Default Forward Controls 2014.5 Low Rider

Being as I'm new and there are more options than I understand what do you guys recommend for forward controls. Turning my leg out to change gears is hurting my hip with the stock controls.

HD makes 2 types of stock highway pegs alone... Lowriders use to come with a set of highways.. guess not anymore.. I prefer to shift/brake with my heels off of the hwy pegs.. because I dont like the "push" feeling my leg gives the bike when using either lever with fwd. controls and my toes, esp. the brake lever.. (my preference on that for sure) but if you shop it... you should find some reasonable kits for the newer dynas or even some good take off gear that no one is using anymore for sale on ebay, craigslist or here on the forum classifieds

I am willing to bet that you could find a set of forward controls int the dyna parts classifieds right now. I am also willing to bet that if you take those new weird looking mids off your bike someone here would purchase them.

I rode my bike for the first week with stock mids. After about 30 minutes I was ready to get off the bike. My legs would be stiff or cramped. First mod I did was putting on forward controls. I bought the HD kit from the dealer. Now I ride for hours with no discomfort or complaints. It's night and day. I recommend them. Other company's make them too and you can always check the classifieds here or Craigslist etc.

I just installed the Kuryakyn standard forwards on my bike. Amazing difference than the mids for sure. The quality of the Kuryakyn's are pretty darn good and you can typically find them cheaper than the HD branding. Of course I mean new. If you find a complete set used that's in great shape, that will save you some coin.

Good luck. Forwards are very comfortable.

As long as you can comfortably reach the forwards I think you'll be happy. Look into the heal rests they make them feel like floorboards. I have kuryakyn and they seem to be very sturdy

Go with the Harley forwards. They make regular , extended , and reduced reach depending on your height. I myself won't buy any Kury anymore, I had a inner primary cover that the chrome started peeling and they would do nothing about it. So I won't use any of there stuff on my bike anymore.

Thanks Guys I will head up to the Dealership this coming week and see what length I should buy. The Mids are ruining the pleasure of being out on the road.
