 +It is very difficult to find forward controls for 79-on IronHeads. ((IronMick of the XLFORUM http://​xlforum.net/​forums/​showthread.php?​p=3404986&​highlight=forwards#​post3404986)) \\
 +Whatever you get they must mount between the front exhaust and the case, not in front of the front exhaust. \\
 +It is unlikely that you would find some specific for your model. \\
 +You will most likely have to get something and modify them. \\

 +===== Shift Lever =====
 +1957-1974 shifter shafts had no splines. ((Moon Wolf of the XLFORUM http://​xlforum.net/​forums/​showthread.php?​t=2069707&​highlight=forwards&​page=3)) \\
 +Non splined levers: \\
 +The levers are designed to slip to protect the transmission. ((Moon Wolf of the XLFORUM http://​xlforum.net/​forums/​showthread.php?​p=5675360&​highlight=forwards#​post5675360)) \\
 +On early Ks the shaft is splined, but the early transmissions broke a lot and in some cases as a result of down force on the shift lever. \\
 +The smooth shaft that allows the lever to slip is supposedly one the fixes Harley implemented to address that problem. \\
 +If you have slippage on a non splined shift lever, you can get a needle from a U joint, mic it and get a drill bit that size. ((72 Ironhead XLH of the XLFORUM http://​xlforum.net/​forums/​showthread.php?​p=5675360&​highlight=forwards#​post5675360)) \\
 +Then put the lever in the position you want, drill a hole horizontally,​ not vertically, insert the pin and tighten the bolt. \\
 +You can also drill and tap for machine set screw vertical or horizontal. ((bustert of the XLFORUM http://​xlforum.net/​forums/​showthread.php?​p=5675360&​highlight=forwards#​post5675360)) \\
