Default Cruise Control Release.

Does anyone know if there is a way to tighten up the throttle release for the cruise control? Mine has gotten so sensitive just placing your hand on the grip will sometimes release the cruise control.

try adjusting the throttle cables like the manual states, you should have some slack in the cables

I've got slack, the problem is the amount of pressure required to release the cruise is way too light. Its dang near impossible to ride the bike on cruise with the both hands on the grips.

2 choices. Adjust the cables as per the OM. I read you have slack but do you have the correct amount? Yes they can be sensitive to adjustment.
Second would be follow the cruise line down the bars and under the right side of the gas tank. Unplug the two prong plugs. NOTE: Doing this will cause you to lose the ability to turn of the cruise by rolling the throttle.
I have never used this function but know some do and don;t want you to be surprised.
See if adjusting helps first. Good luck.

Unhooking the position terminals is a band-aid and not a fix. It will get you through but keep looking for the real problem.
