The Kaoko Cruise Control is a simple and clever friction type throttle lock that lets you maintain cruising speed without fatiguing your hand.
The Kaoko consists of a friction nut that’s integrated into a replacement bar end weight. Each unit is made to go with a specific make/model to ensure matching controls, and the Kaoko installs easily with one large mounting bolt.
To use the Kaoko while riding, simply move your grip further out towards the end of the bar until you’re covering the castellated nut. Twist the nut at the same time as the throttle and when you release your hand, friction from the Kaoko will keep the throttle in place. To turn off cruise, rotate the throttle and nut forward. The Kaoko will release friction and your throttle’s return action will function normally.
