Omnii Cruise
« on: July 09, 2017, 03:29:06 PM »
Hey everyone, I am looking to add an Omni Cruise to the throttle. It will involve removing the bar end weight and getting past the hand gaurd on the throttle side to get the rubber ring on. I am wondering if I am going to run into any surprises or should it be straight forward. Any info would be helpful. Thanks.

Hi Joe,

I fitted the Jonny rocker type which i think is similar  - it took about a minute to install - simple . i used this type on my previous bike and now on the MTS (before I got tipped off it last week that is ) and it works fine

Thanks for the reply Billy, I hope you didn't get beat up too bad. I am just going out to the garage to give her a go. I will post to let you know how it went.

The install went well with no hand guard clearance  issues. Just be careful not to lose the two brass pieces  at the end of the bolt for the bar end weight in the handle bar

Nice one Joe. You got any photos to share of the finished install?
Sometimes you need a really crooked road to get your head straight

I tried to post a few photos of the install process but apparently my photos are over the limit and I am a techno dinosaur. Thanks for the interest.

Joe,
Are you happy with the Omni Cruise? Any feedback you can share I am considering adding one to my 950...

Yea I am generally happy with it, One note on the Omni cruise is that you really have to tighten the sh#t out of it if you want it to stay put. This means you really need to put some pressure to roll off the throttle. This can be tricky if your trying to apply your brakes at the same time in an emergency situation. I only use it when the road traffic is very light for actual cruise control but it is great for giving your wrist a break on longer hauls. The quality of the build is also top notch. Hope this helps .
