What makes the ATLAS Throttle Lock so great? We made the ATLAS for YOU, not just your motorcycle. The term throttle lock can be misleading because the ATLAS doesnt actually lock the throttle of your motorcycle.It mounts to the plastic throttle tube and when engaged, the Friction Pad presses against the throttle housing to hold your throttle where you set it. To adjust your speed, simply rotate the throttle manually and it will hold the new position until you push the Off button. Here are a few key differences that truly set the ATLAS apart from anything else on the market. Smooth Riding Experience: The ATLAS engages and disengages without any change in speed. Other designs force you to decelerate when disengaging their units. No more lurching on the freeway. Ergonomic and Intuitive: Using non-dominant fingers, twisting or reaching to set a throttle lock is dangerous for obvious reasons. The ATLAS is activated with your thumb and is always within reach. The ATLAS Doesn't Require Grip Space: Other designs demand a portion of your grip.
The ATLAS simply mounts to the throttle tube between the grip and the throttle housing, leaving you with a full grip. Bolts on within 10 minutes: During installation, there's no need to remove grips, handguards, heated grips, bar end mirrors... The ATLAS works perfectly with them all.On the road, I broke my right wrist. I rode for months before I could get proper surgery. During that time, all the shortcomings of that throttle lock were magnified. I researched all the available throttle locks on the market and I was disappointed with the lack of function. After riding through 28 countries with vastly different climates and terrain, I knew exactly what I needed in a throttle lock. First, is there enough room for the ATLAS? All you need is a gap of 0.1 (2.5mm) or greater between the grip and the throttle housing. That's roughly 3 bank cards thick. Nearly every motorcycle has a throttle tube and a throttle housing. The ATLAS mounts to the throttle tube, which allows the ATLAS to rotate with your throttle, and most importantly your thumb. Once the ATLAS is engaged, a friction pad on a stopper arm hinges out from the ATLAS and presses against side of the throttle housing. That friction pad is what holds the ATLAS in place. You'll want the Bottom Kit.. If theres a heated grip wire that comes out the top half of the rubber grip flange. If you have more than 1.5 inches (38mm) of clearance between the inner plastic throttle tube (under the rubber grip) and the gas tank at a full right turn. If there's a bulge, bracket or object sticking out of the top half of the throttle housing that would interfere with the body of the ATLAS. If there's no other interferences, then it's a personal preference. You'll want the Top Kit.. If theres a heated grip wire that comes out the bottom half of the rubber grip flange. If you have less than 1.5 inches (38mm) of clearance between the inner plastic throttle tube (under the rubber grip) and the gas tank at a full right turn. If there's a bulge, bracket or object sticking out of the bottom half of the throttle housing that would interfere with the body of the ATLAS. Tell me more about the Friction Pads. We tested dozens of friction pads and these are the best on the market. They are made of polyurethane and have a special adhesive meant for metal surfaces. We have riders with over 40,000 miles with one pad.
The pads are the only wear item on the ATLAS, that is why we supply you with extra pads in your kit. They function like brake pads on a rotor. Your kit will include a total of 6 pads. There are 3 thicknesses in your kit. These pads fit like shims between the ATLAS and the throttle housing.The item "ATLAS Throttle Lock A Motorcycle Cruise Control Throttle Assist TOP KIT" is in sale since Thursday, July 8, 2021.
