WHY IS CRUISE-MATE MOTORCYCLE THROTTLE CRUISE CONTROL BETTER?
- The original equipment Harley-Davidson star wheel utilizes a very fine pitch thread (32 threads / inch), which takes several turns of the star to engage or disengage the throttle lock feature. Installing a Clip On, or bolt on lever to the original star wheel won't overcome the limited travel of the fine pitch thread. The original equipment star wheel provided by Harley-Davidson is also very small and tucked under the control assembly making it very difficult to access.
- Cruise-Mate consists of a solid stainless steel cartridge assembly with much coarser internal pitch, which nearly doubles the vertical action of the friction device with the same amount of motion. This allows Cruise-Mate to engage and disengage nearly twice as fast as the original star wheel device (typically 1/4 turn or less).
- Cruise-Mate is positioned so it can be engaged or disengaged with a flip of your thumb and while engaging, the handle provides very good feel feedback, letting you know how much tension you're applying to the throttle.
- Cruise-Mate utilizes a 15 degree spring loaded male and female spline inside the handle which allows for infinite adjustment, you can even adjust while moving if necessary.
