Kaoko with Barkbusters and Oxford Heated Grips
« on: January 13, 2018, 05:19:38 AM »
Today I tried to install the Kaoko throttle lock. I have Oxford heated grips and Bark Busters on my bike. I have run into some problems so was hoping others that have installed it can help.
The grips hang a fair bit past the throttle tube so I cut it back.



But when putting the Kaoko on I have a big gap.

Looks like the grip was cut back a bit too much, and you need a shim of some sort to fill out the space.

The instructions said the plastic washer has to press against the throttle tube and not the rubber so I had to cut it that much for that to happen.

So I got my Kaoko installed. Sometimes it really does help to read the instructions  :156:. It says that in some cases you may need to move the throttle towards the outside of the bar, once I did this all was good.

Yes I have tried it. It will take a bit of getting used to. I haven't been able to get it to hold the speed very well but it is good for being able to occasionally set it to be able to give your hand some movement. Probably wouldn't purchase again but might change my mind when I get a chance to use it a bit more.
