Forward controls

My 2012 vstar 950 has engine bars. I am tall 6’2” and I’m moving the foot board controls up 3” with the Phoenix kit. Very simple add.
I will have to remove the engine guards for this to work.
My question are there any engine bars that will work once I make the 3” forward upgrade??
Anyone have both the forward control foot boards and engine bars ?? Maybe peg forward controls with engine bars.

Basically I would like to have the crash bars and forward controls 3”- 4”.

i know for a fact that you cannot use 3" forward controls with the Yamaha big bar engine guards. but you can modify them by drilling extra mounting holes which turns them into 1.5" forward controls which should then fit.
