Kaoko Motorcycle Cruise Control Throttle Lock

 A throttle lock lets you rest your tired right wrist on long highway rides.

Reduce fatigue and strain on your wrist during long distance highway riding with a Kaoko Motorcycle Cruise Control.

Your throttle hand can get pretty tired on long highway rides if you do not have a cruise control on your motorcycle. A motorcycle cruise control allows you to take your right hand off the bar to rest it periodically. It’s also more convenient and safer to use your right arm if you need to grab something out of your right side pockets or adjust your right mirror while riding. A motorcycle cruise control also improves gas mileage by reducing constant throttle inputs.

One of the simplest and most elegant designs we’ve seen for a motorcycle cruise control, is the Kaoko Throttle Lock. Just tighten the friction ring against the edge of your throttle’s hand grip and it uses gentle resistance to lock the throttle in place. With the lock on, you can still make minute adjustments to the throttle to achieve your desired speed and you can roll the throttle completely off quickly in an emergency.

To disengage the device, simply roll off the throttle while gripping the friction ring and the throttle snaps closed freely. There is an infinite range of tension adjustment, so you can even set it so your bike decelerates slowly when you cut the throttle. It’s safe and easy to use even with heavy winter gloves on.

Installation is simple and fast. Most installations can be completed in less than 5 minutes. Simply replace your Manufacturer’s (OEM) bar end weight with the Kaoko throttle lock. It works with heated grips and most hand guards systems. Kaoko motorcycle cruise control throttle locks are available for most popular Adventure Bikes.
