First pic is standard foot controls.

Second pic you can see that the foot controls have been moved 2.5 inch forward.

This takes about 1-2 hours and as Im 6 foot this is fantastic, you can co for the expensive £400 set but Im not that block with loads of cash so this uses your existing controls.

The kit is by John's kits & only at $140 not including postage is just what you want

I got a set of these from John in the USA and he is a top bloke. He downgraded the price even though I paid the right price, so that I did'nt pay any duty.

Hi Scotland Warrior
Nice Bike
I like a lot of the things you have done to your bike and the video is superb.
I am going to put twin lights on mine and have bought a pair of 4 1/2" ones ready.
What size are your lights??

Glas is 5" but hole light 6". What I found is there is a big gap above the lights so I thought of the tool role, I find itsjust that bit different and helps to put your own spin on the overall look.

If you do go down that road, once you have test fit the bag put two good cable tyes through your bags bottom left & right corners placing them round the forks, this giving you the peace of mint that they will not move with speed.



As for the forward controls, hell yea the ride position and overall cumfort even handling, to me is better and now that Ive just fit 100, Drag bars Ive got that Muscle look horse shoe riding position.

Hi Scotland warrior

Thanks for that,it sounds like you have got the 5 3/4" lights,thats what I should have got,but as usual I couldn't make up my mind. Yours does look good though.

I was looking at your tank on the video.
That is a real cool Idea and I thought about doing that to a screen,but there is a guy on Ebay that I have dealt with in the past and he makes a real nice small screen that I reckon you would love.

Ive seen that and It look OK but the mounts for the risers would be an issue. Mine costs £30 but takes time.
