Kaoko Throttle Lock Triumph Tiger 800 / 800XC / Explorer 1200

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

Kaoko Throttle Lock Triumph Tiger 800/800XC/Explorer 1200 4.6 5 41 41
Well made, works great I'm using it on a 2013 Triumph Tiger 800. It literally took 3 minutes to install. You simply take the old screw out and put this in (use a dab of loctite on the threads of the Kaoko bolt) and tighten... done. It looks great too. The knurls are for your glove material to grab from the edge of your little finger. You can roll the lock on or off. The Throttlemeister on my 94 R1100RS is smooth and sometimes I have to move my whole hand onto it to roll it on or off if that makes sense. The only reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is price. I suppose we're paying for the word KAOKO embedded into the lock. Either way it's better than any other lock I've ever used. ALl future bikes will get one if KAOKO makes it! July 5, 2014
Makes a difference Easy to use however it should be called a throttle assist not a cruise control; makes a big difference on long highway trips to ease wrist fatigue. July 21, 2014
It Works! I tried different brand throttle lock and it failed no matter what how I adjusted it. The Kaoko works just great on my 2011 F650 GS. Very happy with it. July 21, 2014
Kaoko Throttle Lock Kawasaki Ninja 1000/Z1000 2010-2013 I bought the Koako throttle lock for a 1000 mile trip into Eastern Oregon. The install on my 2014 Kawasaki Ninja 1000 ABS was easy. Take off the stock bar end and install the Kaoko. The unit works as advertised. It is truely a one handed engage, which I understand is not the case on other type friction locks. my only complaint was the engagement ring. On long trips I tend to lean on the bar end and over time it began to hurt my right hand. I'll probably grind some of the material off that ring to make it more comfortable. July 21, 2014
Great hand saver on long rides Great looking product. Does what it should while looking like it is part of the bike and not an add-on. A bit pricey but it is well made. Highly recommend it for the long distance rider who needs to give his right hand a much needed pause. July 8, 2014
Pricy, but well made. Well made, good looking piece that works as advertised. It does come at a price though. Overall it is no replacement for an active cruise control but it does allow one to stretch their right hand. July 8, 2014
This product works great I put this cruise control on my 08 stratoliner midnight it was very easy to install only took about five minutes. I have put around 600 miles on my bike since installing the kaoko throttle lock I have not had any problems with it would defiantly recommend it easy to use works great and it is adjustable. It is a hand saver July 8, 2014
LOVE IT! I oder the product prior to my 1,100 miles trip. Went up to 1,000 Island NY from Baltimore MD and I see it over 50% of the trip on 81North. The product was great and very helpful. Easy to use and great design. HIGHLY recomended. July 7, 2014

C S: Recommended by a friend. Works well for what it does, but does not maintain speed like true cruise-control. Jul 2, 2014
John R: I borrowed my brother's to do an Iron Butt ride and it made a huge difference in my comfort. It worked well and allowed me to remove my throttle hand from the bars for a break. Mar 26, 2014
JeanPablo R: My hand would go numb after a while and with the Kaoko I can at least rest my accelerating hand every now and then. Love this thing. Dec 9, 2013
