    More versatile version now available
    Tension is adjustable via O-ring
    Have tried it on my TTR250 and my 1200GS works fine on both
    Should fit most bikes
    Will come with spare O-rings
    Price will be £11

    Just this minute ordered one.

    Rode down to the south of Wales and back the other day and had to coast on the clutch a few times whilst on the M4. One of these was on my mind every time.

    Gotta do the same journey in a couple of weeks time so will report back then.

    Thanks Garry.

    Going by the pictures and what had been said before I assumed (always a bad thing to do) that the O-rings would be included!

    Can you clarify please Gerry?

    Following the above my feedback was to be disappointing as at anything above 40 the CC / TL slips back too rapidly - clearly dangerous and, I assume, a result of it not having sufficient grip on the bar to counter the increased tension with increased speed.
    I'm clearly not the only one to have this difficulty as I assume v2, with the o ring, is intended to increase the grip on the bar.
    Given that v1 was a prototype I would be really grateful if you'd send me a free v2. I will gladly cover the postage.
    Many thanks

    You must not even need this thing.. as clearly you are a wasserboxer owner...

    Got a round file? or even a drill with a 4mm drill bit?...

    It would take a 7 year old 5 minutes to get the O-ring notches into the v1 as far as I can see...

    Al...

    Grateful for your comments but not addressed to you. Time taken to amend the original is not the point - v1 is not fit for purpose yet being sold as such.
    And no, not an LC owner

    Hi Nck v1 was not a protype and works perfect
    v2 is designed to be more versatile and cover a greater range of bikes

    You are the only person with a problem...
    The throttle shuting off is "clearly dangerous " W.T.F ?
    I have refunded your money mate

    The O-rings will be included you could also use a cable tie
    You must fit the O-ring/cable tie once you have fitted it over the grip
    There is nothing wrong with the non O-ring version on a 1200GS
    The O-ring version is just more adaptable and will fit more bikes
    And has replaced the non O-ring version because i can't see much point making 2 types
    You will be able to use the O-ring type on a 1200 without the O-rings
    Pics on Ebay updated

    Who took my muscles and turned them into jelly.
    Took them from my arms and wrapped them around my belly
