Make R nineT cruising less wrist-averse
An inexpensive and practical alternative to electronic systems, Wunderlich’s new Cruise Control makes long stretches on the R nineT a lot less taxing on the wrist.
Quick and easy to install, using only basic tools, the Cruise Control system is housed in a replacement aluminium handlebar weight, which fits neatly and simply in place of the original – no drilling or cutting of the bars or twistgrip required and no fiddly wiring installation either.
The rider operates the Cruise Control by rotating the built-in adjustment wheel forwards, applying a small amount of pressure to the twistgrip.
Adding light pressure to the Cruise Control slows the return of the twistgrip and takes the strain off the wrist and hand. By adding more pressure, the control is held in position, to set a desired speed/throttle opening. To release, the rider simply rotates the mechanism backwards.
Teeth on the adjustment wheel make it easier for gloved fingers to grip it firmly and allow for fine adjustment. The control mechanism is Teflon-mounted for smoothness and to prevent sticking or tight spots.
The shape of the weight is like the original factory-fitted item on the left side, so a symmetrical appearance is retained. The Wunderlich R nineT Cruise Control is available at the introductory price of £75.00 and comes complete with full fitting and operating instructions.
