Scootmods before and after pics.

Finally got around to posting up some pics. I installed a set of Scootmods tribal controls with smooth pegs to stretch out my ride a bit. Overall I am satisfied although they need a bit more tweaking- definitely not a bolt and ride application. I was also surprised that I needed to custom fit this product since it was supposedly made for my make and model year. I needed to extend the both sides considerably. Both linkage rods were too long. Fortunately I was able to gather some hardware and modify other materials laying around to make the controls work. The brake side still needs to be extended a bit outwards because my right leg hits the aircleaner and is a bit awkward to apply the rear brakes. All in all they are pretty cool and I enjoy the added reach (@6" over factory with my homemade extension). But as mentioned before, I still need to address the brake side issue- applying rear brake gives me random foot cramps do to the awkward positioning issue. I have spaced the control 1/2" outward so far. Need about another inch or so. Not griping, just offering an honest analysis- Anyway here are the pictures:

Hey Brother,a small suggestion on your swingarm bag.Remove your foreward chaingaurd bolt,drill a hole into the back off the bag(perferbable where it`s thick),add a large washer to the bolt.Large ziptie on the rear and no fear of it ever getting into the chain.I wouldnt wanna see that happen.

Changed the whole look of your bike. The headlight looks bigger, the signals smaller.... big change with simple scootmods forwards!

I'm 6'1". There were obviously a few other changes. Demons headlight, eBay sigs, 6" risers and yes a bigger brain bucket. The latter is a request by the wife after losing her aunt recently to a motorcycle accident.

thanks I am a little over 6'1" and thought the 6" forward controls would be to far, but they look just right. I was going to go with some 4" and only thought about the 6", but didn't want to feel like I was reaching for my brakes.

It's the only way to go. It feels like a stretch at first. But one gets used to it quick. Edited to add that these controls are higher and tucked in considerably. This allows a much increased leaning angle. I can turn on a dime now without dragging a footpeg.
