Not mid controls, but they're fairly nice for the money. I've got a set, and they're bolt on, and with some slight modifications, I've tightened them up a bit.

thanks, I will have to measure this out, it might just be what I need , and without dropping 1200+ bucks.

Nope. Ordered them. Waited a month. Suddenly got informed they are no longer available.

Made my own.

well that's a bummer. I just sent an email directly to over racing about them.

Nice work!! How much of that was fabricated vs fraken parting?

Yeah I sent one of those emails. Then I found them offered at J-parts.com. I ordered them. Waited 2 months. Got notified they were discontinued. I hope you have better luck.

Well, the shifter is made out of BMW linkage, a fabricated pivot that rides on ceramic flanged bearings and a Hammerhead shifter for a BMW GS1200. All small welds. I used a longer pull on the front pivot to tighten up the shifting. The BMW linkage is way nicer than stock. My bike shifts snickety-snick like a sport bike.

The footpegs mounts are modified stock. Cut, lowered, sucked in way tighter than stock and re-welded. I used fabricated brackets to move the factory mounts forward one bolt hole (roughly 2.5"). The footpegs are from WildHair and can be rotated 22.5 degrees at a time through all 360 degrees. I have 3 different length arms.

The brake is actually 3 wrenches that are bent, welded and reattached. I calculated the lever ratios to emulate stock. The brake pad is a Hammerhead replacement part. I welded on extra taps so I can move the pedal forward or back 1.5" on the lever.

The return spring on the brake is a titanium valve spring from my KTM race bike.

With this, in 5 minutes with a 5mm Allen wrench and a 10mm open end wrench, I can go from cruise to twisty road ready.
