I got and installed the Break Away throttle lock and love it. It is really well machined and put together. I did have to modify the arm that goes under the handle bar so the bracket that holds the rear view mirror could be rotated back up in the near vertical position. I am a bit of a perfectionist, so installation took me about 5 hours start to finish. I wrote Break Away with pictures, no reply, I think because of a liability issue they would somehow be responsible for what I did if they approved.
Unit is really well thought out and printed instructions are top notch, lots of pictures. There are also on line videos of instillation. Not hard at all. Lots of adjustment available as well.
It works really well, snaps off the control when squeezing the front break, thus the "Break Away" feature. I have about 6,000 miles on mine now and use it like second nature.
I really wish Kawasaki would go with an electronic unit, but as you know, throttle control is by cable, so not possible at this point. Even the Concourus still uses cable system....
Only niggle, when I have ridden in the soaking driving rain, the friction that holds the throttle on weakens because of being soaked in water. When unit dries out, it goes back to normal.
