ATLAS Throttle Lock
Easy installation, especially with the bike-specific examples provided on the website. After six months and 4,000 miles of riding, I have had to re-adjust the tension a few times - somehow the clamp loosened, preventing the device from maintaining enough friction to hold the throttle in place. Also, when riding with my right hand place full inboard on the throttle, the device rubs against my thumb; this occurs when riding offroad, at slower speeds with the lock disengaged. These are minor issues, though, in my opinion. Excellent build quality and durability. Best throttle lock I've found. I'd buy it again.
It's a great Idea but I'm having to make some modifications to make it work for my bike. when I get done it's gonna be great. ATL is a very well made product.
Works great. Simple install, easy to set / unset.
Hello, thank you for the prompt order filling, I got it in just a few days. the throttle lock is a very sturdy, and well made device that fit my bike perfectly, however, it is very stiff to use, even with the smallest pad. hopefully, it will ease up with more use. thanks again...Mark D Salisbury
Good quality product,easy to install.
It works reliably.I'm very satisfied.
It's a great, well designed product, installation was easy. In practice it has some minor issues but those are universal to the product category.
Fits and works seems to be well made and versatile pleased with the very easy install
Quite simply the only product that has worked for me - and I have tried most of the obvious alternatives. David was really helpful in assessing whether it would fit (it does with minimal adaptation) and it does hold the throttle to give your hand a break! Nicely built. Does not get 5 stars because it is (too) expensive - especially when you consider the extra value added taxation for importation into the UK.
Easy installation and operation, especially the quick release.
I live in Yucatan Mexico with mostly flat straight roads which requires holding the throttle open for long periods of time. My hands were frequently cramping up until I read about the Atlas throttle control. It has exceeded my expectations totally. Installation and final setup was a breeze. David went out of his way to overnight the package to a buddy who was leaving to return here the next day. Buy it...you won't regret it!!!
The Atlas Throttle lock is a well made piece of equipment for a motorcycle, it will definitely help to relieve throttle hand fatigue. It works well so far in the limited miles I've used it.
I primarily use my dual sport for commuting and weekend warrior dirt work. However I also solo-camp on my bike and often it requires me to ride longer distances for longer periods of time. The Atlas throttle lock has taken the edge off those those longer paved stretches. It was easy to install, easy to adjust, easy to operate while riding and can take it to another bike if I want. The quality is high and I feel it was worth the money thus I highly recommend it to anyone who wants to bring the love back to their not-so-tour-friendly dual sport.
Excellent construction -It's very close to my turn signal indicator button it will take a little getting use too.
Was a little difficult getting enough space between the grip and flange. This is the new "throttle by wire" BMW just came out with on this bike. I also have handguards as well.
**Caution - Keep checking the throttle movement as you tighten the screw. Overtighten and the throttle will drag or barely move!
Worked great until I installed Honda OEM heated grips. Now the throttle lock doesn't fit.
Installation was super simple and took about 5 minutes. The design and aesthetic are really good. The throttle lock takes up virtually no room on the throttle grip. Only complaints are the cost, the unit seems well made but the price is a bit ridiculous for what it is. I would think the materials and design of this would be under $100.
The installation was a breeze! It was so easy I thought I might have been doing something wrong. A high quality well engineered product. Highly recommended!
A little tricky to install as there was barely room for it. Also a fine line between too tight and not tight enough. Blocks access to start button but that's not a real big deal.
Works well enough. Setting it takes some getting used to. Takes a lot of thumb pressure to set it which makes it hard to maintain the setting you want while setting. it. Nice to be able to rest the right hand occasionally on longer rides.
Aloha Atlas ,
I am enjoying the Atlas throttle lock . I did encounter a slight delay that was quickly rectified they viewing videos of installation due to my bike having Ktm heated grips . Once I removed the small section of strink tube used to keep the element wire curved all was well & fully functioning . I enjoyed using it fir the first time on a 95 mile road ride to visit a friend south of me . Would highly recommend getting one of these on ur bikes if your enjoying long trips . This will give your right arm a needed break on those long stretches of road where a speed limit is posted .
Installation was easy enough. Button could be easier to push
Easy installation. Throttle Lock interferes with the turn signal switch when off the throttle when riding in town. Your thumb has to reach around it to push the turn signal. Moving the throttle lock out of the way makes it difficult to engage because the lock button is farther away. You just have to get used to maneuvering your thumb around it. If it wasn't for that it would be perfect.
