I am new to snowmobiling except for the couple or few times that I rode in '79-'80. I've been on dirtbikes, mostly MX, since '72. I still don't understand the reasoning behind the thumb throttle. I went for my first ride of the season today('04 Adrenaline 600 sdi), for about 1 1/2 hrs. I think that it is stupid that I have to take my thumb off of the throttle to put my hand on the front of the bar, then pull it with my finger, every time I brakeslide a tight right hander. What is wrong with motorcycle-type twistgrip throttles? Besides, I am in more pain in the right thumbular area today than Mrs. 00' Machz&mxz claims to be.

Well I just finally read this ongoing thread and was surprised not to read about what I have seen in magazines. You can add an additional throttle on the left hand bar so you can alternate. Has this been overlooked or is this setup been known not to function well. I would like some input on this if anybody has any on the left hand mounted alternate throttle.

Well if no one can agree on a solution then just get her a new sled with E.F.I , you can ride an E.F.I all day and never dream of a sore thumb. If this isnt feasable then get her a foot pedal like a car and this will solve the prob.
