Kaoko Throttle Lock, anyone got one?

I have one on my V-Strom and would like one on my GSXS. Kaoko's web site doesn't list one specifically for it but I suspect one will fit that is advertised for another model.

Anyone know which one will work?

Thx...

I am working with Twisted Throttle to identify a fit. I gave them the dimensions of my bars and they believe the have a match but need to pull it from from the warehouse to measure and confirm. They did this for me a few years back on a another un-listed bike it and worked perfectly. I will share as soon as I hear!

I sent my bar and grip measurements to Kaoko and they confirmed that their model SUZ100 will fit the GSX-S bars. I ordered one and it fits and works just fine. Go for it!

No use here in the uk our roads have too many twistie bits in them ;-)

Certain people are like slinky's, no apparent use but always bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs

Not bad. Got it for about the same thing via RevZilla. $150 - $10 in RZ bucks (or whatever they're called) and free shipping. Makes more sense being here on the east coast (Philly -> DC usually means 2 days for delivery).

The Twisted Package arrived today and the KAOKO slipped right in.

When removing the stock bar weights loosen the Philips Screw about 6 turns and wiggle the assembly out. If you back the screw all of the way out you will leave the stock rubber compression bushing 3 inches inside your handlebar tube.

Here are a couple of pics:
