    i actually bought a VTX just because it came with the forward controls. my main concern is if i extend the forks to get the tire pushed out a little and make it so i have more room for pegs and when i hang my feet out over the pegs. as far as handle bars im thinking huge apes with no pull back anyone have apes and can give some advice.

    I'm not 6'8" but I have been doing research on ape hangers and they look sweet on the vtx. You can use a google search "vtx ape hangers" and get a lot of threads on the topic on this site and other vtx sites. Here is a link that might help you out:

    Just adding extensions to the tubes won't put the wheel out there enough to get you more leg room, you'd have to go with a different rake to move the wheel out far enough to notice a change. I'd bet a 6* won't be enough so you'll probably need to go with a 45* kit.
