Yeap, the Rostra is working great for me too. Installation is a little involved but doable if you have some mechanical and electrical skills.

Had a McCruise on the ST1300... just plug and play.  It will be on the C14 soon, unless someone comes out with something as good/better that installs just as easy.

  Slightly different input here...I had flawless factory CC on my BMW LT but I still used it only to flex my hands and such....a throttle lock device will work for me. Connie still shoulda had it ;D

Had anyone done up a step by step tutorial on how to mount one on a C14?

Brian's step-by-step is great.  It took me a week to get the thing working because some of the colors were different but I am not very smart.  The Rosta has the right price and works.  There is a bit of drilling required on the throttle body lever but if I can do anybody can.
Keep it simple - if no one has shot at me or tried to blow me up it is a good day.

Yeah, as others have said, the tutorial w/ photos is over on Murph's site. Make sure you get the most recent update though, I believe it was dated 29 March.

I love my MC Cruise Control.

Now would  be a  great time for Brian to announce that the cruise control he's been working on is finished and ready for distribution....  :P

You guys have been great waiting for this thing to hit the market. I have been on the slow side, and several things have gotten in the way. The next things in the way are the trip to PA (COG spring fling), a trip to the other coast to see my son, and finally the trip to the Mouse- mont for the national COG event . I appreciate those waiting for this product.

The project is just too involved to move quickly: there is the design, material, legalities (including patents), then the alpha testing, followed by the beta testing. Once enough hours have been applied to the device I can move forward and sell it to the public at large. It has been a long journey, probably announced too early but the project continues on. I still believe it will be a great device and will satisfy even the hard -core and most demanding user.

So I thank you for your support, and gracefully take the occasional poke in the eye.We are nearing the end of the design cycle, where the product, ready or not, goes into public hands for testing.

Again, I thank everyone for their support- you people have really been great through this whole project.

You guys are being suckered. Don't you realize it's all been a long running April fools joke? Brian is obviously an employee of Kawasaki and has no intention of doing anything but bump up sales and profits for Kawasaki! The real mission behind the mystery wonder CC is to keep you from spending money with someone else. They really want to get you to buy offical Kawasaki accesories or a newer C14! They don't even plan to release a cruise control! April fools! Sorry Brian, I  couldn't let you con these nice people anymore. It's been two years now!   :o
 By the way, I bet you didn't realize Brian and Mark are actually a team. Good Kawasaki employee, bad Kawasaki employee!   :rotflmao:
