Pros: Nice chrome. Accepts male clevis foot pegs. Pretty simple assembly after the motor mounts are in place. They were not easy. Good price. The rear brake linkage is straight, it does not pivot on the MC mount like the other kit I was looking at. They look really good on the bike.
Cons: Only 2 things. No case bolts to replace the left side peg mount bolts, these should be included as the factory bolts are too long once the peg mount is removed and they are case bolts so you have to replace them. We used the bolts in the kit that are to replace the rear master cylinder mounting bolts. Other wise we would have had an oil leak at the bottom of the primary case. CC should just add 2 more of the same bolts already in the kit.
The shift lever stroke is a little long because the bottom arm of the shift lever where the linkage attaches is too short. It's not too bad, would be better if that arm was 1 inch longer.
Over all it is a very nice kit for the money. Every thing fit the bike very well. The wife is very happy.
Custom Chrome forward controls for my 00 Sporty were the best investment ever. Great look, feel, and relativley easy to install. Absolutley no issues, would highly recommend these forward control even after being leary about non-harley aftermarket products. Thanks Dennis Kirk
Excellent product, removal of the original mid controls were more time consuming than the installation of this kit. I was really impressed with the quality & fit and finish. I was most pleased that the design was based on the original Harley Davidson forward control design found on later models. I would recommend this product to anyone looking for quality at a great price. I liked the fast prompt service from Dennis Kirk staff. Free shipping was great too. I had my product within 4 days of placing the order.
Good chrome, SOLID feel, it was easy to put on, instructions were easy to follow. All in all a good product and easy to order. It was my first time ordering anything from Dennis Kirk... I am impressed. I have since ordered more stuff from Dennis Kirk and still not an issue. Custom chrome makes some good products and with Dennis Kirk it is a winning combination.
I spent a lot of time shopping for a set of high quality but affordable forward controls. This set met all my expectations and more. They are certainly as solid and well machined as anything made by Harley and a lot less expensive. About my only slight complaint was the limited directions. However, the drawing they supplied turned out to be all one needs, IF you take your time and study it well. I ordered separately a set of the Kurukyn extra wide iso-pegs (49-7065) and the final result was exactly what I had hoped for. The Sportster is now much more comfortable to ride giving me a feeling more like the old '74's I used to own. Oh, and btw, despite what others may say, they fit very nicely and do not interfere at all with my highway bars!
Installed them in about a total of 3 hours, it was the first time ever doing something like this. the hardest part was definitely pulling the old mid controls off. Definitely a much better ride now with these controls. I couldn't stand mid controls. Thanks a bunch.
