What they said ^^^ You need to give us more information on what you have and what you are trying to do.

BTW: Welcome to the forum. Please add your location and your bike's model and model year (NOT year first registered if that is what the paperwork shows) to your profile so that you don't have to remember to tell us every time and we don't have to keep asking when you forget (see Forum Settings link in my signature).

And welcome to the world of antique vehicle ownership (they own us, not the other way around). Your bike is about 4 decades old and may or may not have had all of the maintenance necessary to keep it safe & reliable so it is highly recommended to download the Factory Shop Manual for your model (available through the CX Wiki - link in my signature) and go through all of the service procedures, regardless of whether your bike has reached the specified mileage.
I also recommend looking on all rubber parts with suspicion because rubber does not age gracefully. Check the date codes on your tires and replace them if they are over 5 years old no matter how good they look & feel (old rubber simply cannot flow around the irregularities in the asphalt well enough to grip, especially if it is cool or wet). If your bike still has the original rubber brake line(s) (should be replaced every 2 or 3 fluid changes = 5 or 6 years) I recommend shopping for modern stainless braided ones (they last practically forever and double the life of the fluid). And don't forget things like the rad hoses and the boot between the engine and swingarm (they can crack on the bottom where you don't see it).

I got mine from Rejuve Motorcycles. Simple & look great.

Thank you

but they are sold out have been
in contact with the owner for a while and are not coming for the time being he said
but are you still okay with the distance?

Yes, the OE has the peg further up, the ones from Rejuve are right out from the mounting point. When I first got them I pretty much had to take my foot off the peg to shift since the distance was so much more. Then I cut, bent, & welded my shifter to suit. My brake pedal is still stock length, somewhat still far, just haven't gotten around to modifying but it really doesn't bother me since I'm not on the rears that much.
