Kaoko Throttle Lock Suzuki V-Strom 650/1000 With OEM Handguards

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.

Features:

  • Will work with or without OEM heated grips
  • 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
  • Options for either OEM or Pro-Taper handlebars with OEM handguards equipped
  • Barkbuster Handguard compatible model available (sold separately)

Perfect .......almost
I had to purchase the Kaoko throttle lock for my 2008 Suzuki GSF 1250S Bandit that I had installed the DL1000 hand guards onto. I previously had the Throttlmeister throttle lock, which looked great, but it won't work with hand guards and it doesn't work properly with heated grips. Whenever I turned on my Bikemaster heated grips the Throttlemeister would lock the throttle when turned fully off. This was too dangerous so I bought the Kaoko and it works perfectly with the heated grips. My complaint is, for what they charge for this thing you would think they would include a matching bar end weight for the other side. Kind of cheesy that they don't. The Throttlemeister included a great looking bar end weight.

Just works - no questions asked - just works
I tried several others throttle lockers and they all just left me going "I wish this worked a little better". I finally decided to give this a try.

Installation took about 5 minutes. It is amazing that they make one specifically for my set up - as there are probably like 1% of all Vstrom owners with this exact set up. Everything basically just goes on and works instantly.

I rated this a 3 star in finish, because I am picky and like symmetric things. If they offered (even for a small fee) a replacement bar weight for the left side, it would be a 5. The finish on the actual product is great. Nothing bad - just wish it matched the other side! Then again, I could probably just get real and say ... I cant see both ends of the bars at the same time from close enough to notice the distance ...

Overall - a GREAT PRODUCT!

Next best thing to cruise control
Simple to fit and works a treat. The only thing I have noticed is that when you first engage it against the throttle and then remove your hand from the bar the bike tends to accelerate by itself up to around 5 to 10kph from the initial setting. Once you get used to it its easy to correct to the desired speed but at first it was slightly un nerving.

Its well made and makes such a difference on a long ride even if you just use it for a few seconds every now and again.

Almost two years of use
As the title says I had mine for almost 2 years on my 2013 VStrom 650 and I am very happy with it. I could not imagine riding without it (I average over 1000 miles a month for recreational purposes only).
I would buy it again if my next bike had no electronic cruise control.

Easy to install, easy to use, but a bit pricey,
It comes with two sets of flat washers for this unit, but forget to say that you only choose the one that fits your bike best.
After a bit of head-scratching/banging, I got it installed and it functions properly.
Would also like it better if the bolt was a little longer, so that the tensioning apparatus is not so close to the end of the bar.

Almost cruise
The kaoko throttle lock works well for what it is. Does take a little adjusting. Fit was spot on and finish is good. It's not cruise control but works like it is supposed to.

Wish I had it from the beginning
I purchased my bike from a dealer located about 500 miles from where I live and flew out to pick it up and ride it back. It was nine long hours on the interstate. When I arrived home, the only thing that hurt worse than my backside was my right wrist. I really could have used the Kaoko for that ride.

That being said, it does take a bit of getting used to to be able to set it on the fly. But after a few tries, it works like a champ. Just wish is was a little cheaper.

Product is well made and installation is relatively easy.
Not cruise control, but a very good alternative. The Kaoko is well made and should be durable. Installation is easy once you know what to do.
