Default Short Shots w/mid controls

First of all sorry if this is the wrong sub forum, there’s just so many.

I’m looking at grabbing a 2001 883 Sportster in my area. I noticed it has v&h short shot pipes on it but it also has forward controls. I haven’t had much luck looking around but my question is will I be able to switch back to mid controls with the shots on it? It’s not looking too confident but I figured I’d toss this question out to someone who potentially had experience with it.

Thanks guys

I think that’s won’t be an issue, take a gander over on the Vance and Hines web page and it will have the information that you need.
