    Finally got the opportunity to try mine out today on a run down to South Wales along the M4.

    Cruising at 70mph I applied the throttle lock which, unfortunately, didn't hold the speed. The lock allowed the grip to slowly close. I tried it several times varying the speed from Fifty up to eighty! It simply would not hold! Coming back I pushed the O-ring further up to the second notch but it still wouldn't hold the throttle open at a constant speed.

    I've now placed a small piece of inner tube underneath the teeth of the lock and will try it out on the straight tomorrow on my way home from work in the hope that it'll make a difference but I have to say I'm not optimistic.

    Overall, I'm quite disappointed and left wondering how they work for some and not others?

    Are your grips worn out or covered in Pledge
    You can use a zip tie instead of the o-ring and make it really tight but don't overdo it
    Maybe you would be better off returning it and i will refund you

    Interesting? I use mine for limiting speed in the villages around North Wales where the police usually are. Therefore not limiting the speed for that long at a time. I fitted two rings of old inner tube to mine from the off to save damaging the original heated grip rubber. This has worked perfectly well as the inner tube grips the grip but allows just the right movement to the throttle lock.
    Hope this helps and a great deal cheaper than the alternatives including buying a new fly by wire system bike.

    I had the mk1 version which didnt have the notch in, and i had the same problem. Having looked at my grips compared to others, mine are a bit shiney and smooth.
    As luck would have it we found a suitable spring and hooked it through the 2 small holes and managed to adjust the tension so now it is perfect!!

    Thanks for that, Garry, I went out after fitting the inner tube (grips not overly worn) and tried it out on the relatively new and smooth Hereford by-pass with a much better result. Not complete success either but better. I'm going to try putting two O-rings on each notch to see if that is better still.

    I still believe this is a great idea and really want it to work. If it doesn't I may pm you and take you up on your offer.

    Cheers,

    MM

    Just to say, the price vs the gain means this is an exceptionally good value addition to any GS..!!!
