Forward foot controls

Hey forum- I’ve found a little custom shop online - in Thailand.. who build forward controls. They have quoted me aud$600 delivered to Australia. Anyone heard of a more legit solution?
I’m tall and need more room!

Depretto Moto in Italy.

One member here already has them installed and recommends them. I have them as well, just haven't had a chance to install them yet... will be a project for this weekend.

So the install of the DPM forward controls seemed a bit more involved than I was comfortable with, so I made an appointment at the dealer to have them installed.

Appointment is Friday morning, but I dropped the bike off just a few minutes ago because it's supposed to rain Thursday and Friday... figured I'd save myself at least one trip in the rain lol.

Finally got around to taking some pics of the results.

I gotta say, riding comfort is drastically improved... my legs are no longer cramped with the mid controls, it's a much more relaxed riding posture, and the giant cover on the right side that interferes with your leg position is no longer an issue.

Well worth the money!

Any chance of getting a pic with someone on the bike? Really curious to see how the leg position changed. Could be a game changer for this bike, leg position and seat are the only things holding me back from viewing this a long term keeper.

I'm curious how you feel about these forward controls now that you've had some time.

Well worth the money, in my opinion.

I never did post more pics, but someone else beat me to it in another thread.

Good to know. I sat on a Vulcan s with forward controls and thought they were swell. If I could get this bike comfortable enough I just might keep it for a long time. I might place an order for that and a seat soon.
