Throttle Rocker

Post by novatz » Sat Sep 21, 2019 7:16 pm



Am deciding to just leave the OEM heated grips on the bike rather than changing out to the ISO grips from Kuryakyn.

So now I am in need of a throttle rocker that will fit over the standard grip. Again - wandered through the accessory sites to no avail. Suggestions?

The common ordinary plastic rocker goes right on.

This is an oversized, wide Crampbuster. T07-5074 Crampbuster. Not for standard grips.

Go to the Crampbuster site for more options.

I have the ISO grips on my wing but put grip puppies on the Mighty ST 1300 with a small cramp buster. I was kind of worried about the heated grips on the GSA seeing that it has grip puppies on it and a large cramp buster, the heated grips worked just fine

Done. Didn't really fit but I adapted by a Velcro strip to both the grip and the inside of the rocker. Sorry - forgot the name brand.

I have the Throttle Boss that stretches and it will fit over either. I didn't like the Cramp Buster because it was too big and got in the way. Search for Throttle Boss on Amazon if you are interested.

Have a spare unopened, but the one on my trike is 15 years old and is still good.


I call it a palm rest, and use it in conjunction with a Vista Cruise.

I use the Throttle Rocker brand on my 2012 with stock heated grips. It works great. You can move it around on the grip if you need to adjust it. I never find it in the way. The one I have is about 18 years old. I used it on my ST 1300 before I moved to the wing.

I put grip puppies on my 07 with a throttle rocker. I have no problem with the heated grips and the rocker is a great add on for a palm rest.
