.99 cruise control

After reading this forum a bit and considering a wee many seem to pine for a cruise control. This worked great on my klr and should work on wee I think.

search on youtube "Cheapest Cruise control for KLR 650"

The o-ring "cruise control" was a big thing on the Kawasaki Concours. We even had a part# for a yellow Caterpillar o-ring! Lots of folks used them to good effect.
