My wrist started getting tired and sore, so I would like to install a throttle stop. I HAVE A THROTTLE MEISTER now on my Guzzi, and it works real good, but I would like to know what kind of rig Burgman owners use. Which is the best for the 400 Burg? All input will help!! ThanksJOHN C>

I have a Breakaway on my 650 and a Throttlemeister on my 400. Both work well.

When I bought the Throttlemeister for the 400 they did not list one for it but listed 2 different ones for the 650. I found that the one listed for the 03-04 650 will work on either the 03-06 400 or the 07+ 400.

I use an O-Ring. Others I met recently just use rubber bands. They are "applied" at the upper end of the grip between the handlebar and the throttle grip. Cost is pretty effective. :)

VistaCruise - cheap and it works.
I happen to have a Kaoka on the Burgman 650 but like the VistaCruise on the ST1100 better.

I use the ThrottleRocker [with the velcro strap]
& the Catapillar O-ring for friction. Works for me.

I considered ordering the throttle rocker just for convenience but in reading some reviews and articles online, lots of users indicated that they are dangerous (lead to unintentional overrevving of the engine) and recommended them only for experienced riders for use on the super slab. Since my wrist does not get tired (yet) and I prefer the secondary roads where frequent throttle adjustment is required, I opted to skip that item. But it sounds like it works well for some of you.

Hello. I use the O ring on the throttle. You have to roll it back to decelerate but it come natural real quick and you don't have to worry about shifting gears all the time. I have a break away , and Duster gave me a O ring to use. Its cheap simple and I never seem to use the breakaway lock anymore. Steve.

I found that grip covers (Amazon.com: Grab On Grips Grip Cover Fits From 1.25" to 1.45" OD 5"L MC402: Automotive) work the same way if they also are slipped back and cover part of the bar end weights. I bought them for the comfort (well worth it) but I accidentally found out they work great to hold the throttle when it worked it way over the weight.

Take a look at this Throttle Control it is called Tak-Lok. Web site is www.Takonix.com. I bought this about a month ago. It works really good, flip a switch or just just touch your brake handle and it is off. No rubber bands to roll off. If that is what you want. However, take a look, they have a video for a visual look to see how it works.

I use one of these on my '13 650:

Had it laying around, took 30 seconds to install or remove......no grip removal or modifications and it works well.......also have used Crampbusters for years with good results.....

Always ride safely and keep your airspeed under control.

That's been my experience with it in a nutshell. It's a bit fiddly, and if you aren't careful it can interfere with applying the front brake (reaching over/around the tab to grab the brake lever makes for a weak grip on the handlebar). If you have a need for it, it's better than nothing -- just remember to flip it out of the way when you expect to be slowing down.
