ATLAS Throttle Lock
The ATLAS Throttle Lock is the most "universal" and intuitive throttle lock ever made. Designed by motorcyclists for motorcyclists. It will be the last throttle lock you’ll ever need to buy.
The ATLAS Throttle Lock is made of hardened stainless steel and will last the life of your motorcycle.
So, what is this black chunk of metal? Well, it’s a mechanical cruise control, more commonly known as a throttle lock. A “throttle Lock” can be a little misleading because this product doesn’t actually “lock” the throttle of your motorcycle. When it’s engaged it simply holds your throttle in any position you leave it in. When you want to adjust your speed, simply rotate the throttle like normal. It uses pressure and friction to prevent the throttle from rotating freely.
Well, how does it work? The ATLAS is clamped to the plastic throttle tube, between your rubber grip flange and the throttle housing. The ATLAS Throttle Lock has two buttons, one to engage the unit the other to disengage the unit.
You can override the ATLAS at any time. When you have the ATLAS Throttle Lock engaged you can increase or decrease your speed by simply twisting the throttle as you ride.
One of our customers writes, "No Throttle Lock will ever be as good as a true cruise control. None will ever hold a steady speed on hilly roads. But for what a Throttle Lock does, the Atlas does it best."
The ATLAS Throttle Lock comes in two configurations. A Top Kit and a Bottom Kit. Both units work exactly the same, the only difference is where it mounts on the throttle tube. To see which unit is best for your motorcycle please CLICK HERE.
Note - the list is extensive but if your bike model or year is not listed, before you buy, please call or email us so we can check whether or not this unit will fit your particular model. We will only accept returns if the item is unused and in its original packaging. Postage and restocking will be charged if we have to resend.
Installation is dead simple. The ATLAS Throttle Lock bolts straight on to your throttle tube. The unit's ratcheting mechanism will clamp the ATLAS to any throttle tube diameter, from 7/8” to 1-1/4”. CLICK HERE to view the installation instructions.
For Heated Grips
On bikes with OEM heated grips that have a hidden wire in the throttle tube, the heated grip is usually completely integrated into the tube in some way, not just glued. So if you need to create more room, you can pull on the grip flange a bit to create the space, but be very careful or you might damage some part of the heating element or wire inside. This is true even of aftermarket heated grips with a wire coming off the grip flange, but hidden wire heated grips with their integrated tube setup need extra care.
What's included with the Kit?
Your kit comes with everything you need to mount the ATLAS on many different motorcycles.

So far I’ve only tried it on one ride. But it was great to be able to take my throttle hand off and shake out the vibration numbness. I’ve got a 5 day ride coming up and I’m looking very forward to having it and being able to rest my right hand whenever I need to. The atlas lock is easy to set up and easy to use. It looks good on my bike. The on/off switches are similar to any other standard switches on the bike, and no reaching or manoeuvring is required to use it.
It arrived at my residence today Monday 25th January all in one piece.
I am looking forward to installing it on my Can Am Spyder at my earliest convenience.
I'm sure it will be a good product after all the comments I have read about the throttle lock.
Couldn't be happier with the atlas
am in the middle of a 4k trip
Makes touring so much easier
