KTM Motorcycles - ATLAS Throttle Lock
Do you bleed orange? We do too, so it’s with great pleasure that we can say that the ATLAS Throttle Lock works with almost every KTM out there. With or without hand guards, heated grips, plastic or metal throttle tubes – it doesn’t phase the ATLAS.
Fun Fact: The ATLAS was designed while traveling around the world two-up on a 640 Adventure.
Conclusion: You can trust that the ATLAS will give you what you need - comfort, control and relief - in a strong, resilient, discrete device.

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.

1. The ATLAS is not recommended for the 790 series when using the OEM throttle tube. Customers will need to change to an aftermarket throttle tube, such as G2 aluminum tubes. The OEM throttle tube is considered to be incompatible. Additionally, there is a lip at the seam of the throttle housing on the side facing the rider. It is recommended to loosen the mounting bolts for the throttle housing and square up the seam before mounting the ATLAS. G2 aluminum tubes Model: 4 stroke ALL MODELS ('17-'21).
Product works as advertised. I had simple cam-lock, thumb flip style mechanisms on my bikes in the 80’s before I got my first bike with cruise control. Cheap. Simple. Easy. Effective. That’s what I was looking for. Don’t know if they would work with the new throttles anyway. This one’s not cheap...but neither is it plastic and disposable. It’s a good and sturdy little piece of kit and I’m extremely happy with it. Much easier to deal with than the twisty mechanisms on the end of your bar which are WAY out of place on a bike that may go down anyway. Well done, guys.
2016 superduke 1290SE Works awesome fits on throttle excellent. It doesn’t take up space for your hand to grip throttle.
nice addition to my ktm 1090. works well for locking in the throttle position.
Quick and easy installation with YouTube videos to help if needed. Easy to engage and disengage. Works great on my bike!
As the saying goes, "best thing since sliced bread", great piece of kit, I have tried the others, and after fitting the Atlas to the KTM, no more hand cramps on long trips, easy installation, easy operation, what could be better, so good in fact I am thinking on getting another for my Honda,
