Calling anyone who has installed the Accutronix EXTENDED forward controls.

I would like to get these but I stand 5'7 (although I do have long legs for my height).

Wanted to know how accessible or how much further your legs are extended from the stock controls?

Thanks,
Mickey
Thinking about this myself... but I am taller... thought the extended forward controls were for the reach of the "toe" basically, 3 inches added onto the brake or clutch bar (not the forward reach) and not an "extension" like you'd typically think necessarily... That's what it looks like from the pics for the most part... But, guess that's why I'd like an explanation as well, so that I can choose more wisely...

Forgot to mention my height!, I'm 6'1 and here's a pic of my extended forwards.
You forgot the slash in your {/img}, looks good btw in black! & ah, think the 3" extended would work best for me then... My foot goes slightly numb on long rides with the stock controls...

I'm a tad over 6'; not quite 6'1", and I have the Accutronix extended forward controls. I have around a 34 inseam. the stock pedals were an inch or so too close, but the extended are a little too far for where I'd exactly like them. The footpeg part is fine, but toe-ing the rear brake I find I have to shift slightly forward, to where the muscle movement is coming somewhat from the calf, as opposed to just forward/downward with the foot. It's quite doable, but I find myself constantly wishing I could get the things an inch closer to me at the base. (I've adjusted the arm up along the splines as far as I can to bring it closer, but there's limits to how close you can bring it.)

Alternatively, I'd suggest considering Raw's adjustable set. They adjust fully at the base 1-3", as well as along the circular spline thingy's, so are truly adjustable. And yah, I like Troy's styling's better too, but Raw's don't look bad and that adjustability will start to look really good if you find you've got a non-adjustable set you just can't quite get in the right position.

Wish to hell someone would fabricate a forward control relocator plate or something that'd let you move them around a bit ...
CBFury was R&D'ing one for one of the vendors, he got it done and it's on his bike. It's not too shabby actually, but the vendor has not pursued it any further as of yet. It was a kit, that used like a 1/2' aluminum bracket and extended controls in order to give it the extension to it... came in different sizes too, all for only like 300$ with a stock turn in... wasn't bad.
