Question Has anyone gone the 5" forward kit..

2011 Hammer 8 Ball, with 2" inch forward kit.
I am 6'2" and still think I could go more comfortably..

Witchdoctors sells the kit..5" has anyone done it..?

If so, any changes in handling, corners or just comfort?

Appreciate all feedback,

Regards,

Derek

Little late to the party, but i have them on a vegas, definitely puts the pegs out there, I'm 6'3" my only complant is im narrow in the hips and it can make my inside legs hurt from rotating my hips to get around the tank. As far as handeling i find them about the same.

Got the kit..although there was some fiddling getting the install right..kit says 2006-2008, mines a 2011.
Local victory dealer fitted for me..

Great, more comfortable for a tall bloke, happy so far...
feels more like riding a lounge chair...
