Cool Forward controls / extended controls

Hi There. I have the XG500, 2015 and am wanting to extend the forward controls so instead of sitting in bent knee position have a more extended stretch with both brake side and gear side.
Has anyone done this yet, are we able to do it and if so can anyone steer me in the right direction in terms of parts, pegs and the like. I would also love to add a foot rest pad but again not sure if we can.
Love to hear from you as am new to customizing her on this level.

e bay you can find them as a kit. not cheap but say be worth it.
also look into fp3 , V&H naked air filter with there V&H comp pipe and the bike will much better and smoother in the top end.

also mirrors they suck if you know some one with a gas kit heat them and bend them a little and quick spray and u have fixed the problem.
any thing you need help on ill be happy to suggest and guys here will too.

I select Vo2 high flow air cleaner and competitions without baffle. After a week I started using auto tone. She pops sometimes when I left off the gas at high RPMs thats why I'm use auto tone to get rid of the popping.

Thank you, am sure i will have lots of questions. I am having probs tuning my FP# as it can find the darn VIN only the V&H. Asked V & H about this and they said to make sure had on the right acc switch on ignition. treid again and stil no luck. So feeling a little frustrated with it have to say.

I had issues connecting my FP3 inside my garage but when I pulled my bike outside it would connect. I tried two different phones and both would only connect outside.

I don't understand because my garage is standalone and I have no other Bluetooth devices around.
