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.

1. Models with factory heated grips, please reference our install video for a demonstration on how to mount the ATLAS. The Top Kit is required on this model due to a bump out on the bottom of the throttle housing that prevents the Bottom Kit from being used. Bottom Kit may function on models without heated grips.

2. Minor modification needed on the plastic throttle tube for these years.

3. Some bikes of this model may have excess rubber from the grip flange in between the throttle housing and flange, and may require some of the excess rubber to be trimmed to create the needed space for the ATLAS to mount.

4. Vulcans with the black plastic throttle housing can choose either the Top Kit or Bottom Kit. Vulcans with the chrome throttle housing should order the Top Kit. Models with chrome throttle housings use different throttle cable setups than the black plastic housings. Chrome housings with a bump section from the throttle cable bracket that protrudes towards the grip must be used with a Top Kit. Chrome housings without this bump section may use the Bottom Kit.

5. Some bikes may be able to use the Bottom Kit. Riders should check their individual bike for proper fuel tank clearance per outlines above before ordering a Bottom Kit. If there is not enough clearance please order the Top Kit as suggested.

Easy to fit

Great product, easy to fit. Slight loss of acceleration on uneven roads but this is expected. Overall awesome product!!

Hands down, best throttle lock on the market!!

Fast shipping, easy to install and quality build!!
I applaud the engineering that went into this lock, functional in all aspects!!
We all invest a lot into our motorcycles… invest in this throttle lock, you won't be sorry or disappointed.

So far so good.

I’ve recently installed the throttle lock on my Versys. The build quality is solid and installation was easy. I haven’t had a chance to put it to use due to the bitter cold. I hope to give it a test run this weekend.

Atlas throttle lock for 2009 Kawasaki 500 Vulcan

Great product. Easy to install. No more sleepy hand.


Install is fairly simple just need to work the application around the handle bar. Pretty much works as advertised. I’m happy to have one. Yes it’s pricey but I don’t regrets it on long rides.
