Just when I lost hope...

I found these! http://www.jardineproducts.com/index...-controls.html

I thought Jardine had stopped production of the forward controls. Anyhoot, these will be on my bike in the near future! YEAH ADDED LEG ROOM!

I only understand what I don't understand.

LOL, yeah I know it is pricey. However, I don't plan on trading my bike anytime soon, especially if I plan to do custom work to it.

I only understand what I don't understand.

Wow, yeah I couldn't see paying over $300 for any accessory for the bike. A good running VN750 engine is $500... so over $700 for forward controls! pfffft!

Im still very suprised no one has retro fitted any. In theory the pegs need a mount fabricated but the linkage (brake and shift) can't be that complicated I would think. If I had any spare money and more metal working tools I'd have tried by now lol. I'm not sure who's this is but lookie at the forwards...

I dunno. I want this bike to fit me, but at what cost will it take to do so? Being a tall guy (6ft+) isn't easy when I like small vehicles. Heck I drive a Ford Fiesta (worst car ever...) when I am not riding the bike.

I only understand what I don't understand.

Beautiful controls but $$$ OUCH!

Love my Mazda 2 built on the Fiesta frame. Less engine and horsepower than the Fiesta but with stick it goes just fine for around town and 5th gear on parkway does OK and love the mileage.

I wish I had bought the stick version. This auto-man trans is retarded. The car looks good inside and out, but the trans kills the driving experience.

I only understand what I don't understand.

I'd be a little skeptical of that. They show 5 different backrests for the VN750, and none of them look like they would actually fit. And the forward controls they show in the picture are on a Honda. I'd verify before sending them any money.
