 +====== Running Forward Controls and Mid pegs ======
 +Article by MotoRacerGabe of the XLFORUM ((http://​xlforum.net/​forums/​showthread.php?​t=1587864)) \\
 +
 +The bike below (2012 XL1200V) came with forward controls and mid pegs were added for more foot positions. \\
 +The mid pegs add more leverage when at higher speeds and in cornering. \\
 +It also adds for a greater amount of foot positions (from riding on the toes on the mid pegs or having your heels on the forwards. \\ 
 +
 +Normally, it wouldn'​t be possible to add mid pegs with forward controls due to the brake linkage for the forward controls. \\
 +The left side mid peg bolted right up. \\

 +
 +The right side wasn't really that hard to make work. \\
 +All you have to do is put a space between the mid-mount and where it screws into the frame. \\
 +You'll have to measure how much space is needed. \\
 +In the pic below, two matching nuts were used as spacers. \\
 +However, the distance was still a tad too short to clear the brake linkage completely. \\
 +So the linkage was hitting the mount. Then, two thick washers were added to them to give the mount some more space. \\
 +You can see in the first pic below where the linkage was rubbing against the mount and took off the black paint. \\
 +With an additional washer it didn't not touch. \\

 +====== Crash Bar Pegs ======
 +This Engine Guard Peg Mounting Kit (50964-98) was purchased from the dealership for installing pegs on crash bars (engine guard). \\
 +Three piece design with tiny Allen head screws. \\
 +

 +
 +You have to install the center piece onto 1 long piece, slide that onto the bar and then install the second long piece. \\
 +It will still be loose until you mount the peg clevis to it. This pulls both ends together and tightens around the bar. \\
 +It can be mounted as shown or swung forward for a longer reach. \\

 +====== Aftermarket Heel Rest ======
 +These were purchased off Ebay but should be pretty simple to put together or make from scratch. \\
 +

 +
 +These clevis'​ came from the highway bar kit above and have internal 1/2" (fine) threads. You may need to buy a couple 1/​2"​x20 bolts to cut to size. \\
 +Install the peg on the clevis as normal and run a 3/8" bolt thru the clevis into the heel rest bracket. \\
 +
 +{{:​techtalk:​ref:​body:​aftermarket_heel_rest_5_by_hippysmack.jpg?​direct&​300|}} ((photo by Hippysmack)) {{:​techtalk:​ref:​body:​aftermarket_heel_rest_6_by_hippysmack.jpg?​direct&​300|}} ((photo by Hippysmack)) {{:​techtalk:​ref:​body:​aftermarket_heel_rest_7_by_hippysmack.jpg?​direct&​300|}} ((photo by Hippysmack)) \\
 +
 +Then just snug all the bolts, position the assembly where you want it and tighten the bolts. \\
 +The brackets are very solid when done and the heel rest works good on long rides. \\
