Looking at getting cruise control fitted to an ELXR8 with ABS.
Found this on ebay, does it look like everything needed and what would an approx labour cost to get it fitted be you think?
Item would cost $260 with postage plus $60 for the throttle to module cable
Thanks.

That ebay seller is usually a bit expensive with his gear - $260 is a bit much.
I've got a complete setup for an I6 (black buttons), I'm in Wollongong usually fortnightly, I can give you a hand to install - it's pretty easy.

PM me if you're interested.
