Vista or Nep Cruise modification needed?

I am looking at putting a NEP or Vista Cruise on my 2009. Has anybody done this and if so, did they install easily as packaged or did you have to make modifications?

I did modify the standard vista cruise. I had to dremel the interior portion to fit over the ridge on the throttle tube, and I stuck a small screw into the starter button housing to hold it when engaged. Took me maybe a half and hour, and was well worth it.

You'll need to modify the throttle lock, as CL said, the throttle tube has a ridge that creates too much friction with the TL. I went the other way and filed the throttle tube. See this thread.

Gustavo-

WHY,WHY, WHY did I not file the throttle tube? What is wrong with me, why do I make things so hard?

I'm an idiot.

This was my solution, all it needs is a longer bolt on the top of the brake reservoir mount and a 1/2" spacer.







No other cutting trimming or alterations.

I did mine the same as Machog did (AFTER I read his post, months ago!).
Works GREAT!
