Forward control extensions????

i just bought these...
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...K%3AMEWNX%3AIT

Anyone use these or similar setups? I'm 6'4" and I need some more leg room.
I should get them in this week and I'll post before and after pics.

I've got em on mine. I really like em. I'm 5'10" 34" inseam It's a much better ride/fit for me. I've got the Stainless ones. They were a little sharp on the edges when I got them, went around them with a fine file once and put em on. Very simple to put on. Disconnect adjust rod, unbolt peg carrier, bolt on extension, bolt on peg carrier, re-adjust new rods. All told twenty minutes. One thing missing or needed, ty-raps for the brake switch wiring. Had to cut them to re-position then put new ones on.

Well, I got em on and I LOVE it. Here are some pics..

As they came out of the package


Stock gearshift side


Stock brake side


With extensions





All in all it took about 20-25 minutes, including getting the tools out. Easy as pie to install and seems pretty sturdy. The riding position now is awesome, I don't have to kick my knees out to get on the brake or shifter. All in all very worth the $50.

Mine are slightly different. While 6" extensions, mine are Stainless Steel. They kinda look like dirty chrome. I've noticed that when I put my weight on them to reposition my butt that they flex inward towards each other. Haven't put a whole lot of thought into it or even checked clearance but have thought of getting a stainless rod to thread and attach across both as a stiffener. Don't know if the stainless flex more then the painted. Anybody else noticed this?

I thought the same as you, but mine don't flex at all. The bracket is 3/8 or thicker. If you made a brace at the rear most bolt at the front it would probably clear.
