The process is as follows

My first step was to install these on my 2006. The process is as follows. The first thing I did was install them on my 2006 Honda You might have to make some minor changes based on your height if these work for you. These would have received a 5 tar, but when I got them, I found some pieces were missing. I was able to get the pieces I needed very quickly from Amazon and the seller. I am 5'8", so I think I should have gotten 4" rather than 5" of extensions because I am so tall. This is "5". As such, I will have to drill holes in the mounts, and relocate the pegs a one of a half inch to solve the problem. A 5" or a 2" size is acceptable. I had to cut off approximately 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch from the end of the all threaded rod in order for it to shift up, so that means I had to cut off about 1/2 inch to 3/4 inch. I installed my brake lever side in about 15 minutes, even without instructions, which I did not receive with mine. The offset mount is installed on the break side, and the flat mount is installed on the shifter side (the curved end is mounted to the frame side). Nevertheless, about 20 minutes were needed to adjust the brakes at the rear wheel adjustment, the shifter side. I had mounted the bracket backward, so I had to flip it on its side and cut the all threaded rod back a little. We spent about 45 minutes to an hour on the call. I searched online and found some pictures of these already installed but they were not very clear as they were close ups so I hope the pictures I include shed some light on how to do it and help those of you that have never done this install before.

The instructions are absent, but it is a simple process

The instructions are absent, but it is a simple process. The brake side is as follows
1. As you remove the controls, remove the bolts that hold them in place. 1. 'Item 2. Put the extension plate over the holes so you can see how it'll be mounted. The extension plate should be staggered (further back than the other). A flush fit should be achieved between the holes and the 1. 2. 3. the bolts that are in the package and place a washer in front and a washer in the back of the hole in the extender. 4
Fix the foot brake controls to the extender. Attach the silver plate to the brake line and attach the extender to the foot brake. silver plate attaches to the foot controls at the same location as the brake line used to be. Here are the clutch side specifications 1. Take out all parts as before, including the clutch line and foot controls. 1. 'Item 2. Install the extender as before, with one washer being placed in front, and the other in the had to use some of my own washers since the kit did not include enough). 1. 2. 3. To connect the clutch line stud extension to the foot controls, attach the coupler to it, then to the clutch line still on your bike, and connect the clutch line to that.
4. Make sure all of the connections are tight when attaching the foot controls to the extender. It's all I can think of at the moment. You will know how it works once you see the parts in front of you. Don't wait to take action. For an upgrade that's easy, the price is good. It was right before bed that I did the upgrade I did not ride with them yet. Nonetheless, I'm going to give it a go within the next few hours. The event is exciting to me.

This is a great DIY product

Priced at a great value for a fabricator who is just getting started. Then these might make the perfect gift for you. If you have a "shop," a place to work where you prefer to have a vice and a bench, then these might make the perfect holiday gift. In all honesty, for this price I would have been happy with just two steel plates with holes in the right places, but this kit includes all the small extensions you need to make the project work. It took me about 30 minutes to install these on a 97 Hardly* Vt600. You will need to trim the brake side push rod, but that is intentional, and you will understand why when you install them. A flat aluminum bar needs to be notch perfectly in order to extend the rear brake without play (on this I would not settle for anything less than a tight fit because it could be a potential point of failure). There is also a hole in the It was drilled so that a pin could pass through that same part. There is a hole too small already, but this was intentionally done. You need to hold the notch tight after you have applied the notch and then drill the pin hole with a slightly larger bit after you have applied the notch. This hole was readily accessible for me, allowing me to drill out the existing hole with ease. that, you have to be a wrench. I will not detract from the fact that this kit is very basic, the paint isn't great, but it's got it where it counts. The kit arrived this morning, I got to it this afternoon, and it was an easy Whenever I get a chance, I will post pictures of the completed installation. It would have been nice to have instructions at least in simple language. I realize this isn't rocket science, but it would have been nice to know what to do. I had to drink half a beer before I figured out how to fix the brakes. *Honda ** *.

The 5'11" rider will benefit from big gains in comfort with this budget-friendly option

Despite being 5'11", these and slightly adjusting the handlebars made an enormous difference. With the stock setup, I was ready to give it up after an hour, but after these and having the handlebars adjusted right, I feel like I can ride all day long. In fact, they make the seat 10 times more comfortable. The only negative side is that there does appear to be a small amount of flex in the brake drums, and the shop who installed them told me they needed some grinding and a few In conclusion, they are well worth the money, especially if you possess the confidence to install them yourself and to make the minor adjustments to dial them in correctly. I am very happy with my A final thought I now rest my right knee against the air cleaner rather than behind it because I have stretched out my legs more. The saddle was a little uncomfortable at first, but once you get used to it, it will be much more comfortable.

Very good

I have a shadow 600 from 2003. My height and body weight make it impossible to wear something that won't allow me to extend my legs out a little. As for why I gave it 3 stars, I had hoped it came in other sizes. Being a 5, I am not sure why they didn't. was too long for me, so I had a friend of mine cut, redrill holes, and cut some more. As of now, the girth is 4". 5, the child stops talking. By putting my toes on the gear lever, I am able to reach it. Having been shortened, however, has made a difference. As it is winter, there hasn't been an opportunity to go for a ride yet. To get the gear shift pedal, rod, and connector to fit properly, we had to make some minor adjustments. There was a lot of trial and error An error occurred.
