BMW Motorcycles - ATLAS Throttle Lock

Sale price Price $135.00 Regular price

The ATLAS Throttle Lock was built for adventure and motorcycle touring. Are you still wondering why BMW didn't put cruise control on your motorcycle? Well, stop thinking about it, get an ATLAS, and go ride. The Top Kit ATLAS was designed specifically for pre-2013 BMW motorcycles with right-hand turn signals, while the Bottom Kit ATLAS works beautifully with the 2013-present bikes.

You may be wondering if the ATLAS can handle everything you have planned for it. Yes it can! The ATLAS is on bikes in over 30 countries around the world and counting. We have riders actively circumnavigating the planet with the ATLAS on their motorcycles. You are in good company, no matter which continent you're on.

Oh, and extra points to anyone who knows where our logo with the diagonal lines comes from!

Neither Kits work on the R1200C and R1200CL because of the chrome grip flange. You will need to remove the chrome grip flange and replace it with a rubber BMW grip.

Top Kit: You'll want a Top Kit if:

  • There is less than 1.5 inches (38 mm) of clearance between the tank and the throttle housing at full right turn.
  • There's a heated grip wire that comes out the bottom half of your rubber grip flange.

Bottom Kit: You'll want the Bottom Kit if:

  • There's a heated grip wire that comes out the top half of your rubber grip flange.
  • There are no other interferences. The majority of motorcycles will be able to use the Bottom Kit.

ATLAS Throttle Lock Installation Instructions

What's included with the Kit?

Your kit comes with everything you need to mount the ATLAS on many different motorcycles.

  • Installation Instructions
  • Allen Key (2mm)
  • 2 M3 Bolts with thread locker
  • 3 sizes of friction pads (2 of each)
  • Alcohol Prep Pad
  • Stickers

Friction Pads are required.

The ATLAS Throttle Lock was designed to be used with friction pads. Friction pads can last anywhere from 3,000 miles to 40,000+ miles. The wear depends on how often you rotate the throttle while it is engaged and if your throttle housings has sharp edges that rub on the friction pad. If you need replacement friction pads, you can buy more here: Friction Pads.

Which friction pad should you use?

The friction pads come in 3 different thicknesses. Your kit comes with two of each size but you will only need to apply one pad to your ATLAS. Watch our installation video and follow the instructions to determine which friction pad works best. You will want to start with the thickest friction pad and see if it fits between the throttle housing and the ATLAS Stopper Arm. If it doesn't fit, try the next size down until you find the right size that does not make contact with the throttle housing when disengaged.

Where should I place my friction pad?

We recommend adhering the friction pad along the top edge of the Stopper Arm, but, for some motorcycles, this isn't the best solution. If your throttle housing has any bevels on it which will interfere with the friction pad during any part of the rotation, then you will want to adjust the placement of the friction pad to avoid those bevels. Sometimes this means placing the friction pad a few millimeters away from the top edge of the stopper arm, or maybe placing it to the far right or left on the stopper arm.

NOTES:

1. The chrome grip flange must be removed before mounting the ATLAS. Top Kit can be used after chrome grip flange is removed. Bottom Kit may interfere with use of indicator button on housing.

3.

4. Installing the ATLAS on F800 models is very similar to the R1200 installation, the only difference is that the F800 has a narrower mounting surface. For F800 install instructions, refer to the R1200 installation video below.

Atlas on a 2006 Yamaha Roadliner

Works as well as the videos show from the MFG. I had a cheap $30.00 one on that used the grip w/Allen screws and having to keep adjusting it to hold. After final adjustment with the $30.00 clamp the throttle would stick when not in use nor return fast to close.
Thus, comes the Atlas and works flawlessly.
Safe and easy to use.
Built like a tank and you can’t hurt it.
Comes with enough spacer pads for any bike.
I did notice that once engaged, I did have to throttle on just a tad to keep my speed because I must have just rested my hand and moved the throttle but that was my fault.
Works well and keeps speed.
Clean all areas and where the pad contacts the bike.
Would recommend to all.
Thanks for a excellent product!

Easy to Install and Use!

Just installed the Atlas Throttle Lock for 2019 Kawasaki Vulan S and happy with the ease of use and installation. Got the bottom kit due to the starter button being close.

Great addition to the bike

Easy to install and keeps the bike at the EXACT same RPM as set.

Great for long days in the saddle

Once you first set up the Atlas it can be a little finicky to get the correct tension set. Too tight and it will lock or retard the movement of the throttle from the free roll movement, and a little too loose it won't remain in position or serve it's purpose. But once you've got it set up just right it males for an excellent addition for those long trips. Very easy to instinctively activate and deactivate by muscle memory.
