From what I've read they're supposed to be good for the taller longer legged rider.

I have read about John's - kits for years, only ever read good things. He is well respected.

Heck of a lot cheaper than the likes of Highway Hawk too. And as an owner of some HH fwd controls, I can say the chrome isn't astonishing either. Whereas the Johns kit is well respected. Good luck Wink

Hi,

the very first mod I did to my bike, was this forward control kit from johns back at 2006. They take theĀ  pedals forward about 10cm. I couldn't even think riding my bike without those anymore. I highly recommend, they really are worth the price...

They are also so simple, that I have considered making similar set myself to my brother's bike...maybe even as a bit longer version.

I would consider of they move the pedals enough.

On my bike I have the Mapam forward controls, and installed the 14cm HH on a friends bike, and they are much more forward and comfortable than mine.

The fit, look and price of the John kit is spot on though.
