Default 06 vegas Not mean for midgets

Long story short , bought it w/o riding it and it was not working (needed new fuel pump ). Took care if that and ride it a short distance. Foot controls are too far forward fir me. Don't feel safe the way they are.
Are there reduced reach controls for the 06 vegas?

Have you thought about a new saddle that pushes you toward? It may be an easier fix.

No but you could possibly retrofit boards but that wouldn't help you with the brake pedal or shifter but you could use a heel/toe shifter.

One other option is a redone seat that moves you forward. Harley calls them "Reach Seats" I think but a decent upholstery person could do it for your bike. The basically have less padding under the butt but more padding behind you so you simply sit more forward on the bike.

Basically if you look for the parts they put into the Vegas Low you'll get what you're looking for. The narrow seat and narrowed side panels help quite a bit for getting your feet on the ground and the different handlebars will help with bring them back to you as well. Avoid the lowering link if at all possible.. that reduces the lean angle on the bike signifcantly, but it does drop it down so someone 5'4" can reach pretty easily. My wife was 5'3" and she couldn't quite flat foot hers..unless she wore boots.. which she wouldn't do most of the time.

I am 5'2 and use a heel toe shifter, and had a machine shop basically cut and smooth the brake peg. Drilled a new hole and attached . Looks great no problems.
