    I have a Fastrak 20/52 and currently I have to have my legs completely outstretched to clear the levers (I'm 6'4"), and I have to be at a complete stop with the handles spread to raise the deck. I'm wondering if the extension kit will make much of a difference. Does anyone have this kit installed? How much does it raise the levers?

    Cheers,
    Brandon

    There is some adjustment in the handles already. If you take the black handles off you find there three holes in the square bar the handle mounts on. If yours are in the factory position(in the bottom two holes) you can bring yours up another hole this may help you out. They offer a extension part number 333724.

    Yes, they are already in the top two holes, I still need some more room to clear the knees. I also forgot to mention that I have the spring seat, which I think raises the driver up a few inches or so over stock.

    The kit is going to give you another 2 to 5 inches or so of useful room depending on how you adjust it.
    I would definitely be using it if I was as tall as you.
