Throttle locks ?
Written by ombestudio on 7/14/2010 at 01:15 pm

Hi guys, I'm kinda new around here and mostly a lurker. I do have a stupid
problem and really need some help... so here goes.

I have an '89 and bought a vista cruise throttle lock like I've done for all my
past motorcycles. I can't get the freakin thing onto the PC though. I understand
about either cutting a slot or drilling a hole to mount it, that isn't the
problem. It seems to be too tight. I guess I have the one for 7/8 bars but they
don't have one for 1" bars except the one with the bar across the housing. With
the single one I have, the throttle is too tight, it doesn't just release and
snap back and you can't even twist the throttle normally. I have enough room
between the housing and grip. I hope I made some sense.

This is so stupid!

Any help is much appreciated.

Orrin

    Orrin, The bars on the PC are 7/8" at the ends, they are only 1" at the center where the clamps are. If the slot for the tab is not cut in the correct location and with a slight cnearance the unit can't float to canter itself on

      Mine was binding up a little because I didn't drill the hole for the tab in the right location. I went to the hardware and bought a couple of 7/8 inch I.D. nylon washers and put one on each side to keep it away from the housing and the grip a

        Thank you guys for the responses. I actually cut the tab off the throttle lock and figured I would just drill into the housing. I never got that far because I can't seem to position it where it isn't binding. As far as having the screw fo

          Strange, something is not right. I think my adjustment screw is in about four or five turns. Please don't ask me to check. --- In

            Ok, I won't ask... I pretty much have it working now. I think I'm going to pick up a couple of those washers though and try that. Thanks for all the help. --- In

              I just put mine on a few days ago. (Thanks for the pre-drilled hole, Gib.) When I first put mine on, I also had some problems with the throttle releasing. After tinkering with it for a while, it suddenly started releasing. While I thought it

                When installing a Vista Cruise with the stock grips, the grip has to be pulled away from the housing just a little bit to make room for the Vista.....but then the grip hangs over and binds up on the bar end. I always trim the little ridge off
