Very simple install. Added comfort and great look< worth every penny.
I installed these about 1 year ago. They installed in about 30 minutes and I used the blue Loctite to keep things tight. It took a couple of tries to get the brake pedal set to the desired height but that wasn't difficult. I canâ€™t believe the difference they made in the ride and comfort level and wish I would have installed them when I first purchased my GW in 2008. After a year they still look and feel great. If there was only 1 item I was going to buy to improve the comfort of my ride, these are it.
I don't like the stock pegs on the Wing. My old feet like the full length rest. I traded a VTX1800 for the Wing, so was spoiled to floorboards and heel/toe shifter. I put these on my Wing the first day, 70,000 miles ago, and have been very satisfied. WARNING---- DO NOT TIGHTEN the mounting bolt for the shifter. Some play is required in order for the shifter to work. LocTite, as noted below, would be a singularly bad plan. I have not scraped the boards while turning, but I ride conservatively. Boards are not for everyone, but I like them a lot.
Installed these a couple months ago. At first I wanted to send them back, just didn't feel right. What I found is that on long rides the extra movement is fantastic. I still prefer the pegs if I'm doing the winding back roads of KY. But overall exspecially for touring they are a must have.
I installed them on my 2012 GOLDWING.I like them a lot ,and they look good. Instructions and video made this an easy instillation.no dealer needed..As for putting down the side stand.just raise the floorboard up with your foot and flip down the side stand...easy...
I purchased these for my 2008 Goldwing and had them installed at a local dealer in NJ. The idiot put the red lock tight on the bolts. Word to the wise, never put red lock tight on aluminum parts. The arm on the shifter would stay slightly engaged, causing the shift rod to burn, thus causing the gears to burn out. When riding, the bike would fall out of gear and make the loudest, most horrible sound you'd ever want to hear. Honda will not honor the warranty with the boards on and it cost over $4500 to replace the system. Lucky for me I had my boards taken off. I will never use those boards ever again, to much of a headache, although they made the ride comfortable, but to fix this problem took too much time and who want to be without their Wing for 2 months.
I have bent my 1800 OEM shifter arm twice with these floorboards and shifter. It should be made the way it was on the 1500 with direct linkage. Never had a problem with those floorboards. Also like others said I can not remove the side covers.
And we can't wait to show you how it's done!
