You can try L&R Extremes... Lee is a good guy although he is a little upset with me right now but that is between him and I... He used my bike to mock up some for the Fury. He just askes that you send him you old brake lever so he will charge you a core on it until yours arrives. I can not remember who else is running the L&R forward controls but I like the fact that there is no rear brake master cylinder swap. Google L&R Extreme and hit him up... not sure what the price is but I am sure it will be more than half of what the others are charging.

Sorry... I do not have any good current pics of the forward controls.

I've got a set of Supreme Legends for my ABS fury that I will put on soon.
Great product and I like the matching grips and pillion pegs.

I'll do a review and post up pictures just as soon as I find time to put them on.

Accutronics and supreme legends are the only 2 currently, L&R i believe is just a spacer plate. I am thinking about building some ground up forwards using harley parts, but gotta order everything.

I know there are a few but I have accutronix and can swear by them
Other then the little snaff-u of the bolt not fitting, i swear by mine as well. Now that my feet are pushed forward another 3 inches ... the ride has become so much better. My knees dont hurt from taking a pounding and being at a 90 degree angle. My ass and groin dont hurt either. I have found that the seat is more comfortable now that im sitting in it more, rather then on it. Yeah, they are expensive, but are so worth it if your over 6'1".

BTW .. HeartLand Honda did have a summer sale for 20% off retail. Accutronix was also offering a sale of 30% off retail.

my stupid question:
I'm 5-8 and my feet hit the pegs just fine. other than looks, is there any reason a guy my size needs to change/upgrade forwards?

btw, Bill, those are very nice looking forwards.

Mid controls would be what your looking for, slightly different positioning like kicking your feet out a little more are about all they would offer, possibly a better master Cyl. Other than that asthetics are all they would really add

I ride with a group of guys that belong to the legion riders club. of the american legion. any way after taking a look at the factory harley forwards. and talking to one guy who works at a machine shop, we came up with the idea of making brackets to mount up some oem harley units. I picked up some nice used ones from a guy that had put aftermarket on his bike. for less then 100 bucks. cant beat that. now all im waiting on is time to fab up some mounts.

They extended the sale another month, nice!
The funny thing about that is they have been extending it from day one.
That is what they always sell it for.:D

well now, I finally get the extended forwards requirement you taller folk have been chatting about. a bud of mine sat on Ms. Fury yesterday and his 6'-4" frame had his knees pulled in with no stretch.

He said it and I have to agree: "I'd spend the $650 in a heart beat!"

This and the V2s were the best investment i made for the Fury. Both my knees ached after short rides ( 20 miles ). Install the Accutronix, and no more problems.

During one of my longer rides today, i tried to stretch out and hang my heel on the most forward peg, and could just reach. I didnt like the feeling of being off balance, so that didnt last long.

all my whining about the long reach of the bars and here are you guys who can reach the bars but the forwards are too close in.

I couldn't reach the bars until i got the Cannella's but the forwards are perfect for my 5-8 size.
Man, who was the body type they built this baby for in the first place?

It was designed to fit the "averaged-sized" American, which describes your heigth exactly.

Cheers
