I installed a throttle lock by ThrottleMeister (http://throttlemeister.com/tm.html).
I had these on my VTX and love their look and functionality. They are definitely expensive and you can find other throttlelock products for much cheaper. I love the factory look that these have when installed.

You will not find the MP3 listed on their application chart. Just order the model for the Triumph Rocket III. I got the heavy (14 oz per side) and the black fluted options.

So this is cruise control for bikes. How does it shut off? In, like, an emergency?

Just roll the throttle back. I have one on my motorbike and they are great for touring and playing scrabble

ThrottleMeister for Fuoco
Luca,


This is from the throttlemeister site.
Quote:
Once you've mounted the Throttlemeister bar ends to you bike, they work like this... All of the workings of the Throttlemeister are inside the bar end itself. Once mounted, you turn the whole bar end in the same direction as opening the throttle. A piston moves in and out of the Throttlemeister itself and puts friction against the throttle tube which in turn, counteracts the throttle return spring. When installed properly, the Throttlemeister will not completely lock the throttle, you can always override the Throttlemeister in any situation. If you need to stop quickly you can just grab the throttle and turn it off.

Throttlemeister
Ditto,

I've had them on 6 or 7 bikes and wouldn't be without them on the road. A little pricey but simple to install and aircraft grade quality.

8)

That's what I have on my 400. I had it on my 250 and moved it to the 400. Works great and I sometimes miss it on the 250.

ThrottleMeister for Fuoco
I just picked up a set for my MP3 500 from i-bike.com who sells them over the internet at a discount. Unfortunately they are in California, so I got stuck with sales tax.

I have got to get one...for the name alone. It's got to be good if it's the Meister!

Exactly what I was wondering.For example say a deer ran out in front of you, your first response would probably be to grab for the brakes.So would you also have to fiddle with the ThrottleMeister too?

Since we can't assume the throttle return will work when needed most, the first response should be to decisively roll the throttle off before squeezing the brakes. If the drag mechanism is correctly set, you'll overcome the friction easily. I'd worry more about a rider either cranking it too tight, or just forgetting it's on, and causing a problem.

Just a question about the weight. When you buy a Vespa top case they give you larger bar end weights to install to counter the weight of the top case. When you buy a Givi top case you receive nothing, no counter weight.

If weight balance is a concern does the Throttlemeister's weight affect the front end response or handling?

Anyone ever tried these on a Vespa 300Super or know of a similar product?
