I need them. 36" inseam. Not a choice its a must. I am sure whoever gets them done first will have a burst of initial sales to help make it more appealing.

I like the idea but probably not the price. Most forward control sets are around $600. That is too steep for me. I am looking for an alternative to $600.

$600 to $1000 depending on what you get. We are looking at two ways of doing it now. One is to move the stock controls forward a bit but the brake side may be a problem, the other is making our own controls from the scratch. This will put in in the $600+ range. ::) As soon as we put out some of our other fires we can getting moving on these and some risers with a little more pullback.

I hope to have my airbox back from the powdercoaters this week. :doorag:

I would be up for something that moved the stock pegs forward also... especially as a temporary fix to a good set of forward controls... I bought my last set for my roadstar while a sale was on for $400 ... So... I won't buy the first set that comes out if someone wants to charge and arm and a leg for them... but just like the corbin seats, i am sure there are some that will ::)

I might be interested in moving the controls say maybe 2-2.5" forward (34" inseem).... but do not currently have the extra money to pay for them... it will be a couple months before i can consider anything in that price range...

6'7" and would like to go about 4" or so forward. Would be willing to pay if they are nice looking and flow with the bike. Love the bike and this is the only mod that I NEED! The rest I just wanted :D

De-badged, Kuryakyn Stiletto grips and pegs, Kuryakyn mirrors, Bungee buttons (well 3 of 4, one of the nuts on the back is stripped need to get another today), Tank Bag.

Considering the engine guards to get some highway pegs out there until the forward controls come out but not sure if I want to go with that look.

I made my own, by simply moving the stock one's forward. I decided on going 3 inches forward & half inch down. Gotta cutting tool & a meg. welder? The hardest part is deciding how far forward you want to go :D. Theres just enough heavy cast metal there to accomodate a good 3 inches. Heck I could'nt be happier & did'nt pay a dime :bigthumbsup: to bad I still can't post my pictures but most have responded to my email :joke: [email protected] (no C in quik) ::)evryone seems to overlook the C thingy lol. I've also asked those who seen my pictures to go ahead & post them......... but they must be keeping this all top secret :joke: I'm sorry man.......... but I'm having fun riding the only 109 with extra leg room :D ..... next I'm making a 2 inch riser for the handle bars outa billet aluminun stock :bigthumbsup:
