Harley Davidson Motorcycles - ATLAS Throttle Lock
Everything on your Harley was designed to cruise on the most beautiful roads in America… everything except for the throttle thumb screw. Don’t use that janky, antiquated “throttle lock” while flying down the road at 75mph. Trash that thing and use the ATLAS Throttle Lock instead. You’ll thank yourself every time you use it. Did you know that the plastic thumb screw was originally meant to help warm up the old carbureted Harleys?
The ATLAS Throttle Lock works perfectly on your Harley, we guarantee it. The black oxide coated stainless steel lends itself to the clean look of your Harley Davidson motorcycle. If you’re planning on leading a group ride to Sturgis, be sure to have an ATLAS to maintain a steady pace for the other riders. They will thank you.

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 (1/16" SAE)
- 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.
