Lower controls
« on: June 08, 2017, 06:20:50 PM »
Any decent way to lower the Nighthawk controls fora slightly more relaxed fit? Or is there just no way to do that?

Probably depends a lot on the particular model you're talking about.  Mine you can roll the bars forwards or backwards which also lowers them, and they can be closed up tighter.

Do you mean lowering the pegs?  Foot controls?  I've thought about it on my 700s. It would be nice for my knees to not be as bent but the shifter linkage would be some fabrication.  Highway pegs help.

Actually lower controls, not just pegs.

On a late model 750.

The foot controls are adjustable, but unfortunately, the pegs for the most part aren't.  The 750 pegs are welded on.  I'm sure you could get a welder to move them, or get someone to weld on the supports for the 700S pegs, but it's a fabrication issue then.  Might be able to adapt a set of peg lowers from a different bike, or try the Vario pegs from twistedthrottle.com.
