krravi I would like to thank Chad, for his fantastic piece of work on the floorboards and very fast shipping.

I was happy to recieve the package and upon opening, found two heavy duty boards with a nice rubber padding on the top. One look and you can tell the amount of work thats gone into making it. Very solid piece of work.

Installed it quickly and once i sat and rode the bike, it felt like a dream. I dont really like customization, just love the factory look. But this floorboard was one change i was ready to make and i dont regret it.

For those of you, who are still wondering if its worth it, dont think twice. Take the plunge and order one, you wont be dissapointed.

Thanks Chad !. Great work !.

"Goop" brand Marine adhesive.

Sold at Lowes for 4 bucks a tube. Dries into a clear rubber. Absoulutely waterproof.

Coat the board and clamp for 24 hours. Peel off excess.

Sounds good, and since I always seem to make a mess the "Dries Clear" part may be a helpful benefit. Marine use probably means it's really good stuff too. I'll pick some up on my next trip to Lowes. Thanks!

Now it is perfect. As for the rubber sliding, I contacted Chad and he said he used Liquid Nails to attach the rubber. I peeled off the rubber, let it set up for an hour or two and reinstalled. Now it stays put

Liquid Nails, eh?
I never tried that stuff, but since you say it works I'll see if I can peel off the rubber in one piece and try it.

BTW, I never mentioned it, but it's true: Once you use floorboards you don't ever want to use pegs again.
Thanks for offering a reasonable price option for this mod Chad.

Mastertech Move the shifter around one spline on the shaft. Undo the bolt and pull off shifter.
