Take Me Home, Capt!

Witness the Kaoko Throttle Lock. In case you are not familiar with the product, it is essentially a bar end, mechanical, cruise control for motorcycle. Tired of a numb throttle hand? Ready to stop and rest your hand after less than an hour in the twisties? Stupid question, huh? Here's the solution, my friends for when the road turns straight, boring, and painful. IMHO a Kaoko Throttle Lock is the most important and useful accessory you can add to your sport bike. I have one on all my bikes.

The South African-made Kaoko Throttle Lock comes in black only and is compatible with heated grips. Unlike Throttlemiester throttle lock kits (which are no longer available) the Kaoko kit does NOT include a replacement left-side bar end weight. It installs on the right hand side only. Install is chimp-easy*. Just remove the right hand bar weight, replace it with Kaoko's bar weight, and firmly tighten the bar end bolt. Bam.. Done. * Chimp not included.
