    Posted: 06 May 2018 at 13:22
Hi all 

just fitted some Renthal grips to my 2000 mille and as most of you may know the tube is moulded/shaped which the OEM grip fits perfectly unfortunately the Renthal grips don't, I don't really want to start shaving the moulding off the OEM throttle tube if possible, but I've been reading that the 05 R1 throttle tube may fit and gives a 1\5th opening could anyone confirm this ?

thanks again 

Paul

It's certainly either R1 or R6 can't remember which offhand as it was years ago I looked into it.

Also the year may come into it as well, perhaps carbs V injection ?

I'm sure someone who's done the swap will be along shortly and confirm.

Looking forward to the next track day

The r1 tube only makes a small difference, the r6 tube much bigger. Both tubes are shorter than the aprilia one so you might need to cut down the grip a bit or use the Yamaha one.
