Audiovox quit making it. The only place I know of to get one is Murphs' CCS100 Cruise Control
It includes the controller. It does not include the vacuum reservoir or a bracket for the controller. There are lots of helpful posts at Gearview-Cruise Control-Video
It was on my '07 Wee when I sold it. I'm sure it's still working or Stromin'Nroman would have told me. The Glee doesn't have any free vacuum ports so a tee would have to be used. I put a Rostra on my Glee.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.
Nicknames I use to lessen typing, Vee = 2002-2012 DL1000s. Vee2=2014-2016 DL1000s. Wee = 2004-2011 DL650s. Glee = 2012-2016 DL650s

I'm not saying the Rostra is better. I just wanted to try something different. The Rostra is bigger. I had to put it in the tail, displacing the tool kit. I think the CCS100 will fit under a side cover. I'm not sure which one I prefer at this point.

Greywolf is there nothing that can be done to give us more electrical power or is it not cost effective. I have seen the alternator bolted on. Can the generator be rewound. Sorry if this is a silly question but I'm no sparks.

There is nothing simple and reliable. There doesn't seem to be enough space inside the case. At least any stator wound to increase power has been unreliable. The Electrosport is a prime example. Adding an external alternator is a rare and difficult modification.

For most of us, the task is to cut down on electrical draw with such tricks as cutting out one headlight for daytime use. The Rostra doesn't seem to use much power. Most of the time it isn't running. The CCS100 uses even less power as the big draw of the motor in the Rostra is handled by vacuum.

If anyone happens to know of a qualified mechanic either in WA or CO (I am preparing to move), who is willing to install one of these CC systems, please advise. I do not want to deal with the install. Thanks!

I am thinking it will take luck to find a willing mechanic to do that work to your bike. It is involved and also I am sure they would be uncomfortable with the possible liability involved. Good luck with your search.
