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.

      Understand.  Dunno how much you dropped on the bike but....in for a penny, in for a pound!   Good luck
