Installing electric cruise control

I am wanting to install electric cruise control. I was thinking about this kit, but was wondering if I get this, is this all I will need? Do I need to buy anything in addition to this below?

That appears to be a CCS-100 clone. It needs a vacuum canister and the handlebar control switch needs to be waterproofed. A switch mount has to be bought or fabricated. See more info at Murphs' CCS100 Cruise Control and the threads at Gearview-Cruise Control-Video and

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

The vacuum ports on the Glee are all occupied. You'll need to cut the present hoses and insert tee junction pieces in them then combine the hoses off those two tees with another tee. I'm pretty sure that involves more tees than come with the kit so you'll probably need extra vacuum tees.

I installed the rostra cruise control last fall. It is great on the highway. There is no vacuum canister to worry about.

A question for those with CC. With a car you set it then take your foot off the accelerator. On a bike you're still gripping the throttle so doesn't that interfere with the operation?

I add some slack to the throttle cable and keep a loose grip. It's easy to add more throttle so I let up occasionally to prevent that.

It works just like in a car. You'll feel the CC pick up and you can release the throttle. The only ways to cancel the CC engagement are engaging the brake or hitting the cancel switch. Holding the throttle won't keep the CC from engaging.
