If I was you I'd keep the mids and just install some highway pegs . (Very economical) ! -
To change out to forward controls is pretty labor intensive not to mention very expensive . The inner primary must be replaced along with all the controls, linkage, etc.
You can still shift with your foot on the highway bars by using the back of your boot ankle and now you can move you legs around instead of being locked into just one sitting position on long rides .
Just sayin !
the road is party right it is some work involed here is a tip i used on doing mine to remove the mid shift shaft >> i went to Harbor Freight and bought their air powered hack saw it uses their little blades and they are not long enuff to reach up there so what i did was use a wheel culler and cut a regular hack saw blade about 6 inches and it worked pefect didnt have to remove outter or inner primary and the shaft just pulled out and the backside fell to the floor took me a total of about 10 min and i was hooking up the forward controls ohh and you can bye the chrome plugs to fill the holes at harley
My 2005 Dyna Superglide has forward controls so I understand your concern. I use Jim's Cycle Shop in Axtel, TX which is about 10 miles east of Waco on Hwy 31. Even though he is about 65 miles from me, I use him for everything, not just because his prices are good but because of the hands on management by Jim himself. Plus it is a nice ride.
