Folding passenger floorboards
« on: April 22, 2017, 02:45:08 pm »
I did some playing over winter to come up with a relatively low cost solution for adding folding passenger floorboards.
I used the peg extensions I had purchased from AST but this setup will work without them.
Kuryakyn floorboards #4357, cost $135
Kuryakyn spline adapter #8818, cost $24
The splines have set screws to lock them in place. The floorboards mount to the splines and have a folding feature. If you use the AST extensions, the boards will still clear the OEM silencer and the passenger will not get a hot foot.
I was planning to use some BMW mounts and ilium works passenger floorboards but I got lazy about making the necessary adjustments. I'll save it for a later project.

I also used the Kuryakyn folding floorboards, I also used the three (3) inch extension to raise and move them forward.  My wife is five foot maybe and needed the rise and forward movement to be comfortable. I was also able to angle or tip the front of the floorboard up for comfort and to keep her feet from sliding forward during a hard stop.

Hi SW RoadRunner,

Do you have the part no for the 3" extension you are referring to? I assume it is a Kuryakyn part, yes?

thanks

Hello Road Runner
I could not find the package but the 2" extension is PN 8837.  I believe that I used PN 4557 and only used the 4" extension.  I tried the 2" extension but could not make it work.  The floorboards I used are PN 4328, they have three attach points so that gives more adjustment.  App parts are Kuryakyn.  I did drill out the Kawasaki pivot point to the next larger size and used a grade 8 bolt as the stock bolts were bending due to the offset load.
Hope this helps.

Thanks SW RoadRunner ... little confusing because you mention 3" extension in your first post on this topic, then 2" (did not work for you) and finally 4". I guess the 4" extension is what you ended up. I'll check out the floorboards you used as well.

thank you

Seems a member has sold his floorboards in the emporium section, pretty slick after seeing the pics. From his post, he mentions the surface is 2" lower than stock. If you do use 4", pls post pics. I might need to upgrade to these soon....

Sorry about the misstatement on length, I had to try several combinations until one worked for both of us, then had to measure to be sure which I finally used.  Sorry for no pictures I cannot seem to learn how to attach them.  If you wish I will PM you with pictures and if you are able to post them that is acceptable.

Setup a photobucket account, upload your photos to that website, then select the photo on photobucket and it will give you and option to copy a link for forums. copy that link and paste it into a post reply here. The photo will then show up in a post.
