This seems a bit strange. I just received the Cruise2 and it does not work on my 09 Wee. If I turn down to the tightest so it doesn't slowly return to idle - it is took tight to set when riding! It I keep the tightness enough so I can easily set it with my index or thumb - it simply will not hold the throttle at and constant speed at all! I do have the silicon ring installed and I tried it with out the ring. Nothing works. Suggestions? I am going to sell it or return it to Amazon if I cannot resolve it!
Thanks

I know others have had good luck with these but I have tried the original plastic Go Cruise and the Omni-Cruise, neither worked well for me. The Go Cruise worked the best but I had to run a zip tie thru one of the holes and then tighten it pretty good, but the zip tie usually had to be replaced frequently. I finally gave up and purchased a Kaoko.

YMMV

I have the Kaoko throttle lock with Barkbusters Storm handguards. They work together.

Sorry, don't know. BUT you can contact Kaoko (Kaoko - Cruise Controls) or Twisted Throttle (Motorcycle Luggage, Motorcycle Protection, Handguards & Accessories - TwistedThrottle.com) and they should be able to help.

TT helped me get the correct model of Kaoko, I am running Pro Taper SE ATV handle bars and oem bar ends.
