Hey All,

Check out what I installed. Very simple, actually idiot proof. Cost $20 and free shipping and a 1 year warranty. I also have the Grip Puppies, so I needed to peel it back 1/2"

The SilverWing take the small 7/8"

Thanks!
Just the information I wanted - I saw these on another forum and was wondering about which size to get as I, too, have Grip Puppies.

Thanks for the photos. Looks interesting. My only question is how does this release if you have a fast or emergency stop? Their web site doesn't answer that either.

I think the grip of the device is sufficiently 'weak' to allow the rider to just close the throttle in an emergency or even in ordinary riding.

It would seem that the clamp lock lever can be positioned so that the closing of the brake lever opens the clamp.

I have a "Vista Cruse" control. I also have Grip Puppies. There is plenty of room for both items on the handlebar. The Vista Cruse has a "thumb" release/activate. I like it in that you can activate or release it without touching the brake lever. Once you start using such a device, it becomes "second nature" as to when and how to start/stop it....just like the feel of thr brake levers or throttle in slowing down, stopping or accelerating.

GWPSI,

The Go Cruise has just enough grip to hold the throttle in place. You can easily disengage it by rolling the throttle forward. I will hope to check it out tomorrow and report back after a test ride.

billc,

Howdy fellow Atlantan. Can you post some pics of the Vista Cruise. I am curious on how to install it and what it looks like.

Thanks

Erick, good to hear from you. Vista-Cruise picture was posted today on this site by BuickGuy. Mine looks similar to that.
Its a very easy (10 min.) install and adjustment and works great for me.
I am in Chamblee so if you want to see my bike, PM me and we could meet somewhere nearby. billc.

Hi All,

Wanted to give you an update on the throttle lock.

I used it a few times, works great, no issue so far.

Hey Mike,

You are correct. I rolled back my grip puppy, slipped the silcone type ring, then installed the throttle control.

I did not cut mine, just in case I wanted to remove my throttle control.

Got mine last week. A very simple item that works very well. The clamp put enough pressure to hold the throttle in place. You can make minor adjustment with your index finger or roll back on the throttle to achieve the speed you need.

Mine is hidden away in the lid pocket of my Givi E55, it does the job but I can't remember the last time I used it or needed it. It might have been useful if I'd installed it for the long autobahn stretches when I was in Germany in early June, but having it stashed away in the top box I forgot it was there.

Binning the highly recommended Grip Puppies was my best ever throttle improvement, being stupid enough to buy and fit them was the worst. Neutral

Hi Guys and Gals. I just installed a new Vista Cruise throttle lock on my Swing and it works great. I had to do a little tweeking with a file to make it fit between the cables but other than that it was an easy install. I started using this throttle lock in 1981 on my Goldwing and have used one on all the bikes I've had since than. It works great and every once in awhile you need to remember to take it off and clean it and reinstall it and adjust it to your liking which takes very little time. Its a very nice addition to the Swing. Now I'm starting to look for a tunnel bag to add to the swing. I would like one with a map pouch on the top any one have any ideas. I almost forgot I got my vista cruise throttle lock from Harber's cycle on e-bay for $25.95.

I just installed a Breakaway Cruise Control. A lot more expensive, but outstanding quality and it functions flawlessly. All in all extremely happy with the Breakaway.

Don't think we have a road long enough or straight enough in the Uk to justify cruise control, any type of throttle control apart from the right wrist!

Just about to 'Google' Grip Puppies' haven't a clue about them. Interest piqued.

Interest un-piqued!

See what they are now. My gloves will suffice. Don't see a need for myself.

I bought a Go Cruise Throttle Control but having tried it out on the motorways here found it not to my liking.
Although the roads are straight for long distances the volume of traffic means constant adjustments to speed are necessary and resetting the gadget constantly proved too much of a distraction.
Fortunately, it's a very cheap bit of kit and I can see that it would be idea for use on empty roads such as one sees in programmes about the American 'wilderness'.

As for the Grip Puppies, I like them very much; they 'cured' the irritating vibration through the bars I experienced and the increased diameter of the grips suits my boney hands.

Horses for courses. Smile

I agree with the comments on using cruise controls on UK and European roads, and I'd say a Throttle Rocker is of more use.

