The Rostra electronic cruise control is a popular and proven product. With the Rostra cruise control pn 250-1223, there are no vacuum lines and canisters that need to be mounted or tapped into; the unit governs speed based on the input it receives from the bike speed sensor wire.

Brian Felice has kindly given his permission to post his excellent installation instructions developed while installing one on his Concours 14. You can see the well detailed and photo documented product here.
And just recently, Kendrick Pavey fully documented his installation on his BMW K1200S. Thanks Kendrick!
Murphs' kit includes the control pad and a relay for a secure ground reference for the brake (details on that can be found in the installation instructions). A picture of the unit is not very exciting; it's just a black box after all! The picture in the upper right shows the control pad mounted using a bracket available as an option for an extra $20 added to the price shown above. Please note: The picture in the upper right shows a control pad that is an option for the Rostra kit. The optional control pad, PN 250-3592, is virtually identical in appearance to the control pad included, with the exception that it has a lighted "Engaged" indicator. You can add this to your purchase by selecting the appropriate choice in the drop down list at the bottom of the page. You also add the slick mounting bracket as well.
Be sure to choose whether or not you want the mounting bracket from the option list below before adding this to the shopping cart.
And as always with Murphs', shipping to the lower 48 is included in the price!
Be very aware that the cruise controls offered on this site are UNIVERSAL AUTOMOTIVE cruise controls. None of them have been approved for motorcycle application by their respective manufacturers. However, over the years ingenious tinkerers have adapted them to several models of motorcycles. We can not, and will in no way, guarantee they will work on your motorcycle. We are also unable to offer technical support during installation. All sales of cruise controls are final, and under no circumstances will we accept return units. Any warranty issues are covered by the respective manufacturers, and are between you and them.
Furthermore, think carefully about whether or not you have the talent and skill necessary to install this device on your motorcycle. This is by no means a simple installation, and if not done correctly can result in potentially dangerous operating conditions. We cannot emphasize this enough.
We appreciate your understanding.
We've recently added an electrical adapter to ease the installation of the cruise control on many bikes, you can add that to your purchase here.
