cruise control

my only isssue with long rides is my right hand cramping up or going numb. i cant seem to finde any kind of cruise control devices for sportbikes. my dad has one on his vstar that just clams to the throtle tube, but it doesnt look like it would work on a sportbike. anyone have one or know where i could find them?

Re: cruise control

I know theres a thing on Ebay that goes over your grip and points toward you so all you have to do is rest your arm on it.

I have one on my R1. It is a little pricey, but works pretty good. It looks like a bar end.

You can make your throttle stick using a rubber band

In theory, all you have to do is the idle cable mod that everyone does on their stunt bikes. I have it on my f4i and did it to my old 954.

All the idle cable is for us is essentially a throttle lock. I use it for idle tricks and what not, but for you, it could be your highway throttle lock.

If i click my f4i into 6th and crank on the idle cable up, it is essentially a throttle lock, and I can cruise at any given RPM. And it is only $10.

Here are some others that I had looked at before I bought the throttlemeister. They are cheaper, and I don't know how reliable. NEP and Vista Cruise.

Re: cruise control

I recently went to alaska from texas and I didnt have any lock at all but my dad used an o-ring inbetween the bar end and the grip. It wedges in there and you can still close the throttle without having to disengage a lock. We were averaging 700 a day and it didnt wear out or move any so it works real well.

Re: cruise control

i've got a 03 R6 and with a bit of grinding to it i fit a Vista Cruise onto my clipon, but i did have to put a shitload of lock tite on my bar end and only tighten it about 1/2 way to extend my clipon another 3/4 inch, but its a little sketchy cuz it can vibreate loose at hight revs and it does make the throttle stick a little......but in the end i would not recomend it to ne1 its really justa wast of $50 ....go get a rist assist...like a throttle rocker
