Default Ouchless saved my day!

I've made many throttle return mods, always with some flauds.
On my trip to the US i made some sightseing, to Walmart
Got 2 packs of ouchless hairbands

Today they saved my ride, cutoff works faster than failsafe - ouchless works faster

Cheapest and best failsafe ever!

Might have to pick up a pack soon. Am using a rubber band and the failsafe on my React, but I don't really trust either.

I've seen the "ouchless" break when exposed to fuel.


These never fail.

Ouchless will break from wear, for sure. Just add one, or two.
So will GMK.
Ouchless is a funny thing thats cheap and easy to find (walmart), and it works better than all the other ties and springs I've tried.

the only problem with the springs is that they get stretched out after awhile. and kind of expensive
