    I checked their website. I'm sure it works, but it seems very expensive. I would consider it if I would go on motorways every day or frequently.

    Cheers, V.

    Agree its not cheap especially as i will have to pay import duty and vat, however it some thing thats missing, its such a shame Honda dont offer as an option, properly as it would comprise the NT1100 spec, although that bike is too heavy.  As regards price its a complicated bit of kit and its the only one on the market, I do like the option on controls. I suspect  it could comprise the warranty, but I would remove it if I needed any warranty claims. I have a couple of questions to put to the manufacturer, will Honda know from the electronics/brain in the bike is its ever been fitted & can a conversion kit be supplied when I change/sell the bike?  will the blog posted, however I will properly going to order it once the xmas period is over.

    Your questions are legitimate, if you're thinking taking this step. I would not want to void the warranty either.
    Keep us posted on the answers.

    Cheers, V.

    Director of McCruise replied to my email and said they had had not issues with manufacturers warranties. Suggested it was easy to disconnect the main connections if in doubt

    Email as follows:
    Hi David,

     

    We have never heard of any issues with warranty on our product.  If there are any concerns, you can disconnect the wiring and restore the bike to original so it can be checked over without the cruise connected.  You don’t need to remove the cruise or the wiring, just disconnect where the cruise is connected to the bike and restore the original connections.  Then the bike can be tested in original condition by the dealer.

     

    There are only two significant connections from the point of view of testing for issues with the bike’s electronics, the throttle grip sensor connection and two wires that connect to the ECU plug for speed and clutch switch signal.  The other connections are superficial and will not effect the bike’s systems in any way, but they are very easy to disconnect anyway (rear brake light switch plug, and ignition coil connection).

     

    Best regards,

     

    Frank Guymer

    Director

    Mine will be arriving in the next few days.  I put one on my 2018 Africa Twin Adventure Sports and for 5 years have felt it more than worth the money.  Is more precise than the one on my GL1800 and can be set as low as 20mph for school zones.  One of the first things I ordered for the Transalp when it had but 8 miles on it.

    I'm really interested.   Please let us know how the installation goes.

    Installed mine on the 1st and did the calibration yesterday.  Process was much easier than the one on my ATAS and the Calibration went off with only one hitch.  The weather here is rain and 40 F so I gambled that I could do the running calibration on the center stand with the traction control off.  Calibration went fine, but ended up with a check engine light to be cleared, which is what happened on the ATAS as well.  Currently 42 and rain so will not be testing it in the near future, even to ride it to the shop to clear the fault.

    Anyone know how to clear the fault light without going to the Honda shop?
