Interesting, this conversation came up when I was attending American Supercamp earlier this year. The short of it is they advised against it as it hurts your ability to modulate the throttle making the bike harder to handle while accelerating out of turns. Chris, Danny and a couple of the visiting go fast boys all chipped in on this and discussed their lap times and number of crashes with a "normal" throttle vs. 1/4 turn throttle. They all said just don't do it.
There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
