    Default Kuryakin Premier Throttle Assist or Breakaway Cruise control?

    hello to everyone, I'm thinking of putting on one of the two cruise control devices and I was wondering what your opinions are on either one of them and which one do you think is a more efficient one. Also are there any videos of the installation for the M109R with any one of these two? I've seen many with other bikes but not on the M109r with these two. Also are there any videos on heated grips installations for the M109R out there with the cruise control and heated grips together? I haven't seen any and as opposed to having it installed by the dealer I'd rather do it myself because they are very pricey in the end. Thank you very much in advance.

    I've installed the Kuryakin types on other bikes but not the 9 and they are pretty much the same for any and not hard to install. I don't like the look of them so I went with Atlas Throttle lock and simple to install and look great https://www.atlasthrottlelock.com/

    I have it on current heated Oxford grips and just received my Avon Air Cushion heated grips on Tuesday and will be installing them this winter. They look much more custom than the Oxford and are supposed to more comfortable. http://avongrips-com.3dcartstores.co...ed-_p_450.html


    The Avon are a little more work to install as you have to drill through the handle bar weights and then drill a hole in the bars to fish the wires through internally

    That sounds like alot of work for a noob like myself. I've seen how easy it was to out the oxford on through a video on YouTube. Why did you decide to go with the Avon? Thanks for your your response brother.

    Also, which model of the Atlas throttle lock did you get for the 9?

    I went with the bottom mount Atlas just to keep it cleaner looking. With the Oxford the buttons are higher than as the Oxford wire is at the bottom and it now says to use top mount for that. It didn't say that when I bought it, they said to get bottom mount on the 9. That has since been revised but with the Avon it will now sit perfect.

    If you can drill a hole, it's not difficult to install the Avons. Small hole big enough for the wires through the weight, about 1/8" then about 1/4" hole on the bottom of the handle bars. Push the wire through the weight and as it gets to the hole underneath handle bars grab it with small pick or tweezers

    Start with using a center punch in middle of weight so your bit doesn't skip around, repeat on bars which will be easier to get through

    The weight is probably hard steel so just use a quality bit and keep it oiled and slow speed.

    FlyingCircus,

    How was the install for the Atlas? Seems pretty straight forward according to them but throttle locks are often a balancing act and frustrating to get right.

    Was that the same way?

    You can see it sits higher than it should because of the wire setup of the Oxford grips. When throttle is at highway speed it's about 45 degrees down but will be perfect with Avons.

    The Oxford grips are about same length as stock and you can see the Avons are alot longer which will make them more comfortable. Also the Oxfords are very hard. I put grip puppies on them last season and they were much more comfortable but I wore through the brake side grip puppies on the outside end

    Haven't installed yet. I've got a bullet theme going on and the 9mm casings fit perfect. They have different end caps as well

    I had a Brake Away on my bike, they're an extremely nice and effective cruise control. The fact you can disable it with the brake lever is a big plus. I took it off because it made me rotate the handlebars higher than I like them. I like them barely clearing the tank at full lock, found another c.c. whcih mounts overtop the brs instead of hanging below them, also disables with the brake lever.

    My Brake Away is sitting in my garage gathering dust, still have the instructions as well. The new version is very easy to install and adjust. Will be selling it in the classifieds in the near future.

    Looks really cool with the 9mm casings!! If you can video the procedure that would he awesome. I'm thinking of putting the Atlas locks on the stock grips for now and add the Avons during the winter. How long did tue Avons take to come with ebay. I'm in Montreal Canada. Just curious.

    A brake away was my first choice, but they don't make a black edition for BOSS 109's.

    I contacted them and they said there just wasn't enough demand. Too bad.

    What type of CC did you buy? The one sitting in your garage is that for your m109r?

    Was it easy to instal the breakaway? Any modifications to the throttle grip required ? I was very impressed with the breakaway from the get go because of that option of disengage from the break lever. The atlas looks pretty good and simple as well. What's the new one you have? Thanks

    Unless something has changed there shouldn't be any special instruction to install the break-A-way.

    One thing i wish to make very clear is that the brake-A-way as well as the others listed in this thread are NOT Cruise Controls as you have in your car....its more of a throttle lock so if you do alot of Group riding and you are hoping to set it and forget it you will not be happy as you will be constantly adjusting the output unless the roads are PERFECTLY FLAT AND STRAIGHT which can be somewhat of a pain however even though it doesnt self adjust it does do a good enough job so that i would Absolutely without a doubt reinstall the Brake-A-Way throttle lock on my bike without hesitation if the need were to arise.

    BTW i run both the Brake-a-way as well as the Kury wrist rest perch but i installed them on both girps which is actually a very comfortable Improvement over stock. Installing either is about a 2 fro. 1 to 10 woth 10 beomg an engine rebuild while using some. Pliers and a monkey wrench.

    I'll have to go out to the garage and check out the package for the new one. Can't recall the name off the top of my head. But it's a fairly large contraption that mounts to the grip, and the bulk of it is above the grip, rather than below like the Brake Away. Available in black or chrome, I have a chrome one on my Nine and a flat black one on my B-King.

    The Brake Away mounts to the bike as is, no modifications required at all. It's fairly simple to mount and adjust. Wish I could keep it on the bike, but I do love having my bars rolled down as far as possible. The Brake Away hit the tank at full right lock, the new one doesn't. The new one isn't "pretty" per se, but it'll work. I've gotten used to it.

    I can video rest of install. Here's holes drilled through bar weights. Not bar end weights LOL. They are about 6" long. A real pain to drill through but doable. Lots of oil , pressure and slow speed. Drilled last night both sides but reached the end of my drill bit length. Had to pick up a long one today to get through the last couple inches.

    I installed a set of heating elements onto a 4 wheeler for a friend that had solid bars due to end weights spot welded into the bars which i thiught i would need to drill out but turned out i did not need to do so when using a set similar to what is in the link i posted. These elements go between the bar/throttle tube and the grip material.Nd did not need to drill goles to run the wires. I tied the wire to the push pull cables on the underside od the bar /grips that worked out perfectly.... they Actually seemed to work to good and needed to be cycled on and off or they would get to hot even on low. Now I'm sure this is very dependent on which product you buy but if you have the electronic skills to install settings type of fine tuning control i would absolutely do that while i'm at it. Its amazing busy how much difference sounds heated grips and a heated seat can make them the weather turns cold unexpectedly when it riding.....its live having a winter riding leather speed on the bike away all times.

    Lol it would have been good for me to post the link, Duh!!!

    The Oxfords wires are outside on the inside of the grips. The Avons wires are inside the grips and attach to the outside cone. So there is no room to move them outside of bars. Need to drill hole through weights and then another hole out through the handle bars. Tomorrow I'm gonna drill them behind the brake and clutch Master cylinders to run along with cables. Once they are run I'll calk the hole with polyurethane to waterproof the handle bars internals. This will be hidden by the master cylinders

    I like the casing accents you went with, very nice personal touch .
    Have you tried polishing them up to a mice shiny brass surface finish then clear coat them with some basic clear coat to keep them looking nice?

    I polish the ones on the bike now all the time. Good suggestion to clear coat. The ones in the grip pics I haven't polished yet as I just set them in there to see if they fit.

    Default Bar weights

    When I installed my Avon heated grips I removed the bar end weights. Drilled out the spot weld, drilled a shallow hole in the end of the weight, put a screw in it and yanked it out. Never effected bar vibes at all.
