BMW Motorcycles - ATLAS Throttle Lock

Sale price Price $145.00 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.

Throttle lock for the 2022 KLR 650

Awesome little device. Just finished my 4th round Australia motor bike trip and setting up a new bike for the next trip. This throttle lock will be great for the long haul sections across the top of Australia. Thanks for your help...

Comodo e facile da montare

L’ho montato in 5 minuti e funziona perfettamente, la fattura mi sembra molto buona ma bisognerà vedere nel tempo cosa succede.

Great Product - Easier to use than the competition...

I have used the twist throttle locks and even a thumb lock style unit that take up some of your grip space. This unit take up no space on your grip and is very solid, this is the best lock I have tried. It does cost more but it is worth it.

Really good

Quick to fit easy to operate and very effective.
It took only a matter of minutes to fit, and works brilliantly. I can certainly recommend this product as a retro-fit cruise control.

Atlas throttle lock

Great little unit to have. Gives my wrists a chance to relax on those long freeway rides. Small and east to use.

Very good product

I am extremely happy with the design, ergonomics, and overall quality of this product. If you have and injected bike, then you know that the throttle can sometimes be very sensitive to road bumps. This product stabilizes your twist tube. My only issue, and it is a very minor one, is that trying to find the proper friction pad and exact location to mount it can be a bit tricky. On mine, I had to adjust the clocking several times to find the sweet spot, but once I found it, it was all the difference in the world. Thank you Atlas, you now have a customer for life

Quality is worth the price

This is a solidly built instrument that works great compared to the other types of locks I've used in the past. It can be adjusted in very small increments. If you're on the fence because of the cost...just get it already!
