Cheers for the reply pepegus, I have arthritis in my thumb joints and after a recent long trip I had severe pain in my throttle hand. I've looked at the other options and this seems the easiest to use , do you know if you use the original bar end bolt as mine is longer to go through the hand guard frame.

Many Thanks
Brian

The easiest to use is something like a Vista Cruise:




It will require you to make some mods to make it work, but once you have it set up, it's so easy to use that I use it all the time.  Even if there is traffic around, it goes on and off with a flick of your thumb, so there is no reason not to use it.
