Left Arm Dissability

I have limited use of my left arm/hand and need the left switchgear swaped over with the right and vice versa. I have a zx6r ninja f3. Can i just move them and use the throttle housing as the choke housing and vice versa?,

Welcome 1ABandit,anything is possible,a choke housing can be replaced with a stiff lever for the cable,but you can shut that off before riding.Also you could have a twistgrip lock for when signalling/high/low beam switch,horn i never use only at m.o.t.

Q,can you use the clutch lever?

Thanks jaffa, I can use the clutch, but may need velcro if i plan to exceed 100mph. Was thinking of getting a separate throttle housing and switchgear and the same for choke. Just need to find suitable items.

Thanks kcmc, appreciate all the help. I have joined NABD, but not found info to do adaptions. I think i may have to get the pro's to do it.

NABD

Try ringing their office. They only have two full time people so getting answers can take some time. If you join (£20) you get the magazine Open House. which usually has a full list, with photo's of all the adaptations they approve (and  a couple they don't). Also normally have lots of "how I did it myself" write ups. You don't have to buy through them. The are contact details for all the suppliers included in the list of parts you can buy. Ae you sure all this ino isn't on their web site? I had a feeling I've seen it there.

Join anyway. You can still be a member, even if you're not disabled at all.

Thanks Beelady,

I joined NABD late last year, i called an engineers no. locally and it turned out his brother who did the adaptions had recently died. I felt rather bad for calling and reminding the man, he was nice though, but did not do the work anymore.
