  • This mod uses standard mid controls and slaved forward controls and was made using Drag Specialties forwards.
  • Either set will work in tandem (smoothly and cleanly) as they should for both braking and shifting.
  • You can use the forwards for comfort on long rides and the mids for the twisties with the forwards folded up.
  • You can also use the passenger pegs on the mids for about an inch wider foot stance.
  • Two things to watch for:
    1. The angle of the hole you drill in your shifter. Set up the front first then mark, drill and tap it.
    2. Use a minimum of grade 5 bolt through the heim joint into the shifter since you DO NOT want that bolt to bend.

  • Brake side (R):
A two hole bracket was fabricated to connect the forward control brake rod to the stock brake plunger.
The two holes were drilled and tapped for the brake rods 3)
