Hello!
 Shot in the dark before I purchase forward foot controls, anyone looking to trade my c-spec foot controls for r-spec in the Vancouver BC area?

Thanks

Where where you when I needed this - I bought R spec controls - but well, R spec stuff is pretty abundant - its the install that's actually the hardest - In any case, C spec and SCR are the same and they total up to 10% of R spec by sales.
However on the used market, that also means 10X the parts from crashed R pecs about than C or SCR.
That means C spec to R spec better off buying junkyard stuff from junkyards that don't do "1/2 of retail" BS. I was lucky enough to have one of those 20 miles away, so I saved 20 or so shipping.

But if supply and demand run the world, R spec parts from wrecked bikes would be a lot cheaper, C spec stuff is much rarer and hence more $ and c spec riders wanting R spec is about the same numbers as r wanting to C.
For my taste, I don't want C or R - I want - both. Depends on mood. I want both LOL.

I seem to definitely not want an SCR - except the long wires and cables of the SCR let me put any handlebar I like on it - so there's the biggest merit of the SCR.

Cool.
Srinath.
