Throttlemeister cruise control on 2009 CBR 1000RR

Throttlemeister cruise control on 2009 CBR 1000RR

The Throttlemeister CC comes with everything you need for a perfect installation. If you've got yourself a decent set of tools and don't mind working on your bike, this thing will go on in about an hour and you'll be sitting pretty. It's a reverse thread, which makes learning it feel natural because the TM locks the gas by turning the bar end weight in the same direction as when you give it the gas. And it releases in the opposite way. I had to cut the end safety wire on my ProGrip 714 (throttle side) so I could roll it back to install the friction collar, but aside from that it went pretty much as planned. The parts fit my 2009 CBR 1000RR perfectly.

The TM is a step up from the Vista Cruiser ones I have been using forever. I haven't had great success with the Vista on the CBR 1000, so I plunked down the substantial cash for the TM, and I am happy to say it was worth it. Prolly cost like a hondo fifty, or thereabouts.

The instructions were a little lacking. I can see now why there's no easy link to the directions on the TM website. Good thing there's illustrations, cause the text is pretty much non-existent when it comes to installing the main piece. There's no description of how to actually insert their new bar weight. I thought I was going to have to pound it in, but just pressing was enough to get it to go. This would certainly not be the case with the factory one I had just removed. The OEM piece that I needed to use the puller tool on was not inserted at the factory with mere hand pressure, that's for sure. So that makes me wonder, will the business end of the Throttlemeister stay put over time? Hmmmm... can't say. I only just installed it a few hours ago.

But I did take the CBR for a couple of short spins, and after a very brief period of fumbling, I already kind of have the feel for it. It holds the throttle dead solid exactly where I want it, and moves without releasing if I need to make a change. If you look you can see the gap where the Vista was. The Vista, when tightened to work effectively, never did not allow the total freedom of movement the Tmeister does when disengaged. This is a well made product.

It adds to the look cool too. I went for the milled.

I used a set of these on my '06 GSXR1000 several times when I've gone a a few road trips. It works as promised, although the setup does take a bit of time. Very nicely machined, too. They are a bit on the weighty side, and while this may aid in soaking up the vibrations, you can feel the way that they slow down quick transitions while using bar inputs.

Charlie, We don't want tuna with good taste. We want tuna that tastes good, smells good and puts out.

HardCore like the look! Did you install the Heavy version or the shorter Standard version? I am trying to decide which one to go with...

I love them on 08. Short milled version. Think I may have another set stored somewhere in my garage.

I did the standard ones. And yes, they are heavy, but I can't say I agree w/the comment they slow down steering inputs. };-p

Maybe that guy has the "Spidey Sense". Now, I think those OEM alloy wheels are definitely slowing down steering inputs, which is why I write emails to BST once a year telling them how I LOVE their product, hoping they'll say one day, Yo guy, that's a really nice email. And it just so happens we're looking for a rider in your latitude to test a new set for us ...

Anyway, now that I have thousands of miles on the T-Meister, I really do love it and would never go back to the Vista. Vista was great on two CBRs before this, but it sucked on the '09 1000RR. T-Meister is the bomb.

I have a TM but have not put it on yet. I also have a set of Apex Bars. I hope to get a new seat soon. I will be set for long rides for sure.

Maybe I do. But, whatever floats ya boat man.

There is a definite weight difference between the stock bar end weights and the TM's...think about that swinging around on the ends of your bars.

Just sayin'.

I have a new '12 CBR and I installed the "regular" Tmeister, which is what they call for, not the large ones. This is my third or fourth Tmeister, it has become one of the first things I install an any bike I get.

I installed a standard length set of black on black milled ThrottleMeister units on my new-to-me 2008 CBR1000rr. Installation was very simple and the instructions got me through fine. Strangely I got it adjusted perfectly almost immediately. One thing that really helped me was my buddy's recommendation to use an air nozzle on my air hose to 'inflate' the ProGrip and push it back so it stopped rubbing the TM. Worked perfectly to reposition it. Thanks jleosnow! My TM looks great and is working well for me.
