    vista cruise for c50

    Can someone please tell me whats involved mounting vista cruise to my C50? Am I going to make trouble for myself if I attempt it, as Ive never seen one in operation, but have problems as I know a lot of us do, with tingling in my thumb and fore fingers. Thanks, as usual, guys and ladys.

    If you're having tingling fingers, you may want to check your grip strength as you're riding. A "death grip" is fairly common, and easily remedied by being aware of it and consciously relaxing a bit. Throttle locks and similar items can be nice for highway riding, but you won't get much use in town. Gel palm gloves can also absorb some vibration / buzz.

    The Vista Cruise install looks pretty straight forward:

    I have a vista cruise and I prety much only use it if I'm doing a lot of highway driving. 100 miles or more I may use it once or twice to give my hand a rest. But its nice to have. There prety easy to install. The way you want to line it up before you clamp it down is you want it rotated so the trigger is pointing toward you. If its sticking up in the air its really hard to use, I found out from trial and error. There is a metal bar that connects the handle bar clamp to the grip clamp and I have that positioned between my hazzard switch and my engine cut off switch.

    The hardest part about it is installing the rubber gasket in the clamping ring that grabs the grip. Just use a little flat head screw driver to wiggle it into place and its not to bad. You also need to adjust the tension. If you don't have enough the cruise will vibrate loose and wont hold its speed. And if its too tight it will be a little difficult to use. Once its clamped on you will still want to be able to rotate the grip if you want to give it a little more gas.

    I only use mine when I ride alone or to give my hand a little rest. I used it once following behind a friend of mine and I accidentally rode up on him prety close and had a moment when I forgot how to disengage it. So make sure to practise with it a little.
