I used one of those caterpillar silicon oil seals on my 1050. Part number is still current - 8m4991.

It worked very well. It still allowed opening or closing the throttle while in position, albeit with a bit more resistance to it. When not in use just roll it over to the outer end of the bar weight.

Found it much easier to use than the dedicated cruise on my xrt.

Used one of them seals on my Bandit 12 when riding to South of France etc in the late 1990s/early2000s    :002:
