Default Poor desing of footpegs and levers alingment?

Hi,

Does anybody else experience something like that? Levers seem to be a bit too far for firm controll so feet need to be rested closer during switch or pressing break pedal until you twist your feet weird way or it's just me?

I just put 2 in forwards from Vic on my Vegas. I notice that in addition to being farther forward the controls moved in a good 3/4 of an inch or so. Being farther forward gets the pegs away from the case and allows them to move inward.

I find the foot controls on my pin a tad annoying. It's the short pegs I say. I find myself missing the brake at times, just hitting the edge. I'm looking for bigger pegs

Hi
I have the 2" extensions and I liked it since the very first moment. I'm not sure I get your problem but I am totally at ease with em

Hi again,
I like my extensions too, but they don't look like interfering with reaching brake pedal and gear lever as (at least at mine) moving footpegs along with controls. At my friends HD's setup and both controls look like being farther on sides and easier reachable from footpegs. Didn't have to much opportunity to study other Vics.
Thanks for replies guys.

Default Was it uncomfortable when you test rode one?

Mine fit like a glove from day one. I use to use floorboards and wondered if I would like it but that day told all.
