Wow a blue one, don't see that everyday. Cool.No problem, guys. It wasn't my idea though, I got it from someone on this board about 6 months ago.
Here are some pictures but there's not really much to see. Like I said, it's just the reversal of the original setup.
Shaggy, I wish cause I scoped out my buddies DX and the Harley straight ones are quite a bit closer to the frame and with my "extra" exhaust pipe on the left it's not gonna be a straight up swap.If you just want to go to straight supports use the one from the regular vrod they are straight. Hell I might even make a swap deal for you my straights for your offsets if you are interested. I want the offset ones to flip them around and give me the extra legroom.
Curios What if instead of lengthening the mount what if you get longer pegs like Harley part 49500-92T they say not for Vrod but that is because of dragging them not because they won't mount up.Shaggy, I wish cause I scoped out my buddies DX and the Harley straight ones are quite a bit closer to the frame and with my "extra" exhaust pipe on the left it's not gonna be a straight up swap.
I would like to score a straight set and strip the chrome, carefully mahine the part in half and weld in a piece then blend and rechrome but jesus that's a lot of work but this might be the year.
this helped my riding stance tremendously!just swap them around. If you take the right foot peg holder and switch it with the left it will give you about two more inches of reach. You have to take the whole foot peg off (the silver part and the actual foot peg) but leave the foot peg "in place" while switching the silver piece. It's kind of hard to explain but if you go out and look again you can figure it out.
After you swap the footrest holder, you have to rotate them 180 degrees and voila, about 2 inches of reach.
...wow! What a difference that made. Well it took a little longer than 20 minutes to swap around because once I finally got them off I realized that I needed to get after them with the Blue Magic metal polish.I'm 6'5" and have been wondering about how to get more reach. I'm doing this before I ride today. Thanks for posting and I'll let you all know how it works out.
no idea on break but most dont find it too much of a problem. i dont and only use the rear 5 % of the time anyway.This worked out great, what a difference. Anyone adjust the brake pedal, and or shifter peg. Would appreciate a heads up on how to do it. Thanks
