Finally found time to install the cruise control.


Very happy with it. It will make the first 600 miles easier. I live in Iowa...600 miles in any direction to get somewhere interesting.:smile2:

Hey racnruss, did it actually take the 4 hours others are talking about to install? I thought it was a plug & play.

I installed mine recently, if it is the first time that you take your tank off and are not familiar with the process it will take 3 hrs. Most of the time is taken by the removal and reinstallation of the plastics and tank. It is worth every minute as the system is great.

I do agree! I live in AUS and found the MC cruise system through this forum. No one can come close to what these guys do, so I ordered one (tickets over here are way too expensive). I have never used cruise on a bike, and it is so good to set and forget. It is not hard, just take your time and it all comes together. Tony will email info to help you before the unit arrives, so you know the hardest parts before you start.

It is easy and the time will fly; because you are learning how to pull the bike down for normal checks/services

Where did you get the cruise control and how much are they?

Thanks!

You can order directly from McCruise website. Comes out to $550 US for cruise along with dongle harness. Price shows $760 AUD, but converts to $550 US and that includes shipping.

Anyone with this cruise control opt for the bottom mount? I just ordered mine and went with the bottom mount. My thought process was the it would be easier to access with my thumb.

Just finished install and test ride and man I couldn’t be happier. Didn’t realize what I was missing. Definitely going to make those long trips much more enjoyable.

Install took about 4 hours but I took my time. Could probably be done in 2.5-3 hours.

I opted for the bottom mount and it seems to be a good fit.

I considered it, but just too many people recommended MCCruise.

However, I have had my first issue with the MCCruise today. Rode around 200 miles and every time I would stop turn key off and then turn key back on the cruise would blink green/red and would not work. Then after a few miles the system started working again. Did this a total of 3 times. Anyone else has this problem?

Issue resolved. It was a user error.

I did get to experience customer service and it was top notch. Tony with MCCruise called within a few hours of my initial email to explain the problem.

I have a unit on route to Canada (tomorrow I hope), bottom mount with dongle patch, total cost was 700 CAD including shipping and another 107 for tax and brokerage fees so in total 807 CAD.


I ordered it on Saturday evening and it's scheduled for delivery tomorrow. Not bad, Melbourne Australia to Montreal Canada in five business days.

In order for the cruise to work you have to first grab and engage your front brake. This is a safety setup. This has to happen after every time you start the bike. Which 9 times out of 10 I was doing, but on the occasion I could not get it to work I apparently had not engaged front brake.

So I now get in the habit of engaging front brake upon every start up. Problem solved.

I installed the MC Cruise Control over the weekend along with the power parts ergo heated seat and the heated seat took most of the time. The MC Cruise Control install is pretty simple just read the instructions thru once or twice before you start. The only part that had me for a second was connecting the TPS harness to the main harness. I could not get the pins into the plug :frown2: I almost broke one. Then I went back to the installation instructions and saw that I missed the step about unlocking the main harness plug pin holders and then inserting the pins :grin2:


Here is a video I found on the www that explains the install and calibration of the MC cruise control on a KTM 1190, its pretty good.
