Hi guys,

I really want to buy the 2,5 inch forward controls from supremelegendsusa but I'm unsure if the forwards are compatible with my european abs fury.

http://www.supremelegendsusa.com/in...nda/fury/new-honda-fury-forward-controls.html

Bill from supremlegends suggested that I should ask a honda dealer.
At the moment they are closed here, I thought seeing a honda technician on the fury forums?

Can anyone confirm if the extended forwards are (im)possible on the abs fury?

I don't think there will be a problem as the ABS master cylinder doesn't look to special to me. I can't see any wires coming out of it so I don't think it is used in the ABS circuit.

I have my controls on order with Bill so I'll find out for sure when I get them on.

Gar has the workshop manual & an ABS bike so perhaps he can comment.

NEW! Honda Fury Forward Controls - Fury - Honda - Metric - Products

I questioned a Honda dealer about this. He contacted Honda’s tech line & discussed it with them. They both feel that there would be no issue using Accutronix forward controls in either the standard length or in the +3” extended length on a ABS equipped FURY. I’m not a 100% familiar with the Supreme Legends kit, but I would think it would be ok too.

Today i've contacted my honda dealer, they told that whenever you must change the master cylinder chances are very big that it won't work.

They added its difficult to be 100% sure without seeing the parts in real life.

So can anyone send me for free the forwards :D , then ill let them be checked on my bike..

Send me your bike. I'll install a set of controls, put 50,000 miles on it testing them & let you know the results.

Allow me to add to the speculation :rolleyes:. I expect that the established forward controls will work but the pedal travel may be increased and the amount of that increase will most likely be determined by the first early adopter ;). The caveat here is that you don't want any stroke increase to bring you unsafely close to the limit of piston travel :(.
The Honda M/C is 5/8” as is mine & I bet Supreme legends is too, Bill would know. Therefore the pedal travel should not be changed, IMHO.

Our M/C has been used on Harleys with a one, two, four, and six piston calipers with no issues. Several people have used our rear brake to operate both the front & rear brake & did not have a separate front brake lever. However, these were not daily riders but weekend ridden customs. There could be an issue when the pads are shot on both calipers & both calipers are multiple piston calipers. However, the stock system may fail with wore out pads too.

I have not seen an ABS fury yet so I an only guessing and I’m putting a lot of faith in the Honda tech line guy.

Accutronix forewards control with ABS

I just thouth I would let the forum know I have installed the 3" extended forward control from Accutronix on my ABS Fury. I then went to my Honda powerhouse dealer and had the brakes bled and inspected last night.The service tech whent for a short ride when it was complete and could not stop complementing the forward controls. I then whent for a ride myself for about 25 Miles mostly highway. I thought the braking system worked fine. I still need to dial in the peg possition but other than that it seems to work just like it did before but look and feel much better. I only have about 3000 miles on it so far so the brakes are fairly new. I will keep posting feedback after I have had them a while.

So abs is still working on the back wheel with the same pressure applied?
Did you actually try a full stop with abs engaged? Feels the same?

Like I said I rode the bike home and the braking system seems to work just like it did before. I had to ride the bike to the shop with the back break not bled properly. There was very little pressure on the back brake and I could feel it only cathing up front. After they bleed the brakes I could tell the back was engaging properly and could hear the front activating as well.
I have not had time yet as it was installled last night to go to a parking lot and practice an emergency brake to make sure the ABS was working properly.
I will try and do this soon and give some feedback.

I just phoned my dealer again and mentioned there are concerns on the forum. They are getting irratated with me and told me to get off the forum and ejoy the bike.

You stated that you did not know how to bleed the brake system correctly, so you took the bike to the dealer to have the system bleed after you did the install. I really don’t think your dealer would have let you ride off on your bike if there was a brake problem, do you? Because they are the last ones to work on the brakes, they are somewhat responsible for the brake performance. I have never been in a shop that did not test ride a bike after a brake system repair to verify the systems performance. Therefore, I agree with your dealer, go enjoy your bike before it snows!

Well then perhaps I'll order my forwards in a few months at accutronix :)
