removing TORS on blaster

Recommended Posts



Oh, I'm learning something new. Is this something that all quads have. I've heard of the overide thing on quads with reverse. What does it do? Is that the thing that eliminates the rev limiter in reverse?

i wanna say its just a yamaha thing but im not sure. if you look above your carb cap where the cable goes into it, if you see a gian box attached to it then you have a TORS setup. mines been giving my some trouble lately so i ordered a removal kit and wanted to see if someone has done it because im not one for drilling into my carb.

the Throttle Over Ride System. It kills the motor if u take your thumb off of the throttle it's for saftey so if u fall off it will kill the motor for yua, like on a banshee and blaster theres a ground wire on the thumb throttle that when the thumb lever hits it, it grounds out and kills the motor.

when you got rid of the tors on your blaster did it add any power what so ever or is it just simply a throttle shut off thing?

u dont gain or loose any power it is just a kill switch. it grounds the motor out when u release the thumb throttle.

people just LOVE to remove them even tho there are very few problems with em.

As I recall it's a new carb cap and throttle cable, plus some wiring instructions.

When in doubt, read the instructions again! If still in doubt, call the 800 number, especially when drilling holes in the carb!

Did they tell you to install a slide stop? That involves tapping a hole in aluminum as well. I think that's why most Blasters still have the TORS installed haha.

How about 'if it ain't broke, don't fix it' there's no performance improvement by removing it.....Let us know how it goes!:wink:

(certified yam tec)The TORS is there in-case the throttle cable freezes up, if there is no presure on the thumb lever(you let off the gass) and the cable does not release(its froze up), the spark wil be cut.
