Thanks, I saw those. I just want an extention kit. Not $800+ forward controls. Some of these aftermarket companies must cast these parts in gold. I'm by no means cheap, but give us a break.:rolleyes:

Sorry for the misunderstanding. I feel where you are coming from big time though. I have rough plans for my own homemade brackets, but not sure what to do about the break and shifter pedals :(

Defending our prices

Thanks, I saw those. I just want an extention kit. Not $800+ forward controls. Some of these aftermarket companies must cast these parts in gold. I'm by no means cheap, but give us a break.:rolleyes:
Our forward controls for the FURY start at $710.95, Accutronix parts are not cheap, however quality never is. Our parts are not for everyone & we are proud of that fact. There are several reasons for this & I would like to point out a few.
1) Accutronix items are CNC machined from 6061 T-6 billet aluminum in Phoenix Arizona USA.
2) When we purchase our raw billet, we request aluminum that was produced in the USA not over seas.
3) When we order our Stainless Steel or Chrome bolts we buy them from a bolt manufacturer in Mesa Arizona USA.
4) Your stock shifter & brake lever pivot on nylon bushings & this is normal for the after market industry too. However, Accutronix uses sealed roller bearings for the pivots because they are tighter, smoother & bullet proof compared to a nylon bushing.
5) Accutronix is the only one that has backing plates that bolt to the frame that are ¾” thick 6061 T-6 Billet Aluminum. Everyone else uses ½” & that works great, it just is not as durable or beefy looking as ¾”.
6) Our shift & brake arms are ½” thick 6061 T-6 Billet Aluminum, everyone else uses 3/8”.
7) The Anodizer we use is in Tempe Arizona USA.
8) The Chrome shops we use are in Phoenix Arizona USA, Tempe Arizona USA, Fresno California USA, & San Jose California USA.
9) Our Forward controls come complete with every nut, bolt, washer, hose & connection you need to install them. The only thing you need is a bike, brake fluid, & a few tools.
10) We have been in business for 25 years, so we will most likely be here if you ever need a replacement part.
11) All of employees are citizens of the USA.
12) You can call here & talk to me, the designer of these parts, & I speak English (and *******).
13) When I design a part, I am concerned with the QUALITY, safety, design, function & then the price. Many prototypes never go into production because we feel the price will exceed what the average American can justify.
14) When I design a part, I NEVER sacrifice quality to lower the cost of the item. I NEVER try to build the least expensive part on the market. I leave that to copy cats in Taiwan & China.
15) I never design a item similar to one that someone else is already making, unless I can greatly improve the quality.

I know I will catch hell over this posting, but at least I had the balls to post it. I know other vendors would like to but are sacred.

If having a high quality part manufactured in the USA at a fair & reasonable price is important to you, check out Accutronix

Thank you,
Troy

Damn Dude! It wasn't a personal attack. I happen to like many of the parts you make. And I understand you're in business to make a profit. YAY CAPITOLISM!!!

All you needed to post was rather or not you make an extention kit.

Worth ever penny!

I got the knurled diamond forward controls from Accutronix and I am so glad I did. With the grips and passenger pegs to match, this has been the best mod I have done so far!

Amen brother! Best mods on my bike period!

To stay on topic, no there is no extension kit for the stock forward controls, however, I wouldn't trust a kit with the way the stock controls are mounted. :eek: That's just asking for trouble :(

In an earlier post, someone asked about extensions & I answered them. I considered making extensions for the stock controls because I know our parts are not in everyone’s budget. I also know not everyone likes my designs. However, as stated before, extension plates did not look to me like a simple thing to make, as they should be. The master cylinder & brake arm mount inside the frame on a plate that is separate from the foot peg & bracket. I do not believe in moving the foot pegs & not the shift & brake arms so I was stumped on an inexpensive method. The shift side posed an issue because to keep the shift rod away from the engine the controls would have to go down & forward. This is not an option because the shift rod would hit the ground too easily. My extended controls use a bent ½” thick polished stainless steel shift rod, & this is not an inexpensive item. Therefore, to answer your original question professionally, I am sorry, but we do not have extension plates for the stock controls at this time.

If you come up with an idea, I will look at it & consider making them. I can also manufacturer private label items for you in quantity.

By the way, no offense was taken before. Should you want a set of our controls, I will even honor the discounted price that ended on the 4th of July.

I am going to try and make my own... and if [when :p] I fail I can't stop looking at the Accutronix Diamond forward controls.

I got as far as making a template out of acrylic sheet for the left peg bracket before the skeeters out here took more than their fair share of my blood :p

I am guessing *shrugs* this will put me forward about 5" at the pegs.... hope thats not too far for me lol... once I get the peg bracket things made up [Steel or Aluminum] I will get with my brother and an Uncle or 2 about the Shifter and Brake if the Pegs are within reach still :D

Moving the foot pegs is the easy part. Moving the shift & brake arms forward symmetrically is more of a challenge. You will also need to keep the geometry in mind so everything works as good or better in 10 years as it did the day it left the Honda factory.

I am not saying it cannot be done. However, I do not think a "clean" option will be much less expensive than purchasing a new set of controls.
