Supreme Legends forward controls
« on: Apr 17, 2017, 03:16:00 PM »
Purchased a used set of Supreme Legends forward controls and have a question for anyone that has them and some advice to anyone that gets them.

Question:  The amount of force required to apply the brake is about double what it was with the stock brakes, did anyone else notice this?  Not complaining much just different.

Advice:  In an attempt to get even more leg room I flipped the brackets left/right, lowering them somewhere in the range of 1/2" or so.
This bracket:

  In hindsight this was not a good idea as the brake side now scraps way to easy (for how I like to ride anyway), with no give its like hitting the frame on the ground.  Although the ground off material gave me a little more clearance I will be flipping them back ASAP, I didn't mind grinding the feelers off the stock pegs as they have give to them but don't like the feeling of grinding this down:



Love the looks and the position is spot on being 6'-4" and wish I did not have to raise them back up, but it is what it is.


Yes, I need to sweep the garage floor.   O8O

    Those look good man , but damn sure be careful dragging hard parts , being that close to the front tire you could wash it if you hit down to hard !
    Lean till it grinds , then lean some more ..

    No joke, that has me a bit concerned.  I may need to make some kind of feelers, scrapping hard parts by surprise is no fun.

      Only issue with attaching some feelers is your gonna cut your lean angle down even more :(

      Some curb feelers should do the trick   :)

      Yes, it's a drag!   Have to look pretty close to notice it though. 

      I sure hope that when I get them raised up they are up far enough, don't want to limit my cornering ability.

      The other issue I would worry about when dragging those is that they bolt directly to an aluminum frame. I'd worry you could break the mounting holes on the frame.

      I have Supreme Legends, love them.  I can't say I noticed any difference from the stock to the Legends in the braking.   I only rode the stock on test rides before I got my Raider and my Raider came with the Legends installed.  The time difference was about 4 months from test rides to delivery of my Raider.  Scraping 1K worth of controls is not my idea of a good time and as stated they bolt directly to the frame.  That could get very ugly, very quickly...  :yikes:

      don't think I would worry about breaking the frame  as,that would take a really hard hit, when scraping  it is usually  a gradual  hit but it sure does hurt on $1000 controls Ouch!

      Ya, I hate it, but not much I can do now, they are scrapped, fortunately I did not pay 1k for them   ;D

      I am most concerned about going into a corner and having it lift the front tire off the ground, not in a good way :wheelie:....   >:(

      I'm sure it won't, but that wouldn't stop me from worrying :)

      Flipped the brackets Sat and went for about an 80 mile ride and did not scrap, I didn't push it that hard but much past the point where is scrapped before flipping them.

      I need to get in in the yard and lean it over to see how far I can push it before it hits, then at least I will have an idea of when to start getting concerned in  the corners.
