Kaoko® Friction Cruise Control for Most Motorcycles
Adding cruise control to most motorcycles ranges somewhere between impossible and outrageously expensive, but a friction-style cruise can be an affordable option. The best friction cruise control in our experience is the Kaoko motorcycle cruise control. The friction nut on the Kaoko cruise control has a left-hand thread, so you can grip it with your palm and small finger when you roll on the throttle and tighten it to the tension needed to maintain the throttle in the desired position. The friction nut won’t prevent you from turning the throttle, but it will add resistance to the movement. Disengage by gripping the friction nut as before and rolling off the throttle. The Kaoko friction cruise control can be fitted to many motorcycles and reduces rider fatigue and strain on your hand and wrist on long rides.
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.
Kaoko™ Safety Warning: The Kaoko™ Cruise Control is an aftermarket accessory. Any misunderstood, abused or incorrectly installed motorcycle accessory is a safety hazard that could cause injury or death. 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. At all other times the control should be disengaged. The Kaoko™ Cruise Controls are to be used only by experienced and responsible riders.
