The crampbuster is great for longer rides, however i found that it can get in my way when i'm just putting around town. This could be because i have the wide one however. For longer rides it's great because it allows you to relax your grip and maintain throttle control. It's also well designed and easy to use.
This was cheap enough I thought it worth a try to reduce the cramps and numbness I get in my hand. I am very pleased with it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend. I am glad I chose the thinner model so that there is room for my hand if I chose not to use it.
A clean simple design, that is easy to install and use. It works just as advertised and it is reasonably priced. For a small investment it yields big returns in riding comfort. I got the Narrow Crampbuster and it never seems to get in the way, but you can easily rotate it to a neutral position when you don't want to use it. A great product at a great price.
The Crampbuster was a great invention by somebody. It lets your right hand relax while riding, whether it be around town or on long rides. As long as you keep pressure on the crampbuster you can maintain your speed and no hand cramps! Great product.
My Honda VTX1300R does not have real cruise control, and my wrist gets tired on long rides. This little device is perfect. I slide it around until it rests on the heal of my hand at my normal cruising speed. I do not have to grip the throttle. I has never been in the way, and is easy to slide out of the way completely if desired.
This is an excellent alternative to ripping apart your handlebars to put on cruise control. It works really well. Just rest your palm and relax and enjoy the road. I have bought this item for my wife then I have gotten two more for my buddies. They rode every weekend 10 hours each way to go to a jobsite and they said this was a saviour and made the trip that much better since they put it on.
It really allows you to rotate the throttle and hold it open with just pressure from the heel of your hand. You don't have to worry about gripping the throttle. Because of the wrap around design, it will slip freely if you rotate it upward, so you can adjust where you want it, but then it grips when it is rotated downward (opening throttle). I have it on foam covered grips and it grips well. There are others out there similar that use a velcro strap which may be more permanant.
The Crampbuster works well on the highway but can get in the way around town. Sliding it to the end of my throttle grip helped. I also adjusted the angle of my front brake lever to work easier with the Buster. It rotates easily in the clockwise (forward) position. I recommend getting up to speed and quickly rotating it to your preferred position for cruising. People with big hands will probably want to get the slim version as it does take up grip room. Good product. Helps with preventing the exhausting "death grip".
