Has anyone found a way to do electronic cruise control on a '08 or newer Uly?

I dunno about electronic, but if you want a good cruise control unit try Thorttlemeister Bar ends.

I know what fireman is talking about. My firebolt nearly killed my right wrist till I put a throttle lock on. It works ok but you have to keep adjusting it for hills and ****. An electronic cruise like your car and stuff would be cool. My bud's Streetglide ( the Black Beluga!!) has electronic cruise, so why not the Buell's? Wayne

Electronic cruise control would be the best ideal if the cost is reasonable. They aren't cheap!

I had the same thought about throttlemeister on the Uly. Handguard can be in the way. Maybe take it off when using cruise?

I sure need that cruise control as I learned the "numb" lesson! Right hand being so heavily numb on the highway isnt the best feeling!

I'm gonna do some research next week on the newer HDs that have the same down draft fuel injections....V-Rod too. Might b able to swap one over and see if it will work.

Keep us posted as I wouldn't mind have one for my Uly as well.

I purchased the Kaoko Throttle Lock for my 2008 Uly, it works very well, I've logged around 4K miles without issue. The guards simply stretch out and get pinned under the screw that holds it in place. It comes with a counter weight so you get a nice balance. Also, the 2mm tensioner screw makes it easy to adjust the drag on the lock.
