I searched the forum and could find where anyone had actually done this. The only thing my K1300S really needs is cruise; has anyone actually tried converting the cruise control from a GT to an S? Any shops that are capable of the required programming to make it work with the ECU?
Lack of CC is my only complaint about my K1300S. (and really that wouldn鈥檛 be a problem if all speed limits were in the 120-150mph range馃榿馃槵)

Years ago, there was a company that made a cruise control unit for the S. I don't know if they are still in business or, if so, still make the unit. However, the kit was incredibly expensive. Others here may have more current information. Good luck.

The exchange rate is in your favour. $1,407AUD works out to $927USD and you wont have to pay the 10% national goods and services sales tax (GST).

Yeah, last Sept I did a 3200 mi trip on my K12S, half mtns., half highway. My wrists killed me for a month. Forgot that my old Honda had a throttle lock and I hadn't put one on this bike yet.
That problem has now been resolved with the Kaoko throttle lock assembly. I used (tested) it a few times so far, not cruise control, but will suffice on highway runs.

The S/R cycles have enough torque so that speed variations with throttle friction on normal highways (not mountains or radical hills) are minimal. Small adjustments to a Throttlemeister are not a problem. What could be a problem would be an emergency stop, wet road skid, or heavy traffic.

I too have suffered from throttle hand, especially on the older K1200RS bikes with the stiff throttle spring. But for many years I have used one of these. The original Throttle Rocker, not the velcro one. Once you get used to it there is no going back. Allows you to not use a hard hand grip on the throttle. Ten dollars, not too much to risk.

I have a throttlemeister on mine. Best manual throttle lock ever made. Unfortunately they are no longer being made, the owner of the machine shop retired and sold the business. The new owner opted not to continue making them.
Anyway, I have mine adjusted so that even at full lock you can close the throttle. Most of the time I only turn it enough to take the return spring pressure off, allowing for easy adjustments to maintain speed. I can shift my hand over and disengage it while closing the trans going for the brakes. But I only use it on the interstates.
