Foot control options
« on: Mar 11, 2021, 01:03:36 am »
I bought a laid down raider got it all fixed up and have been riding little over a year now but uncomfortably.You see try as I may I've not been able to find a suitable replacement for the current foot controls as they're some form of aftermarket which forcese to stretch out more than I enjoy.Without buy all the replacements from yamaha is there another option in aftermarket? Or will I be force to have something machined?
It's a 2008 xv1900s
I appreciate any advice or assistance

    Is it possible the previous owner added control extensions?  Post a pic and let's have a look.

    Post a picture if you can - you might be able to find someone on here that has the OEM brackets and linkage that they aren't using anymore

      It doesn't look like an extension but definitely not a stock piece.
      Now I did modify them but putting on the black pegs so I can reach them. Aside from that everything else is as I got it.

      They are nice but just too stretched out for me I'm only 5'7" even with my boots on I have almost no bend in the knee. I tried making a bracket to bring them back a little but they're as far back as I can go with the exhaust and trans case.without going wider I'm stuck unless another company or such has aftermarket stock replacments

      There's got to be someone out there that has the OEM controls laying in their garage.

      By the looks I would say that a machine shop can make you another adaptor plate without a problem. You probably have to shorten the linkage and put a new thead in there. But for some competent metal workers no problem I guess, and you can keep those controls. They look good (and expensive). good luck.

      I have Kuryakyn SwingWing foot pegs and 1000% recommend them! I LOVE THEM! They allow for multiple foot riding positions, parrallel, 45 degrees, and flopped on its side on top for full recliner mode! I keep them open when riding and close them when parked. I am 5'8" and I can have my legs fully extended on highway riding with my boots on the top outer portion. Check them out, just make sure you get the adaptor for our Raider to go between the pegs and the bike.

      This is all subject to the rider.  My wife has Swing Wing pegs on her Stryker and I needed to ride her Stryker while my bike was being painted and new wheels put on. I am 6' 2" and I scraped her pegs all the time because they stuck out so far. I was considering getting them on my new Raider at the time, but after trying them on hers found they didn't work for me.
