Mid-control parts list

With the mid-control conversion kit being discontinued and made of unobtanium, has anyone put together a parts list to DIY?

Anyone in the Atlanta area with a mid-control '08+ bike I could do a side-by-side comparison with?

Same boat here. I stumbled upon this...

But it is ungodly expensive to get it from Japan - if you can that is. Wondering if a local machine shop can replicate.

I have a full factory mid control kit that I'm saving for a rainy day project.
I can crack it open and photograph the parts.

I just swapped my mid controls for forward controls, you'll need the mid controls obviously, right side motor mount for mids because the brake control mounts to it, brake line/switch from foot control to rear brake, brake master cylinder and the clutch rod that connects clutch pedle to clutch.

mid kit

Go here for instructions how to mount and complete parts list:
https://serviceinfo.harley-davidson....2?locale=en_US

I had my Harley parts guy price every piece for a complete kit. The parts are available separately but cost over $1000! I searched everywhere for a kit for 8 -9 months (called dealers thoughtout US) before stumbling on a kit on ebay for $160. I bought it in a heartbeat and love it.

I installed myself - not too bad. Also you DO have to buy the brake line recommended in the instructions ($180). I tried to cheap out and had a line made for $50. Brake didnt work and felt like air in the lines so I chased that for weeks but it was the line I had made all along. After all this time I feel I'm a mid control kit expert.

Also depending on the exhuast the brake pedal has a good chance in hitting the pipe. I brought mine to a fabricator and told him what I needed done, we discussed ideas and he wound up cutting the pedal using round stock to space it out (for pipe clearance) and welding back together. The guy did a phenominal job, can't notice the mod. I was standing on the pedal and have absolute confidence that its NEVER going to break (not brake - it brakes great!) charged me $50 - also a Harley rider -lol. Good luck in your search. World of difference in comfort and handling with mids while retaining the forward pegs if I want to stretch out

PS: I have ABS model and needed the line from the master clyinder to abs unit - order Harley's part for that
