Quick way to adjust the cruiser control

Postby cruiser1800 » Tue Feb 09, 2016 11:00 am



I thought a while back on some website there was an article on a way to adjust the cruise control without going through the whole process of stripping the complete top off of the bike, like when you go into the air cleaner area. I thought I saved it to My Documents, but I guess not.

I don't know what site I was in at the time, but does anyone know? I know someone made a video on how to cheat and do it fast and easy, but that article was back in 2005.

Thanks

curious as to if the 1500 set up is the same. my 88 never had any lag but my 97 does and it's pretty bad
I have learned to just hold the throttle after hitting the set button for about 5 sec. before letting off for the cruise to take over
I just figured it meant it was time to replace my cruise and sub filters

I have that one, but unless I am missing something, it looks like it must be for an older bike, because the it doesn't get me to the adjuster on my 06, it is still buried under a plastic cover. I am late doing all of my maintenances, do to recovering from last years bike accident, so I put it back together, until I am ready to pull all the crap off the top to get to the air cleaner or I can find the easy way to adjust the cruise control, if there is one.

Thanks
