i just bought a set of forward controls off e-bay and i saved 300 dollars. this was a great deal. the controls gave me 6'' of stretch and i warn all you readers that 6'' of stretch is alot. i'm 6' tall and now it feals like i'm riding a chopper. My legs cramp up real easy so i bought these to help out but does anyone have any suggestions out there for leg cramps. how can i get them to stop.

A better seat!

I'm 6'3". Road my buddy's vstar with highway pegs and an aftermarket Mustang seat. Very comfy. Felt great after the ride.

Last week I ordered an ultimate midrider with the backrest. I'll let yeah know how it goes.

Dehydration can cause cramps, too. I know on longer rides, I let myself get a little dehydrated sometimes. Don't wait till you're thirsty to grab a drink; that means you're already dehydrated.

the forward controls are accutronix. i found them on this site titled forward controls. i went to it and it had a short cut to e-bay. I paid 500 for them and they are brand new. but be careful cause they stick way out and i've already drug em on the road. i have a new cap on order already. and get the foot pegs that will retract if you hit them. i made the mistake of getting the rigid type and i'm really scared if i turn to sharp and i hit my foot peg it could either send me flying off or rip the peg and controls off the bike and probably still kick me off while doing it. as for the leg cramp info thanks guys i'm going to try it.
