Some might like that, but I'll stick with the levers no matter how cheap this is.

I think it's an awesome idea! I don't know if I'd like it any better or worse than the conventional levers, but it's still pretty damn cool. I'd definitely like to try it out on a bike with this already set up.

That is pretty cool actually... wonder if I can use my own grips with this... :confused:
Normally when a person uses an internal twist clutch and an internal throttle, two left grips are used. Your right grip has a protrusion where the throttle & idle cables attach & an internal throttle does not work like that. I would assume that this system would work similar & use two lefts too.

I do have two lefts on mine courtesy of XOPRODOXs ... :D

The suicide clutch is far more scetchy than all others!

Found this auto clutch old concept new parts! Would be great a BikeWeek and Chicago traffic, LA and New York!!

That's pretty nice too... our shaft drives would be an issue with that... wonder if he makes something like that for "shafts"... :rolleyes:

Hi guys saw this in a magazine and thought it was sharp so I thought Id let the mod men check it out...

Seems expensive but innovative for no lever look!!!
Twist Brake - Parts - Kraus Motor Co.

Wonder how many would get this done?
I can hardly keep everything straight now. I will defiantly CRASH with that get up! :D

The clutch would be kinda cool. The brake on the other hand worries me. I'm trying to understand the mechanics of this. Like most riders I know I release the throttle when shifting. When I am really getting on the throttle, going through the gears, I think I may be afraid of going too far and slamming my brakes while trying to accelerate. I would not buy this based on an ad. I would have to ride a bike with this installed and determine it I COULD ride a bike with this installed. But like I said, the clutch would be cool. And it may confuse a would be thief when they tried to start the bike and there was no clutch lever.

I would need to ride one first, with the twist brake and clutch. They say 1 block is all you need to get it.

Cruise control would be a small issue also. For a show bike this would be best.

The auto clutch is sharp, great for rush hour, I have to call that dude to see if he is still make'n them and is shaft drive an issue as stated by RSS.

That's a good point, I never thought of that. I wonder how much play there would be between the throttle twist and the brake twist?

I have to side with Tony on this one. I believe it is inherently dangerous from this perspective. You are starting to loose control or in an emergency situation, your body weight is shifting and your are holding on for dear life. What are you holding on to, the grips. With this you could throttle up or down or brake no brake an a critical time and inadvertently make the situation worse. Bye-Bye! No control!:(
