Question cruze control

http://www.blackdogcw.com/EZCRUZ_Kaoko_overview.html

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.

It can't be from that site, those are all made for 1" cruiser style handlebars, where as the V has the 7/8th" Sport sized bars.

That looks like my next add-on.

How does the manual override work, do you just roll-off the throttle?

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.

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.

HTH.
