Indian Motorcycles - ATLAS Throttle Lock
Your Indian was built to cruise across America, so why didn’t they put cruise control on your Scout? Hmm. Well, we’ve solved your problem! The ATLAS Throttle Lock will easily mount to your throttle tube in about 5 minutes. You don’t need to remove anything to install the ATLAS Throttle Lock. Unlike adding exhaust or different luggage to your Indian, the ATLAS will actually add functionality you can immediately appreciate. You will be smiling every time you use your ATLAS on those open stretches of road on your next 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.

Very well made. Would have been helpful to know where to place the rachet for the scout...otherwise a great part
Only negative I have found is it takes a lot of force on the button to activate the throttle lock. The disengage button is fine as you would expect with this design. I’m wondering if a longer arm on the activation button might lessen the force needed to lock the throttle? Other than that, it works great and was easy to install.
Excellent installation instructions - works as advertised - 1st long ride on my Indian Scout was great with the throttle lock!
I really like it, works great.
Great build quality and works very well.
Some lateral movement left to right, I used a spacer between it and the throttle tube to tighten the gap.
