I use Exile, no issues but no experience with the others. Gard and Russell I thought were good friends so I wouldn't be surprised if Exile supplied ChopRod's or vice versa.

I used Streamline before finding the fantastic NASH Sticky throttle featuring cruise control!

Streamlines were nice but I think Austin flew the coop again. I havent been able to get any for a couple months. I have been using the Nash my only complaint is they require 1 1/8" grips which drastically reduces your grip options. Exile also 1 1/8" grips.

LA Choprods looks is interesting it looks different than the exile. i will call tomorrow to see what size grips it uses. i am still looking for something to fill the gap that the Streamlines left......

Subscribing to the thread for more info......post away guys!

Thanks guys for all the information I was leaning towards the streamline but now that you mentioned the issue with actually getting one I'll look at the ChopRods or the Nash. I'm trying to search as much info as I can I know the CR is in stock I don't know the availability of the Nash. The cruise control sounds nice but how safe is it can it have the possibility of getting stuck open when in cruise?

There is no issue with the NASH sticking, it is a small button of Teflon that is adjusted with a set screw that applies just enough resistance to overcome return spring in carb.
It slowing wears over the course of a riding season so that you must re-adjust when it cannot maintain bike speed. Even if you intentionally tried to jam the Teflon in tight with the set screw, the throttle would always override the tight setting by hand.

And John is right about grip choices. I used Eddie Trotta billet grips and had to have the throttle side bored out on a lathe.

I think I still have a Streamline throttle that I used for the first year, let me know if you wish to buy it, I'll have to do some digging to find it, but it would be in like new condition.
