I got my stock controls installed and man do I like them...I ordered a new shifter arm with the intention of adding an extention to it, but some one had given me a shifter off of a night hawk, it has a bend in it that brings the peg over and out more, so no modding is needed...I know Im about 15 years late to the party but Im learning....

I love the stock controls, too. One of the first things I did to my 1500 was take the footboards and heel/toe shifter off, and replace it all with stock controls. SO much better, and quite comfortable.

Bingo, did the same thing after trying to actually shift my bike............ hard!
Said to myself, I NEED STOCK FOOT PEGS FOR THIS BIKE! Put them on and will
NEVER go back to floorboards on this ride for sure. Smooth shifting without a miss, and
the stock pegs allow my foot to actually point down a bit on the peg. Much more natual
