....sure they'd work....with the proper tweaks....
...fer us old farts, easier to build a trike with almost all foot controls...

Thinking about it more daily.....

That one is a lil unique, therefore the price...but ya know what I mean...would be nice to cary 4 cases of tallboys with me too....I could never do one of them CanAm things....bass ackwards....but....trikes are the key for many of us older riders....they dont fall over either....normally....

Do you have netflix account? If so look up Ultimate car build off... One of the episodes they make a wheely trike out of a a couple of XS1000 and a quad. I got looking at my quad rear ends, and the drive line u-joints are the same... One of these days I might get a second quad and another VN750 to try to build a Trike.

Wow, this thread went off topic real fast....lol. (Not sure what trikes have to do with adjustable levers)

They offered adjustable levers for the Vulcan for a very short time...(Flanders made them I believe) odds of finding a set now are remote.

You could adapt a set from another bike. Easier if you switch to a different master cylinder to do so.

You can also just bend your levers slightly to accomplish the same thing...

To get back on topic,yes we can get them for cruisers,my 1500 came with them stock. I don't know about the clutch side on a 750 because it is cable operated but the front brake side would be simple,if you found a used front mastercyl with the adjustable lever it would probably be as cheap as buying an after market lever.




If you see it on my bike I did it
VROC#30324
92 vn750(sold)
Current ride 05 1500 Classic FI
lovin' the new scoot
