    Throttle Lock or Cruise Control

    Guys. I just got back into the Blackbird family with the purchase of a '97 last month. I had a '98 from '01-07 but it was stolen 3 times. I was lucky enough to get it back the first 2 times. Anyone come across this VIN let me know. JH2SC350XWM100786 Thanks.

    Enough about that.

    I'm trying to figure out if I want to get a Koako throttle lock or if there is another option for full electronic CC. Please advise. I have a 3 hr trip coming up and I need some relief on my hand and wrist. Thanks!

    A throtle lock will take 10 mins to install and cost less than $100. Electronic cruise control will take a day or more to instal and set you back more than $500, if you can find one. If you want something short term go with a throttle lock. If you do lots of long distance and want real speed control consider the real thing.

    I use a NEP CC3 lock and it works fine for me. Vista supposed to be good too. $30.
    No good deed goes unpunished!

    Vista works well for little outlay, I found kakoe fiddly and it's also an expensive bit of kit.

    Route 191 formerly Route 666 Some say that this section of the
    road has 1100 curves in 95 miles.

    The other option is the Jaws Throttle Lock, designed/created by a knowledgeable and longtime BlackBird owner/rider.

    Re: Throttle Lock or Cruise Control

    I've used throttle locks. Cheap and expensive. Used the hard flap like pictured above. Had Beestoy's electronic cruise control installed and would never go back to anything else. If you plan on longer forays it is money well spent. If you use your bike for going for a 1 hr ride money wasted.

    Boils down to the $$$$ Bees cruise control is the BEST but of the budget doesn't allow then a throttle lock will work I have used em for decades in some form or another.

    I did look at the MC Cruise a few years back but at a grand it's way over the odds especially when it needs to be fitted

    Beestoys one does look nice and the price is not bad but I don't do as much long distance riding as I used to so I think I'll just save up for the Goldwing the missus wants us to get
