i got a koford external controller as a gift; it's a cool controller, except for the square handles. do the new koford handles fit the guts of this controller or am i stuck with this clunker?

Generally, every handle can be interchanged on most controllers - BUT....You may have to add a Parma turbo frame or Difalco frame kit to adapt the trigger and power/brake posts.  Some trimming might be needed.

The old black square Koford handle? Extremely doubtful that they are interchangeable. I do not sell my frame kits anymore and the Parma turbo frame will not fit either.

upon checking pictures of the new handle, it looks like a straight swap-over from the old handles. the mounting posts seem to be in the right places. i'm going to order a pair & i'll post pictures later.
