Cruise Control - 2017 ZX-14R
10/15/17 4:46 AM

Is anyone running an aftermarket cruise control for a late (2016-2017) ZX14-R.
I can very little on options for late model ZX14's.

The nicest option i've seen is the MCCruise option - but they only do 2006-2011.
when I asked the local dealer about them, they called the Australian distributor who said they haven't sold any in the last 3 years. And wouldn't be prepared to guarantee one would work unless I shipped the bike to their shop in Western Australia -- the other side of the country.

The Throttlemeister from my '06 bolted right onto my '14. Works for me

I'm pretty sure AJBT is talking about a real cruise control and not just a throttle lock. A throttle lock isn't a bad alternative given the price and easy of install if all you are looking for is a minute or 2 break for your wrist.

I've seen a couple of threads for the Rostra cruise control, this one is an electrically actuated unit versus a vacuum actuated unit. In my opinion the biggest advantage of the electric cruise controls is you don't need to find room for the vacuum canister.

I believe that the cruise control units aren't bike specific and that you need to be a bit creative during the installation to make it all fit. Privateer who has been around the forums for a long time did a bit of a write up, I think he sold his ZX14 a while ago and I'm not sure how often he is on the forums but you could always try resurrecting these old threads for help if you decide to go this route.

Here's a link to the link in the link that I posted for the cruise control since the link in the link doesn't link properly... :)

Thanks Nightmare,

Looks like I might be doing some more customisation for the Ninja yet :)

just to mention an alternative and rather basic solution that works well for me: the Cramp Buster by Scott Oiler

Prob wise to check with Murph's beforehand if you're thinking about the Rostra he sells, because his site has the ZX14 but the Rostra isn't shown on his ZX14 page. I believe he's more focused on the Kawasaki Concours 14, based on what I've read on that forum.

Good luck, tho! Sure wish mine had cruise

I’ve run crampbusters, the O-Ring, and clamp style manual cruise controls.

Nothing compares to the KAOKO throttle lock. It’s speedy, but absolutely worth it.
