Kaoko

Ok, so this has ALREADY been asked, but not exactly answered. Alternatives were given, but NOT a solution.

Kaoko Throttle lock. Versys 2016 650 LT (the one with the OEM grip protectors, NOT "Barkbusters", but OEM). WHICH Kaoko Throttle lock should I purchase? The one WITH the end cap, or the one WITHOUT the end cap?

I thought this was a simple question with a simple answer, but maybe not. I'm not looking for "other" throttle locks or workarounds.

Thanks for your help!

Give Twisted Throttle a call. I spoke to them a few years ago at a bike rally, and they were VERY knowledgeable. I have a Kaoko throttle lock and its nice on the highways. Sorry I cant help with your exact question though.

I have what you need, I got it, but didn't like the style. I am used to lever type, so I am not using it. 45.00 plus shipping.

You need part number KAW200. It comes with the replacement end weight I have one on my 2015 LT with OEM handguards, but it fits later models. Check Twisted Throttle for example. I'm not endorsing them, but they have the part since I purchased mine from there. The parts are pricey though. FWIW

I hope I helped and didn't make a situation worse! I enjoy mine immensely and use it more than most people would seem to deem safe. YMMV The comfort is the #1 reason, but it helps me stay within shouting distance of the speed limits. I hate getting speeding tickets.
