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

Type C: For Tiger 1200 Explorer with OEM handguards Only

Right hand relief..... ....no, you cannot change to your left hand for this, and so it will give you some right hand relief and rest on long hauls. Easy to install and good quality. Shipped to Norway - no problem :-) August 10, 2016
Not Cruise control...a throttle lock A very nice piece of kit. But be clear this does not hold your bike at a particular speed it locks the throttle. This means that if you set it at 55 on a flat road it will go slower up a hill and faster (sometimes WAY faster) down a hill. This works by sneaking your hand out to the end of the grip and rotating it down until it tightens and holds the throttle in place. Once engaged, you are able to make adjustments to speed, it just stays where you leave it. To disengage you sneak your hand out to the end and turn it away from you. It takes very little turning to release it. It's clever engineering, but you need to understand that it is not cruise control. I am VERY much going to love not having to hold that throttle on my longer rides. i can now give the occasional wave (or a choice finger) or point to debris (though I should use my foot for that.) VERY easy to install and it comes with a sticker...love me some stickers!. I rate it 4 stars because it does seem a bit pricey and I've got to think there should be some more innovation put against how the thing releases. August 2, 2016
good product that functions well. easy to install easy to use and no interference with handguard. it works great July 26, 2016
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
