Kaoko Throttle Lock Suzuki V-Strom 650 / DRZ400S Without Handgaurds

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.

  • High quality, compact and durable design
  • Super smooth action
  • Takes less than 5 minutes to install
  • Very little maintenance is required

absolute necessity
If you are one who takes long trips, you absolutely need this product. Before purchasing the Kaoko throttle lock, my right hand would be extremely fatigued after a long trip. Especially after many hours on the interstate. I recently went on a 1000 mile trip and the lock was a real life saver. The lock was very easy to install.(5 minutes tops). It takes a little practice to get used to engaging it smoothly but after a few times, it's very easy. Can't imagine not having it.

Does it work with the new 2014 dl1000 adventure bike?

Will this item work with the Suzuki OEM hand guards?
A shopper on Jun 28, 2015
BEST ANSWER: My Vstrom 650 does not have hand guards so I ordered the Kaoko throttle control to fit my application. I can tell you, installation was very easy and am thoroughly thrilled using it when road allows.
Will this fit if I have an aftermarket brush guard on my grips?

Thanks !
Jeff M on Sep 9, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I think they have one specifically designed to fit with brush guard. I don't have brush guards on my bike so am not sure if this one will fit. I think you need the one designed for this.
Does it work with redesigned 2014 dl1000?