Quick installation. Easy to use.
Ok to install had to make some adjustments with my grips because of oxford heaters but seems to work well
Excellent product and service. Communication all the way through the purchase and delivery phase. The Atlas makes it much easier for me to drive long distances. Great Product!
Its great so far. Install was easy. The gap is a hair tight but functional. Looking forward to using it. I will be doing a full review on my YouTube channel on it this week!
The throttle lock is very well made, easy to install and works great. Looking forward to years of trouble free service.
Love it! Quick and easy to install, intuitive to use.
Rode home from the BMWMOA Rally in Buffalo in July. Worked great from the first time I used it on the road. It is a great addition to my riding capabilities. bmw2003gs.
Fits perfect on my throttle, very easy to install and works as advertised! Very satisfied with it.
Very easy to install. Re-installed as the instructions say to use the thickest friction pad that fits. It did but put the device at an angle. Selected one that leaves the lock vertical. A bit of effort to engage the lock, but I understand it loosens up some with use. Very easy and happy with it overall, very well made.
Looks and feels solid, very happy with my purchase. It was really easy to install, I have not tried it yet but it seems to be in my opinion the only way to go for an aftermarket throttle lock..
Great products, works as intended and fits well and not really hard to do or is not too intrusive. A great product
This is my second lock, and I love it! Easy to install, easy to use, and I would recommend it to anyone.
I have had the Atlas on the bike for about a month. Really like it better than the many others I have owned. I had to rotate the switch block a few degrees clockwise to get the heated grip wires to not interfere. No problem! I would buy it again.
Good quality product.
Feels well made and reliable.
I had to make a few adjustments compared to the manual.
Realy happy with the end result.
Parfait très bon produit
Fits great and works great! I love it!!! I like the way that it is thumb controlled and getting it adjusted for your thumb correctly make a big difference...
Just got back from a 2-1/2 day/ 1600 mile trip, of which about 1/2 were highway. Definitely a great add on and made the trip more enjoyable. Thanks for a great product!!!
I haven't really had too much time to test this on the road yet, but I can comment on the install. For my Highball there was just not enough room between the grip and the throttle housing. Per the universal instructions on the site I had to trim material off my grip to make it work. It took a few minutes to take the throttle tube off and use a box cutter to slice off about a quarters thickness off the grip. I ended using the larger clamp arm. I installed the smallest friction pad but I feel the need to change it out to the medium at least to get a solid grip on the throttle housing. One other problem was that the atlas would make contact with brake lever whenever I rolled on the throttle. I was able to adjust the brake lever to the farthest setting to clear the conflict. I might be able to adjust the atlas so I can move the brake lever back to its original position, but I haven't had time to make any real adjustments yet.
Overall it looks factory and is almost impossible to tell I had to cut the grip. Probably took me 30 minutes for the whole project. So far I think it is a good product that feels like it will last.
Just back from 8,000 km trip. It works as advertised. I wished for more for a cruise control going up and down mountains on the interstate. Best not to put it on in lower gears. Well built, reliable, and durable. Had to play with couple of mounting settings to get it just right. The adjustments were super simple. Works exactly as advertised. Deserves 5 stars. Dave was great answering questions when we bought it at BMWOA rally in Hamburg.
Perfect combination! easy to install....easy to use....much easier to use than other throttle locks I've tried.
Living in the mountains of Vermont where there are no straight roads I don't use it to often but when I do it is the best throttle lock that I have used. I have tried at least a half dozen others and there is no doubt it's the best.

It's a little stiff but works great!
The Atlas rocks! 15 minute install on my F650GS twin with heated grips. No need to take off barkbusters, takes up no grip space, and disengages easily and is truly disengaged! Thanks David!
What a great product. Along side of fog lights, the most important add on piece attached. It is a sturdy, Made in USA, cramp buster! Easy to install, and a breeze to use. I recommend to all my BMW friends. As an added value, you have piece of mind that you are purchasing the Atlas from wonderful young entrepreneurs!
I just wrote a review and stated I wasn't pleased. I just tried to adjust it one more time. I desided it has to be the grip it sets bake from the throttle tube to far. When I get home from our trip I'll try a new set of grips.
Works well, installation was very easy
I am a huge fan of your throttle lock! Great design and great ease of use! So easy to engage and disengage the throttle lock with the use of your right thumb! Love it!!!
