Question Feedback on Audiovox Cruise?

Having searched about for info on the Audiovox Cruise Control system, I don't see any negative feedback. Lots of info in install procedures, etc.

I'm seriously considering installing one for those high-mileage days.

Does anyone have anything bad to say about this system?
Any ideas about a Canadian supplier (I'm in Vancouver)?

Once the somewhat difficult installation is accomplished, it's a great addition for not much money.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.

I have installed the AudioVox CCS100 on several cars, and 2 bikes without any major difficulties.

You can order one through pretty much most auto part stores in Canada. If I recall, they sell for around 120 loons or so.

Most places dont stock them anymore, because pretty much every car built for the last many years have cruise.

Cheers!

Thanks guys,
I understand it's a lengthy installation. Provided I can find all the right wires, I don't see why it shouldn't work.
So no problems with the throttle hook-up or anything?

I recently read about another cruise control that doesn't require all the vacuum hookup. I thought it was on this site, but of course now I can't find it.

"I am enthusiastic over humanity's extraordinary and sometimes very timely ingenuities. If you are in a shipwreck and all the boats are gone, a piano top buoyant enough to keep you afloat that comes along makes a fortuitous life preserver. But this is not to say that the best way to design a life preserver is in the form of a piano top.
I think we are clinging to a great many piano tops in accepting yesterday's fortuitous contrivings as constituting the only means for solving a given problem." - R. Buckminster Fuller

See the threads at http://11109.rapidforum.com/area=97 for good info including the non vacuum type.

Pat- 2007 DL650A was ridden to all 48 contiguous states. I didn't quite make it to 17,000 miles on the 2012 DL650A.

Hmmm. The plot thickens.
I hadn't seen this Rostra system.
I must investigate further.
A bit pricier, but avoiding creating potential vacuum leaks on this bike seems like a good idea. Rbertalotto's comparative review between the two systems is quite positive in the Rostra's favour.

Summit Racing stocks the audiovox and its $90!

FYI: It won't work with LED taillights without a relay. I just read that tonight.

Its not hard to do.

Best addition to the bike so far.

Two up with 16T front sprocket and no troubles in the hills and valleys.

I just got mine installed yesterday. Took all day but I'm kind of slow. Works great. Glad I did it.

I have leds in my tail lights so I had to wire in the relays but its pretty easy.

Peace carries a big gun!
