    Throttle Lock for f 650

    I was out on my sons F 650 yesterday for a lengthy ride and was annoyed with the throttle not having a lock/cruise device. Where do I find such a device. I was looking on the web yesterday and all I could find was Throttlemeister's for the later model F 650's, nothing was listed for 1999.

    Use the Search tool

    Hi

    If you use the Search tool and enter "throttle lock" all will be revealed.

    You have many options from an O ring to a fancy electronic whizbang.

    I use the simple wriist rest. Inexpensive, easy to install and can be adjusted on the move.

    Take a look over at the Chain Gang website in thier FAQs. I found just getting a "Throttle Rocker" helps a lot!

    Crampbusters are great

    I checked my bike and I have the crampbusters.

    They work very well.

    Hmmm, I had the velcro model and it worked quite well (lost it somewhere), BUT if the great and powerful Flash says it sucks it must so....

    throttle miester

    I have a Throttle Miester on my '99 and it works fine. Takes a little practice, but is nice to have on long stretches. I'd recommend you email them for the right model.

    AGREED

    The new ones just slide around- out of position. Then they just make good conversation...

    Flash forgot to tell me that the ThrottleRocker II was a POS so I bought one last spring.

    I'd have to rate it as a semi-POS. It works but it tends to move after a while. On a 1K trip, I had to readjust it once. And I noticed recently that it needs another slight adjustment.

    Next time, I'll get the original item.

    I wonder if mine worked so well because I have foam grips? I did notice I had to really tighten the velcro down, but once I did it was fine.

    Had the velcro version and it sucked. Got a throttlemeister and never looked back. As bar end weights they look cool too.

    I prefer the old style Throttle Rocker to the new one. The velcro version takes more work to get it adjusted right. I need two hands and all of my weight to pull the material super tight before I velcro it down. If I have gloves on or am sitting on the bike, it just doesn't seem to stay in the right position for very long. Even then 2 hours is about the max and for LD rides that's not good enough. For shorter trips it's fine. I guess I need to switch over to the cramp buster.
