I considered my C to be unridable because of the throttle. After searching countless systems I went with the BrakeAway system with no regrets. You still have to have your hand on the throttle but you can relax your grip and maintain some resemblance of your desired speed. It takes constant tweaking on unflat surfaces but your hand/wrist/arm will be grateful.

I just have a Go Cruise, essentially a metal adjustable clothespin but better. Works great for flat straight stretches or road which is pretty much the only place you can use cruise control. Under $25 bucks and easy to install and remove.

Forgot to add that the Go Cruise works fine with my heated grips.

If you still have to keep your hand on the throttle you don't have it adjusted correctly. When grip is released, on this or any other throttle lock, it should stay in position. Now you can rest your hand in your lap or have both hands to unzip your jacket or whatever.

If you are talking about going 60 mph on a level road and having the bike speed up when going down a hill, then Yes it will need a slight throttle adjustment to reduce throttle opening so you don't speed up. Pretty sure this is what you are talking about but don't want a newbie to read your post incorrectly.

If you need to be able to grip the throttle less (like I do due to carpal tunnel in my hands) then you have to look at things like the Kuraykn Throttle Boss or the various throttle rocker products.

When I rode across the country on my 1989 CBR600F1 ( ...a trip my butt still hasnít forgiven me for.....), I used one of these.

C85A08FC-37B6-4987-BB0E-F24B1A574E8E.jpg

It worked pretty well. The reason I liked it was because it looked like it was supposed to be on the bike, and had a really clean look. If I ever was going to get another throttle lock, I believe I would get this style.
