I'm wanting a set. This bike cramps me up too bad to care about sport riding it. I'll buy a sport bike if I want to do that. I need to stretch out the legs. So that being said, I'm looking for some forward controls.

Thanks fellas.

Quarterhorse,

I included pictures of forward controls from the exactrep (www.exactrep.com) website and mid controls from the over racing website (www.over.co.jp). The forward are about $544.00 US and the mids are 100,000 yen (?)

I have Yamaha's engine case protectors with highway pegs on them and they do me ok.

Mike

Yeah I thought about the case guards with pegs, but I can't get over how much I don't like the look. Nothing personal, it's just a "me" thing.

I know they're spendy, I think 'cause they may be worth it haha.

I have seen a vmax with this style of forward pegs on his bike - maybe another option for you? When I asked him, he said that they were a kuryakyn brand.

Hey Dustin, You really need to ride Nathan's Vmax (you haven't met him) and see what you think before dropping that kind of money. I am 6' too and with Morley's seat I have done 300 mile days with no issues in the leg department. I however put my feet on the crash bungs every so often. I just don't like my feet in front of me when accelerating hard.

+1 on the demo. $500 would sting if you didnt like em'.

I'm 6' 2" and my forwards are still just a bit too short.

If I was 6'0" they would be just right.

I've put 250 miles on my bike and I limp when I get off it because I get cramped up so bad.
