Installed Throttlemeister on both our SS-S. First, to get the right item. The Throttlemeister website does not show a part for our bikes, so I called them. They do not have one specifically to fit the SS-S and probably won't make one because of the small'ish inside diameter of the handle bar being 14.5mm. After talking with the guys at Throttlemeister, I decided to order two items w/o any sort of expansion fitting so that they have a 6mm stainless screw. Part No. FH AZ3-H.

My thought was to have a local machine shop fabricate a plug with a threaded hole to press fit into the bar, then screw in the Throttlemeister.

When the parts arrived, I wondered if they would just screw into the stock expansion fitting and by sheer chance, it worked.

To install, loosen the hex screw holding in the stock bar end, then take the brass fitting off the stock screw. Then screw the two-part brass fitting onto Throttlemeister and slide back into the bar. The throttle end will take a bit of fine tuning to get the friction just right. That's it.

The pictures show the stock bar end, the brass fittings, the order to put them on the throttlemeister and the finished result.

I have used Throttlemeisters on each of the last 8 bikes I've owned and find them very useful. The heavy weight model also helps dampen vibration and IMHO looks better than the stock bar end.

Is it a bar end weight or does it have further functionality. Could be the name that made me think it is a type of throttle control for cruising.
It's a bar-end weight and also a throttle lock. Happy to know this works! Not offering cruise control on a great general-purpose bike like the Supersport seems like a mistake...

Can you post a link to the actual part number page for us? Thanks! :grin2:

I ordered via telephone. The part number I listed is from the paper invoice in the shipping box. I suggest calling rather than using the website.

Rhinomoto (bar ends) says the Supersport bars are the same as the Ducati 848. I ordered Rhinomoto’s Ducati 848 bar ends, and they fit perfectly.

So that would be the 14mm kit from Throttlemeister. I plan to call them tomorrow to verify before ordering.

Like the OP, I’ve owned them before (on two bikes, Yamaha FZ1 and VFR1200), and they are very high quality units and work well as a cruise control.

Agreed. Internal diameter will suit the 14mm kit.
Unsure about what's included in the kit but friction washers will be needed because of the few mm gap between handle bar end and the throttle grip.

They come with spacers able to handle that gap if the design doesn’t allow it inward that far. Some of and some don’t, depends on your bars and the mounting kit.

So I got a second hand Throttlemeister off of the little e big B for a good price because it was involved in a tip over. It was supposedly off of a Multistrada 1200. I looked it over and thought it would fit the SuperSport so i ordered it.

Once i got it in it was immediately obvious that it was not, I guess my research was off.



So instead of just a paint job i now needed to find a way to mount this. I got to work with bits i had around.




Now that i have the mounting situation solved and have done several dry fits, i set to work painting because of the blemish and i did not feel the silver went with the bike.



Boom a tasteful red and black

Nice!!! If you find it moving, or doesn’t sit like you want it to, call Throttlemeister and they’ll happily sell you the “correct” mounting kit for around $40.

Looks great, though. I was looking at that one last week and thought about picking it up. I’m still holding out hope for an actual cruise control, at least until spring rolls around!!!

Nice work, @skywurz . Did it work perfectly after your modifications? Any more adjustments going to be required?

Oh, and your grips look different than mine. Did you change them out?
Nope all of the dry fitting I did payed off. I am going to pull them and put some longer bolts in tho. the stock weight bolts ar something like m6 x 55mm and I found some m6 x 60mm around that I used, but they were not corrosion resistant and still short so I have some stainless 70mm that just came in that I'll locktie.

Yeah i swapped my factory grips for Heated Ducati grips. They really close up the gap between the bar weight and grip on the left hand and I like that. They are also a little bigger diamiter.
