Homemade Forward Extensions

Using a Fabbed Extension Plate

This mod gained about 4“ forward and about 1.5” out to side.
A longer stainless steel rod was threaded to link to the longer controls.

2 brackets were fabricated. 1)Then the OEM brackets were bolted on. 2)Finished assembly. 3)

Modding Dyna Highway Peg Brackets

In order to accomplish this mod, you need to have pipes that do not obstruct the front frame area. 4)
There is a 3“ extension piece on either side of the frame connected at the original foot peg position.
Then, there is a horizontal piece welded in between those two extensions for strength.
This solves two things; putting the controls 3” out and 1/4“ - 1/2” up.

Then, you have to deal with the brake bar.
Since the pegs are now 3“ forward, it won't fit or the brake pedal would be underneath the peg.
The one below was cut and 3” of steel was welded in the middle then heat wrap was installed over the whole bar.

On the shifter side, a long chrome bar was cut to length and re-threaded for a linkage. 5)

They're expensive but very good quality.
They are made for an FXR but they have an adaptor for them to fit the Sportser.
In addition, a 4” extension plate had to be purchased from another company along with a longer, adjustable shift rod from J&P Cycles.
Total cost was about 800 bucks.

Jaybrake provided the black tubes (the adaptors) that come out of the frame and attaches to the extension plate.
