there's the Kaoko Throttle Lock, raves about how well they work, and reliability, but outrageously expensive

Kaoka works well, is expensive, hard to engage

I just purchased the Go Cruise 2 as well...like Boise Jim above. Watched a few videos of it and looks perfect for what I need....gets great reviews...and can't beat the $30 price.

Lighten up, Francis. If you can't take some sarcasm, an Internet forum is the last place you should be.

Thumbs down on the Cycle Gear throttle lock.

I was in bad way with my hand going numb during a cross country trip so stopped into a Cycle Gear and bought their throttle lock. This is the type that bolts between the mirror stalk and throttle, and has an arm that extends over to the throttle. It simply would not hold it's setting and was always slowly slipping to a slower setting.

Are you talking this one? That's actually one version of the Vista Cruise



IF you can get it sorted it's the best as that thumb on/off works the charm....it's fiddly but I certainly never had it slip....if it does...then it's just not adjusted enough.
I had to remover mine as with the heated grips I simply ran out of grip space with my big hands. GoCruise 2 sorted it.

Go cruise for me...

I have a Go-Cruise as well in the polished alum. finish (the seller was out of matte black). It's now the only chrome-ish bit on my '11 Wee. For what it is it works ok but I do have to tweek the tightener every few rides. Does give my throttle hand a rest and acts like a crampbuster as well.
I just shouldn't ride any bikes with "real" cruise control and I won't feel bad at all.

I have had them on may bikes and they work great and look like regular bar ends

I like the Kaoko. Might be expensive, but it's very low profile, not that hard to engage when you get used to it and it's always ready to use. I like that.
