    Cruise Control

    Anyone ever try creating a cruise control of some kind for the non-CC ski's like the VXR/S??

    Made cruise controls for years out of a small wedge of wood......

    I guess if it works it works...

    I would've thought there would be something else out there.

    If you want to get really fancy, use a golf tee....they come in many different colors to compliment your ski.

    Nice ideas all, I have been thinking about this too as I have got a few distance rides coming up here soon. Was thinking about a wedge made out of hard rubber but I guess about anything would work. Good idea on golf tee that never occurred to me!

    Here is a little different spin. I only do this at very low speeds because I have cruise control but the no wake button is often too slow. The CC that you use at speed when you hold the throttle all the way down has to be engaged at 3,000 rpm (too fast) and then push the down button to slow it to where I want to go. I then use a "cinch" (a wrist lanyard made of neoprene) to hold the throttle down. I figure if I fall off I'll pull the stop lanyard anyway so its safe.

    Now you can use the same cinch pull without CC at all. Just cinch it tighter to the speed you desire. But don't attach the other end to you in any way. Otherwise if you fall off or move you will pull the cinch tighter to full throttle which would be very bad. I can take a pic to show what I mean but it is pretty simple.

    Just make sure you hang the wedge / golf tee or what ever you use from the bottom of the throttle.....and have it attached to the handle bar with a string, that way when you gas it, it falls out.........

    or if you dont put the reverse lever all the way down and you go over the handle bars
