I notice nobody talks here about a cruise control. I love one on the highway and was wondering if there's any aftermarket ones available? Not pinch throttles but an actual cruise. My glide has one and I'd sure like on on my hoss.
thanks

Audiovox CCS-100 on our trike too. Works like a charm! :D

Like this idea alot. So as I was riding along yesterday, looking at my handle bars, I would guess that you's have to mount this on the left side of the bars so that you can maintain your speed as you pressed the appropriate button with you left hand?

I'm going to check if I can make a Harley cruise work as the controls are compatible with the ones on the Hoss, I think.

A few weeks back there was some discussion about the Audiovox Electronic Cruise Control. Could someone please give some more details as to how it works. Does it work off of the speedometer. Does it have a control box and where do you mount it. Does it have a cable that pulls the throtle or what. Also when you hit the brake or turn off the throtle will it turn off. Also where did most of you mount the control. Anyone have pictures.

Thanks,
Larry

I am installing one as we speak. This is the secound one on our Boss's. It does all of the same things as your automobile will do. The servo is about 4" in diameter and fits under the left side panel facing the rear with the cable looping around going to the carburetor. You have room and all will work well unless you have L.E.D's for stop lights. The unit uses the stop light bulbs as a ground and when the brakes go on the power shuts them off.

Bryan,
The control switch is not "waterproof." However, due to it's membrane switch contacts, it is somewhat "resistant." The switch on my Valk has gotten wet a couple times when I washed the bike (I now cover it when doing that) and it refused to work until it dried out. It has never gotten wet enough while riding in the rain to cause any problem.

As added protection, I ran a small bead of silicone sealer around the top and sides of the housing where it mounts to the bracket to help reduce water getting in. However, the bottom should be left unsealed to allow any moisture to get out. I did the same on the Boss, but it is better protected being mounted inside the chrome lamp housing.

Hello Dave,

Would you please give me details on the "lamp housing" (?) where your Audiovox switch pad is mounted. Is that a Audiovox assembly? Very clean set-up...

Thanks, Desert Deuce

Desert,
The "lamp housing" is a small chrome universal lamp used on street rods for turn signals, etc. known as "Rod Lites." There are large and small versions that look alike, but the large one with the visor shape works best.



They are available from just about any hot rod or street rod shop and online from a number of sources. Prices range from $10.00-15.00 each. Here is one I found:http://www.taillightking.com/ Look for "large rectangular rod lights" under "accessory lights."

You will need to remove the lens and guts of the lamp and fabricate an aluminum plate to replace the lens. Then mount the Audiovox switch panel to the aluminum plate.
