Great adition to the bike and a lot more comfortable to ride with and easy to fit
A really great addition to my bike. Makes the feet feel better and rides are much easier. Have had heel/toe setups before and wouldn't be without it. Greaqt looking and easy to install. I also, boughtb the heel extender and can honestly say it was not really a good addition. It doesn't really help that much. As far as the price these are a steal.
These are absolutley the best addition to the bike for driver comfort. They were easy to install and really add to the great look of the bike. Love the heel/toe shifter. Got the larger brake pedal and wished I had gotten the kickstand extension as well. Will be part of my next order
These are not only functional... but they really finish off the looks of that area of the bike.
I tend to ride pretty aggressively and was concerned about wearing out the plastic drag bar on the bottom so I had every intention of removing these and putting the old stock pegs on whenever I knew I'd be hitting the twisties hard.
However, on the GL1800 forums I met a member who makes some awesome steel floorboard savers that are direct bolt-ons. Go to Traxxion's website to find them. Those will throw some nice sparks in the twisties and put on quite a show while not digging into the nice chrome finish of these boards.
Previously had the mini boards on my '09 but finally decided to go with full boards instead. Huge comfort difference! Foot position is much more relaxed and the left board flips up easy enough to access the sidestand tang with no problems flat-footing at stops with the boards down (I'm 5'11"). Look great too, have the highway set and the passenger Transformers for the full meal deal. Don't scrape in the corners any easier than my minis did either...woo-hoo!
I have a 2012 Gold Wing (airbag model) and it fits perfectly.
I was a little worried before it showed up because of my large shoes. You'll just get used to positioning your feet correctly so that it won't interfere.
So far it works great and looks so much better than the stock pegs and much more comfortable.
I dont' think I'd be comfortable returning to the stock pegs. You'll love this!
I have had the boards for 20k miles so far. I've had no problems beside the sometimes cornering clearences. They are still keeping there shine just keep them clean and washed and you should have these for along time. There hasn't been any mechanical problems with shifting once in a great while I may miss a shift but due to my lazyness in shifting. You do have to make clean shifts to make it work properly. I will never go back to the stock shifter. I gave this item 4 stars because I have to take the shift side off to add coolant etc....but very easy to install just alittle annoying cause I have to carry one extra tool with me.
NOT a good design. It will bend the shift bar. You have to put plastic wire ties on to keep in shifting. The bolt that the shifter is on comes loose and you have to take the thing off to fix. I had one on my 1500 that was a lot better design and never gave me trouble. CAUTION
Installed on 2012 ABS GL1800. I'm adding this info for those that have a 2012 and were wondering what will fit. I will review 27 items that I installed on my 2012.
My third gl1800 with these installed. I don't prefer heal/toe shifting but I really like the floorboards and have gotten used to this type of shifting. The heal and toe pegs have rusted on my previous bikes (hence the 4 stars).
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
