Forward controls

Has anyone ran a set on their 900s? I personally hate the stock floorboards and controls. Lifting my boot to press the brake is beyond annoying. I found a set of universal forwards on J&P Cycles. https://www.jpcycles.com/product/200...h-mounting-kit anyone have any experience with forward controls on the 900?

I have a 900 custom (pegs not floorboards) and there was a guy on either here or https://www.kawasakimotorcycle.org (Grumpyworth is his tag...I think) that used to make brackets to move the stock controls ahead 4 1/2 inches. I have his on my bike and they are great.

I have a set of Mapam forward controls on my 2010 classic, moved my feet forward some, not a lot, but I am happy, I am 6'1". I too dislike the floorboards, not sure if they are made anymore.
