I rode with mid controls for a while. Installing these was a significant time and energy investment, but worth it. The parts are high quality and the instructions are really straightforward and clear. This kit has changed my whole world. it's a much more comfortable ride now. Glad I did it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JasonW No Need to Remove Primary
If you don't mind the spline shaft sticking out of your primary (it doesn't seem to move with the primary cover on), then there is no need to remove the primary. I wish I would have known this prior to doing my installation because I wasted a lot of time.
The installation is actually pretty easy. You can follow the instructions or look at the bigger picture towards the back of the instructions provided to get an idea of how everything fits together (which is what I ended up doing).
If you do want to remove the mid control spline shaft, then you're going to need to remove the outer primary cover and the inner primary housing in order to get that piece out, as it is welded together through the hole, and use the plugs provided in the kit.
An alternative (which I've seen/read about) was taking a hacksaw blade with a thin profile to reach under the frame into the small clearance you have to cut shaft from the lever (have to be delicate doing this to not damage anything else). For now, I've chosen to leave the spline shaft exposed. I may eventually go the hacksaw route, but I refuse to pay HD Service the 4-6 hours service time (which costs more than the kit) to do this.
