kuryakyn passenger floorboards

OK gang, back again with more questions. (Don't you just love us newbies!)

Got a pair of 800 Vulcan pegs off ebay and honestly they aren't that much longer, about 1/2". Not enough.Not a biggie, less than $20 with shipping.

I searched and found an archived forum message and here it is:


"Stargazer09-09-2004, 10:08 PM
I replaced my passenger pegs with Kuryakyn Footboards # 7907 and Footpeg adapters # 8830. Pricey but I like them. Much nicer than pegs for any passenger you may have."


I looked up #7907 and they have changed it and its now KY4455. The KY8830adapter is available. Has anyone done this with the new KY4455 and found it to work ok? I also saw some Kury footpegs that had extended mounts available and could go that route if the boards won't work but again not sure which ones will work on our bikes without mods to the bike. Not interested in cutting and rewelding anything.

Thanks for your time. I have a great wife and she likes to ride with me. Just like to get her feet on something that fits her needs.

I am coming up with the 8831 for the adapter (used on the VN800 for the rear...) 8830 shows for the front. since it looks as though all the mounts are the same for Kawasaki models for the rear, I would say its safe to assume that the 8831 is the one you need to put boards on the rear. the KY4455 is in fact the universal passenger floor board. While you are at it you might want to get some floor boards for the front (makes it match that way)

Slimvulcanrider,

Thanks for your research. Greatly appreciated!

Here is the thread I read from. It is from 2004 so things may have changed.


https://www.vn750.com/forum/archive/index.php/t-368.html

Maybe someone will check in that's done this recently and confirm your findings.

Dave

Hummm, pair for the front too...... might be nice to have.........let me get the rear squared away first.......

ok I stand corrected... after reading the thread you posted, I stand corrected. Use the 8830's... I can't wait to see these installed on your bike... I want to use some Zombie pegs on my bike...

make sure to take pics, and if the 8830's don't work exchange them for the 8831's. I am positive the board will be right... the adapters I am still iffy on..


What are you doing with the VN800 pegs?

Want 'em, they're yours, freebees. Send me a PM with where you want them sent, or you can pick up if you come to town like you had mentioned may happen soon.
Hey, you could help me put the floorboards on and we will see if they work!

after clicking on your ebay link, I can see why the VN800 pegs didn't work... you wanted to go with the drivers pegs not passenger... but ohh well... they will work for my intentions.

PM sent

also if the vn800 rear pegs mounted up to the vn750 brackets then the adapter needed should be the 8831 not the 8830... the 8831 has the ball bearing inside it to keep the pegs up, the 8830 doesn't

Oh crap, didn't notice that in the pics. Wonder if I can change the order before it ships.

PM message sent back.

UPDATE!!!! I just ordered the 8831's also. Now we'll see which ones fit and if I do the fronts we'll see if the 8830's work up there!

the 8830's will work up front with out issue. the pictures didn't show the difference between the two... the listing in my Kury link makes it self explaintory... and since you have confirmed that the vn800 passenger pegs work as replacements for the VN750 stock passenger pegs, its a no brainer use the same set up Kury recommends for the vn800... As soon as I get the Kury Page to load I will post the fitment chart up...
