Yes Giga, it extends the stock foot pegs and controls out from 4 5 or 6 inches out depending on which ones you order. I think they have done extensions for even after market forward controls for those that are really tall. If you just want to extend the stock ones this is the way to go, otherwise you can spend 350 or more to get a replacement set of controls that are polished or chromed, and are extended like the mapams for example... Which is what I went with.

This is from DrDiesel over at Spirit 750. it's a good write up and very detailed compared to the instructions you get with them.
If you see fit, make it a sticky for all the new peeps who buy them
Just wanted to say thanks again. I installed them today and everything went together perfectly. I can't wait to get out on the road and try them out!!

I noticed that they have a little bit of "flex" to them. I cranked everything down good and tight. Is this normal or did I somehow manage to screw up the unscrewable?

What about the C2?

I just bought an 07 vt750c2 and i need some info on the forward control extention. So far all i see in the page is for the dc model and early models. I noticed scootmod sells the parts for a 4" mod but does anyone know of like a 6" mod?

It aint no big thang. I figured you would get around to it eventually. Besides, I have been on vacation the last week, and have been tinkering with the bike the entire time. So, I haven't even been able to ride it. I've been busy. I got those graphic in and took the tank to the paint shop to have them installed and clear coated. They got into the paint when they were trying to remove the SS graphics. So they had to paint the sides of the tank to match and then put the graphics and clear coat on. I called them today and they had the paint and a coat of clear sprayed. I guess they will rough it up, apply the graphics and get the other coat of clear sprayed sometime tomorrow or the next day. I won't even be able to ride it till the end of the week. I also put new mirrors on it and decided I was going to run the wiring inside the handlebars.

I am glad that I decided to do that when I had some time off, becuase it turned out to be a real pain in the ass!!!! I must have put it together and had it apart at least 3 different times before I got it right. I will post some pictures when I get the tank back on and let you know how it turned out. I put graphics on the front and rear fenders and they turned out pretty nice.
