Title: McCruise sale
Post by: FlyingRedHorse on February 28, 2018, 03:35:05 pm
Got an email from McCruise, 15% off for their 21st Birthday.  Says their first ever sale.  I didn't see any end date for the sale so I don't know if is today only? :beerchug:

Money well spent even at full price.

I’ve had McCruise for a few years on my 2012 C14. Happy with it. No complaints other than it’s a bit slow to come one line and maintain speed initially.

 I've had more than one and have had no regrets. So nothing to complain about. Well other than the manufacturers not installing them OEM. Well I guess Kawasaki anyway. Yamaha did finally install it on some of their bikes like the comparable FJR. Maybe Kawasaki with follow suit someday. Of course that would take business away from McCruise, which would suck since they are tops in my book. I would buy from them again in a heart beat if the need arose.

So many threads on MC Cruise, but this is the latest I think so I'll add my 2 cents here.

I just installed a MC Cruise on my 2010 C-14 ABS. The level of detail in the instructions is amazing. Every step of the process has a photo showing exactly what that step should look like. This includes removing all the necessary tuperware piece by piece down to where to plce the wire ties when securing the wires. If you are new to working on a rather complicated bike like the C-14, the number of pages in the installation manual can seem daunting. But just check off each step before moving to the next and you will be fine. The end result for me was that the cruise worked great right out of the box after the install. The calibration settings were spot on from the factory for me so no calibration adjustments were needed as far as I was concerned. I did have to tighten the throttle cable slack more than what was suggested in the instructions, but that was to get the manual off/on throttle transition I wanted, not to get the cruise functioning correctly. The functionality of the MC Cruise on my C-14 is very close to the factory cruise in my 2014 Silverado, that is to say it works very well. It is expensive, but for me the plug and play install, the level of detail in the instructions, and finally the well tuned functionality of the installed product justifies the cost.

I believe the sale ended last month. I placed my order just prior to the expiration of the sale.

My dealer installed the unit, and it works very well. I may change the bracket location. I thought I had ordered a top mount, but when I picked it up it was mounted on the bottom. Compared to the factory cruise units I have experienced, I notice the MC Cruise is a bit slower to engage. I find I hold the button for a full second at a steady throttle for better engagement, whereas a factor cruise you just tap it, and it is locked in.

Anyway, it was a necessary mod for me.
