Kaoko Throttle Lock Triumph Tiger 800 / Explorer 1200 / Street Triple Videos

Kaoko Throttle Lock Triumph Tiger 800 / 800XC / Explorer 1200 / XC / Street Triple / R

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 - For Tiger 800/XC With OEM Handguards

Type B - For all bikes With or without Barkbuster VPS & Storm Handguards


  • 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 / Explorer 1200 / Street Triple 4.8 5 11 11
Good throttle lock Easy to install. Works very well at locking throttle. Reduces hand and wrist cramping on long rides. Easy to adjust amount of tension. October 22, 2015
Installs easy. Works as advertised. Easy to install. Looks good on the bike. I prefer to use it a little different than the instructions. I like to tighten it down and then set the throttle where I want it as opposed to turning it with the throttle to get it locked in. It is just really hard to hit the tension at the right spot like that. Particularly on anything less than perfect roads. September 1, 2015
Must have for long distance riding I just got back from a 4,600+ mile trip over a two week period. This was the first time I really used the throttle lock, and it made a huge difference. The first day of the trip I didn't really make use of Kaoko and I felt it in my right hand that night after doing just over 500 miles. From the second day on I made full use of the throttle lock, and it made a huge difference. Long miles are tiring and anything you can do to reduce fatigue helps, and this device absolutely helps with reducing the fatigue on your right hand. It would be nice to have real cruise control, but that's not a real option for my current bike, so this is the next best thing. July 1, 2015
Why didn't I buy this sooner? Incredibly easy to fit. You don't notice it's there when you don't need it. On longer trips it reduces fatigue in your hand and allows you to stretch your upper body more easily. Simple to engage and disengage. March 9, 2015
Great product! Thist is a must have product for riding any distance. It is good quality and installs quick and easy. It is easy to operate and works well. Takes a lot of strain out of your hand and wrist trying to hold the throttle steady on the hi way. January 12, 2015
Indispensable for long rides Like most people I was hesitant to buy this product given its price tag. I decided to bite the bullet before I set off on a 3,000 mile road trip on my Tiger... Best decision I ever made. I would have been miserable without the throttle lock. It takes a little getting used to but it's very easy to use. It's a piece of cake to install and works surprisingly very well. After two straight weeks of constant use I didn't notice any wear. I can now engage/disengage it without thinking. It's very easy to adjust your speed and easy to override in an emergency. Stays out of the way when you don't need it. December 16, 2014
Great product! This is a quality piece and it works great. Easy to install as well. September 12, 2014

John H: I installed the Kaoko on my Tiger 800 with Triumph hand guards. It went on easily and quickly. I'd assume that the same would be the case with the Barkbusters but can't be sure. May 5, 2015

Jonathan P: I just installed the Kaoko fitment type B on my 2014 Street Triple yesterday and it went on without a hitch. You just simply unscrew the stock bar end weight and then screw on the Kaoko with the plastic friction washer thing. I don't think there is any difference between the '13 and '14 Striples that would make it not work for you. After I installed mine there a slight gap between the throttle grip and the friction nut, requiring me to give it a few turns to engage it, but that is fine, it makes more deliberate instead of having a chance of accidentally engaging it on city streets. Hope that helps. Jun 2, 2015
