I had the Throttlemeister on my 1100RT-P and didn't like it. It was awkward, for me, to set. Then I'd forget I had it applied and was fighting the restriction it enforces on the throttle.
I use a cramp buster and go cruise for my throttle control needs now.
I'd really like a cruise control like G Wolf and others have installed on their bikes.
Round Tuit!

So far, there's no good solution.

The Manic Salamander throttle lock is a much better design than the Throttlemeister, but it still doesn't work very well -- the spring simply isn't strong enough.

There's also a company called Kaoko that makes a throttle lock, but you can't use it with bar end weights or hand guards.

I put Cramp Busters on my bikes.

Sorry not completely true, they make a version for the OEM hand guards (I have on '09) and also for the BarkBuster hand guards.

I personally like it, but only use it when touring and never really 'lock it' tight so that it is fairly easy to roll the throttle off.

Good info -- thanks for the correction!

How about the ubiquitous yellow Caterpillar o-ring? Cheap, works quite well (need to be clean so it's grippy) for a short throttle hand break. I've got one that I've had since I had my old Concours, which I haven't had since 2000. Also have a throttle rocker, though, so my wrist doesn't get so tired on the highway. Do the throttle springs on this thing really need to be so stiff, though?

edit: Oh, I've read that those may be too large to work with the newer bikes' bar ends. Another similar o-ring I've noticed that might be suitable is the one on "9004" (IIRC) halogen headlight bulbs. They're a little smaller diameter, but not as thick. I suppose undoing the end of the handguards would be necessary to put either of these one the bar end on the newer bikes. Something to try, maybe, anyway.

throttle lock

have one of these $20.00 and works great motorcycle throttle control

The real truth of the matter is that V-Stroms are like orange popsicles ... kind of generic and unexciting, but on a nice warm day - everybody loves them
