I have a 95 Goldwing that I would like to install cruise control. Should I attempt to get a used system off a parts bike or go with an after market kit. Any suggestions? thanks Jim

If I were doing it, it would be an after market system (either the audiovox ccs-100 or the Rostra Electronic) and ifI wanted an OEM touch, I'd use the OEM right hand cruise switches.. they are available for about $30 to $50.The Audiovx will be ~100 and the Rostra about $170.. The audiovox comes with useable controls, the Rostra needs controls (~40 new or use the OEM controls)..

I installedthe Rostra on my '83, and it performs better than the OEM system on my 1500.. The installation on the '83 is posted HERE

Sandiegobrass is recommending the same thing I would do. The new Rostra and Audiovox all electric units are better than the older vacuum designs. Mainly because they have only one unit to install instead of three and because they can accept many different inputs to use as a control system. I haven't installed one in a bike yet but have installed a couple in cages and can say it's a pretty easy install and these units work excellently. I plan on installing one this fall on my Silverwing scooter, once you have a cruise control the lack of one is a real drawback.

Incidently, the audiovox ccs-100 that I mentioned is a vacuum unit; and tere is an audiovox electronic uint, but as far as I can tell, it is exactly the same as the Rostra electronic.. my guess it is just a rebranded unit... (Rostra making it for Audiovox)

I like the electronic best too, but finding the correct linkage and tuning (with the dip switches)is a little more trial and error compared to the vacuum unit.. None of them are plug and play as each installation is a little different..

Anyone have a model number for the electronic units or a link to where they can be purchased?

the Rostra electronic model is 250-1223.. the universal auto unit.. search for the best price.. I paid about $165 a couple years ago. I bought it HERE. the Audiovox vacuumunit, you can get from Amazon HERE. the Audiovox electronic (like I said..identical tothe Rostra) is also available through Amazon HERE

Will a 1988 Cruise-Switch Assy Fit My 1993 Interstate?

I have a 1993 Interstate and am ready for an aftermarket Rostra Cruise Control Kit. I found a used Rt Hand Shutoff Switch-Cruise Button assembly salvaged off a 1988 GW with factory cruise . Would this unit directly interchange to the current shutoff switch assembly for harness length, S.O. switch connector and handlebar diameter of my 1500 Interstate? I am prepared to splice or rig a connector for the cruise button portion of the installation. I've installed a Rostra unit on my 1967 Skylark and am happy with it.

Good luck with your installation. I tried to do one on a 95 that had no factory cruise. The problem I ran into was mounting the cruise cable to the carb. The bracket to mount is not on bikes that came with no cruise. I had no luck trying to locate the parts I needed. I found a couple of complete carbs. But I did not want to swap them out. Very happy with the pair on the bike. I put mine back in box and sold it to a Valkyrie owner.
