Throttle meister

Looking for a throttle meister. Are they still in business. I had it on my last FJR and my Hayabusas. Like another one.

Yes, they are still in business. They can usually be found on EBAY and I have bought them directly from Throttlemeister in the past. I have them on my Gen 2.

I possibly spoke too quickly. I googled Throttlemeister.com and their web site did not show up. They were made by Marker Machine Inc. in Milwaukee.Phone 414-464-6060.

Geez...
I hope they are still in business, for the good of motorcycling!
They make an outstanding product.
Have had them on my SV1000S since 2006, great cruise control, and on my FJR (got two left bar ends) they look awesome and dampen vibration very well.

I've got a set off my 2010 I would sell for $75 if you pay the shipping. I just bought a 2014 and stripped off all my goodies. If interested PM me.

Sadly, Throttlemeister shut down a few years back. Had them on all my prior bikes. Kaoko throttle locks are the replacement now but they lack the extra weight that Throttlemeisters offered.

The Throttlemeister operation was just a small side business for Marker Machine in the Milwaukee area. Evidently they got tired of the Throttlemeister part of the business and closed it off.
I believe Marker is still going, but the last time I called they were very, very uninterested in discussing the motorcycle parts.
I've been using them since on my old Connie back in the late '80s I think. The prices when they appear on Ebay have gotten pretty extravagant.
A bike just doesn't look right to me without them.
The current HVMP is a potential replacement to some degree, without the lock feature.
