ScootMods Inc. 6 inch forward control extensions

I recently installed the ScootMods Inc. 6 inch forward control extensions on my 2011 Honda Shadow Aero VT750C and wrote a review about them here.

Bottom line: Best Modification I have done to my Bike yet. Excellent Highly recommended.

Product being reviewed: ScootMods Inc. 6 Inch Forward Control Extensions Kit (4 Inch kit also avail).
Purpose of Forward Control Extensions: To increase the Riders Leg room and improve Leg/Knee position by relocating the Footpegs (or floorboards), the Shift Lever and Brake Pedal 6 inches forward.
Motorcycle Make/Model that this ScootMods Inc Extension Kit was installed on for this product review: 2011 Honda Shadow Aero VT750C.
Product Recommended for: Riders with an inseam of 33 inches and Higher.
Product Manufactured in: USA
ScootMods Inc Website: www.scootmods.net (also on Ebay)
Kits available for multiple Motorcycle Makes/Models (see website or YouTube Videos)


Review:
Bottom Line: Excellent Product, Greatly improved riding comfort and stability. I highly recommend the ScootMods Kit for any rider who would like to extend their legs our further while riding their Motorcycle. Without a doubt the best improvement I have made to my Bike.
Being 6'5" with a 36" inseam soon after purchasing my Honda Shadow Aero VT750 realized I was a bit tall for the bike. I heard of forward control extensions online and looked into getting them. The ScootMods kept coming up on Motorcycle forums and people were saying good things about them and recommending them so I finally got the Kit and installed it on 10-3-12.
Installation took about an Hour and 30 minutes total.
The Kit is designed so you can keep your Stock Honda Footpegs or you can use Aftermarket footpegs or adjustable Floorboards. In my case I installed the kit keeping my Kuryakyn 4351 Premium Floorboards and liked the fact that you keep the Honda Stock Footpeg mounting brackets and the strength built into them.
The Kit quality I would give the highest rating, the extension brackets are CNC laser cut out from cold rolled steel and they do not not Flex at all. My bikes foot controls feel just as sturdy as the original Honda design. I liked my bike a lot before installing this kit but now I Love my Bike it fits me like a custom made glove. The price of the Kit was lower than the other kits I have seen yet the quality looked to be much better than other kits available for my bike.

I highly recommend the ScootMods Forward Control Extensions kit for anyone who would like make their Motorcycle more comfortable to ride.
When installed, this ScootMods Kit allows the rider to extend their legs out further, lowers their knee position and provides a much more enjoyable riding experience.


Here are some Pics. My Bike is the Red Shadow Aero. I included some pics from the internet with the same kit installed with Footpegs to show the kit works with either Footpegs or adjustable floorboards. YouTube Installation Video and information video Links Below

Thanks for the Vid's Greg. I now understand more clearly what the guys speak of when they talk about the extensions. (yes I am blonde and proud of it)

And yes I was thinking: what a dork he is wearing a sweat band! lol lol
thanks for explaining that. lmao
I was in your neck of the woods when it was real hot like that, low and behold I hardly seen a biker around.

Hi Girlfriend,

now I know you watched the video isince you heard my little explaination about wearing a sweat band LOL. I sweat a lot when working in the heat down here in Arizona.

You're right about not many bikers riding down here in the summer when its Hot as hell
but the weather changed about 5 days after I did the install. it was like someone flipped
a Switch and suddenly the weather is really nice down here. Our Winter months are the nicest weather we have down here.

Now suddenly there are a Ton of Riders out on the road and I give the waive
to like 25 riders now on each ride. The weather combined with the price of Gas has increased the Riders out there and I am definitely noticing.

I took a 50 mile Ride (one way, 100 total) yesterday just to get some Patches sewn on a Biker Vest I recently bought. Great ride.

Thanks for responding and I'm glad you now know what extentions are all about with regards to Motorcycles.

Ride Fun
