Not for me!

I can't fault the build quality, or value for money but I didn't get along with this for my style of riding. On the open road, where I could rest my hand on it as designed for cruising, it was fine - fantastic even. But as I use my bike for commuting as well, I found it just gets in the way at lower speeds, and specifically ruins my ability to maintain fine throttle control in corners. Your mileage may vary, but this device and I just didn't get along.

Difficult to say

SBS didn't have the narrow "control" in stock so ordered the wide one. It works, and makes for easy cruising at a set speed, but it's just too wide, and is in the way when braking. I took it off and stuck it in my pocket. I'll give it another go, but am thinking of cutting it in two to narrow it down. It may be workable then.

Works well

I've used these before so knew what to expect. If you have not tried one, they do take a bit of getting used to. That's because when you don't need to use it, which is usually on short rides and/or in traffic, it can get in the way until you are familiar with its presence. It means you grip the throttle slightly differently to before you fit it. Where it becomes really effective is on longer rides when your hand might become tired, especially on motorways or similar at roughly constant speeds where there is not much throttle movement. You can then relax your grip and palm the control. I like these gadgets but probably not for everyone.

Not impressed

I tried this a couple of times and really couldn't get on with it. It is great when you are going a long distance as you don't have to grip so hard and you can get the speed and just hold it steady. However when you slow down and riding through traffic you over rev and don't have the control you need. I would have returned it but I ended up pulling it off at traffic lights and chucking it !!

A great piece of kit that really works

Having had pain in my wrist on even short rides, I was desperate for something to help. I have found the cruise control has made a huge difference. Easy to fit, very easy to get used to, even round town and no pain. Fantastic !!

A must for long distances

I've used a throttle rocker for many years and couldn't live without one now. The previous one came direct from the US when you couldn't really get them in the UK. I thought I'd try this one to see if it clamped a bit more tightly to stop the handlebar grip rotating slowly over time. It does that perfectly. It's a bit wider than the one it replaces but after a few minutes I didn't notice the difference. Thoroughly recommended.

Good stuff

Does what its supposed to, if bought again I would go for a different brand that's not so wide in the palm area like the Scottoiler version on this website. Fits over my heated Oxford grips on my Ninja 650 fine, tight to get on but fits.

Still not sure

Got size Large to use over heated grips. Whilst it certainly does what you expect at a great price, I'm still trying to find a comfortable position. I will persevere how however, but it will only get used on long motorway journeys. Careful when you first fit it, as throttle control can be difficult if set too high.

Standard cruise control

Takes some strain from your fingers / wrists.

Great piece of kit

Best bit of kit I have added to my bike for ages. Easy to fit and adjust, got rid of pins and needles and any aching on my long trip up to and around Scotland.

Highly recommended

Should have bought one years ago. It works and worth every penny. It's a fatigue beating cheap simple solution.

Surprised

After returning to bikes after along lay off, I found the pain holding the throttle caused in my right thumb was excruciating. I tried this without holding out much hope. It's brilliant. It's easy to fit and unobtrusive. Above all, it's a dirt cheap solution.

It works and is quite comfortable

A good fit on standard size grips, you will need the larger version with heated grips. It works and is quite comfortable, better on long trips at constant speeds, which after all is what it's made for but I prefer not to use it for everyday riding.

Simple but a great piece of kit

Bought it on seeing a mate using one. So simple and easy but now I've got to buy another.(lost it over Xmas).

Easy cruise control

Very simple genius product. Definitely takes some getting used to. Easy to fit just pop it into throttle grip. I use for long motorway stints only and definitely takes the strain off holding the throttle constantly. For stop start town Ride found it a bit in my way but it's just a matter of getting used to it being there.

A real boon on long Journeys

The throttle on my ZX6R isn't the lightest (even after lubing the cables). If you don't have time to take the twisty route and instead sit on the motorway, this will take some of the strain off of your wrists. As such, it does make long motorway rides a lot more comfortable. Sadly, it does nothing to make it more interesting.

Pretty good

Good piece of kit, definitely helps with longer journeys. Used this on a Trike which has a pretty heavy throttle. Would recommend.
