What are cruise controls?
A cruise control is a throttle controlling mechanism that enables the rider to secure their throttle to a desired opening or setting.
The Kaoko Cruise Control Kit consists of a simple, ingenious and robustly designed friction nut that is integral with a special Kaoko™ handle bar end weight. The Kaoko™ bar end weight is closely matched in appearance and weight to the Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) bar end weight. Most installations simply require the removal of the OEM bar end weight and the fitting of the Kaoko Cruise control kit in its place.
Operation of the Kaoko Cruise Control
To Engage: Whilst rolling on the throttle, the friction nut can be gripped between your small finger and palm of your hand. This action tightens the nut and provides sufficient friction to set throttle to the desired opening. (The friction is such that the rider may still open and close the throttle. It simply has a slight rotational resistance to it.)
To Disengage: Whilst rolling off the throttle, grip the friction nut between your small finger and palm of your hand. The throttle should open and snap closed freely when correctly disengaged.

In most cases the fitting of the Kaoko cruise control simply requires the removal of the OEM throttle side bar weight, and replacing it with the Kaoko cruise control kit.
