Kaoko Throttle Lock Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200Z 2010-2013 Videos

Kaoko Throttle Lock Yamaha Super Tenere XT1200 Z  

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

Expensive! Expensive! Expensive! Why this product costs what it does is beyond understanding. That being said, I don’t recall anyone holding a gun to my head as I reluctantly went through with the purchase. Because of its outrageous price I give it a fair rating in the bang for the buck category. In my 42+ years of riding I have never put any accessory on Motorcycle as fast and easy. Ease of install is excellent! Performance is as advertised I rate it good. In addition to its intended use it does seem to take out a little of the slop in the XT1200’s throttle if adjusted correctly. On the down side is the length of the OEM grips on the Super T which measure 5.25 inches which make it necessary to slide your hand to the outside to use it. I also rate the finish as good. It looks cool. Only reason I did not rate the finish as excellent is because the friction nut is made of plastic. Which also led to my average rating for durability. I haven’t had it long enough to be able to tell for sure. I would have preferred the friction nut to be made of aluminum. The sole reason I would not recommend this product is the sky high price tag. There are other products on the market that will work almost as well for about 15% of the cost and are able to be moved quickly and easily from bike to bike to boot. But if aesthetics are important by all means buy it. July 18, 2015
works great but a little pricey This is very simple easy to install product that woks great.It is however a little pricey for what it is. June 22, 2015
perfect cruiser perfect product for your bike, in your long trips you will be very thankful. good price , awesome quality May 18, 2015
Good product, high priced - only option The Kaoko Throttle Lock is a well made piece of hardware and I have no doubt it will last many years. The only reason I mark it down is because of the price - its awfully expensive for a throttle lock. Unfortunately its also your only option for a throttle lock for many cycles, my 2012 Super Tenere amongst them. Very easy to install - took 5 minutes. Works well. I find that I need a throttle lock fairly often. This one works very well. April 20, 2015
great addition to a great bike. I am very pleased with the kaoko. My Alaska trip was great but would have been different without it. Cal08 September 8, 2014
Great product I haven’t had the opportunity to use the throttle lock yet but it seems like a very high quality product. Installation took about five minutes and I have no experience installing throttle locks. I am very satisfied with the quality and it came highly recommended. May 12, 2014
very easy This thing was so easy to install I had it on the bike before the u p s driver was out of my driveway..Very simple design,easy to install and works perfectly on long rides...I would recommend this product to anyone who is a long haul rider April 23, 2014
Works as advertised! Excellent design allows for easy use. It's simple to use the edge of my right palm to rotate the throttle lock into the locked position and rotate it to the unlocked position on the move. Creates just the right amount of drag on the throttle to hold it steady while still being able to adjust the throttle for changing terrain. Great product, better than other devices I've used in the past. January 25, 2014

T A: Factory friction or lock was not available in 2012 for my 1200. Would not recommend this. Throttle lock is pretty bad idea. Better to have none. Removed it. Jan 25, 2015
Michael A: This has got to be the best bang for the buck accessory I have bought for my bike! It's amazing how much more relaxed I am on those long stretches heading to my favorite twisty roads! Jun 29, 2014
Steve S: Because my wrist gets tired after a while on longer trips. I wanted something substantial and easy to operate. Jun 12, 2014
Dave W: easier on the hands on long rides May 30, 2014
Leonard L: This item came highly recommended for use during long rides. May 11, 2014
Andrew W: Looks to be the simplest solution. Since the Tenere has hand protectors, it isn't as simple to use a standard throttle locker. This looks simple and easy. Jan 1, 2014
