R&G is excited to announce it has joined forces with Kaoko, the world leader in Friction Type Throttle Controls, to become exclusive UK distributor of its world-renowned Throttle Stabilizers.
Kaoko’s first “Cruise Control System” arrived in 2001 after owner Roy Mentis discovered he suffered from an extremely tired wrist during his travels through Kaokoveld in Namibia – one of the last remaining true wilderness areas on earth.
Being specifically designed for the make and model of each machine, the Kaoko Throttle Stabilizer installs easily, by simply replacing the OEM bar end weight. The system can then be engaged whilst rolling on the throttle by gripping the friction nut on the Kaoko bar weight between the small finger and palm of the hand, which maintains a slight rotational resistance on the throttle whilst still allowing the rider to open and close the throttle as needed.
R&G Managing Director Simon Hughes commented “The Kaoko Throttle Stabilizer system is a simple, yet ingenious, piece of technology that will prove to be the perfect accessory for those riders who regularly travel long distances. It is very easy to install and simple to use and will greatly reduce rider fatigue and strain on riders’ hands and wrists.”
