Breakaway Throttle Lock Vee2?

Has anyone tried the Breakaway throttle lock on the Vee2? Their website simply lists "VStrom" with no qualifiers as to the different models...

I haven't tried one of those. But I do like to have throttle stops (locks). They make a big difference on long rides and once you get used to having that right hand available again they become a standard accessory. The Breakaway system looks very sophisticated and well made. Personally, I just keep buying the old style Vista Cruiser. Very simple design, about $20. I think I got my first one about 1973 and have used them on every street bike I've had.(except the BMW which came with a electronic) Just got another for my V2.

I like the Vista Cruise tho can be annoying to set up. I've had the BrakeAway on another bike and found it fiddly and too much on or off....where the others I can adjust against the friction. The BA also changes with temperature and when it gets hot will not hold.

Lately despite earlier objections I've found the GoCruise simplest of all.

I think the newer version with adjustable friction is an improvement.

I've used the go cruise for awhile and it is decent, the old style tends to slip with the vibration.

I found the old style slipping as well but on the fatter heated grips worked well and even better on the Grip Buddies which REALLY helped my hands and made the old GoCruise work the charm.

I brought it along to Australia then realized the skinny grips on the KLR weren't going to work at all

Anyone use the Onmi cruise and the new Go cruise? Seem to be similar.

New Go Cruise here for at least a year on different bikes. Buy extra silicone bands because they wear out and tear apart. It still slips some, but not as bad as the old plastic one.
