    Throttle lock & spacers

    Just to say that having completed a recent tour of Scotland I found the results of the throttle spacers produced by our good Forum member, Tozes, to be excellent . I also fitted the Kaoko throttle lock (recent Forum topic a few weeks ago) and found this to be a great help on the long motorway journey . Basically it's an expensive (90 i think) throttle friction nut but does a better job than the much cheaper plastic lever that is positioned against the front brake - and it looks far better too. There was no problem fitting it with bar end hand guards . The only noticeable difference is that it does add a small amount of extra width to the bar on that side

    I had a quick look on the web but cannot see if you can adjust on the move, is it just set at one speed and you cannot adjust? The idea of bar end protection built in looks good

    Yes you adjust on the move (using your pinkie on the Kaoko "wheel" ) to apply as much friction as you require - and you can just roll off the throttle as normal - all very easy and simple to fit. Bar ends are not included in the kit .  All good but well overpriced .
