if you know how to weld you can make your own

extensions are 4", 6" or 8"

I think you could make them without welding, all you would need is two pieces of steel the same thickness, drill two holes that match up to the mounting bolts, two more to match the controls, bolt the two pieces to the original controls, bolt them to the mounting bolts. The toughest part will be making some sort of hook up for the brake cable for the rear. I am still working on that part. As soon as I get that figured out that is how I will move mine, 3 inches forward, 1 inch higher.

i moved mine forward 2 inches. on the left side I used a meteric coupling nut and bolt to extend on the right side I ran the brake cable over the frame instead of below it.

Its piss easy to do I have made for various bikes already, each is different and have there own unique solutions. My advice is make a rough mock up from wood with all the holes in the right place. Then make out of steel or aluminum which is what I use.

Looks like lots of people have done it. How about posting a pic of your mods? I'm not real happy with the stock position and would like to see others ideas too.
