For forward “pegs” I fitted the Yamaha engine guards that make a nice, simple highway foot rest. Trouble is you then need to move your feet back to the stock pegs for braking and shifting. Not the best for rapid response in an emergency situation.

My ideal Bolt for comfort (seat height plus foot peg location) and looks is the R-Spec with C-Spec seat. I particularly wanted the cast wheels with tubeless tires.

The local dealer is closing out a new 2015 C-Spec for $5,950 but it’s not cheap to “R-Spec-it” by changing out the bars and foot controls, as others are finding out here starting from the SCR base.

I café-d mine with the C spec stuff a week or so ago.
Oooh do you have any tips on the c spec hack? I'm looking into a c spec seat and trying to keep as much other stuff as stock as possible.

Hi there, my first post here, sorry for resurrecting an old thread, but I have the opportunity of some xv950 forward controls, which I would like to fit. Before I pull the trigger though, I just really want to check if anyone knows if these will fit?

I have the Uk spec SCR950 which comes with abs....will they be an easy bolt on fit, or am I looking at some issues?

The controls are off a standard xv950.

True forward pegs requires stock non C spec bolt footpeg carriers and a kit like a low and mean (which in itself runs like 4-500).

C spec foot peg stuff is same as SCR. Which is why by putting on the C spec clip on's and I got a C spec. I have the seat cowl etc sitting at home. That rear seat clamp off the C I have to fab or buy.

I haven't done this part - but in theory get bolt foot peg carrier assy (gear shift, brake lever etc included) and you can move the pegs to the "bolt" position. That's only 1/2 forward IMHO. The non C spec gear mechanism is completely different from the SCR/C. The peg, the linkage etc etc all different.

Then follow the low mean video, buy the parts and do that for true forward pegs.

The bike turns into a C spec easy IMHO.
The SCR actually turns into a ape hanger/high drag bars easier than R spec or C spec cos its got the longest wires and cables. Just make sure you get 7/8 bars in the apes.

The forward peg situation is the hardest to deal with on this bike. Its what they do in that low-mean video+sourcing the correct R/Base bolt parts (which really are pretty abundant cos they made 10X those even compared C+SCR), but you gotta go get them.

However I think the bike is very very cool as a bolt with SCR handlebar. That setup IMHO is hard to beat.

C spec is enjoyable, but it has a bit of a cognitive dissonance. It tells you it can do things that really would end in you falling flat on your a$$.
