    Hi, Has anyone put foot peg extenders on their 1200 vmax, I am 6 2" and find that my legs are a bit cramped, I have put peg extenders on my zzr1200 and it was much better so I would like to do the same on my max.
    Anyone?

    Forward Controls. The least expensive versions are available on ebay.

    I don't know if this will help cause when you say extender do you mean move them forward like sean said. I moved mine back so my shifter could be reversed and I would be in a forward position. But I did that to drag it at the track but I felt more comfortable that way so I left it like that. If that is the direction your wanting I could send you some pics it's real easy and the way I did it you can just bolt the old stuff back on if you don't like it

    I have to confess it was sean's avatar that inspired me to do that! If you look at where his feet are as he launches his bike, I put mine right above where his feet are so I didn't have to concentrate on pulling my shifter foot so far and so my weight was forward to keep the wheel down ( but not so much luck on the keeping the wheel down situation :D:))

    If you have case savers you can mount flip out foot pegs on them like I did before I got my forward controls.
    I have them for sale as there not needed anymore.
