This Throttle Lock set is a direct replacement of the original left and right bar end weights, or an addition, depending on your particular model. They are machined of aluminum and weigh less than half that of the originals. The silver color adds a nice contrast and personal touch to your bike.
A throttle Lock is a simple but effective cruise control solution. On long rides, the throttle hand can become tired and cramped. With the Throttle Lock installed this becomes less of a problem. By turning the adjustment wheel, the Throttle Lock applies pressure onto the end of twist grip and the force of the throttle return spring is reduced or eliminated . The adjustment wheel has wide spaced teeth that allow easy turning of it even while wearing a glove, so it can be dialed in to exactly the required pressure. To disable, the adjustment wheel is simply turned in the other direction and in a matter of seconds the twist grip returns to normal function. The shape of the weight is like that of the left side so a symmetrical appearance is retained. Installation requires only basic tools and very little effort.

|After just a few weeks of regular riding, the aluminum was being worn down by my gloves. Both the black color and the blue, and a surprising amount of the metal below it, was being rubbed right off. Besides that, activating this in the opposite direction of the throttle movement makes this awkward. There's a similar product on the market with a name that rhymes with bottle heister and that should be the only throttle lock you spend any of your money on. Quite a disappointment considering the quality of all the other fantastic Wunderlich items my bike is outfitted with.|
|Easy install with no issues. It works well and sure relieved my throttle hand and arm on those long trips.|
|I purchased the trottle lock kit for my 2008 K1200S to give my wrist ones in a while a break on longer trips. The 10 minute install was easy, but had to make minor trottle position gap adjustments on the handle. I install a month later some Heli handlebar risers and had no issues transferring the trottle locks to the new handlebar set. I like this type of locking design over the trottle meister version on my old 1150GS. It avoids an accidental locking of the trottle. I wish Wunderlich would also offer the trottle locks in hard anodized flat black.|
|The device installed easily. I agree with several folks who mention its use is not intuitive. I have never resolved the jerkiness engaging and disengaging it. Maybe the folks who have no problem don\'t wear gloves.|
|Very dissatisfied. Not the same product shown in the video. Does not work.|
|I installed this last week and have used it on several ride. The install was clean. Directions straight forward. It looks cool and stock on the bike. Best of all it works exactly how it\'s supposed to. No problem turning it on with my right ring finger or pinkie finger. Great product. Can\'t comment on longevity but it was made very well.|
|Easy to install, works fine (like most and by the same principle). Like: blue anodized finish. Dislike or disappointment: there is too large a gap between the blue knurled wheel and the bar-end weight. Yes, you can slide the throttle grip-but that leave too large gap on the other side. This is just an issue of aesthetics and better machine work; better tolerances. AKS Engineering makes a better lock. The best I have seen is from Bob's BMW called Bob's Wrist Rest. Wow, really well made and looks and works great (for 1/2 the price). But, both of those are not available for the 650/800GS twins with factory hand guards. So, I am keeping this one--it does work fine.|
|Simple install and easier to use than the Throttlemeister on my Dakar. Very pleased, thanks|
|Product is great.. I have a 2011 k1300s with heated grips and Helibars. Needed to shim out the throttle side. 1.05mm worked for me.. Luckily I had the shims from the throttlemeister I'm now selling...|
|I read all the reviews before buying this one ane I'm not dissappointed. Except for the fact that it only comes in one color, howabout black? I left the left side stock (Black). Who gives a shit. I don't wear plaid golf pants.|
|Looks great. Excellent fit, finish and nice looking machined piece. Straight forward installation. Still getting used to it with practice. Seems to be counter intuitive to use than the Throttlemeister. Decreased the size of the stock bar ends. A little increase vibration in bars noticed.|
|The installation of the throttle lock was a bit of a journey for me. There was a defect on the unit from the factory, yet I still rated it with five (5) stars. How is that possible you ask? I was able to contact customer service via email. I was able to include a few images uploaded from my phone. The representative was knowledgeable, courteous, professional, prompt, and helpful! He diagnosed the issue as a manufactures defect, sent me a return label, and withing a few days the replacement part was in my hand and installed on my R1200GS Adventure. Now that the throttle lock is installed, i have used it for my daily commute of over 90 miles (one way!). I am impressed by the quality, the fit, the finish, and the effectiveness of the unit. Exceptional work on the part of Wunderlisch to do everything to make my expereince "right". I tip my hat to the customer service team for setting the standard for customer service!|
|I ordered this set for a 2011 K1300R and it doesn't fit the bar end. I returned it and received a refund for the purchase price (but I'm out of pocket for shipping costs in both directions). I'd usually not take issue with any of this as the customer service was good and it is a case of buyer beware - however it is a bit of a burn since the year, make and model of the machine was provided during the order process and I would expect that there would be some form of validation that the part ordered would actually work with the bike specified *prior* to shipping.|
|Outstanding quality. Easy installation. Works great. Highly recommended.|
|I looked at a lot of different options for some long distance relief on my 1200 GSA and just couldn't find the right thing for me. I bought a Wunderlich throttle lock and am extremely pleased. Not only are they very well made, but installation was a breeze. I took a 200 mile ride the other day and it worked perfectly!|
|Easy to install. Locking forward is kind of weird.|
|I love it, it was easy to install. Very high quality. My fingers and wrists thank you. I use my bike for long commutes (45-55 min. one way) which was hard on my wrists. It has made the ride much more enjoyable and I would highly recommend it to everyone.|
|High Quality, works as designed. Took hours for me to discard the simple insert that is shipped with the set. I checked the instructions 25 times, nothing said discard or install, micro manager me says if it comes with it-- make sure to do it right, use every piece correctly. Wrong---Just pitch it, it was packed to protect the machined surface, between the unit and the grip.|
|Was so easy to fit. Looks good on the bike, and works as advertised. I'm happy with it. Practise makes perfect. I'm getting better at using with every ride.|
|The throttle lock is just what I wanted ... it's well made, works perfectly and even looks nice on my new ride. The installation was as advertized (easy,easy,easy).|
