***Searching for FWD Controls***

***Searching for FWD Controls***

I've been looking EVERYWHERE for forward controls.  I'm fairly tall and would love 6" (more if I could find them).  Every single place I find online that sells them is out of stock/discontinued and has been for at least a couple of years.  I've found only one site that has them in stock but they are only 2" and I am really needing more than that.  Does anyone have or know of where to get them?  Or any company that might be able to custom manufacture some (I know, that route would be pretty darn expensive)?  Thanks ahead of time!

I've been looking for forward controls for a long time as well. I just checked SS Customs website this morning and it looks like the are taking orders for a December production run. I sent an email to find out if this is correct and also find out the length as it does not specify on the website.

I have the SS customs 6" FC. I like them, they work well, seem to be a quality piece and for only $200 the best deal out there. Put yourself on the order list.

I second what Alpha says, the SSCC 6" kit is where it's at. Turned it into a totally different ride for me, a better ride. Get on the list, it is well worth the wait and the price tag!

Hi
Building one yourself it is not too difficult...
If you have an angle grinder,a drill, a tap die and not too demanding about the final result...
Now I am out of the country but if you wait a while I can post some pictures of mine home made...
I have had them on for about 5 years and 40000 km and 0 issues.
If you are interested I will give you more details in the near future.
Ciao.
