    Hi David, I'd like a code so I can order one for my new to me BMW F800GS Adventure. Are most f800 GSA people ordering the top or bottom mount? Thanks

    Hey Slowagain! How new is "new to me"? If it's a pre-2013 than you'll need a Top Kit to clear the blinker button. If it's a '13 or newer than you'll want the Bottom Kit. I'll send you the code now.

    Just installed one on my ‘13 1200 GSA and man what a difference! This is the fourth friction lock I’ve used (keiko, omni cruise, knockoff) and this is by far the best I’ve used. The other models worked, after a fashion, but vibrations would always cause my speed to drop. With this, once locked, my throttle was f’ing locked! In fact on down slope sections my speed would increase (as you would expect). The buttons are easy to manipulate, the cancel button has a hair trigger, and once adjusted they are handily located without being in the way. Money well spent and highly recommend!

    I LOVE this kind of feedback! I'm so glad you're out there and using it! We are pushing hard to get into different dealerships around the USA and Europe, so if you feel inclined to mention us next time you're at your local dealer ship, we'd greatly appreciate it!

    Thanks again!

    Hello David,

    I think I made a small mistake in my install and didn't push the resistance pad as much as it would go in in order to maximize the surface area of contact when the lock is activated. Right now, it loses speed very gradually... I plan to remove it and redo it again. I am assuming that the process to remove the lock is simply a reversal of the steps - can you please confirm? or advise if I need to be careful about something? Thanks a lot!

    Just loosen the screw, adjust, re-tighten, and enjoy.

    Hey @De-Silva, @tmEvol is right, all you need to do is loosen the bolt and pull the clamp arm off. What type of motorcycle are you mounting it to? Also, would you be able to post a picture of the ATLAS' friction pad placement and the throttle housing so I can see it? You only need a fraction of the friction pad to touch the throttle housing (when engaged) for it to hold.

    Thanks!

    Hi David,

    Indeed, the uninstall was easy.... and I have put it back too. I have a Yamaha FJ-09 and am using a bottom type lock.

    I was using the 2nd thickest pad on there and was slowly losing speed... tested it on many runs... This time, I used the thickest pad and also managed to get a larger surfce area for friction.

    Initial tests - it seems to work. I'll keep you posted on how it goes. Thanks!

    Hi David, I'd like a code so I can order one for my 2016 Africa Twin. Are most people ordering the top or bottom mount? Thanks

    Just sent you a code. You will need the Top Kit for the Africa Twin. The Bottom Kit won't work with that throttle housing.
