Has any one tried these on the V or know of a similar product that will work. I saw a fellow V rider at the overlook at deals gap a few weeks ago and I beleive he had one of these on his bike. He said he liked it real well and it was easy to use. Any info would be appreciated.
has anyone tried the brakeaway device...i've email several times to see if they had a unit for the v...and they keep saying no....but they have one for the v-strom...and i've measured and took pictures of both to compare...and i think it would work.
The amount of friction is adjustable. Either way if you turn throttle closed, it moves the friction nut just enough to disengage. You must manually reset it back to where it was (1/16th of a turn). I've had a vista cruise on a previous bike and the nuts were rusty in a year and also ate up a few inches of grip space. The Kaoko is exactly what I was looking for. Highly recommended.
Integrity is doing the right thing, even if nobody is watching.
Another option is Throttlemeister. For $18 more you get a complete set of matching bar ends (with matching finish in black, or stainless, or polished stainless) and can also get 'em heavier than stock for $30 more. http://www.throttlemeister.com/
The versions for the Versys are the the same as many other models (Ninja 650R is the easiest to remember; FT & AK1 are Throttlemeister's part numbers for the standard weight ones while FH & AK1-H are the heavy varieties), so order those. $113 for the standard variety, $125 for the heavy, with different finish options adding different amounts ($10-$20) on top of the base prices.
