Can anybody recommend or know of a throttle lock that will work on the Burgman? 3 hour ride can get a little ruff on the right hand and wrist.

Vista Cruise works great

I have installed the Vista Cruise, dual throttle cable model, and it works just fine. Some minor modifications are necessary to the throttle grip tube to allow the Vista Cruise to fit. You can find the details and photos of the necessary mods on the Yahoo Burgman site. :D

Peter,
This may be a real dumb question but..."are you a member of Yahoo Groups". I'm asking because the link worked for me but first I had to log-in to Yahoo.

I use a ThrottleRocker and the Catapillar O-ring. Works for me. YMMV

I used the O Ring idea listed on this forum. Works great and helps on the long rides and only cost $1.50.

Cramp Buster, 13 bucks, goes on the throttle and you adjust it so you just rest your wrist on it and it holds down the throttle like a cruise. Cheap, works great, and doesn't get in the way of anything. Try it... :wink:

I just posted some pictures of my install of the Vista Cruise universal model, was around $35 (I overpaid, had to have it now,got it at a honda dealer most stock them) on the gallery, There under Greg Mines pics. I was able to fit the clamp under the plastic and mount the crossbar with a little Dremel mod. I didn't like the position of the finger lock I had seen on someone else's pics on the forum. It was just to awkward to turn on and off for me. I have used it for over two months now and it works great. Forget the oring idea, just to dangerous for me. When I need to brake in a hurry I don't want the throttle stuck on.
Start with carefully pulling apart the handle bar plastics close to the brake reservoir, loosen the brake reservoir clamp screw and slide it over enough to fit the clamp next to it, Its a little tricky getting the clamp screws in but it can be done.
Just be careful with the Dremel, there's part of the plastic that keeps the handle bar cover together just under were I cut into the plastic towards the top. Look at the pictures and start with a small hole in the middle where I cut through, don't go to deep, look through with a flashlight, cut a little at a time until you open it up enough to just fit the crossbar through to were it mounts on the clamp.With a little time and effort it can look like a factory install. Another thing worth mentioning, it does take away from some real estate on the grip (approx. 5/16") but not that much.
Sorry but I don't know how to attach the pics to a message yet.
Hope this helps someone, be glad to answer any questions. Greg

On my PC800 I have used:

--VistaCruise: nice unit, though not very cooperative with grip heaters. Doesn't like rain much (the bits rust). Couple years of rain/sun cycles will destroy it.

--ThrottleRocker (the original, before the lawsuits). Nice for basic rest. Wish I had got the left-side one before the lawsuit. I don't like the other "paddles" because their shape isn't as useful and are harder to adjust on-the-fly. It's a real bummer this product got squashed. I'm holding onto the one I have like it's made of precious metal. ;)

--ThrottleMeister: nice, but hard to use for "quick holds."

On the Burgman, I went with the BreakAway...and wish this bugger would fit my PC800. Expensive like the ThrottleMeister, but worth every penny and more useful day-to-day.

I use the Break Away cruise control on my C50 motorcycle it may be expensive at what I bought it for $178 but well made in aluminum.
With it you can lock your speed , twist the handle for slight adjustments , AND with a grasp of the front brake disengage it instantly in a hurry.
It's apearance looks like it is part of the normal bike controls. Will be eventually putting it on the Bergman also.

Frankly, looks crude in comparison the the Brake-Away. The B-A mounts to the bar and attaches only to the brake handle bolt. I like the on the fly handle rotation and brake handle disconnect feature, simple and quick. But if money is a consideration....

:thumbleft: The B.A. is more technological and reliable!
