Hello All!

Just bought a 2008 C50. Really enjoy the bike so far. Looking for help with figuring out cables for 16 inch apes, and also a way to extend the foot controls. I’m about 6’2 and getting a little cramped on my hour plus commute to and from work.

Welcome to the forum and the bike. There are forward controls available or some footpegs or crashbars. You can find a way to enjoy it.

Plan for tomorrow and live for today.

Greetings from Indiana.

I can head East or West, it doesn't matter as long as it's on 2 wheels.