The pipe lagging a.k.a. Grip Puppies may insulate your hands from vibration but they also do a pretty effective job of keeping the warmth from those expensive heated grips getting through to your hands.

But as you say horses for courses.

I have cruise control on both my car and truck but have never used it
on either .
I know it's nice on long trips, but I just can't bring my self to use it.

Those of you want it on your Wings, more power to you but it's
not my cup of tea.

I guess I'm just a control freak with a heavy hand on the throttle.

My main reason for using my throttle friction lock is to avoid repetitive stress injuries (RSI). Going on long-distance rides maintaining a relatively constant speed can be hard on the wrist and hands. Being able to let go of the throttle helps me relax a lot more and enjoy the ride.

Come on, repetitive stress injuries are you serious? We've all used our right hands for another friction based activity since puberty yet I bet no one's got RSI. Wink

It's like saying you need an Airhawk seat cushion to to avoid bed sores on long distance rides.

Maybe for you but for me, yes, I'm very serious. I do get pain in my wrist if I go long-distances without giving it a break. The throttle friction lock gives me a safe and easy wait to reduce the pain and keep me enjoying my rides.

There's an old post of mine up there from August 2012 about my Go Cruise Throttle Control, saying it was stored inside the lid pocket of my Givi E55 top box, and I'd yet to use it

Fast forward eight years to October 2020 and it's still there in the lid and still unused. I've never felt it necessary to fit it and use it, whether it's on long all day rides, cruising on motorways/autobahns, long straight roads, or anywhere else. Simply because I'm instinctively making speed adjustments all the time,

Having been to Arizona and travelled on arrow straight to the horizon and on again roads with very little traffic, the Go Cruise might be of use there.

I've used a KOAKO throttle holder. Put on on two my Goldwings of the past and on all of the scooters I've had, BMW C650GT, Burgman 650 and my last two SWs. These aren't inexpensive but are the best I've ever tried.

The are very easy to install and pretty inconspicuous when in place. You can vary the hold from very little to a full lock which I've used a couple times making adjustments. I keep the hold very light so that I can just slide my hand back a bit to turn the thing off. The cog like teeth on the thing make it very easy to adjust with gloves on, just slide you hand over it, no need to take your hand off the grip to do it. You can also use it to lock the throttle closed to prevent people from playing with the throttle while parked.

I tried grip puppies in the hopes they'd help with the arthritis in my hands but they made the grip too thick for comfortable riding. Too bad because they looked like they would help. So back to the occasional pain pill.

Grip Puppies are really two lengths of foam pipe insulation, and I'm pleased you found them as useless as I did. They are too think for comfortable riding and fitted over heated grips prevent heat getting to your hands.

Try the similarly named Grip Buddies, they're US made, much thinner, easier to fit, and are anti-vibration.

I'm already mentioned that I've never used my Go Cruise, another thing I've had for a couple of years and never used until last week was the HSTC traction control on my Forza.

Considering I've ridden in torrential rain, thunderstorms, and just plain old British rain plenty of times since I bought the Forza. As it's sure footed and easy to ride even on the wettest of roads, I've just forgotten it was there. .

Neck snapping with throttle changes is fun at times, and the Swing offers a lot of fun riding in that mode. So it's easy to see why a throttle lock would be useless if you like the constant excitement and safe control of the throttle. And running the twisties is anathema to a throttle lock.

I have used Vista Cruise on another bike and Go Cruise on my latest bikes. Will never be without one.

Huge difference in usability of a throttle lock between a shift bike and a twist-and-go. Fewer throttle lock adjustments on the Swing because CVT maintains better continuous speed on mild hills. The CVT adjusts somewhat to a lower "gear" range as the mild hill approaches. Not perfect, but much better than on a shift gear bike where you need to adjust the throttle lock for almost every gear change, mostly using the throttle lock in the top speed. Regardless, on any bike, as mentioned in posts above, on longer rides, throttle lock allows the rider to rest wrist and enjoy the ride. Highway riding is especially comfortable. And because you are not constantly making throttle adjustments, you save a little gas and stress on belt and tires.

Those of you who live in the flat midwest/west in USA can appreciate the comfort of a throttle lock on your long, flat, straight highway rides.

Musky Dog’s post got moved. Maybe he’ll post his introduction in the Introductions forum rather than hijack someone’s topic.
