    Hi All,

    Sorry if this has been covered before but I couldn't find anything of recent times.

    Im interested to know if anyone has used a throttle lock / manual cruise control who can recommend a particular brand. Its for my Low Rider 2016 model (very unfortunate CC only came on the S). Just dont want to be cruising along at 110km/h and have it stuck on.

    Thanks in advance, of whatever comes up.

    i have a "cruise-mate " throttle lock,but have yet to fit it,may be in a few weeks.hopefully it works as good as the speils say it will be.one of the sell points is that the rider directly controls the amount of " lock " tension applied on the throttle drum, from little to full lock on,will be interesting to see how it works.once on it will get a workout in june,going to brisbane.cheers

    2016 model don't you have the throttle friction screw already fitted leachy ? It is a bit agricultural but does work, I set mine so it still closes off but slowly and it does take a lot of the effort off that right hand. You can get that paddle thing that goes on the throttle too so you use ur palm to hold the throttle open.

    I used a Cramp Buster original for several years on my Dyna.  It isn't really a throttle lock, it's more of a wrist rest but it is dead easy to fit and it makes cruising those long straight sections a lot easier on the right hand.  They're cheap too but be careful of the knock offs on eBay, they're made of a harder cheaper plastic that doesn't last.  Pay the few $ extra for a genuine one.

    It would have been so much easier if it was a factory option that's on the Low Rider S

    Thanks for the input.

    FBW makes it easy aye, you know that's doable, be horrendously expensive with OEM bits but still doable.

    Plus 1 on the cruise mate. Fitted it myself and works a treat!You will need a jig which isn't available at the moment I borrowed one one from DJP on the forum here. If you ask him I can post it to you. I've finished with it now. Look on YouTube for the fitting. Very easy. I have the drill and tap as well. Cheers

    Did mine free hand without the jig. Just took it easy. I must be a clever bugger ??

    Go for the BrakeAway Cruise Control
    I put one on my Sporty and it’s very well made. Just touch the front brake and it releases. Also via small lever with your thimb. 
    Perfect fit and well engineered. 
    IMHO.

    Leachy, that bike is a FBW throttle bike and all the system is there for factory cruise, you just need a module and a switch block. Modules frequently come up on eBay under $200 shipped and knock-off switch blocks are under $100. The factory cruise shuts off with front brake, rear brake, throttle full-close, clutch actuation and front/rear speed sensor imbalance. It's so safe and easy to use. For a few hunge why fuck with all that add-on crap?
    I use the cruise everywhere, roadworks, in town, etc. best thing on the bike!

    Hey Nutty,

    I look into that. Would you happen to know if its a particular module or they are all the same.

    Thanks for the advice.
