Can-Am Motorcycles - ATLAS Throttle Lock
The Can-Am Spyder was designed for touring with comfort and ease. But wait, your Spyder doesn't have cruise control? Thankfully the ATLAS Throttle Lock was designed with the same goals. The ATLAS makes those long rides more enjoyable and comfortable by allowing you the freedom of your right hand whenever you need it, whether you need to shake some blood back into your hand and release your frozen claw from the throttle or you simply want to zip up your jacket. Allow the ATLAS to take some pressure off the ride.

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.
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
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.

Do you have another type of motorcycle? The ATLAS Throttle Lock will work on that too! Click on one of the brands below to learn more.
1. The lower portion of the throttle housing has a sharp seam that will wear the friction pad when using a Bottom Kit. Riders can loosen the screws for the throttle housing halves and make the seam flush before tightening the screws again. Use of a Top Kit does not require this to be done.
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!
Great fit and finish, fast response on ADVRIDER.com, fast shipping. Highly recommended. Good backstory: first heard about this on Adventure Rider Radio. cheers!
My Atlas Throttle Lock works as advertised. Great for long rides and makes a big difference on the right hand from going to sleep.
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.
I have yet to use it on a long trip, however very easy to fit, looks great on the Spyder, looks as if it is well built, thank you for the quick delivery. - Wayne
Very easy to install and easy to use, much better than the knurled lock I was previously using.
Easy to install, great product. See my review here:
Suzuki Motorcycles - ATLAS Throttle Lock
Easy to install and keeps the bike at the EXACT same RPM as set.
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.