Thank you so so much for supporting the GS Giants and the ROCKMOR Rally! The individual that won the ATLAS Throttle Lock was very excited!
Very easy to install. Easy to use. I guess its just a matter of getting used to. Using it but once you use it three or four times and trust that you can unlock with the touch of a button. Its a great product
Absolutely love the cruise control I would recommend it to anyone installation was very easy
easy to fit,but probably easier without heated grips.
Install was super easy, using it is a breeze. I love that the button is always the same movement, whether I'm going 50 or 80. Dust and rain haven't seemed to cause any degradation.
Good! so easily long riding
This is exactly what David said! Wow, what a nice piece of hardware! Easy to install and works like a charm. Well done sir!
Easy install-once I fully read instructions! Love it now,won't ride without!
Compact, uncomplcated, practical, and robust design, it's built to last and easy to operate.
Easy installation, works as advertised, very well. Does have some sharp edges, so wear gloves or be very careful.
With Oxford heated grips install is tricky, but the Atlas works fantastic.
Love it! finally got the bike back from the shop. I did have an issue (more Moto Guzzi issue)...apparently on the Moto Guzzi there is a plastic hub under the grip that extends out and under the controller (shut off switch and starter switch). The guy at the shop trimmed this up for me and was able to install. Not something I would have been comfortable doing. But everything works great. Have to admit...also that I rode the bike back from the shop (about an hour) and I didn't really practice using the throttle lock like I should have. So it was a little tricky getting it to go off..Anyway like I said great product and very happy. This is built tough and should give me many years of use!!!
Nice piece of kit. It was very easy to install although I did have some fitment issues but David was very quick to respond with assistance. Very pleased with the Atlas!
The install was very easy and I did not need to make any modifications to my bike.
The ATLAS is great. I installed it before riding from Denver, CO to Tampa, FL and back and loved the ease with which I could lock my throttle to give my hand a break! The only negative thing that stuck out to me was getting used reaching around my ATLAS to reach the right turn indicator button. After a couple hundred miles, though, I've adjusted and no longer notice the ATLAS. Thanks for making a great product!
Simple install, no modifications needed. Instant classic, I have driven about 4000 km with the throttle lock with no issues. No experience with other similar products, but I have no reason to test them since this one is so good.
It was extremely easy to install! I did have to roll back my grip a hair to get it set-up but, it works flawlessly.
The only issue I had was after initial install, the Atlas had trouble holding consistently at freeway speeds. I think the adhesive grip pads need to break in a little because it only did that for a few weeks. Now, it locks in without issue. I road with this throttle lock for 1800 miles through Baja Mexico and it kept me from cramping and was easy to lock/unlock without compromising my grip on the throttle.
Worth the money for sure
Works great just adjust the tape to fix comfort resistance.
Works great. Super easy install.
Works great! Takes some mental training to get comfortable with activation/deactivation.
It's stupid simple ...like me!
Atlas throttle lock was easy to order, easier to install, and was an "arm-saver" on my 1st tour on this bike! I love the ability to adjust the throttle without disengaging the lock! Great materials, great design, thank you Atlas
Other that being a little difficult to engage, I am enjoying my throttle lock. As advertised, it is very easy to disengage. Installation was accomplished without any difficulties, just using the enclosed instructions.
I watched the installation video before I received the control, so when I received it I would be ready to go. I was able to install the control in less than 5 minutes when I did get it. I took the bike around the block and then out on I-5 to finish the installation by adjusting where I wanted the button to be at highway speeds. After having another problematic brand for the last few years, I was extremely pleased with how easy it was to install and configure the Atlas. This control is well build and conceptually simple in design, which is what makes it so very good. I like that the control does not get in the way of anything else on the handlebar. I have hand guards and reviewing other products there was always a got-you regarding the fitting of other controls. The control does not take away any room on the grip, where my old control took up a chunk of the grip. I am leaving for a 4,000 mile trip in a couple of weeks and this control will really help me out. I did a coast-to-coast ride last summer and half way across the country I ripped my old control off the bike because it kept on going out of adjustment and driving me nuts. Congratulations on a brilliant design and excellent product execution.
Very good product. Well machined. I'm curious to see how it'll hold up over time and am wondering if the little pads will remain effective. I garage my bike so exposure to the elements is not too harsh or prolonged. But somehow for a somewhat expensive part to rely on the little adhesive pads has me a bit skeptical. Still, it's delivered on it promise!
