Quick and easy install. The cramps this saves, and the ease of install and clarity of directions make this a great add on. Installed this throttle lock prior to my trip of 3300 + miles and it held up great and was well worth the small fee to purchase.
I installed this on an 07 Honda VTX with Kury ISO Grips already installed. Installation was a breeze, however I did have to move the master cylinder a little to fit the piece that attaches to the handlebar. It is probably the least favorite thing to look at on my bike, but the function is nice. Definitely not cruise control, but holds your throttle open so you can relax your grip, adjust your mirror, etc.
Although the throttle lock is an easy install and works well, I found it lacked in suitability for my Kawasaki 900 throttle handle. The throttle is a OEM handle (stock). You get a small, medium and large rubber gasket. I had to make my own from a inner tube and wrap it around the handle enorder for the part to work properly. It was no real big deal, but out of the box it should work. When I purchased the part it did NOT say what type of handle throttle it would fit though. >>Mitch
I just installed this on my 07 Warrior in about 10 minutes, so it is very easy to install and adjust. Now I need the weather to cooperate so I can try it on the road. Seems to be a quality product that I look forward to using on a cross country trip this summer.
We had the chance to trial this new throttle while doing a ride on a long journey on roads of the Quebec province, and we like it very much because it allows the use of a handsfree assisant that is freeing up the driver's mind while driving. It relaxes, and it allows to better concentrate on the road and avoid accidents.
Just FYI for any Triumph Rocket 3 owners this product will not fit our bikes. The front brake reservoir is located to close to the handlebar for the support clamp to encircle. I contacted the Kuryakyn technical support center before ordering and was assured it would fit. It is being returned to Dennis Kirk via their quick return system which is fantastic. The throttle assist seems to be of good quality but I am disappointed it will not work on my bike. Boo to Kuryakyn for providing erroneous information, thanks to Dennis Kirk for their great customer service.
Got the unit the day after I ordered. I'm maybe 200 miles away from the store, so that isn't too bad. Cost for the unit was great compared to others and shipping was acceptable. I installed it on a 2010 Kawasaki 900 Vulcan Classic. Install time tools-out to tools-stashed was about 45 minutes. I had to move the brake pod a little to make it fit. The instructions are good. The parts did fit, but it was a tad tight and the hex wrenches I needed had to be hunted for in my toolbox. I suggest you mark the brake pod location on the pod and bar with a marker so when you move it you can align it easily. Also, be VERY careful tightening the hex bolts that connect to the bar clamp. I cracked the clamp by being only moderately "heavy handed" with it. We'll see how or iff it affects the unit. The part that goes on the grip was VERY tight to slide down the grip. I used a water/soap mix to make it slide easier. All in all, seems like a good piece of equipment especially for the price.
I have a Yamaha cruiser with stock handlebars, and a Yamaha cruiser with custom handlebars. It didn't fit either one due to limited spacing between the hydraulic brake and the throttle. The custom bars don't allow me to change the gap between the brake clamp and the throttle, but the other bike's stock bars does. However, if I move the brake clamp, I will have to move the windshield out to allow room for the hydraulic reservoir and there isn't room to move the windshield out.
