Try it both ways.....however, in the end, you will recognize that it goes underneath the bars.

It can be operated by your thumb, without taking your hand off the grip.

Evening Simon.

As DEET says, RT2 came with it fitted below. However, it was swapped to above for the RT3 (see the RT3 promo literature and page 10 of the RT3 Owner's Manual in the Tech Library).

If you did want to flip it you would need a couple of new parts. Drop me an email if you want details.

One of my earliest threads was on this subject and there were some quite interesting posts as to why Yamaha might have changed it.

Ahhh OK but how does it work underneath ?, my thumb doesn't work backwards ?
I don't actually use it, she does kick back at times but she gives in to my boot.
