Kaoko Throttle Lock Triumph Thunderbird 1600/1700

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.


  • 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...fast delivery
Awesome product, looking forward to my ride from Los Angeles to Seattle this spring even more now that when my wrist starts getting sore I'll be able to rest it a little. Only problem with this item is that the instructions say to use the OEM handle bar weight screw to install, turns out the original screw is about 3/8" too short, no problem, found a perfect replacement at a nearby hardware store.

This item is a must for any bike
Had an iron butt trip ahead of me prior to the purchase of this product. The trip would not have been the same without one. I initially thought the cost was high but soon found out that similar throttle locks were just as expensive but lacked in functionality. This one of the best purchases I have ever made .

Well built and functional.
I ordered this throttle lock assembly for my 2014 Triumph Commander. The end cap was wider than the stock unit, so it was necessary to buy a longer bolt. No big deal but it did require a trip to the local nut and bolt store to match heads.
Functionally it works well but if your hand moves to the outside of the throttle grip, it is possible to turn the friction nut causing the throttle to remain open. Again, no big deal because it takes very little force to shut it down. One could back the friction nut off a couple turns when not in use. Overall, it works well and I am happy to have one to give my right hand an occasional rest.

Product works great but comes incomplete
Kaoko produces bike specific throttle locks. For this reason I do not understand why the product does not include the screw needed for installation. It took me 5 minutes to install the throttle lock, Unfortunately it took me 40 minutes and two hardware stores to find the screw. The product works as advertised. It is easy to operate and it blends well into the bike.
