New Farkle: Kaoko Cruise Control

Found this deal on the BMWMOA site's "flea market" on a barely used Kaoko Cruise Control unit and it arrived today! It was installed in under a minute and it's engagement/disengagement is easily deduced and mastered. Can't wait to try it out tomorrow. All I was able to try tonight was engaging it with the throttle just slightly twisted from idle to see how it held.

As with my Honda Aero 750, now I'll be able to momentarily take my right hand from the throttle to shake it out when it cramps up during the longer rides. It was not as cheap as the Vista Cruise Control that I had with the Aero but it sure went on easy!

From the Kaoko site:

1)Throttle grip 2)Friction nut 3)Special Handlebar End-weight
4)Bar Weight Retaining Screw 5)Grub Screw

More to follow once I get some riding in with this unit.
