Default Vulcan 800 Forward Control Templates

I tried to set these templates up the best I can as many people have been asking about how to make forward controls. These with minimal work you should be able to set up 3-6" forward and 0-1"up. If you are interested in the actual pdf that should print out very close to scale. hit me with an email at timb4302@gmail.com. I will be happy to email them to you, the file is too large to post here.

Have a great day everyone.

Thank you for sharing your work. I'm sure quite a few riders will be using your design. Have a happy Thanksgiving.

Ride Safe

Working on fabing a set of 5" controls using your template. Do you a template for the brake cable bracket? Was thinking I would leave the original bracket in place if I ever wanted return to the stock position.

Thanks again for all your help.

I had to cut and reposition it, otherwise it is in the way of the cable. I had an extra set of brackets that I had kept in case I want to go back to factory. You can find them pretty inexpensive.

Default 3" and 1" up & out

i just emailed you about the pdf , but noticed on your other post that you went 3" out and 1" up & out....are you just using spacers to go out? or? I'm thinking that might be about right as i have kinda short legs as well 30-32 inseam depending on the pant. lol. and i'd love to do this mod , as this is my first bike and it just feels like not enough leg room , went for the first lil tour today and it was good , but i think the forward controls would vastly improve the comfort.
