Installed Choppin's Forward Controls

PostAuthor: JamesRS2007 » Wed Dec 13, 2017 8:50 pm

Hi all,

I just wanted to drop a note to anyone interested in getting a set of forward controls for their Virago. I just purchased and installed a set from Choppin's custom components and they are Awesome! I am 6` with an inseam of 32" and the main issue I had with my 1100 was the peg location. after doing some research, i decided to pull the trigger on a set of forward controls, and the best deal I saw out there were Choppins. They are priced very competitively, and the fit and finish on them is excellent. I purchased them about a week ago, and they arrived yesterday. I installed them today and took the bike for a ride, and what a difference! The laid out position of the pegs in conjunction with the heel / toe shifter makes the bike so much more comfortable to ride. No stress on the knees, and as a 54 year old guy, that is a major relief. They look great on the bike, and make cruising around so much more relaxing, I don't want to get off.

Here are a few pics of the controls on my bike.

Looks awesome! I'm definitely interested in getting a set from choppin for my 1100 once the money is right, maybe after the holidays! But they look great enjoy the ride!

Just let me know when its time to get a set made for you. Makes the ride that much better with your legs extended forward. I get cramps in my legs if riding with the stock pegs.
