    Easy to install and easy to use. Very well made and is very helpful in preventing a sore grip and cramping on long stretches.

    5 minute install

    marcham

    By far the easiest farkle to install on the 2012+ DL650. Just had to trim a little rubber off the heated grip so that it was flush with the throttle tube. Works fine with OEM handguards and Oxford heated grips.

    Works Very Well

    Works great. A little awkward at first, but once you get use to it, it’s breeze.

  5. RoadTimer

    Simple ... and it works.

    Had the Kaoko Throttle Lock installed late in the riding season, but I have had the opportunity to try it on shorter runs this fall. It works exactly as advertised. It takes a little getting use to to engage, but it is simple and works well, allowing you to ride along at a steady speed while moving and stretching your right hand. The oddest feeling was not having a hand on the right grip (that’s where one of the brakes is, right?), but quick changes can be made easily (including disengaging) as you ride.

    It is not a true cruise control in that your speed is not maintained going up or down hills, but you can make adjustments even with the lock engaged when the road grade changes. It is also very unobtrusive and looks great on my V-strom 650, and there were no issues with the heated grips or the hand guards. Looking forward to putting it to use on some long rides next season!

    Excellent

    BusyBob

    Installed on 2015 DL650A. Easy to use. Works very well. Have not tried in the rain, so don’t know if water will act as lube and reduce friction. Great to be able to remove throttle hand now and then.

    easy installation, works great

    Very well made. Instructions were fair to good. I installed this device on my 2014 Suzuki Vstrom 1000. Works better than any other throttle lock I have tried. Expensive, but solid as a rock.

    The Kaoko throttle lock was easy to install.

    Freedom

    I would have liked a little more instruction on in american standard units, But the speed lock works great, I drive 50 miles one way and it gives my right hand a needed break and I would recommend the product to anyone that needs to get some circulation back to their hand, and making adjustments to the speed is easy just stiff but that’s to be expected since its tension related, I enjoy the freedom.
