Kaoko Throttle Lock Kawasaki ER-6N / KLR650 / Ninja 650R / ZX-12R / ZX-14R / Concours ZG1000 / ZG1400

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: Compatible with and without OEM handguards.

Type B: Compatible with Barkbuster VPS and 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

Definatly a must have.
1. Excellent service and speedy delivery from Revzilla.
2. Great product. Solid materials
3. Installation instructions require a bit of guess work but are easy enough to work out. The use of the Allen Key adjustment is not explained effectively but not a big deal.
4. Great for cruising short and long trips. Definitely a must for long trips. Hills simply require an adjustment of throttle. Perfect for highway cruising.
HINT: WHEN IN LOWER GEARS use the clutch to avoid compression shunting while you are engaging the throttle lock. (In case the throttle lock has not engaged yet and the throttle slips to neutral).

People don't be scared if someone says it's dangerous. You can still return the throttle to neutral manually when the lock is engaged. This lock simply makes the throttle stay where you leave it (but only when engaged though). The only problem I see is if you fall off the bike then the bike will still rev if the locks engaged. Big problems if the bike stays upright though as it will travel off into infinity and beyond OR until it hits something OR it runs out of fuel.

Every bike I own will have this product from now on. Only if I die masterbating or texting now I that I can ride two hands free will I change my mind.

Excellent product - Requires deep wallet
I installed the Kaoko Throttle lock on my 2011 Kawasaki Concours roughly 12 weeks ago. Since installation I have put about 2,000 miles on my Connie, with about half of that being highway miles.

First Impression-

I received the box in the mail in a timely manner (thanks to revzilla) and noticed the weight of the small box. Wow! There was definitely a solid chunk of metal in there. Opened the package and revealed the throttle lock device. It had a nice heavy coat (powdercoat?) of matte black paint on it which matched my other handlebar end quite well. The entire device looked as thought it as machine turned out of high quality aluminum. The texture, whether it was from the paint or the surface finish quality of the part itself, was a little more "rough" than the OE bar end.


Not much here, it was very easy and straight forward. In about 5 minutes I had my new Kaoko throttle lock installed. For my model application, you must use the included nylon washer to make up for the extra gap between the throttle grip and throttle lock, or else you would most likely run out of threads before locking the grip (assumption).


Being my very first throttle lock to use on a bike, I will admit it took some getting used to. It was a bit awkward having to roll back on the rotating piece (reverse threaded) of the throttle lock which in turn locks the grip. With some practice, you can hold the throttle steady while locking it in place. Once it is locked in place - it is a solid, firm hold. I can cruise all day with the lock set for 70 mph and it will not move at all.

Final review

Pros- High quality materials used, solid construction. Durable finishes (powdercoat/anodized?). Locks in place without slipping during rides.

Cons- Surface finish a bit more textured that OE so not a perfect match, $$$$$$$$$$.

Overall, excellent product. In the end, you get what you pay for. I would highly recommend to others.

Solid product, smooth operation!
This throttle lock is an absolute requisite before a road trip and a great alternative to a full cruise control system costing hundreds. The Kaoko throttle lock is weighted nicely, fluid in operation and very easy to install.

It works!
If Kawi would add cruise to the C14, I would trade my 2012 in today. In the meantime, this thottle lock will have to do.

It is a very smart and safe design.

Real handy on long trips.
Added this device last year and it took a bit to install. The spacing was real tight and I was instructed to push down the throttle assembly to make room. I was finally able to get it on but not as well as I thought it should be. I have used it a few times and it serves it purpose.

I just did 1250 miles in two days and this saved my wrist. I am so glad I bought this product. I was leery of the price at first but am so happy with it. Additionally, it was as easy to install as they claim, it took me less than two minutes.

Quick and Easy
Couldn't beat this device. Installs in 5 minutes, no alterations or adustments, just plug and play simplicity. I installed this and was out riding in a few minutes and it worked flawlessly. I had looked at electronic cruise controls but didn't want the complicated install, For what I needed, to give my hand some relief on long rides, it works great.

Kawi Concourse 1400 2013 - STILL NO E-CRUISE!! Grr... Anyway this is the next best solution. I like the nubby edges. I rest my pinky on it when cruising, which makes it very easy to to roll the lock open if I need to decelerate.

On long trip, not being able to relax your right hand is very uncomfortable.
Jose A on Aug 4, 2014
Looked at all the throttle lock options out there, break away, vistacruise, throttlemeister, and this is the simplest design I've seen. With its simplicity, it's easy to see that if you were to get in a situation where you needed to roll back the throttle while locked, it would not impede your doing so. The others have mixed reviews on that front (especially the breakaway at high temps... scary stuff). As safety is most important to me, I went with this one.

BEST ANSWER: Look at Kaoko's website there is an option that says "can't find your bike". You then enter your name, email, and bike. They are in Africa so it might take a couple days for them to respond.
2011 kaw concourse 14 abs. Which kaoko throttle lock do I need?
A C on Sep 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: You need the A if you have a standard handle bar set up. B is if you have a brush guard attached to your handle bar..
If I purchase the one with the bar end weight for a klr650, can I latter modify it to be able to install barbuster handguards?
A shopper on Jan 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Yes. I installed my Kaoko Throttle Lock at the same time that I installed the Barkbuster Handguards, and it came out great. If you install both at the same time, for my Kawasaki Versys 650, I didn't even need the weighted ends, as the Barkbusters (I installed the guards that connect at the end of the handlebars and also connect further up the bar) seem to have enough weight on both sides of the handlebar to prevent vibrations. If you want to play it safe I was advised to buy the weighted end for the side opposite the throttle lock (which would be the left side) to offset the throttle lock weight differential. But again, no noticeable difference to me, but I always ride with either gel gloves or winter gloves. The handlebars never shake. One note: If you are planning to install the throttle lock now and then add handguards later, I'd advise using low-strength lock-tite, and not the high strength, or you may not be able to remove the throttle lock down the line...I haven't used the high strength lock-tite, but supposedly it basically welds the screw/shaft metals together and you have to cut the bolt out. Installing both the throttle lock and handguards look great together and are very functional. I can ride a lot longer in cold weather without hand freeze and the lock is great for Interstate riding or taking quick on-the-go hand breaks on longer rides.
