    Default Dead man throttles

    If your twist grip is not equipped with a throttle lock screw what are you using hold hold the throttle open for highway cruising?

    I dont like cruise control in vehicles, doubt I would use a throttle lock if I had it but might be nice on the cold days to warm both hands on the jugs?

    came across this awhile back, my bike already has a throttle lock, but this is the route I'd consider if it didn't, although I'm not a fan of the throttle lock, but it is nice to have just in case I guess

    Mine sticks 100% of the time. I have to roll it back. I'll trade you for one of those fancy ones that returns on it's own.

    If I'm on a stretch long enough where I have to even think about using a cruise control, I'm doing it wrong. #countryroadsFTW

    Is there enough meat on the housing to drill and tap it and use a thumbscrew for a throttle lock?

    Actually I've already done that, with this one and the four or five before it. Because I run a throttle return spring on my B, I have to crank down on the screw pretty tight to hold the grip barrel and the threads just dont last all that long.

    The housing is steel right? Maybe have a nut welded on there... Not a big deal if you have a friend that can weld.

    You might be able to double nut a thread insert too... Then just run the stop in the insert.

    my 08 street bob has that little X shaped screw thing that i know is supposed to be throttle lock, but even if i crank it all the way down, it doesn't work.
    is there something i need to adjust inside to make it work? too much tension on the return cable maybe?

    No, it's that pot metal cast stuff - but you did give me a great idea, thanks
