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.

  • 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.

Glad I Waited!

I've had another throttle lock in mind for my '15 F800GSA for a few years now, but never picked it up. I heard David and Heidi's story on ARR and the Atlas sounded like a much better engineered product.

We visited their booth at the MOA rally in TN in June and after a few questions and playing with the display models, bought one. I finally got a chance to install it recently (really straightforward) and take it out for a test ride. Verdict? Love it!! It works exactly as I'd hoped and feels very solid. It grabs and does not move (unless you increase/decrease throttle on purpose, of course). A simple button push and it instantly releases.

Thanks, you two! My wife and I really enjoyed meeting you and wish you continued success!

ATLAS Throttle Lock on BMW R nineT

Fantastic product. Feel solid and well made. It was a little tricky to get it installed correctly but when I did it works perfectly. It's really great to be able to let go of the bar from time to time without a decrease in speed. A highly recommend accessory to any rider.

Great Addition

This Atlas Throttle Lock is a great addition to my bike. Made well, easy to use. I have had others but like this one because of ease of use. The other ones are on the end of the handlebars and are hard to turn on and get to stay. Atlas is easy to operate and can increase/decrease speed when locked.

very quick delivery

It works as expected. I would certainly recommend it.
