Throttle lock how-to?

I know there are quite a few people running NEP/Vista Cruise throttle locks on their DL's. I had a VC on my VFR, but it required a little Dremel work. I understand the DL is the same. Does anyone have a few step by step pics posted on this topic? I found a how-to with pictures for the VFR which gave me the confidence to do it myself.

Red DL650K6- Givi E21, NEP CC-4, GPS, OE hand guards, Madstad, Scorpion slip-on, Genmar risers, SW centerstand.

06 Pearl White VFR- sold, missed.

I've done it, but I'm too lazy [um...busy] to write much up. You basicaly have to move the kill switch housing (pinned) and/or mirror bracket to make room for the Vista Cruise.

I've got the thing work with hot grips too.

I hooked up NEP cruise lock (The 1' one meant for cruisers) and used one of those aluminum brackets to hold it to back side if the right controls. It works great and was very easy. I didn't have to dremel anything to get it to work.

Here's a writeup on the NEP, it's what I use and it was an easy install:

I installed the NEP CC4 model on my K7 Wee and it fits and works just fine, no cutting, glue or zip ties. Just roll back the inner hand grip.

I installed the Throttlemiester from my late 1200 Bandit. It looks good and works very well.
