Throttlemeister vs throttle lock
« on: November 25, 2012, 06:00:27 pm »
Looking at these Throttlemeisters and are they frictional with the throttle to add resistance or do they lock the throttle much like a throttle lock does? I presently like my throttle lock, just flip the lever and she's disengaged. With the throttlemeister is it just as quick or do you have to manually turn the bar end device. Looking at the cost and functionality of both. Lots of good comments for throttlemeister though. Which is best in your opinions? Thanks.

It took me a while to get the Throttlemeister adjusted to my liking, after reaching that point, I think it is great.  The  Throttlemeister  comes with washers of varying thickness to allow you to dial in the amount of resistance you want.  Mine is set to overcome the pull of the  throttle springs, not to "lock" the throttle open.

Some folks like them, some don't. Like a lot of things, it's a matter of preference. I personally like the Throttlemeister. I like that it's not in the way of anything. I also like that it looks like it belongs, because it's pretty much invisible. But not everyone finds them so agreeable.
