Best Throttle control/ throttle lock

Hey everyone,

Looking for the best throttle contoller/ throttle lock. I have a bar end throttle lock on my Concours, which works great, but the versys has hand protectors, so I don't believe this is an option.

Any suggestions of your best solution is very welcome!

Go Cruise

Had the cheaper plastic one, it flew apart, Twisted Throttle replaced it + the difference in $$ with the aluminum one. I also had the Vista cruise on my 07, however it was a challenge to mount, and with heated grips I wouldn't consider it anymore.

I also use the Go Cruise and love it. It's so intuitive and easy to use.

I've used a number of different ones......BreakAway is the best one but pretty pricey.

The breakaway is definitely a slick system. My buddy has one and it works great. Says its not compatible with heated grips though? I wonder why.

The omni cruise is nice, but also pricey, there are a number of knockoffs for half the price. I tried the plastic cheapo version and it worked decently well.

The Break away, you need to be a engineer, I can't imagine what the cost is, I would suggest to try going to a actual cruise control if that is what you are trying to accomplish https://www.kawasakiversys.com/forum...cruise+control

Lots of knock offs, https://www.twistedthrottle.ca/go-cr...-auminum-black $50 if you think that is expensive try the Kaoko

https://www.twistedthrottle.ca/shop-...s-650-15/kaoko $185

the Atlas throttle lock looks interesting. At $135, significantly cheaper than the brakeaway or kaoko
