There are a few side-by-side RV's out there with left-side throttles. Scott Jackson in Delta, BC, has one that i've flown. It uses a cable arrangement to a slave throttle on the left side, leaving the center (lever-type) throttle intact.

My plan for my -7 is to put a lever-operated throttle between the seats, ahead of the spar, with a handle from an F100 or F104 (not sure which) that I bought from eBay. I'll be flying it right-seat, to get the stick in my right hand, throttle in my left. I know this will require relocating the fuel selector, no, I haven't decided how i'll do that yet.
