    • are there any alternatives for forward controls on Bonneville America models or at least a set of mid position foot rests tha I can stand up un to relieve back trauma over bumps? Also is there a fix for speedometer error- my speed indicated is about 6/8 miles faster than actual mph have 19 tooth front sprocket stock rear but I think speed is signaled from sensor on front wheel-thanks

        This kit available from Bellacorse that moves the controls aft: http://bellacorse.com/shop/custom-pa...a-speedmaster/

        If the speedo is mechical, then you don't have any recourse. If electronic, then I believe some crafty folks have figured out ways to modify the signal being received in order to correct the meter's output. I'm a carb'ed/mechanical type, so you'll need someone else to explain the electrickery.
