Kaoko™ Cruise Control Kits are under continual development to suit selected large capactiy motorcycles. The kit consists of a simple, ingenious and robustly designed friction nut that is integral with a special Kaoko™ handle bar end weight. The Kaoko™ bar end weight is closely matched in appearance and weight to the Original Equipment Manufacturer's (OEM) end weight.
The friction nut has a left-hand thread. It must be adjusted so that it makes light contact with the rubber throttle sleeve.
To Engage: Whilst rolling on the throttle, the friction nut can be gripped between the small finger and palm of hand. This action tightens the nut and provides sufficient friction to set throttle to the desired opening. (The friction is such that the rider may still open and close the throttle. It simply has a slight rotational resistance to it.)
To Disengage: Whilst rolling off the throttle, grip friction nut between small finger and palm of hand. The throttle should open and snap closed freely when correctly disengaged.
Note: The Grub Screw is set to provide the necessary resistance on thread of friction nut. This may be adjusted periodically to take up wear.
NOTE: When turning on your heated grips there may be a need to back off the friction setting slightly due to the expansion caused by the heat applied to the throttle grip. Using heated grips with a Kaoko Cruise Control is perfectly safe.
- Greatly reduces rider fatigue and strain on hand and wrist
- Whilst cruising, rider is able to remove hand from throttle grip, throttle opening will remain as set
- Very simple to operate, even with heavy winter gloves
- High quality, compact and durable design, super smooth action
- Takes less than 5 minutes to fit
- Very little maintenance is required
- Less wear and tear on throttle cables and linkages
- Can result in reduced fuel consumption
Note: When cruise control is activated, the ride must still have at least one hand on the handlebars to ensure control of the motorcycle.
Kaoko™ Cruise Control Kit only replaces the OEM throttle end bar weight. Remove the right hand bar weight and replace it with Kaoko™ bar weight. Ensure the central retaining screw is firmly tightened.
Remove kit annually. Unscrew friction nut and brush clean threads with mild soap. Apply petroleum jelly to threads and assemble. Adjust Grub Screw to desired operating resistance. (O-Ring cushion: 19.6 mm I.D. x 2.4 mm section - if replacement is required)
Kaoko™ Safety Warning: The Kaoko™ Cruise Control is an aftermarket accessory. Any misunderstood, abused or incorrectly installed motorcycle accessory is a safety hazard that could cause injury or death. It’s the rider’s responsibility to understand the operation and purpose for which the Kaoko™ Cruise Control is designed, namely, for cruising, only when safe to do so. At all other times the control should be disengaged. The Kaoko™ Cruise Controls are to be used only by experienced and responsible riders.
Indemnity: It is advised that the use of the cruise control is at the sole risk of the rider and by his/her decision to use it he/she does indemnify the manufacturers or organizers, their agents, employees and officers against any claim or action by themselves, their dependants or any other third party arising out of any loss, damage, injury or death suffered.
