Kaoko Throttle Lock Kawasaki Versys 1000

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: With Barkbuster VPS & Storm Handguards.

Type B: With OEM Kawasaki Handguards.

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

Note: Kit does NOT include a replacement left-side bar end weight.

Can not get it to work on my 2015 Versys 1000
It barely reaches my throttle when screwed all the way out. I think the spacer needs to be wider to fill in the gap. I am afraid it will unscrew all the way and jam my throttle open.

Does what it's supposed to
Easiest install I've ever done on a bike, this took less than a minute and it works exactly as advertised. Small twist of the gnarled nut to the rear and it engages.

Is it worth the expense? Depends on how much you ride and for how long. I bought it to be able to relax and stretch my right hand after an hour or two in the saddle. It's not cruise-control, but it's nowhere near that expensive either.

Comfort for the Versys 1000 helps relax the hand on trips!
Michael J on Nov 26, 2016
I was tired of holding the throttle on long trips. This unit works like it states...It locks your throttle in position. Its not cruise control, but does a fantastic job of relieving hand fatigue on the throttle.

Hi!

My Brazilian Kawasaki Versys 650 2011 doesn't have handguards, so this item won't fit exactly since the standard bar end guard is larger.

"Type A - With Barkbuster VPS & Storm Handguards"

Which would be the appropiate item?
