Forward control search..

So I am slowly knocking off my parts list for my winter build. I thought parts were expensive when I did my Rocker C build but this one is turning out to be far worse. Anything aftermarket is crazy $$$ it seems.

Anyone know anyone new making a black forward extended control for under $400 or maybe someone I missed? I don't need the brake pedal or shifter arm as I just bought a set of powdercoated ones of the famous powdercoater Tyson on here, lol. I know there is a forum member on here that builds a more extensive unit for around $500 but since I already ordered the other parts I only need a basic system.

I see Vmod has a simple looking option on their site but it lists for $429? A complete mid control setup from them is only an extra 70$.

Any help or assistance would be appreciated.

Jay brake is close to where I live so I like to point people there. I bet if you called them and told em what you need they may help. They make nice custom parts.

Well Jake Brake is out, they sent me a message saying they do NOT have an extended system for the V-rod models and they do NOT do custom work. They made sure to put an emphasis on NOT both times...

Anyone else have any suggestions?

The NH Power ones look nice, I had looked on their site previously but no prices were listed and I had thought the last time they had them on Ebay they wanted just under the $500 mark???


I think I mentioned above but not sure, I am 6'2" and the bike came with reduced reach pegs. My other question is, does anyone think the factory mounts that go straight out from the attachment would be enough?? I am going with a custom rear fender and solo seat so I will be sitting back quite a bit further then what I am now. Really would like the extended but I can pick up the straight out factory ones shipped here for around $90, maybe less, as opposed to the $500 with shipping and customs for the Vmod ones.

I am the guy that makes the controls. I don't know of any other company in the US that makes the extended controls. If you have 2012+ I don't think there is anybody anywhere that does it. The $429 set on vmod is by far the biggest rip off I have seen. It relocates your pegs and gives you extension for the brake and shift rod. It also sticks the pegs out an extra inch which makes your lean angle even worse. Reversing reduced reach pegs work to move you feet out a little bit but it doesn't move the brake pedal or the shift peg. This means you have to take your foot off the peg (unless you are really flexible) to use the brake or shift. I did post a little while ago about a less expensive set of controls that I have designed but no one seemed interested. I was trying to cut costs without cutting quality or functionality. I came up with this :



I was shooting for the $450 shipped range, but if you wanted to be the first we could work out something if you can give me some good pics. Email me at keithmcelhinney@hotmail.com if you are interested.

BTW the normal ones are $535 shipped. They use more material and have more machining. The arm comes out to the new peg location instead of going straight.

Thanks for the offer Keith. I actually just came across and made purchase on a set of your used forward controls so I am good to go. Quality looks top notch, can't wait to get them mounted.

Awesome man! Any problems installing give me a shout. Make sure you do NOT use the stock bolt that holds the controls into the frame! If you don't get them with your set I will send you some.

Thanks for the heads up Keith, I will definitely order some off you if they aren't in the package. Can't wait to get them and put them on, should make a world of difference.
