Foward Controls?

Postby DragonRider » Tue May 31, 2011 3:08 pm



I am 6' 2" and when I ride I like to have my legs up on the foot pegs I have on my engine guards.
I have been thinking about putting all my controls up there (shifter on left foot and a updated master cyl mounted on right engine guard. does anyone think this can work?
Also can I replace my front brake master Cyl with a new one (say from a H/D Sportster)?

i love riding with my feet on front pegs, legs stretched out.. I am 6'3" and it only makes sense to add forward controls..
I am riding 79 gl1000 and have been looking for a set myself
thanks for the post
