Sabre Tech & Modifications
Alternate Vista Cruise Mounting
by Terry "mte" Eiland
Kevin's throttle lock (
http://www.motohaas.com/home1.htm) has been the standard cruise
control mount for the Sabre. There are alternatives...
This is the standard 7/8" Vista Cruise, drilled out
to fit 1" bars, then mounted with an alternative "all thumb" angle.
"When researching locks on the forum, I didn't like
hearing about having to install the Vista lock with the "trigger" in
an awkward position. Per suggestions here, I bought one, enlarged
the center to fit the handlebar, and then looked for a way to mount
it more conveniently. This worked for me: On the bottom of the
adjacent switch housing there is what I presume to be a drain hole.
I used a 1/4 inch thread tap to tap some threads in this hole, and
then used a very short bolt installed into these threads (with a
little locktite) to hold the lock's "feet". I then drilled a small
hole adjacent to provide a drain. This puts the "trigger" at perfect
position to operate with your thumb. Mine works great."
