I was planning on doing the forward controls and lowering bones from Johnskits.com over the winter... But the website has disappeared. Anyone know what happened? Or if there's any vendors that might have these yet?

Is there another forward controls kit that keeps the floorboards? I saw a really nice set of pegs for a Vulcan 650 S that had a bit of a floorboard integrated into it but they weren't full floorboards. Anyone ever see something like this that could be used with peg forward controls?

My understanding, from reading several reviews, etc is that lowering the bike slightly reduces floorboard clearance while leaning, causing scraping, but if you did the FC, it moved the boards in such a way that it doesn't reduce clearance? Is this accurate???

Thanks

I'm not aware of another kit that keeps the OEM floorboards...

I installed eBay bought forward controls (link below), and they are good, and held-up well over a couple of years.

Howie, it's unfortunate but it truly seems they are gone from existence. I have yet to find another kit that will work with the factory floor boards. Sad but true! I considered trying to contact the man in Facebook but have not done it.
