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. For safety reasons, our throttle lock is designed such that tension is applied by turning the adjustment wheel in the opposite direction of throttle action. In this way, tension can only be intentionally applied.
We offer the Throttle Lock in your choice of black or silver. Both versions have a blue adjustment wheel. On both versions, the entire assembly is made of anodized aluminum and a matching left side weight is included. Being made of aluminum, these bar end weights are lighter than the original steel parts. Installation requires a T55 Torx wrench or socket and takes only seconds to carry out.
Installation Hint 1: Our throttle lock and matching left weight are slightly shorter than the original bar end weight on some models. This in itself is not a problem however, the bar end weight bolt is installed with thread locking fluid at the factory and in some cases, there's an excess amount of hardened thread lock on the inside of the handlebar. Because in some cases the bolt needs to be screwed in further than it originally was, you may feel that the bolt is bottoming out. In this case, we suggest that you use a tap to break up the thread lock and clean the threads. You'll then be able to fully screw the bolt in and tighten it. It is a good idea to apply fresh thread locking fluid on the bolts to ensure that the bar end weight bolts do not accidently loosen.
Installation Hint 2: For optimal operation, it may be necessary to adjust the position of the throttle sleeve in order to achieve the proper end gap. Watch the video for information about this procedure.
Tip: We also offer blue anodized bolts to replace the original T55 bolts. The blue anodized finish adds yet another stylish accent and compliments the adjustment wheel of the Throttle Lock. You will find these bolts under the Related Products tab.

|Just had my 1200 for a month and needed a good throttle lock to releive my right hand. It installed in about 15 minutes and has worked as expected and finish is first rate. I do have a little trouble activating with my finger to the extent it holds but it still allows me to then adjust a little tighter with a couple fingers. I like that I can make little speed adjustments for a hill or a downhill and relax.|
|The operation is backwards and jacking with it trying to set it while riding is dangerous. Threw it away. Bought a Kaoko. This is the only Wunderlich product I have not given 5 stars.|

|Good product a must for long rides..looks great on my bike|
|Installation was only about 5 minutes. Precise easy fit. I mostly use the throttle lock to reduce the tension on the throttle. It works great and since the threads are close together it's easy to find the sweet spot you need.|
