The Acerus single cable throttle assembly for the Honda Shadows is machined from billet aluminum, or solid brass and made to work seamlessly with the stock Honda Shadow throttle pull cable. That's right! You do not need to run a push cable!
The stock throttle assembly is quite bulky and lacks any kind of visual aesthetic. Who are we kidding, it's totally haggard! Many riders wish to clean up their bikes cockpit by removing the stock assembly, relocating their switches, (videos HERE) getting rid of the push cable and going to a single pull cable (videos HERE).
This version of our world famous Acerus throttle assembly has an added throttle lock feature! When riding, simply use your thumb to tighten the thumb screw to hold your throttle in place so you can give your right hand a rest on those long hauls. To release the throttle lock simply use your thumb to turn the wheel back. The internal Delrin shoe which holds your throttle sleeve in place is strong enough to hold the throttle sleeve at the desired speed, but can be overcome with a bit of pressure, so if you need to roll the throttle forward in an emergency, you can do so.

Does not fit the TJBC "PLASTIC SUCKS" Throttle Tube.
For a perfect fit we recommend pairing this with our Malleus Machined Gripset!
Do not over tighten clamp bolts. Use red loctite on the bolts. Fits 1" bars, will accommodate most grips for 1 inch bars. When clamping the assembly on your bars, a small gap between upper and lower halves is normal, this ensures that the clamp isn't bottomed out before it can adequately clamp the bars. This allows the clamp to work well on raw material bars or bars that have plating or powder coating. When installing on powder coated bars, it may be necessary to use a mallet to tap the halves of the assembly together so the bolts can grab the threads. Powder coating isn't an exact science and the thickness can vary from brand to brand, there is no way to anticipate this and if we made the clamps ID bigger, it wouldn't fit chromed bars.
We advise using a bit of lubricant inside the throttle assembly and under the throttle sleeve for smooth twist action and prolonged life of the parts.
