ATLAS Throttle Lock
SWM Motorcycles - ATLAS Throttle Lock
Look who's back! SWM is a brand who, despite a relatively short history, made a name for itself in trials and enduro races in the '70s and '80s. After sitting on ice for 30 years, SWM came back in 2014 after acquiring tooling, properties and the factory from Husqvarna (!!!) after that brand was acquired by the KTM group.
Today, SWM is building affordable, stylish, and reliable motorcycles that cater to the adventure rider in all of us. Affordable, stylish, AND reliable? Sounds like SWM and the ATLAS are a match made on pavement. Clamp an ATLAS on that SuperDual and find some adventure!

Steps to determine fitment
Will the ATLAS fit my motorcycle?
Steps to determine fitment
First, is there enough room for the ATLAS? All you need is a gap of 0.1" (2.5mm) or greater between the grip and the throttle housing. That's roughly 3 bank cards thick.
You'll want the Bottom Kit…
• If there’s a heated grip wire that comes out the top half of the rubber grip flange.
• If you have more than 1.5 inches (38mm) of clearance between the inner plastic throttle tube (under the rubber grip) and the gas tank at a full right turn.
• If there's a bulge, bracket or object sticking out of the top half of the throttle housing that would interfere with the body of the ATLAS.

The ATLAS fits on most motorcycles without any issue. Some motorcycles might need minor adjustments to allow the ATLAS to fit properly.
If you don't have enough room to mount the ATLAS Throttle Lock between your grip and the throttle housing, then pull the grip flange away from the throttle housing to gain more space. View our "Steps to determine fitment" video above for an example.

Installing the ATLAS Throttle Lock
The ATLAS Throttle Lock was built for adventure and motorcycle touring.
If your throttle arm tends to go numb before your backside does 😀 then the Atlas is just what you need. Easy to fit and use. It enhances comfort, and therefore safety, by giving your arm a rest once in a while. I have been using it all summer and can highly recommend this product.
This product absolutely works as advertised. Stainless steel hardware so it helps resist rust making it a long term product. It holds the throttle with just enough pressure to shake your hands if they're numb or giving them a break for cruises.
I think some keyboard warriors will also need to understand that it doesn't "lock" the throttle. It simply holds it with enough pressure against the throttle housing (given the installation is followed correctly) so that it gives you a chance to shake off your numb hands or just giving them a quick break. You can still move the throttle freely and easily even while "locked" so there's no fear of your throttle being stuck. On real bumpy roads it will knock it loose so to speak but again, it's not designed to lock the throttle where you can't manipulate it. It's designed with safety in mind.
On the freeway I love being able to shake my hands or even being able to sit up right for a solid minute is a relief. For being a simple mechanical device, no fumbling of electronics nor wires, it's not a overly huge bulky item either. Hope this review clears up some questions.
This throttle lock is a welcome addition to my travel kit. I very much enjoy epic road trips on my Kawasaki Vulcan. The throttle lock will make long highway miles a breeze. It is so nice to not have to twist the grip for hours. Great little device!
After having experienced the pleasure of having a throttle lock on my previous bike I was SO very e cited to see the Atlas video on Facebook.
Your team was quick to respond to my question if I needed a top or bottom mount for my model. The product came innate timely matter that happened to be the day before my trip.
I left for my seven hundred mile trip with the atlas throttle lock installed and boy was I impressed. It was worth every penny
I really love this product! It’s super simple to put on and to use and it works flawlessly!!!
Best throttle lock out there.
Yamaha Motorcycles - ATLAS Throttle Lock
great device i prefer this to cruise control no messing about taking your eyes off the road one click on and one click on simple
Purchased the throttle lock for my 2022 KLR Adventure. The installation was a breeze. This throttle lock works like a champ. No more worn out throttle hand and fingers!
Have not done any riding yet (Canadian winter) but install was pretty easy with lots of resources to help out with the process. Dry runs seem to work well! If your bike doesnt have factory cruise control, this has to be the next best thing!
Easy install. Easy operation. Great product. I will say “ITS WEIRD HOLDING ON WITH YOUR LEFT HAND! ONLY”
