is there a way to adjust the grep of the mechanical cruise control on a 84 1200I? it engages but slowly releases slowing the bike down.

The aftermarket throttle lock on my GL1100 has a hex screw on the back that you can use to tighten it up. I usually have to tighten it for colder weather, and loosen it for warmer weather. The sweet spot between "not holding enough when locked" and "holding when unlocked when it shouldn't" is pretty small, so it takes me a bit to get it just right.
