I just bought one of these for my FJR, and thought id pass it along as an alternative to breakaway, the fjr with heated grips doesn't the breakaway. It's universal so fits any, I guess, bike, it comes with different " rings" for different throttle sizes

It is in Matt black or chrome finish, and is fitted in less than 5 mins

Like he breakaway, it releases when the brake is used, is flipped on and off with your throttle thumb

Any can be found here http://www.tak-lok.com, it's $159. So a little cheaper than breakaway.

Anyway ride safe, hope someone gets some use fom this post.

I have a "Throttlemeister" set on my 650. I prefer the aesthetic
looks and functionality of the handle bar ends to any of the throttle
locks I've seen or used.

I'm guessing you simply twist the t-lock to engage it. Rotating the throttle off disengages it? Did I get that right?

Right, engage by turning in the same direction as opening the throttle. Disengage by turning in the same direction as closing the throttle.

That's a good looking device. I use the Karoka on the Burgman but y'know this is the easiest



Vista Cruise.

KISS to put on and very intuitive use - easier than any other I've had ( including BreakAway ) and it just disappears.



Best of all....$20 - easy to adjust ( I just put the little key on the key ring )

It's easiest to activate and disengage I've come across. You just use your thumb

here is install - I had to trim the grip flange a bit as well but no biggie

With the Karoka I tend to leave it in somewhat sticky position and can then adjust speed without disengaging it entirely.

You can get basically the same throttle control as the original post on Amazon for $25. Use search term Go Cruise GC-1

I have one of these on my Burgman. Works okay, gives me time to exercise my right hand/arm when I need to. Remember, this is a throttle lock not a cruise control.

+1 I saw one of these on a friends NT700V. It seemed like an elegant solution. WebBikeWorld editors agree. http://www.webbikeworld.com/t2/go-cruis ... e-control/ It looks like if you shop around and you can find it even cheaper, for $20.

Found it on eBay for $19.99. I'll let everyone know how it works with grip puppies. :)

Just look at the videos of the cruise locks and compare for yourself. I for myself like that the idea if I just touch the brake handle the throttle will return to an idle
position. You get what you pay for. WalMart also sells rubber bands :) go for it.

I had the breakaway and did not find it any safer and was temperature sensitive so you don't always get a better product.
Even the Karoka which is very well made and good looking...I'd opt for the $20 Vista Cruise as it's KISS and works effortlessly.

Started with a Vista throttle lock and after a couple of heart palpitating episode decide it dangerous pos, moved on to a BrakeAway so much safer, better, dependable and intuitive. Tak-Lok look like work very well also.

As in all thing you get what you pay for !

Got the GoCruise myself off of eBay a few months back. So simple to use. May not be as elegant as some of the higher-priced throttle locks but does the job just fine.

Tak-Lok Throttle Lock Opinions

I know this is an old post to try and resuscitate, but do any of you members who bought the Tak-Lok have any misgivings about their purchase? I finally broke down and got one and loved it for a couple of a hundred miles. Now I'm having trouble keeping it on the locking band. Keeps wanting to fall off when adjusting speed while in the locked position.
