Crampbuster Cruise Control
Easy and functional
It was really easy to install and after some miles in the bike it is really helpful to rest and relieve the hand... and simply enjoy the ride!

I don't know if my bikes stock grip are just too large for this cramp buster or not, but I can say it definitely does NOT work after multiple attempts to activate cruise control.
You can push it down, but it will not hold the throttle in position.

cramp buster cruise control, a good deal for the price
This product does what it was designed to do.
It is better applied for longer rides. In city riding, this could get in between the tank and the bar and cause some problems.
My only gripe is that it has a rather large circumference and its hard / uncomfortable to wrap your hand around on the bar. I used it on the outer edge so the edge of my palm rests on the extension.

Midol not needed, cramps be gone
Slipped right on throttle. No slippage at all. Came with rubber band if there was any slippage but there wasnt. Makes lo g rides much nicer. Does not interfere with shorter commutes. I leave it on all the time.

Handy for long rides, an impediment for day-to-day local rides
This is a product that is easy to fit and functional for its intended purpose. My bike is a '14 Kawasaki Ninja 650. I did find however that my throttle grip is too narrow to leave this installed on local rides. Note, I did order the narrow version. It takes up too much room on the grip. When installed and set in the correct position which takes a little trial and error to get right it relieves the strain from keeping the throttle position using your fingers and wrist. So, on the highway when you're covering miles of constant speed riding this works quite well.
But day to day it is a hindrance to leave on the handle bar.

Real test next month
I'll have a better opinion after my long trip on March. Right now it seem durable and useful.

Handy for long rides
The crampbuster is easy to install, and was instantly intuitive to use. I found myself leaning on it instantly, relaxing my wrist and hand comfortably.
I tried riding my normal commute using it, but it tends to get in the way a litlte bit while constantly needing to adjust the throttle. Hitting the highway though it shines. A great help.
Installation and removal is super simple, so I just keep it in my kit bag rather than pushing it out the way all the time.

Great for highway, but be careful with it on the streets!
This is an incredibly simple tool, which does its job well. You can rotate it 'forward' to move it around the grip to keep it partially out of the way, but if you rotate it the other way, it twists the throttle.
I found that after getting on the highway, I would have to clutch in and adjust the crampbuster to get ideal position, but then I could rest most of my palm against the device to keep the throttle engaged and to take some of the strain off of my fingers/wrist.
Definitely a good thing to have for a long trip, but I prefer to leave it off unless going for a few hours.
