Ive been really happy with the Go Cruise Throttle Control. it works great and stays out of the way on the grip. I leave it on full time now and i dont even notice its there. Looks like the price went up a bit from when i got it, think i paid around 9 bucks. Still a great product at $20.

I'll agree with that. I'll seldomly have it on a bike unless I'm planning on longer slabbing. Give my hand a rest.
If I had a metal guard I'd try the toilet washer.

It conforms to the gap between the end of the grip and the bar and holds the throttle open. What it really like about it is that it releases quickly, just give it push outward.
I just tried the Go Throttle and didn't like it. It takes up too much grip area for me. My hand is usually up against the flare of the grip. Also it was in the way of my fingers when I used the front brake.

|Savage||How do u set it while riding? I couldn't use it as I don't have metal bar ends. I did just buy the Go Throttle Cruise control though. It works great.|

I would call it the American Standard Mod.

Toilet throttle lock
OK here's my contribution to the KLR rep...
Get one of these
Put in on like this
Use it like this
To release just shove your hand over and it will slide back up the guard by itself
I've been using these for a couple of years now. Works great, easy to set and release. The sun will make them soft eventually and you'll have to invest anther $3. Should work with most hand guards that have a metal bar.
I had to change out mine and thought I'd share.
