They are easy to over power when needed. Under normal use you roll it on and off with the throttle. It is a friction fit and requires the handle bar end to be drilled out a little.
I also like the cramp busters or the Kuryakyn throttle boss.

I don't use throttle locks for long periods of time, just to stretch my hand or scratch an itch

Amazon have a few different styles you can choose from, also chrome if you want:

If you have Prime, it's free shipping. Otherwise, you have to buy at least $25 for free shipping. Pick up a battery tender for like $21 as well.
I got a Crampbuster off of eBay...shipped for 10 bucks. I love it!
And of coarse anyone who knows me would know I went and got a chrome one.

vinhtvu2 I had a ThrottleMeister on my old ZR-7S and on my Z1000 now. It's not as easy to manipulate, and I would be worry in an emergency situation. They both came with the bikes though, I rarely use them, even for long trips.

The Crampbuster though, those are life savers. For $5... Why not try it? You'll love it.

Spencer1 Have to pass myself, any sort of cruise control on a bike tends to make me nervous and since I rarely ride over 300 miles a day (less than 6 times a year) I've found the Kuryakan throttle boss from a yard sale is plenty to keep my hand comfortable.

VN750Rider/Jerry I've had 2 of those Throttlemeisters. Best money (and a lot of it) can buy. I put one on my former EX500, so I could rest my arms a bit. Also installed 1 1/2" bar risers and foam grips. Still wasn't enough. Bars just way too low.

Throttle Cruise Assist Road Report

I removed our plastic vista "cruise controls" and installed the Kuryakyn throttle lock #6285 on my VN750 and the wifes EN500 with matching bar end weights.
I used a step drill to ream the grips ends out a little.
After several trips and time to get use to it, I have to say I really like it.
You can roll it on or off with the throttle and it holds well.
