Lost a bar end weight

So it would appear on one of my travels I have lost my left bar end weight.

So here is the question: Do I just replace it or go with a set of Kaoko-Throttle Lock and Bark busters?

Although pricey, the Kaoko is nice to have on those longer highway drones.

I already have a Throttlemeister and do like it.

Can someone send me the link for the correct version for the kaoko.

If you like the Throttlemeister and just want to swap out for really good quality Bar End Weight that is also a Bar End Slider with Replaceable pucks, then the Woodcraft Bar End Sliders are a good swap.

Shop around and, once you've decided the best place to get it, send them an email or give them a phone call. I'm certain they'll be more than happy to help make sure you get what you want.


I sent an email to Kaoko regarding compatibility of their product and ProTaper SE bars. I got a phenomenal response from them. The guy in South Africa was coordinating with Twisted Throttle to get me set up.
