The Kaoko Throttle Stabilizer is what much of the market calls a “cruise control” for a motorcycle, it holds the throttle at a set point to keep fuel input steady and allows you to remove your hand from the throttle grip.
Difference between a “throttle stabilizer” and a “cruise control”? – A cruise control actually adjusts the fuel input when going up or down hills to maintain a set speed, whereas a throttle stabilizer just keeps the throttle at a set point and fuel input is stable while speed could vary depending on hills and other factors. For motorcycles that didn’t come from the factory with a true cruise control a throttle stabilizer is your best option for long trips.
Not all throttle stabilizers are the same, many slip or slowly come loose while riding, others require you keep a hand on them, some are bulky and ugly, and some are a pain to adjust or difficult/dangerous to quickly release.
The Kaoko Throttle Stabilizer has been test by us for thousands of miles after usage of many other types of throttle stabilizers. We love and use this stabilizer at MDU! We are confident in saying this is one of the best, if not the best throttle stabilizer on the market.
