Atlas Throttle Lock

Does anyone here have one of these? If so how do you like it?

Never heard of it.

I've had 3 different ones on my bike-

Vista Cruise- inexpensive, easy adjust, medium install;

Koako- easy install, moderate $, easy to use;

Brake-Away- Big $$, difficult to install & keep adjusted, simple to use once properly fitted.

Never heard of them either.

Used Throttlemeisters and BrakeAway; for me the BrakeAway wins that hands down, just expensive unless you can get a nice used one that wasn't trashed. Once you have the BrakeAway installed and adjusted, I doubt you want anything other than an actual cruise control.

I actually have both the Brake-Away and the Koako mounted right now, at the same time. The Koako serves a different purpose than just locking. It's an easily adjustable friction type so for long straight and flat like the Coastal Carolinas, I can ease the tension needed for minor throttle adjustments for those little hills. The Brake-Away IMHO isn't very good for that. It locks the throttle down pretty hard. It feels like I'm going to break something trying to adjust the throttle with it engaged. I've also found the Brake-Away to be temperature sensitive. I can adjust it for below 80*F or above it but it doesn't work well for the whole riding temperature range without readjusting once in a while.

Atlas

This system is pretty new to the market. It was designed and developed by a man who rode his motorcycle around the world two up with his wife. Made of stainless steel. Easy to install and looks very well made.

It looks interesting and innovative..... watched the video, it will work on one of my bikes and not the other.... my aftermarket heated grips are two different designs.

I'm not familiar with the Atlas throttle lock, but I REALLY like the Throttlemeister you sold me!
I hope all is well with you, and thanks again!

I bought the Atlas throttle lock for my Ninja 1000 ABS. It was clunky and didn't work well. I thought it was a piece of trash. I was thankful that I could return it for a full refund.

I'm a Throttlemeister fan. I've also used Vista cruise, but I prefer the 'meisters.
