This is a simple but effective cruise control solution. On long riding stints the throttle hand can become tired and cramped, with the Throttle Lock installed, this becomes less of a problem. The Throttle Lock is fitted instead of the right hand side bar end weight, and by simply turning the adjustment wheel, the Throttle Lock applies pressure onto end of the twist grip. The adjustment wheel has wide spaced teeth that allow easy turning of it even while wearing a glove, so it can be dialed for exactly the required pressure. To disable, the adjustment wheel is simply turned the other direction and in a matter of seconds the twist grip returns to normal function.
For safety reasons, we have designed this part so that tension is placed on the twist grip by turning the adjustment wheel clockwise, opposite acceleration. This reduces the chance of the throttle lock inadvertently engaging.
The black versions are supplied as a single part to replace the right side bar end weight. The silver and polished versions are supplied as a two piece set to replace both bar end weights.
If your bike is an R1150 GS or Adventure and you have the factory BMW hand guards that attach to the end of the handlebar, you will also need to order a spacer. The spacer is available under the Related Products tab. When ordering one of the black versions (one piece) order one spacer. When ordering one of the silver versions, (two piece) order two spacers.
In some cases, it may be necessary to adjust the position of the twist grip on the handlebar, so that proper spacing can be achieved. For instructions on how this adjustment is done on all applicable models with a hydraulic clutch, see the Additional Information tab.

|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.|
|This product is worthless. In order to set the cruise control you have to reach accross with your left arm while holding the throttle in position with your right hand. Not very safe in my book. If I hadn't opened this package (which violates the return policy) I would sent it back. A complete waste of $110. On top of that, the handle bar weights are about half of what comes stock. Have no idea if this is good or not; but don't waste your money on this item.|
|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.|
|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).|
