Throttlemeister Weights

I am considering purchasing a throttle lock for my bike and was wondering what you chose for the weight of your bar ends. Throttlemeister gives an option when you purchase.... anyone have a preference and a reason? Or should I go with someone other than Throttle meister? Thanks!

The Wunderlich superbike handlebar conversion and throttle locks were on my bike from the start, installed by the dealer. I did not like the aluminum throttle lock for several reasons, but the technical problem was there was no vibration damping from the lightweight bar ends. I went to the Kaoko lock and a stock bar end for the left side and I'm very happy. The color is right and the mirrors work better.

Dunno, but the Heavy Duty (heavier model) Throttle-M's are being group-buyied by the S1000RR group to quench some vibes off the S model. The S doesn't vibe much at the inner portion of the grip, but at the ends it does.

I have some on order and may be here in a week or two. I'll let you know if they quench the vibes much if that's want you want them for.

I'm looking to replace the ugly - but working - CrampBuster thing on the S grip since you cannot shake your right hand out without the thing tossing you over the front end when you let go of the grip. Maybe the T-M will fill the ticket and quench some vibes too?

i purchased my bike used and it had the TM on it. i don't know what weight they are, but i don't have any vibration in the bar ends. the TM for holding the throttle at a rpm, it's ok, but not of much use to me. i've tried it a few times and i live in a pretty rolling area of terrain, i'm weird about holding a steady speed...maybe some would say anal. nothing other than driving steady in the left passing lane, erks me more than following someone that cannot hold a steady speed, anyway, off on a tangent, the things work especially if you live someplace flat or just want to annoy goofs like me
