XT225 cruise control

I'm buying an XT-225 and riding it back from Chicago to Annapolis. Can I remove the throttle return spring and get a poor mans cruise control? I think it has a CV carb stock. BTW its a 2002. -Jason

Teenie tiny little bungie cord, hooks (both) on the mirror stem, the lenght of the bungy down and under the throttle - between the housing and the rubber flange that keeps your thumb, side of your hand and forefinger from hitting the cable housing.

I'm trying to find a pic that Hayduke put up when he still rode a KLR, but I'm having a hard time finding it. I'll find it though.

You could probably install a ~$20 Vista Cruise or NEP throttle lock pretty quickly

I thought about the vista cruise or similar and I've had them on past bikes but as I remember they're sort of permanent. might be wrong though. I have a cramp buster and maybe that will be enough? -Jason
