    Anyone have a lead on a cruise control that might work?

    Just got done adding a CCS100 audiovox to my wifes Vstar 1100. Works pretty good but now adding a little more vacuum storage. Sure it will work on yours as well. All for around $100

    KDok, could you tell me where you got the Throttlemeister for your Raider. The dealership tells me nothing is available.

    Thanks, Muffj

    Here's a site I found that carries it. rlmotorcycles.com

    Isn’t the Throttlemeister just a throttle lock device? Where as the Audiovox CCS100 is a true cruise control device.

    I see Amazon sells the Audiovox for $85.00. I’m thinking about putting one on my 1100. The switch concerns me though, it doesn’t look like its weather proof since it’s designed for inside of autos.

    I presently have a throttle lock made by Vista Cruise that I bought from JC Whitney for $35.00.

    I found this on another forum that I belong to also:
    meancycles.com
    I went to the company's web site and they have it listed for the Raider.

    I purchased my "throttle lock" today from "throttlemeister.com" and should receive it in a couple of days. I called them and talked to "Fred". He was very experienced in this device and says they work great. You get a matching handelbar end for the left side with the same weight as the right hand side.
    I ordered the "Heavy" Polished which is longer than the "Standard" by about a 1/2 inch. I'll keep everyone posted on how this product works once installed.

    I'm using a Crampbuster and it works great.

    Breakaway makes one that works great. Locks throttle, and releases manually with a lever or when You hit the front brake. A little expensive I thought at $200.00 but it works great and is easy to install on the grip. Same one as user on the roadliner and strat.

    Well here it is. I received my throttlemeisters today and they were a breeze to put on. Took me about a 1/2 hour. I am very very pleased with the workmanship. These babies are nothing short of SWEET!!!!! Heavy duty stuff, weighing more than the stock ends. The throttle side works very smooth and holds the throttle with ease. What is really nice is that you just put minimal force on the Throttlemeister and you can back off the throttle if you need to and it doesn't disengage.
    One more thing, they look factory on my bike because they shine like the rest of my chrome and they even have a recessed area that is red which matches my bike. I have the candy red with flames. I would recommend these to anyone looking for a throttlelock without the throttlelock look. You can find them at www.throttlemeister.com

    I spent about $100 total & put the audio vox on my wifes Vstar 1100. You set it & forget about it. It holds a constant speed. Works awesome.

    Hey all. havent really comented on any of these yet but....... i am the parts manager at lethbridge yamaha, and the breakaway cruzzzzzzzzz control is by far the nicest cruise and really the only one worth the time. its the fastest sellingcruise we have by three times. pricey at a little over 200.00 but its the raider, spend the extra 50 bucks.

    Meh...doesn't look any "nicer" than the Throttlemesiter (those are reallllly well made), looks like it might have more issues than the Throttlemeister as well.

    ...one man's opinion

    Would you mind starting a new thread with a writeup on your install, I'm interested in doing this...

    Me too I just received mine in the mail today but stuck at the fire department until the morning. How do the old ends come off, do they twist off or what?

    I am with you FinkerTikhd. These Throttlemeisters are top notch in quality and do a great job at holding the throttle. My only issue at this time is getting used to turning the end while keeping a constant speed with my index finger and thumb. Kind of tricky but will get the hang of it. I watched a video and went through the directions on the "Breakaway" throttlelock online and it seems to me that there is a lot of fine tuning and moving parts that could be an issue down the road compared to the Throttlemeister.

    Just my opinion...

    There are chrome caps on the end of the stock ends. Just pop them off with a small screwdriver and you'll see an allen head bolt. That's it.
