    I have the "heavy" and they look nicer in my opinion. http://throttlemeister.com/

    I have the Kaoko (the referenced South African original) on my GS. I've used the Wrist Rest on a K11LT, the Throttlemeister on an R1150RT, and now the Kaoko unit on my GS. I prefer this of the three I've tried. It is easier to control and there is a set screw that lets me set the drag.

    I've used a $10 Throttlerocker for the last dozen or so year on my Airhead and it works fine for me.

    I have this Kaako unit on my R1200S for years. It works fairly well.

    I now have one of these; it works much better.

    I have the Kaoko and it works OK....as long as the roads are fairly flat.

    both my 88 K100 and the 93 R100RS have a knurled thumb screw in the bottom of the throttle body. i keep 'em tightened down pretty hard and they work reasonably well, unless i'm going over.... certain speeds.

    it helps a great deal to be able to just let go of the throttle every now and again on a long day.

    Can you tell more about these. Do they hold as well as a TM or Kaako? Does the release spring back quickly? If this works and at this price, it's a killer deal

    Throttlemeister

    I bought and installed the throttlemeister 4 weeks ago and so far it is working fine. I will be going on a 10 or 11,000 mile trip next starting next week, so that will be the real test.

    Works great, if installed and stays on. I have read about a few that split when removed to go another bike. So put on and leave on, and it'll work great.

    If you have a slipping problem, put a wide rubberband beneath it.

    I have a Bobs Wrist Rest and am happy with it. Same principle as the other bar-end types.

    Thanks to AZ-J

    I just ordered one of these. http://www.2wheelride.com/throttle_pro.html.
    It sounds almost too good to be true. $19.95 and free shipping with a one year warrantee. If it works as advertised, look for my TM in the flee market.
