lot] speed to ride smother...
I'm pretty sure both- 120 and 127 i have would be even NATURALLY more jerky at low speed/throttle if it wasn't for auto clutch that i have on them. Nature of big engine and relatively light bike... Granted- everything else is ok[ NO ELECTRIC OR FUEL SUPPLY PROBLEM, RIGHT INTERMEDIATE JET , STICKY CABLE/BUTTERFLY ETC]

ya my 113 barks at low speed too; and when my clutch gets warmed up, it's not smooth either; it's kinda all or nothing; but hell, it's a chopper...if they were easy to ride, everybody would
