Kaoko® Friction Cruise Control for Most Motorcycles
Kaoko Cruise Controls are our favorite friction cruise control. We have tried many on the market but the Kaoko in our opinion performs its function the best. Kaoko's are easy to install, look great, and work great with summer & winter gloves. The Kaoko Cruise Controls consist of a friction nut that is integral with a replacement handlebar-end weight if your motorcycle has a handlebar-end weight.
Features & Benefits:
* Greatly reduces rider fatigue and strain on hand and wrist
* While cruising, rider is able to remove hand from throttle grip, throttle opening will remain as set
* Very simple to operate, even with heavy winter gloves
* High quality, compact and durable design, super smooth action
* Takes less than 5 minutes to fit
* Very little maintenance is required
* Less wear and tear on throttle cables and linkages
* Can result in reduced fuel consumption
To install, just remove the right hand bar weight (if your motorcycle has a bar weight), replace it with Kaoko's bar weight (if applicable), apply lock tight, and firmly tighten the central retaining screw.
The friction nut has a left-hand thread. It must be adjusted so that it makes light contact with the rubber throttle sleeve.
To Engage: While rolling on the throttle, the friction nut can be gripped between the small finger and palm of hand. This action tightens the nut and provides sufficient friction to set throttle to the desired opening. (The friction is such that the rider may still open and close the throttle. It simply has a slight stiffness to it.)
To Disengage: While rolling off the throttle, grip friction nut between small finger and palm of hand. The throttle should open and snap closed freely when correctly disengaged.

It’s the rider’s responsibility to understand the operation and purpose for which the Kaoko™ Cruise Control is designed, namely, for cruising, only when safe to do so.
