Installing Forward Controls on 883 Hugger
Hi all, first post in the Sportster forum. We just picked up my wife's first Harley yesterday from a private party, a 2002 883 Hugger. Great bike with a lot of add-on's already, but we're going to have to put on forward controls. My wife is 5'9 and she has a knee that has been through 4 major surgeries, so having the knee bent with the stock pegs will kill her after a while.
My question is how easy to install the forward pegs, since I've never had to install on my bikes (baggers)? The bike also has an engine/highway bar installed, so I know that means another part that needs to be added according to the HD forward control description. My wrenching abilities are average, so I'm not afraid of trying something new, just want to know what to expect.
I'd appreciate any input from all the other Sportster owners out there.
Well when you're sitting there in your silk upholstered chair
Talking to some rich folk that you know
Well I hope you won't see me in my ragged company
Cause you know I could never be alone
