Forward controls for XV's ["NO LONGER AVAILABLE"]

Post by choppin » Mon Jul 13, 2015 11:13 am

Hi, my name is Rich. I have been fabricating forward controls and selling them on Face Book, and also on Virago Tech Forum. These are a bolt on kit with only a modification to the brake pedal arm. The highway bars must be removed for the attachment. The kit will fit all 700 thru 1100 models. Will not fit the 535"s and smaller. The cost is $250.00 plus shipping. I use PayPal for the transactions. If any question's please PM me for more details

They look fantastic man! I would have bought a set if I didn't get the Mapam's on ebay. Have you ever considered making a jockey shift setup for the Virago?

Thought about it a little. Think there is a demand? Would the clutch lever be on the left foot peg? I could maybe if I had some prints or plans. Send me something with you idea.

Rich (choppin),
I think XVRacerik is thinking more on the lines of something like these with a Hand Clutch:

Do I have that right Rick a.k.a. (XVRacerik)

For starters, we need a reply button on each posting admin.
I was thinking very much like Joe's 2nd pic but with a foot operated clutch. I'm not an artist so I wouldn't even be able to start drawing anything, thanks Joe.

Keep the shiny side up :)

there is a box wit " in it. That allows you to reply to a specific post while quoting it. If this is not what you mean then could you be more specific?

It's not clear that you can post without making a quotation, at least it wasn't to me the first time I hovered over it. Perhaps just a button that says reply rather than an icon?

Keep the shiny side up :)
