Default Cruise Control Cross Roads

Can you have cruise control put on the 2010 Cross Roads?

I bought my XR a week ago. My dealer said yes. He has installed 2. It takes about 45 minutes to install it but about 8 hours to get it adjusted properly. Cost is about $400 for parts and $600 for labor. I'm having it installed as soon as parts are in.

If I understand your question correctly, I had the cruise control added. It's exactly the same unit as the XC, plugs in the same. It took longer than expected as I was told the wiring needed to be fished to the back - which was unexpected. Works great!

Default The labor charge??

Greetings:
On the labor charge for the install of the XR Cruise Control,... $600?? Any chance that could be a type-o? Sounds very steep. Even for Victory.

I get 10% off through the dealer I bought my JP from and ordered a cruise control for it ($361). I plan on installing it myself.

It's hard to imagine it takes any time at all to adjust it. All it does is hold the speed when set and turn off if the brakes are engaged.

What kind of adjustment might be needed?

On the labor charge that they explained to me-8 hours at $75 per hour= $600. I'm hoping it wasn't a ploy to get more money from me. It is mounted under the tank so to test it they have to put it all together and drive it. If an adjustment is needed they have to remove the tank, adjust it, put it back together, and road test it again. They have to continue doing this until it's adjusted properly. If it takes less time they said they would charge me less. It's the cables that control the throttle that has to be adjusted. I am getting the 10% discount also so my cost will be a little less.

Sorry to be a pessimist about this labor charge, but I think a second opinion would be in order. That business about road testing, taking the tank off, adjusting, tank back on, road test again, and on and on,...

I'm not a cycle tech/wrench, but that doesn't sound quite right to me. Before I cough up that kind of scratch, someone would have to explain why that procedure is necessary.

I had the dealer install the cruise for me @ 500 miles. They had a hell of a time getting it installed and even ended up removing the swing arm for some reason. If I pay MSRP for any accessories they install at no cost. Mine was the first cruise they had done on an X bike and they were not happy but stuck by their word. They said never again on the cruise but of course the 2011s have that covered.

No! What they said was they would never do another cruise on an X bike without charging labor. They had to spend allot of unpaid time on it I guess. But I had them do their own exhaust upgrade for $599 so I think they made out alright.
