NEP CC-4 Cruise Control for Suzuki

So after buying an Omni Cruise, Kaoko Cruise Control, and Atlas Throttle Lock (and not being happy with any of them), I finally bit the bullet and bought a NEP Cruise Control.

The only reason I never bought one earlier is because the dealer kept telling me they don't make one to fit the GSXS (they recommend the Vista Universal Cruise Control for the GSXS). After wasting so much money on other products, I told him I don't care, just give me one.

So the model that fit's most Suzuki's is the CC-4.

I got it to fit, and it works really well. If anyone is interested, the video is here:

Thank you, Thank you, Thank you! I've been trying to adapt a NEP to my bike for a while now. I even bought an extra throttle tube and filed off the small flanges that integrated the grip with no success, because then the NEP I had (CC3?) would not tighten enough. I have a Kaoko, and it is just a PITA! I'm going to pick up a CC4 and try to make it work. It's such a cheap, simplistically elegant solution compared to anything else.

Nice job getting it fit.

I wish Suzuki would have offered this as an optional extra, id have bought it. I'm surprised they never offered it on the f model considering they even did a touring model.

I received my NEP CC4 today and just got done slapping it on. It's a perfect fit. I had already replaced the OEM grips with a set of Pro-Grips, so I didn't need to trim anything at all. The Pro-Grips butt up against the large flange on the throttle tube and are contoured to fit perfectly. The combo looks like it was made for the bike. I'm going to leave my Kaoko on for some miles and make sure I prefer the NEP and that it continues to work solidly, but so far, so good.
BTW, I didn't have to trim the on/off lever on the NEP. There are still a few mm of clearance when at full lockout.

Hi Suzuki guy
Was wondering what issues or why you didn't like the Kaoko
I have fitted them to several bikes including my current GSXS-1000 and am really happy with it and find it easy to use
Just interested in case the Nep is maybe easier to use
Interested in your thoughts as you have tried a few different styles of throttle locks
Cheers

Well, to me, the difference is that the Kaoko needs to be adjusted properly with each application. It's not hard to do, but you still have to dial in the correct tension to actually hold the throttle at a given rpm, and if you roll the throttle off, you have to redo the tension again to get it locked.
The NEP has a hex nut that you adjust when you install it, that adjusts the tension when in the switched on position. Once adjusted, just flip the switch - it's on, flip the switch - it's off.
When the NEP is in the on position, you can still roll the throttle off if needed, or adjust you cruise speed and it stays set to the pre-adjusted tension.
I can't do that with the Kaoko.

After testing out the NEP today, I made a slight mod that made a huge improvement (to me). The NEP CC4 piece is held in place by a "U" shaped piece of plastic that fits over the top throttle cable guide. There is enough slop that when you engage the lock, the throttle position settles at a slightly lower position than when you engaged it, meaning you have to roll a little throttle on after engagement. Well, fiddling with the stting is one of the things I hated about the Kaoko. So... tonight I shimmed the "U" shaped piece with a small piece of dense foam rubber to close the tolerance to zero against the throttle cable, thereby eliminating the slop in the attachment point. Now when I lock it in position, and release the throttle, the throttle stays exactly where I set it. That's the way it worked on my previous bikes because each time it was a kluged a solution and the NEP had a solid mount with relation to the throttle cable position. Now I really like it.

It's just personal preference really. The Kaoko is a great product, but I found I always had to back off the throttle and re-apply the throttle while engaging the Kaoko in order to get it to work, which was a little annoying at 100+km/h.

The other option was to keep a steady throttle and try use my other hand to engage it. Again, not ideal. The NEP is just easier. Click the button and your done.
