Question Wunderlich Cruise Control for K1300S / not the same weight

Hello People,

I was about to buy one today but when I removed the original weight ends from the bike I noticed that they were substantially heavier than the one provided by Wunderlich so I didn't go ahead with the purchase. The question is: Has anyone tried and tested the Wunderlich Cruise Control for the K1300S, are they good or are should I be looking at other options/brands.

Thanks,

Diablo

That looks a lot like a Kaoko. Most guys here use a Throttlemeister. I use one of those $10 plastic jobs which works just fine for me.

I'll try and find links.

Edit: GoCruise, works great, gives temp relief as often as you need it.

Used Crampbuster until I found the other, which works better

You can also buy the Throttlemeister with extra heavy weighted ends. I'm sure you understand these devices only add friction to the throttle grip... they can maintain a constant speed on straight and level terrain, but require nearly continuous small adjustments on any other type of terrain. They still provide a lot of relief for your throttle hand on long rides...

I'm happy with the Atlas. http://www.atlasthrottlelock.com
It does take some getting used to.

Re: Wunderlich Cruise Control for K1300S / not the same weight

The units installed that apply friction to the end of the throttle tube (throttlemeister for one) need to be adjusted with your heated grips on at some point. Or, you will have then binding when not wanted. A delicate balance is needed in the shim pack.

Wunderlich is crap. Too light and small and turns the wrong way.
Go with Throttlemeister heavy weight. Beautiful product and works well
