PRO GuIDe Domino grips and throttle controls Grips for vintage bikes Italian specialist Domino has added to its extensive range of throttle cables with a new fitment for the 2015 Yamaha R1. Compatible with the stock controls as an OE replacement or with Domino’s own ZM2 controls. From state-of-the-art late-model parts to fitments for classics and vintage models, Domino’s range is huge and in stark contrast to their controls for Yamaha’s iconic and class-defining R1, also seen here are examples from the “Domino Archive”. These two new ‘vintage line’ throttle controls have para rubber grips to meet the demand of many lovers and restorers of the sixties/seventies vintage bikes. Real “cult” products, they are already available in “Commandos” style cap or chromium plated – seen here with Domino’s (separately available) vintage style grips. Also available is a new throttle tube for 2016 and up 4-stroke KTM 250/350/450 SX-F and Husqvarna 250/350/450 FC models with interchangeable rings that allow the replacement of the original grips with all aftermarket fitments.
