    Throttle Lock?

    I just installed them. I read the instructions that koako had and the bar weight did not come out. Used the so called GODZILLA method. Big hammer and a pair of big pliers. About 2 to 4 whacks and it popped out. Installation of the koako was easy. Just a matter of a few minutes. *hardest part...
