Which Vista-Cruise Cruise Control model worked for your DL650? They seem to offer various models. I know the diameter is 7/8 inch, but sorry for my ignorance... not sure about dual vs. single cable throttle. Looks like the Honda Vista Cruise needed modification to fit the Vstrom.

Thanks for the reply Bob. By fabrication of a bracket, was this something simple that a non tech person like myself could figure out how to make? Advice? I am getting hand cramps on my throttle hand, and really need a solution!Bobb_Todd said:I used a standard Honda Vista cruise.
Required fabrication of a tiny bracket to get it mounted solidly to the DL650. Works well.
It sounds like the one on your friends bike is the "universal" model. I installed a Honda ( I think) model on mine and it came out real nice. It has a built in "L" bracket with a slot in it. It wraps around the lower side of the throttle cable housing. This is how I installed mine:Bobb_Todd said:I compared my throttle lock with a Vista cruise installed on a friend's bike. Now I am not even sure mine is a Vista Cruise.
His is about 1/2 inch wide with a metal band that helps hold the throttle in place. Mine is about 1/4 inch thick and all plastic. Mine might be a "universal" brand.
I think you want the dual throttle model but you always end up having to modify or brace the lock slightly.
In an effort to make the things "universal" it seems like they don't find any bike straight out of the box.
