R1100 throttle lock switch

I remember reading a article on the web regarding replacing the right hand switch with a European version which has a throttle lock.

Can anyone provide the link?

I found the picture. The throttle lock is on the top. What is the part number?

Thanks,

Google "Flip-a-lever"

It is similar to the above, and can be retrofitted to the stock switch gear.

Stock switch does not have a hole for the locking screw.

Drill, tap! Very simple, and has been done for years. No sense replacing the stock one.

The earliest 1100s did.

Hi, what you have pictured there is the "authorities" control housing with the "authorities" locking bolt. The thing works great. It was/still is? in the micro fiche specific to authorities. The bolt has a nylon tip and a spring. There were two versions of the bolt, one taller than the other.

Has nothing to do with the switch assembly.

The control housing is held to the master cyl with two fasteners, one of which is a small cross head bolt that you can see by bending back the the hand grip rubber a bit. btw- at some point you may r-r the m-cyl. That bolt will be seized. The head strips easily Drill the head then remove the housing and the rest of the bolt comes right off.

To install the auth. control housing you need to remove the heater grip. It's hard to save the heater but there are techniques. You may wish to do this in conjunction with any handle bar upgrade.

It looks like you can drill the stock control housing but you need a two step hole. I would just try to find one in fm or the bay. If you keep at it you will locate one. Worth having. The bolt/thumb screw may be harder to find. They get damaged in tip-over.

Here is a good photo of the tip over style installed. I saw it on an RT parked near to where I work.
