  • Mccruise Electronic Cruise Control

    Does anyone have a procedure on installing Mccruise's electronic cruise control on a 2005 R* Midnight Silverado? It's going to be about a $1,000.00. I wanted to get some input before I spend the money.

    1/3 the value of the bike?
    Never heard of anyone installing one.

      Sorry for my ignorance, I don’t see Yamaha roadstar listed on their site and am assuming this system is designed to work with electronic throttle bodies or drive by wire technology?

        Your just kidding..... Right? Spend $180 and get the Break A Way throttle lock and ride.

          I've contemplated adding electronic cruise to my R* but haven't gotten there yet. There are some options out there that are far less than $1000.

          Here's a Rostra kit at Murph's Kits (I've never dealt with them just happen to have seen this site before). Murph used to offer a clone of the Audiovox CCS100 that was a bit cheaper than the Rostra but used a vacuum actuator instead of the electronic servo.

            My CHEAPASS THROTTLE LOCK works just fine.

              Nothing wrong with simple or cheap.

            The Rostra kit is around $300.00 dollar at Summit. It is a universal kit, and there a few youtube videos of people installing it on bikes.

            There is no listing for the Road Star on their website, but there is for the V-Star 1100 and it uses the push - pull cables similar to the Road Star.

            You can do a search and find it on other websites.

            You will also need to get the switch control pad.

            and maybe the 250-4165 Magnetic VSS Speed Pulse Generator Kit for Rostra and Audiovox Cruise Control

            I have not installed one of these but I checked on this setup a few years back. I'm sure you would have to fab up the brackets for it to work on your Road Star.

            Good luck and ride safe.

              I've got me one of these. [Thanks for the recommendation RodieRob.] It's made of aluminum, took less than 10 seconds to install, and for less than $12 you can't go wrong. Mine does the job nicely; you just have to be attentive when using it and not become forgetful.

              Rests on the brake lever to hold throttle open. Roll off throttle manually to disengage GoCruise. Made from 6061 machined aluminum.

                I have something just like it. Helps reduce fatigue but still isn’t like having true cruise.
