Had the Kaoko Throttle Lock installed late in the riding season, but I have had the opportunity to try it on shorter runs this fall. It works exactly as advertised. It takes a little getting use to to engage, but it is simple and works well, allowing you to ride along at a steady speed while moving and stretching your right hand. The oddest feeling was not having a hand on the right grip (that's where one of the brakes is, right?), but quick changes can be made easily (including disengaging) as you ride.

It is not a true cruise control in that your speed is not maintained going up or down hills, but you can make adjustments even with the lock engaged when the road grade changes. It is also very unobtrusive and looks great on my V-strom 650, and there were no issues with the heated grips or the hand guards. Looking forward to putting it to use on some long rides next season!

Installed on 2015 DL650A. Easy to use. Works very well. Have not tried in the rain, so don't know if water will act as lube and reduce friction. Great to be able to remove throttle hand now and then. (Posted on 15-06-08)

Very well made. Instructions were fair to good. I installed this device on my 2014 Suzuki Vstrom 1000. Works better than any other throttle lock I have tried. Expensive, but solid as a rock. (Posted on 14-08-01)

I would have liked a little more instruction on in american standard units, But the speed lock works great, I drive 50 miles one way and it gives my right hand a needed break and I would recommend the product to anyone that needs to get some circulation back to their hand, and making adjustments to the speed is easy just stiff but that's to be expected since its tension related, I enjoy the freedom.
