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. Recommend that riders check their individual bike for proper clearance between the fuel tank and plastic throttle tube at full right turn before ordering the Bottom Kit. Top Kit is ok on all Thunderbird models.
Nice, well designed universal throttle lock assy with what appears to be constructed of high quality black-colored stainless steel in an excellent small footprint design. Looks and works awesome on my 1970 Triumph 650 Bonneville! The Atlas Throttle Lock is a bit pricey but now I kinda see why...Oh how I could've used this great (much needed to me) accessory on my bike I restored almost 30yrs ago, especially since this Atlas Throttle Lock really assists when first starting a cold engine with no choke setup on the aftermarket performance carburetors, as I no longer have to stand there holding the throttle up until the engine warms up. That in itself is well-worth the cost! Absolutely love the fit, finish and functionality of this additional accessory to my 'ole Triumph and now wouldn't be without it. I highly recommend one!
Fits brill well made. Not tested yet
This did not disappoint. Well engineered and worth the money.
Fairly easy to install and it works well, if a bit expensive. Of course it's built with top materials. I'm happy.
I recently rode from vegas to Venice beach and back in the hot sun and fly throttle lock really reduce fatigue and held steady at whatever speed I engaged the lock on. Highly recommend
