Kaoko Throttle Lock Cruise Control on Hand Guards???

Has anyone added the Kaoko Throttle Lock Cruise Control to a Hand Guard install???

I have the KTM Guards like Bones has installed and would like to add the Kaoko Throttle Lock Cruise Control to this set up...

It shows on the Twisted Throttle site the Kaoko works on a Bark Buster set up... And at least to me,,, it looks like this should work on almost any Hand Guard set up???

Anyone have an install like this or an opinion???

I THINK,,, it has a washer thingy that fits under the grip... That is what is making the grip looked crushed as you say...

We will soon enough find out... If there is a way to screw up the install,,, rest assured I will travel that road...

Well,,, I got the Kaoka Throttle Lock Thingy!!!

So,,, how easy was it to install on my Versys with KTM Hand Guards installed???

The Only thing easier is dropping small powdered donuts in my Pie hole!!!

# 1 ~~~ Step one,,, un bolt the Handguard from the handlebar end...

# 2 ~~~ Put the rubber washer thingy on so the lip connects to the plastic shieve of the throttle control...

# 3 ~~~ Install the Kaoka Throttle thingy so the big flat black washer looking end is towards the outside...

# 4 ~~~ Reinstall the handguard as before...

SHAZZAM!!!

My guess??? 2 minutes from start to finish,,, with 2 additional minutes inspecting thinking,,, it can't be that easy,,, but,,, it is!!!

Thanks for taking the risk, this sounds like the combination I am looking for.
Could you post a picture of the finished install.
Thank You

Does it move the handguard out any? Or does it all fit in the little gap that exists between the ktm handguard and the stock grip?
