Foot Control Relocation Kit
Does anybody make a relocation kit that both lowers and moves the foot controls forward a bit? Long legs get cramped up in the stock position. Help appreciated.

Look into the Vario adjustable foot pegs from Twisted Trottle , not cheap but very well made and excellent adjustability.

RE: Foot Control Relocation Kit
The problem with changing the footpeg locations is that the relationship between the pegs and the shifter or brake pedal will be compromised. Without adjusting both the shifter and brake pedal they may never again work well together...and no-one, to my knowledge, makes a shifter/brake pedal relocation or adjuster kit for the CB1100.

As a taller rider, my solution was to go with a higher seat which made my long legs much more comfortable. Unfortunately, a custom Tall Corbin or K&H seat can be quite $pendy compared to some lower pegs Angry

RE: Foot Control Relocation Kit
I installed some Buell footpegs on mine. There was quite a bit of grinding and stuff to get the pegs to fit, but it ended up dropping the peg height by 1.5 inches. The shift lever and brake lever are adjustable, but it takes a little effort to get it to move that much (a little cutting on the brake side). Much more comfortable, but you will drag pegs on any spirited riding. I ride like an old man, so not much issue, but I'm almost to the point of getting the Vario pegs instead and lifting them up just a little.

It also had the effect of moving the peg backwards some (not forwards like you wanted). However, it gives my size 11 steel-toed boot more room to fit under the shifter so that helps.

I also got a taller seat, so the two changes together made a night and day difference to my comfort level.

Was the taller seat more comfortable?
Or just the taller position more comfortable?

If the seat is more comfortable, what make is it?

Daytona Cozy, 70's style. The seat itself is more comfortably to my bottom than the original Honda seat. The little bit of extra height is also nice. It's on the Samurider website, but I got it from another member on the classified section. It's a step back to what they put on bikes back in the 1970's, which is all I rode in the 1980's (being a poor kid) and that seems to be the most comfortable by far of all the bikes I've owned.

I just put up some Takegawa Adjustable Foot Pegs in the For Sale forum. I don't have long legs!
