Over the years I have purchased probably 6-8 of these as I have had one on every bike I have owned the last few years. Easy to install and works good to give your wrist a break for a minute or two, especially on flat roads or slightly downhill, as it needs periodic adjustment for more throttle when climbing a grade. Works good on dirt bikes as well. Easy to remove if you sell your bike, but once buyers see it, they want it left on.
Been using it on a DR200SE daily. Installation is easy, only takes a few seconds. If the road is rough/bumpy it will slip, which can be expected since it works off of friction on the grip. Different grips (thicker or thinner) may make a difference in the amount of friction holding the throttle. Makes it easy for me to rest my hand going to and from work (30 miles each way).
Does the job and eases long rides....although be careful....because if you expect to let off the throttle when its engaged it could surprise you....you have to consciously be ready to rotate your hand forward to panic stop.
This thing is a hand saver for sure! Super easy to install, just set your throttle where you want it and push the Go Cruise down to set it there. Couldn’t be easier. Simply turn your throttle off to disengage the cruise control. Couldn’t be happier.
Works pretty well, just slips a bit but does help with hand fatigue. I need to play with it so it doesn't slip back to closed throttle. You set it about 5 mph faster than you want to go. It takes a good min to slowly come back down. Just enough time to rest your arm and hand.
On my bike (Suzuki Bandit 1250) it did allow me to release my grip on the throttle for a short period of time but after a few seconds the throttle started backing off, probably due to vibration in the bars. Not a big deal because I did have enough time to flex my hand and relieve some stress before the speed dropped off too much. My biggest complaint is the amount of space it takes up on the grip. I have fairly large hands so, even with my thumb pressed tight up against the Go Cruise, my hand extended past the grip onto the bar end plug. It would be fine for a rider with smaller hands.
they take a quick minute to install, a couple of mins to get use to it and 1500 mile later, i wont ride without it. the 7/8 version fits my indian scout and both of the ducati's. i can feel my hand again! and there is nothing more funny than to wave at a car you know with your right hand and they look at you like "why arent you slowing down??"
On my KLR 650, it will hold your throttle with about a 5mph loss every 10 seconds due to vibration. And very difficult to remove whole on the highway. Makes it hard to hold throttle if on grip and not using it. With my 685 kit, it holds throttle much longer, due to less vibration.
Takes the edge off when needed. It works pretty good at about 90% of the time at times it does slip very little but overall it will maintain your speed with in a couple of miles. Super safe to release just push throttle forward and your in control.
Have seen plenty of Cruise Controls out there, but this one takes the cake. It doesn't require any deep involved installation and it works. I had this while on a 500 mile ride and it made life so much nicer. I was able to relax both hands instead of just the clutch hand. No throttle cramp, nothing uncomfortable. It isn't something that takes a lot of room on the grip either. I would recommend it to anyone that is looking for an inexpensive, durable throttle control that works! It will make your ride so much better.
