Has anyone already tried to install extended forward controls on an abs fury?

Ok so you more or less confirm that the available forwards are not compatible with the abs bike?

Do you have an estimate of the price and time when it's available for the less fortunate people? ;-)

OK, I have been trying to keep this under my hat until I have them on and can do a full write up but yes you need some changes for the ABS bike.

My Dad who is a retired mechanical engineer did some calculations and I worked with Bill from Supreme Legends to make up the first set of extended forward controls for the ABS Fury. So my bike is going to be the "test case".

I'll tell all just as soon as I get them on. ;)

Wow great, a few weeks ago I inquired with bill from sl about the fwcontrols on an abs bike. But he couldn't verify if it would really work with our abs version.

I'm happy to hear that a set is going to be realized somewhere soon!
Im I correct that supreme legend will deliver an adjusted version?

Have been thinking about it with options from a shop my buddy owns. He came up with an idea that would work for ABS and non-ABS. If you modify the OEM brake pedal then you can mount a linkage to an aftermarket brake pedal. It would amount to a standard set of forwards with no master cyl, and cutting down and bending the oem lever over to allign with the brake tab (on FWDS) that would normally mount to the master cyl. then a rod to connect the two parts.

We'll all know when I get them on. However I'm confident my Dad got the calculations right, after 40 years in the petrochemical industry and a Masters Degree in Engineering I think he knows what he's doing.

Great idea! Would this work with extended forwards?

it should, its just a basic lever system. All you would have to do is take a plate, drill it out for Mounts on the bike and a clevis, and the shaft the brake/shift lever would pivot on, put the pedal on, mod the OEM brake lever to allign with the tab for the brake pedal assembly then have a linkage for them. If you look at this pic you can see where it ties in to the master Cyl, you would just do away with the master cyl and have a rod running back from it to moded lever from OEM brake instead of forward.

The primary concern here with available forward control sets is matching the ABS master cylinder output which may (or may not) be critical. The ABS master has a different part number and operates three caliper pistons, two rear and one front, instead of only one piston as on the standard Fury. I do not know how much increase in total piston area there is but I'm betting there is some. This affects the master push-rod/pedal travel so that the ABS model likely has a larger piston to keep travel similar on both models.

If, for argument sake, the three caliper pistons have twice the area of the single piston and you use forward controls calibrated for the standard Fury you may end up with a noticeable increase in pedal travel that may be unsafe ;).

Yes there is a difference in the master cylinder and yes the piston is larger. I had Bill from Supreme Legends make up a master cylinder especially for the ABS fury. After I get them on I will let you know how it goes and if it works as we expect then I think Bill will probably make them available for other ABS owners. At this stage the ones he made for me, were made to my specification, so in effect I am the "beta tester" of the prototype.:D

Man I hope that its finished soon, that supreme legends will quickly be able to deliver the goods :)
