Has anybody tried this Throtlemeister. I have tried various cruise controls but all seem to loose power or fiddly. 

I think the nearest place to order from is somewhere in Spain, approx just over £100 I think!

I do a lot of miles and think this would be handy. Don`t know how easy it is to fit & fine tune.

I've never seen those before? I'd be interested to know what they're like if you get one though?

Throttlemeister seems very expensive, I would not think it would be worth that amount. Seems easy to use how he does it but I wonder how much of a sod that would be to use under riding conditions, not so easy I wouldn't have thought.

I'm under the impression they both work of friction? It'd be cheaper to wrap a load of insulation tape around the bar before putting the throttle tube on to get the same result perhaps?

Is it me?? but I do not think they are safe, if you come of your bike the back wheel will still be spinning at 50 and revs at 4000, no thank you.

how about a crampbuster if your hand is aching on longer rides? if you were to let go of the grip it backs off as normal, just means you dont have to strain as much keeping hold of the grip.

they look alright to me I've thought about getting one for a long time would be pretty cool going along on cruise control sitting on the pilly seat and pegs with no rider hahaha  but all that aside would be good on a long run being able to let go with your right hand and let it rest a bit

I used an M&P crampbuster type control when riding my old ST1300 Pan. I have weakened grip in both hands & this rested under my wrist so I could flex my hand whilst still keeping up the speed I was at. It was a simple thing & only cost about £5- so cheap n cheerful but worked just the same!

I had a similar one and thought it was great most of the time but I broke it moving it out of the way as it got in the way sometimes ie when I wanted to make a bit of progress Rolling Eyes
