VN800 Jardine Forward Controls

I'm sure if it were possible it'd be all over the forum but just asking: is it possible to modify the VN800 Jardine Forward Controls (available on Ebay) for use on our 750's? Dying for some extra leg room.

Thanks all!

Jardine makes forward controls for the vn750 that retail for about $600 the last I heard.
Not sure what the differences are between the controls for the 750 and the 800, but they are two entirely different machines, and there are no interchangeable parts that I am aware of.

Of course with enough time, money and requisite skills, anything can be made to fit.
IMHO this mod probably requires more work and cash than it is worth.

Bummer. I'm afraid Jardine has pulled the vn750 forward controls from their product line, but I have an email into them just to double check. I'll let ya'll know what they have to say. Thanks for the response!

Jardine says they can acquire the parts to do a run of the foot controls for the vn750. I'm skeptical given that they backed out on me last year, but I'm to receive a call sometime mid-April. Hmmm. Regardless, they are $700.
