Yamaha Motorcycles - ATLAS Throttle Lock

Sale price Price $145.00 Regular price

Why didn’t Yamaha include cruise control as a standard option for the Super Ténéré, the FJ-09 and the other motorcycles in their lineup? Because they wanted you to buy an ATLAS! Ok, so maybe that's not what they were thinking – but does it really matter? The truth is, we could all use a break every once in a while regardless of how long the ride is. The ATLAS will work perfectly with your Yamaha motorcycle and give you immediate satisfaction. We guarantee it!

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.

Many modern Yamaha models feature a black plastic ring between the throttle housing and grip flange that is designed to prevent the grip flange from dragging on the throttle housing. Most bikes will be able to use the ATLAS with this ring in place, but some may not have enough room to mount the ATLAS without first removing the plastic ring. To install the ATLAS correctly with the plastic ring in place, the ring must be on the grip flange side.

1. For bikes with OEM heated grips with the wire integrated into the throttle cable housing, take note of the orientation of the bulged section of the housing where the heated grip wire comes out. If bulge is on top, order Bottom Kit. If bulge is on bottom, order Top Kit. If unsure or for questions regarding fitment please email detailed pictures to info@atlasthrottlelock.com.

2. Riders check tank clearance on their specific bike. If clearance is not enough, use Top Kit instead.

3. The chrome flange must be pulled back to mount the ATLAS.

4. Throttle cable bracket can interfere with Bottom Kit on some bikes. Example: 2012 1900cc SCL Raider needs Top Kit due to known throttle cable bracket interference. If unsure, recommend Top Kit to be safe.

5. Top Kit also compatible, but may interfere with access to killswitch. Unless using a heated grip with a wire on the bottom, Top Kit is recommended.

6. The ATLAS does not fit on the Virago XV1100 if this model has the OEM heated grips. However, if your Virago XV1100 has aftermarket heated grips, the Top Kit will work.

7. Must roll back rubber grip flange and mount the ATLAS on the large diameter plastic flange.

Graham Skilton
Great product

Graeme Richards
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...

Giuseppe Gentile
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.

Robert Woodsom
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.

Pete Wilkinson
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.

Basil S.
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.

Aric Abel
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

Randall Wellman
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!
