here is the Catapillar o ring throttle lock. Its not realy a lock, but it holds the throttle in whatever position you leave it in. you can still shut down the throttle. It can be easily popped off when needed. Its a bit more difficult to put on. (which is perfect in my mind)
unlocked




Locked

I love simple solutions... Do you have the dimensions for the o-ring? I'm guessing on McMaster-Carr you can order 10-20 for $4.

EDIT: Just found them on fleabay for $1 and $.50 shipping.

Thanks for the part # and ebay info. I just ordered 2 Hope they work on the 'Strom. But hey, for $2.50 how can you go wrong?

They only had 143 left, so get yours quick!

Edit: Just put the part # in the ebay search to find it.

The Caterpillar o-ring solution goes back to the R1150GS (probably the 1100GS as well). Nothing new under the Sun.


There is a thread back about '04 that covers this.

Thanks for the idea and link! Ordered a few extras because everything here in the desert dries out and cracks in record time.

Wow, I'm glad this thread got revived. I ordered one of these today. Total including shipping was $7.09. At that price it's worth the trying it.

I have these on both my bikes. Good idea. Only complaint on the beemer: they push your hand further outward and this makes it harder to use the turn signal switch on the right side. Other than that they work great. Wish BMW had returned to the left hand turn signal switches that the rest of the world use before the F800GS was designed but what do you do...

r1200gs?

Somebody else asked the same question I was wanting to know and it doesn't look like it was ever answered. Will these work on a r1200gs?

Thanks!
