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.


  • Will work with and without OEM heated grips
  • 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

Perfect!!! Simple to install. Functions perfectly. A well executed design. August 2, 2016
Wish I had it from the beginning I purchased my bike from a dealer located about 500 miles from where I live and flew out to pick it up and ride it back. It was nine long hours on the interstate. When I arrived home, the only thing that hurt worse than my backside was my right wrist. I really could have used the Kaoko for that ride. That being said, it does take a bit of getting used to to be able to set it on the fly. But after a few tries, it works like a champ. Just wish is was a little cheaper. July 1, 2016
Almost cruise The kaoko throttle lock works well for what it is. Does take a little adjusting. Fit was spot on and finish is good. It's not cruise control but works like it is supposed to. June 28, 2016
Product is well made and installation is relatively easy. Not cruise control, but a very good alternative. The Kaoko is well made and should be durable. Installation is easy once you know what to do. May 31, 2016
Easy to install, easy to use, but a bit pricey, It comes with two sets of flat washers for this unit, but forget to say that you only choose the one that fits your bike best. After a bit of head-scratching/banging, I got it installed and it functions properly. Would also like it better if the bolt was a little longer, so that the tensioning apparatus is not so close to the end of the bar. April 19, 2016
Just works - no questions asked - just works I tried several others throttle lockers and they all just left me going "I wish this worked a little better". I finally decided to give this a try. Installation took about 5 minutes. It is amazing that they make one specifically for my set up - as there are probably like 1% of all Vstrom owners with this exact set up. Everything basically just goes on and works instantly. I rated this a 3 star in finish, because I am picky and like symmetric things. If they offered (even for a small fee) a replacement bar weight for the left side, it would be a 5. The finish on the actual product is great. Nothing bad - just wish it matched the other side! Then again, I could probably just get real and say ... I cant see both ends of the bars at the same time from close enough to notice the distance ... Overall - a GREAT PRODUCT! March 11, 2016
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. September 15, 2014
