Thank you!Thanks for the picture that clears things up.
It is a VT750DC, a 750 Spirit, so AFAIK the controls are in stock position.
I'm more familiar with 750 ACE mods myself, so hopefully somebody more familiar with the Spirit can help.
Depending on your physique possibly recontouring the seat might help to bring you forward.
Others will likely have more suggestions.
Thank you, I was thinking the same thing...How do you find the bar position for your arms? It helps to be taller with those peg positions. You might get someone to fabricate some new brackets to bring the pegs back a little, but then you’ll have to deal with modifying the brake and shift levers.
The sad truth is, that bike might not be the one for you. You can try selling it for what you paid for it, and look for something with a more comfortable riding position for you.
The only thing I don't care for on my bike is the same one you're having a problem with. The too-far-forward foot pegs are a major hindrance to riding it comfortably. Our bikes are what's called "cruiser style". For short hops, it suits me fine. For an afternoon of riding, it's a major pain in the butt. I even put long floorboards on it, and it doesn't really help at all.Thank you, I was thinking the same thing...
Thank you - I think the floorboards may be the solution! Thank you thank you thank you!!That’s a Spirit, which has the most forward stock controls of all of the 750 models, if you simply want a comfortable place to rest your feet and you can reach the shifter/brake when you need to use them then a set of floorboards positioned towards the rider might be just what you need to allow you to rest your feet further backwards, the brake pedal and shifter can be adjusted slightly to move them up/back with the factory adjustments as well.
As far as I am aware there is no bolt on method to move the factory controls backwards, only forwards.
