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

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
Excellent - just what I hoped for. I have to admit I was a little spooked trying make sure I got the right one for my cycle ('13 Kawi Concours 14). Everything worked out. I did have to use the spacer indicated on the spacer but unclear from instructions. Fit finish and function are all excellent. The whole install took maybe 15 minutes. I took her on a long ride from West Palm Beach up to Leesburg and back. I couldn't ask for more. Takes a little getting used to activating/deactivating but is easy and works well. Next long ride will be WPB to Deals Gap, NC via Daytona in October. Psyched. Only thing better would be Electronic Cruise. May 7, 2015
Real handy on long trips. Added this device last year and it took a bit to install. The spacing was real tight and I was instructed to push down the throttle assembly to make room. I was finally able to get it on but not as well as I thought it should be. I have used it a few times and it serves it purpose. March 28, 2015
A winner Unfortunately, the one thing I really, really wish Kawasaki had included on the C14 is electronic cruise. The rest of the bike is excellent (and an excellent value), but once you've had real cruise control, it's tough to live without it. With that said, I've had multiple bikes on which I've installed the obvious competing product and after 5K miles, I have to say that from install to operation, this Kaoko is the way to go. It's a long way from the aformentioned Nirvana state, but went on easily and works like a champ. I consider it a must-have enhancement to what is a pretty capable machine. As always, the Revzilla portion of the purchase was seamless. March 27, 2015
worth every penny!!! arrived when promised. and the other reviews helped out alot. since i have heated grips I had to add to small washers inside so it allow more adjustment on the off position. also it looks like it belongs on there not like a gadget.....thanks again. March 23, 2015
It works! If Kawi would add cruise to the C14, I would trade my 2012 in today. In the meantime, this thottle lock will have to do. It is a very smart and safe design. March 3, 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

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
