Is there any cruse control out there that you either don't have to cut the plastic next to the trottle, or move the break oil cilynder?? I really would like to put one on but I don't want to mess up my handlebars much. Something like a cruse that is slim so it can fit into the small space. Thanks

Have you checked into the Vista Cruise? It is only about $20 and you only need to cut maybe 1/8" inch of the "rubber part" of the throttle, not the plastic. It only takes 2 mins to remove about 1/8" of the rubber part of the throttle and you will never know you cut anything.

http://www.casporttouring.com/thestore/Vista-Cruise.html (for 7/8" handlebars)

The only other thing that may not require any cutting is the "Brake A Way". You may want to ask BigBird how he installed his. Here is a link:

I believe they are about $200 though.

I use a .35 rubber O ring and rolled it up over the hand bar grip and it resides between the grip and the brake hand assembly. This negates the auto spring loaded throttle. I roll the throttle open and I roll it closed. I can take my hand off of the throttle and it stays right where I left it.

No more numb wrists. I know... a wrist buster but you still have to keep your hand on the throttle.

If you pick a thick enough rubber O ring, it won't pinch down in between the hand grip, which allows for a quick removal if you find that necessary. I have had mine set up like that since I bought it.

I went with the Go Cruise at $20. Very simple but works very well. Youtube has a video on installation and operation. I was surprised how well it works. All cruise devices come with safety clause and you must be aware of the dangers. Don

Try NEP still in Aerostich catalog. Cut grip off, have spare on hand. Idea to to make work smoothly. I drilled NEP, use either safety wire or thin nylon tie to steady tab in between the 2 throttle wires.

Replace grip, making sure space is left so there is not constant friction with rotating grip touching NEP. Adjust friction you want/need with NEP. $20 or so total cost. Seem to work forever, great for wiping nose, break on wrist.

+ 1 on the NEP. Thumb flicking behavior to disengage becomes second nature almost immediately.
