    Throttle Lock, Black Aluminum

    This 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. The Throttle Lock simply replaces the right hand side bar-end weight, and 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. 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.

    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 accidentally 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.

    Throttle Lock did exactly as promised
    (Barryton, Michigan) | September 28th, 2015
    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.
    Great product

    Just added one t m 2012 GSA prior to 4000 mile ride to MOA INTL and back. Loved it and saved my hand during long days ride. One da on way back logged 730 miles and it saved the day!!
    Surprisingly bad
    (Albany, CA) | April 4th, 2013
    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.

    excellent throttle lock.
    (Denver, CO) | August 21st, 2012
    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.
    Wunderlich Made it Right!
    (Hyattsville, MD) | April 24th, 2012
    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!

    Outstanding quality. Easy installation. Works great. Highly recommended.
    Throttle lock
    (Lafayette, LA) | April 11th, 2012
    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!
    Love it!
    (Los Gatos, CA) | November 9th, 2011
    Prior to buying, I read the other reviews on ADV and some people complained about it being hard to use or counter-intuitive in terms of the direction that it engages. I've also had the Throttlemeister and Kaoko. This one is actually the best of the three. It's totally easy to use. It's simple to engage with your pinky finger while maintaining steady throttle position with the rest of your hand. The machine work and action kick ass and it's way more streamlined than the Kaoko. Nice piece.
    Works well, easy to install
    (Los Alamos, New Mexico) | May 2nd, 2011
    Takes a little while to get used to it (remember which way to turn it) but after a while it's second nature. you can set it so it's just a high friction instead of a lock. It's well made, easy to install.
    Easy to insall, difficult to use
    (Chandler, AZ) | April 17th, 2011
    The product is great quality, easy to install, and looks like the perfect solution. For me the problem is I find it difficult to set while I'm out riding. I can't hold the speed and tighten the device at the same time while in motion. Ultimately I took it off of my bike.
