Kaoko Throttle Lock BMW F700GS / F800GS / R1200 / K1200 / K1300 Videos

Kaoko Throttle Lock BMW F700GS / F800GS / K1200/S/R / R1200S/R/RT / K1300S/R

The Kaoko Cruise Control is perfect for anyone looking to reduce fatigue and strain on your hand and wrist during long distance highway riding.

Each Throttle Lock consists of a simple, ingenious and robustly designed friction nut that is integrated with a special Kaoko bar end weight. The Kaoko bar end weight is closely matched in appearance and weight to the Original Equipment Manufacturer's (OEM) bar end weight.

The Friction Nut has a left-hand thread. It must be adjusted so that it makes light contact with the rubber throttle sleeve.

The Grub Screw is set to provide the necessary resistance on the friction nut. This may be adjusted periodically to take up wear.

To Engage: Twist the throttle and friction nut simultaneously with your right hand. This action tightens the nut and provides sufficient friction to set throttle to the desired position. The friction nut is designed that the rider may still open and close the throttle.

To Disengage: Roll off the throttle while gripping the friction nut. The throttle should open and snap closed freely.

Type A: BMW F700GS, F800GS and F800GS ADV with Barkbuster, Touratech handguards or OEM barend mounted plastic handguards. All other models without handguards.

Type B: Only for BMW F700GS and F800GS with OEM steel backbone hand guards that secure in between the bar-end weight and throttle sleeve

Features:

  • Easy to operate, even with heavy winter gloves
  • High quality, compact and durable design
  • Super smooth action
  • Takes less than 5 minutes to install
  • Very little maintenance is required
  • Less wear and tear on throttle cables and grips
  • Better MPG

Kaoko for the F800GS
I was looking for an unobtrusive but functional throttle lock for my 2014 F800GS. I was skeptical about the Kaoko because of the price tag, but once I had it in my hand I could see that it is a very well made product, and super easy to install. Literally 3 minutes later it was on my bike and ready to use. Fits perfect with my barkbuster storms. Very easy to set and disengage, and looks like factory equipment.

Great product!
Super easy to install and works perfectly. I love that you can still adjust the throttle while the throttle lock is engaged. This is a must have for longer rides.

Great covert throttle lock
I put this throttle lock on in winter and have only had one chance to try it while riding. It worked great and is definitely a lot better looking than all the "lock on handlebar" throttle locks. It was extremely easy to install and set, literally took about 5 minutes and I have the factory bmw hand guards on. The throttle lock simply replaces the bar end on the throttle side and it's only one bolt to pull out and replace.

as advertised
Most popular throttle lock and works as advertised. Nice to be able to give the right hand a break on those long runs. Takes a little getting used to to find a technique that works. Crazy expensive for what it is, wish I had developed this thing! Nicely made, 5 min. install.

Lifesaver for long trips
This is a great product. Put it on a 2013 F800GS. Installation was a snap. Long trips were so much more enjoyable. I have since moved to a R1200GSAW with cruise control. If I ever get a bike without cruise control, this would be the top of the list to get.

It's why you got this in the first place.
It performs as you'd want it to perform, but it's not cruise control. Solid and functional, looks good on my black '08 R1200R.

This product provides rider comfort.
The Kaoko Throttle Lock is easy to install. Ride around with it a few times to get familiar with how much tension is needed and make the adjustments first before you hit the road on a long trip. The Kaoko Throttle Lock has been a nice addition to my 2015 F800 GSA by allowing me to relax my throttle grip.

Easy to install and works as advertised
This product is extremely easy to install (even for people not very mechanically inclined). After about 10 minutes I was out for a ride to test the product. It does take a little time to get used to setting it; however once you do, it is extremely easy to set and to use.

If your hand goes numb while riding & you want to pull your hand off the throttle for a short period of time or you are on a long trip and you are looking for essentially a cruise control this this will work perfectly.

Well worth the money
I purchased the Kaoko Throttle Lock for the F800GSA after my first weekend ride. Eliminates the wrist and arm fatigue. Well worth the money. Installation was very simple. Very pleased with it.

Does a decent job when on flat level roads, but overpriced for what it is.

Was looking for a low-key throttle lock for my new F800GS Adventure (why it doesn't come with one is beyond me...) and this Kaoko was highly recommended. Just got done with a moderate ride after a 5-min install and I'm very, very pleased.

Alain D on Dec 19, 2015
I used the throttle lock on a previous bike and loved it. I gives you just enough to rest your right hand on long stretches.
connie c on Nov 27, 2015
I chose this because I wanted some throttle assistance because of my carpal tunnel, and it seems to be working out so far.

Works with Factory metal backed handguards.
Rob R on Sep 30, 2015
I don't use it as much as I thought I would, but it does the job & matches the other bar end on my BMW R1200R very well.
Patrick M on Sep 9, 2015
Need some momentary right arm relief on the long hauls. No expectation of this being a "cruise control", its just a way to briefly free the right hand.
Darryl M. on May 22, 2015
Best option for cruise control on an F800GS.
John L on May 14, 2015
This is going on my wife's new bike. It's an awesome tool on those long days slabbing it.
Jade L on Mar 19, 2015
Have a 1600 mile road trip coming up and will need a little rest for the throttle hand evey now and then.

Just checking? For sure fitment on my bmw F700GS with barkbuster storm hand guards. hope this is the correct one if not please let me know which one i would need. Thanks
A shopper on May 18, 2014
So does this work with the metal backbone handguards? In the fitment tab it says no, but in product details is says yes......
Christopher S on Mar 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I have this on my 2014 F800GS Adventure with Barkbuster Storm Hand guard and it works perfect. The installation was painless; not sure but I think the model I ordered must be used with Barkbuster. I have corporal tunnel in my right arm and it goes numb after a while on long trips. Use this just long enough to free my arm and shake out the numbness.
What is the weight of this product?
Doug C on Jan 12, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Similar in weight to what is factory on the bar ends, which in the case of the 1700 Vmax was quite a bit. I wanted to ensure that the throttle lock was similar as they are weighted for a reason and I wasn't disappointed. The quality is exceptional and it looks like the factory put it there. (they should have!)
Does it work on BMW K1300S heated grips?
Ha-say H on Sep 2, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes, my bike is a K1300S. No issues
