    I've just started to repair the left hand TB on my 2002 R1150GS Adv with one of Dan's kits.

    Unfortunately the throttle quadrant is of a different design to the one shown in his step-by-step guide.

    The nut that hols on the shaft is not on this TB so don't know how to proceed.

    Anyone done this with this type of TB?

    That's a snap ring, should be able to remove that and proceed as normal.

    According to the photo guide the shaft comes out that side

    Response from Dan:

    No problem there :)

    the pics you saw on advrider were from an early 1100 bike, hence the
    outer nut. I have changed that design to the one you have now for all TB
    repair kits types, so they all look the same now, with an inner M3
    thread (that's why the M3 screw and large washer is in for)

    You have to punch the old shaft out, using something smaller than 5 mm
    in diameter.
