help with Kaoko throttle lock

Hello,
I needed help with a install. I just picked up a kaoko throttle lock with barkbusters vps handguards from another inmate.

I've attached a picture of the endbar weights + kaoko parts. I'm unable to get it to work. the manual says something about a plastic washer, but not very clear. I didn't get the installation sheet from the seller.

any help would be appreciated.
thanks,
karthik

The same throttle lock is used for the single and the twin.

Here is a link to installation on the F 800 same as the F 650 twin: http://f800riders.org/forum/showthre...rottle-control

Here is a picture of the install. There is small gap between the plastic end weight cover and the kaoko..

I believe the plastic spacer they mentioned is for heated grips. It looks like you have the notched wheel on the wrong side, it should be next to the rubber grip. If you rotate the wheel in the direction of increased throttle it should move toward the center of the bars. The wheel creates friction between itself and the grip. Roll it forward and it disengages.
Did the kaoko you bought come off the same model bike as your's?

I've got heated grips

JRP,
thanks for the note. are these for non-heated grips? I picked this up on the fleamarket from another inmate who said it'll fit the f650twins. he had a f800gs I think.

the thread on the notched wheel on the kaoko is smaller than the end weight bar screw size. Hence I dont think I can put it next to the grip. Did I get the wrong set up for f650gs with heated grips?
thanks.

It seems from the website you need the spacer for heated grips and the setup for the 650/800 is as pictured. Have you contacted the inmate to see how they were installed on his bike? He may have forgotten to send a spacer.
If you can get me dimensions I can make a spacer for you.

Hi JRP,
Thanks for your offer. I am trying to reach the inmate who sold this to me, but unable to get a response. Very unusual on this forum, but..
Anyways, I'd really appreciate it if you could help me with the spacers.
I'll PM you the details.

I had one of those on my 800. I have the original instructions. I'll scan it and send it to you this afternoon. Send a pm with your email address.
I also have the tiny allen wrench to adjust the friction. You need to lock the friction in with the tiny allen wrench at just the right setting. Then, when you roll the wheel over, it engages.
After a time, with wear and movement, it needs to be readjusted. Thus, you must remember where you put the tiny allen wrench. I'll send you the little wrench also, no charge, include your address in pm if you want it.
