The Kaoko affords you INSTANT throttle response unlike an electronic cruise which provides real safety benefits for you. (And no, I am not tailgating or too close)
Kaoko eliminates the nasty snapping shut of the throttle and thus eliminates any abrupt jolts to you and your passenger. You just add a bit of friction with a slight turn of the Kaoko knob, and the throttle will become deliciously smooth to use. You instantly set it with just a slight gentle movement of your hand, it is that easy!
You also can set the friction point by just grasping the throttle as usual but keep your grip slightly 'over hanging' on the castellated Kaoko knob. As you increase throttle, your grip also increases the friction so the you have 'automatically' set Kaoko into action and the throttle will stay put. The knob has a reverse thread so it works in concert with the throttle action, At any time, the Kaoko can be INSTANTLY overcome by closing down the throttle. It is totally safe. Installation is easy. I highly recommend it. (Posted on 5/23/13)
