Kaoko Throttle Lock Kawasaki ER-6N / KLR650 / Ninja 650R / ZX-12R / ZX-14R / Concours ZG1000 / ZG14000

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 - Compatible with and without OEM handguards.

Type B - Compatible with Barkbuster VP and Storm handguards.


  • 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 Throttle Lock Kawasaki 4.7 5 24 24
On a KLR 650 with Barkbusters This is does not work like an electronic cruise control. It simply jams against the throttle tube and holds it in one position. So, the bike will slow down going up a hill and speed up going down. That being said, it does give your right hand a break and at 1/10th the price of an electronic cruise its a good value. Installation is pretty simple despite poor instructions. There's YouTube videos for many kinds of bikes. Operation takes a minute to get used to it. Basically just turn the dial down until the throttle is snug and then put the throttle where you want it. Remember that you are putting pressure on a plastic part. I've only dialed it enough to hold the throttle. Any more might damage the throttle tube. You will have to manually close the throttle while the lock is engaged. November 9, 2015
Throttle Lock Very Happy with the throttle lock.It's design is simple and it works well.It's very easy to engage with one hand.It also looks great,you can hardly tell the bike has a throttle lock installed. September 29, 2015
Installed on my Versys 2014 650 Works great! Just keep in mind a little throttle control is needed for up/down hills. Other than that it works great!! A must buy if you ride long distance. August 17, 2015
Perfect addition I did a lot of research on throttle locks. This one was my choice. My other bike has the throttlemister. I now like the Kaoko. Easy install. The knurled wheel is great making engagement simple. August 17, 2015
Excellent product - Requires deep wallet I installed the Kaoko Throttle lock on my 2011 Kawasaki Concours roughly 12 weeks ago. Since installation I have put about 2,000 miles on my Connie, with about half of that being highway miles. First Impression- I received the box in the mail in a timely manner (thanks to revzilla) and noticed the weight of the small box. Wow! There was definitely a solid chunk of metal in there. Opened the package and revealed the throttle lock device. It had a nice heavy coat (powdercoat?) of matte black paint on it which matched my other handlebar end quite well. The entire device looked as thought it as machine turned out of high quality aluminum. The texture, whether it was from the paint or the surface finish quality of the part itself, was a little more "rough" than the OE bar end. Installation- Not much here, it was very easy and straight forward. In about 5 minutes I had my new Kaoko throttle lock installed. For my model application, you must use the included nylon washer to make up for the extra gap between the throttle grip and throttle lock, or else you would most likely run out of threads before locking the grip (assumption). Use- Being my very first throttle lock to use on a bike, I will admit it took some getting used to. It was a bit awkward having to roll back on the rotating piece (reverse threaded) of the throttle lock which in turn locks the grip. With some practice, you can hold the throttle steady while locking it in place. Once it is locked in place - it is a solid, firm hold. I can cruise all day with the lock set for 70 mph and it will not move at all. Final review Pros- High quality materials used, solid construction. Durable finishes (powdercoat/anodized?). Locks in place without slipping during rides. Cons- Surface finish a bit more textured that OE so not a perfect match, $$$$$$$$$$. Overall, excellent product. In the end, you get what you pay for. I would highly recommend to others. Ben Clark, August 10, 2015
Great product Works as advertised simply great product very easy to use. July 21, 2015
This product works as advertised. Installed the unit and then took the bike on a 1000 mile ride. The reduction of arm and hand fatigued was great. May 25, 2015
Great Throttle lock Bought this for the new Kawasaki Concours 14ABS I just got. I have cruise on our HD Ultra Limited but if out on a long section of interstate this helps with giving the arm and wrist a break. easy to install and works great. May 11, 2015

Jose A: On long trip, not being able to relax your right hand is very uncomfortable. Aug 4, 2014
Gavin C: Looked at all the throttle lock options out there, break away, vistacruise, throttlemeister, and this is the simplest design I've seen. With its simplicity, it's easy to see that if you were to get in a situation where you needed to roll back the throttle while locked, it would not impede your doing so. The others have mixed reviews on that front (especially the breakaway at high temps... scary stuff). As safety is most important to me, I went with this one. Jul 3, 2014
Jeffrey W: I had on on my DL1000.Simple, works great. May 4, 2014
STEWART C: I have used this product on another bike and like the performance, plus the stock hand gaurds/windblockers work so well I wanted to retain them. Mar 9, 2014

Jeffrey W: Look at Kaoko's website there is an option that says "can't find your bike". You then enter your name, email, and bike. They are in Africa so it might take a couple days for them to respond. Oct 19, 2014

A shopper asked: If I purchase the one with the bar end weight for a klr650, can I latter modify it to be able to install barbuster handguards? Jan 4, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Michael F: Yes. I installed my Kaoko Throttle Lock at the same time that I installed the Barkbuster Handguards, and it came out great. If you install both at the same time, for my Kawasaki Versys 650, I didn't even need the weighted ends, as the Barkbusters (I installed the guards that connect at the end of the handlebars and also connect further up the bar) seem to have enough weight on both sides of the handlebar to prevent vibrations. If you want to play it safe I was advised to buy the weighted end for the side opposite the throttle lock (which would be the left side) to offset the throttle lock weight differential. But again, no noticeable difference to me, but I always ride with either gel gloves or winter gloves. The handlebars never shake. One note: If you are planning to install the throttle lock now and then add handguards later, I'd advise using low-strength lock-tite, and not the high strength, or you may not be able to remove the throttle lock down the line...I haven't used the high strength lock-tite, but supposedly it basically welds the screw/shaft metals together and you have to cut the bolt out. Installing both the throttle lock and handguards look great together and are very functional. I can ride a lot longer in cold weather without hand freeze and the lock is great for Interstate riding or taking quick on-the-go hand breaks on longer rides. Jan 4, 2015

John C: I am not 100% on this, but I would imagine you could being as I believe the bark busters are attached at the end via the central bolt - so I suspect that would still be ok... but not 100% as I haven't tried it - I have hand guards on my KLR, but I put the throttle lock on my Connie. Jan 4, 2015

Gavin C: From what I understand, not really no. However, there are barkbuster products that will install with the regular fitment. You just have to get the generic barkbuster that goes into the end of the handlebars. Warning there though, those are not as nice. Jan 4, 2015
