Hey everyone
Got a 2000 Honda Shadow Ace 750, I believe deluxe not sure sure what the differences are. She’s been used quite a bit with 40k miles on it. It’s my first bike and my beginner bike. I’ve already driven for a couple weeks and started with the forward controls extensions. Half way through the install i realized I have aftermarket forward controls that don’t work with the extension so now I’m looking for the oem ones. If anyone has some that they want to sell to me please pm me or respond on this thread. here’s the bike. Don’t mind the mess in the garage

Welcome. I'd keep the ones you have. Look like maybe Mapam or Restyling brand. A good all round position. I found the forward relocating kits a bit too far for comfort after a couple hours or days.

Thanks. I like the ones I have but I wanted to see how the extenders felt. I’m 6’4” and feel like I need to stretch out the legs a bit more. This morning I figured out that I should just use the mapams with the extenders. I’ll see how that goes. If anything I’ll revert back and send back the extender kit

For you, they may work OK then. They were a stretch with my 32" inseam.. You would still need some oem pegs and brackets.

If still interested, I have 2 sets of the extenders laying around.

See this thread: New forward control extensions!

Thanks everyone

I bought the tcbrothers extender kit. I put most of it together last night with mapam and ran into two issues. First is the shifter pedal side is much further than the rod they sent, because of the mapam pedals if it was oem it would fit perfect. And second it’s ram far with both on. how the mapams were original give it a 4 inch extension plus the tc brothers kit it’s a good 10 inches. Would have to keep my knees locked all the time to reach. I’m just going to send the tc brother extender back and wait until I get my hands on oem pedals set to try it out.

Welcome to the forum from West Chester, PA. Good looking bike ya got there. Don't worry about the 40,000 miles. Take care of these and they will run a lot longer than that. Almost 80,000 on my 2001 Spirit 750. Others here have listed much higher mileage. you should enjoy it once you get the foot pegs/controls figured out. have fun, stay alert and ride often.

thanks for the welcome. i have ridden it a couple to time to work at this point but with all the rain, and the questionable tires it has, ive had her parked.
as for the foot controls, still in the same spot lol. the pivot for the rear brake backs out little by little every time i press it. i tried getting an oem pivot bolt its too big by maybe 1/8 of an inch. im guessing when they installed the mapams they lost some bolts and rigged something up to make it somewhat work.

The front is from a 1978 Goldwing and the rear is from a 1973 Norton.

I would try the salvage yard route to get all the brackets as well. You can try for a stock fender and cut it down to match your look, but I’ve heard a few other types of fenders (ie. Harley) can be fit with minimal modification.
