What is it?

There is an "ON" indicator on my bar end weights. I have no clue what it is or does. Does anyone know what it is used for?

Thanks!

could it be a mechanical cruise "throttle lock" ?

Yes I had those on my bandit, Twist it and it screws itself against the end of the throttle tube. I think it is the nicest and most effective of the mechanical throttle holders.

Thank you to all who responded. You not only answered my question but I was able to adjust the Throttlemeister so that it should work as intended.

On long freeway cruises, which I hate, it takes a little fidgeting. Over several miles the throttle would stay set but the bike constantly creeps up or down in speed. You can look at a 20 mile stretch of interstate that looks perfectly flat to the eye but actually has enough elevation change to effect the speed of the bike.

I purchased a set of Throttlemeister bar-end throttle lock earlier this year from another forum member. I use it every time I ride. If your bike doesn't have cruise, it's the next best thing. The company closed a few years ago, so finding a used set is your only option, consider yourself fortunate that your bike came with them.
