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.

  • High quality, compact and durable design
  • Super smooth action
  • Takes less than 5 minutes to install

Kaoko Throttle Lock Kawasaki 4.6 5 10 10
Over all a great product! Installation was straight forward. I simply bolted it on. The directions were a little confusing about which washer to use between the grip and throttle lock. When assembled it made more sense. Operation is very good. It takes a few practice tries to get the adjustment just right. After that it works flawlessly. The fit and finish are top notch. It matches the OEM end weight perfectly. The throttle lock is a great addition for long distance riding. It gives me a chance to rest my hand on long runs. December 29, 2014
Solid product, smooth operation! This throttle lock is an absolute requisite before a road trip and a great alternative to a full cruise control system costing hundreds. The Kaoko throttle lock is weighted nicely, fluid in operation and very easy to install. November 21, 2014
Great Cruise control! Pretty easy to install and make proper accessory adjustments to get correct amount of friction. Really built and machined well with matching finish. Little pricy but still worth it for looks over the cheep plastic throttle locks.. September 30, 2014
Great bang for buck Install was super easy and finish looks great. Takes time to get used to activating and deactivating as you need to get the tension correct at set up. So far, very good in hwy conditions as I only intend on using for longer trips but more practice should improve overall function. Very happy with the product and shipping was crazy fast to Canada. Thanks Rev It! September 19, 2014
Worth Every Penny! I just did 1250 miles in two days and this saved my wrist. I am so glad I bought this product. I was leery of the price at first but am so happy with it. Additionally, it was as easy to install as they claim, it took me less than two minutes. August 11, 2014
It works Not high tech but functional. Have to fiddle around with it for awhile to get used to it. August 4, 2014
Quick and Easy Couldn't beat this device. Installs in 5 minutes, no alterations or adustments, just plug and play simplicity. I installed this and was out riding in a few minutes and it worked flawlessly. I had looked at electronic cruise controls but didn't want the complicated install, For what I needed, to give my hand some relief on long rides, it works great. February 3, 2014
Good finish, easy fit, great relief on long journeys but you must be careful with this. Out of the packet it was easy to see this was a good quality product, paint finish is great. The fitting could not be easier just make sure you have thread locking liquid to hand. on my bike (versys 650) there was no need for filing the bar end as there seems to be with some bikes. On the road it takes a little bit of getting used to and I advise that you only use it when you are very sure that your way ahead is very clear and relatively straight. It was fun to play with it on short 100 to 150 km runs but not really required. However on a 700 km run with stops only for fuel it was amazing. Being able to rest your hand and arm as well as getting some movement in your shoulder without slow or stopping was the envy of the group. This unit looks OEM and works fantastic but should be treated with respect when using. December 30, 2013

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
John L: Online reviews. Feb 15, 2015
Ronald B: Did a bit of research and for the ease of installation and that it can be overridden, and appears to be of good quality. Jan 5, 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

rob m: Jeff, I got their email address from their website. I received 2 responses from 2 different people. Both are trying to get particular info from me to see if they already have something (I'm impressed). I will repost results as soon as they get back with me. Thanks. Oct 20, 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

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.

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
