Cruise Control for your Bike
We are pleased to resell and fit
Cruise an AUSTRALIAN made cruise control SPECIFICALLY for bikes and Quad
Electronic Cruise Control uses a computer to maintain any
"set" speed over 50kph (30mph). It instantly deactivates by
either front or rear brake lever pressure sufficient to turn on the
brake lights. There is also an electronic clutch switch (ECS) on most
models. The ECS is designed to disable the cruise if the clutch is
disengaged inadvertently while the cruise is engaged. It is not intended
to be used to disengage the cruise in normal use.
To engage the cruise
control you accelerate the bike to the desired speed and press the 'SET' button.
You can accelerate the bike, if desired, by using the throttle. When the
throttle is released the cruise control will take over again at the previous set
To increase the
cruise control speed the "SET" key may be pressed and held.
The speed will gradually increase until the key is released. The cruise
control will then maintain the new speed. Alternatively the "Tap
up" feature allows you to increase the speed by about 1.5 KPH (1
MPH) each time the "SET" key is momentarily pressed.
To decrease the
cruise control speed the "RES" key may be used in the same way
as the "SET" key, but this will reduce the speed instead of
If the cruise control is
disengaged by the brakes or the clutch (if the ECS is fitted), the cruise
control may be resumed by pressing the "RES" key. The bike will
gradually accelerate to the previous set speed. The cruise control will not
resume speed if the cruise control has been turned off, either with the power
switch or the bike ignition switch.
The principles behind your
cruise control are very simple:
- The computer monitors
the frequency of electrical impulses generated by magnets passing a sensor
or impulses from the motorcycle's electronic speedometer sender unit;
- When the SET key is
pressed, the computer stores the pulse frequency at the time in memory and
then continuously adjusts the vacuum actuator, which controls the
carburettors (or injectors) to maintain the pulse frequency at the same
figure to which it was set. If the frequency drops below the set frequency,
the computer applies more throttle. If the frequency is above the set
frequency, the computer backs the throttle off. The computer monitors and
reacts to changes very quickly and smoothly so that the speed effectively
remains nearly constant.
