Interested in your old floorboard and shift rubbers if you take them off.

Top post on the tech forum has a list of used parts sellers. You can also check on E-bay.

Brojees, I like my floorboards now, but it took some getting used to. I didn't ride for a number of years before getting my 1200. I think that helped me in getting used to them.

The brake pedal will no longer be where you are use to
, if you have the Marklands like mine. This can be a real problem in a pannic stop, so you will have to get used to the different "feel".

But they sure look good!

A couple of the wings that I almost bought had floorboards and the heel/toe shifter, and it felt awkward for me as well. The bike I eventually got has the standard pegs and shifter-what I was used to- and I am now happy about that. Who knows, maybe after a while, I will want to trythem out, but for now I am content.

Hi James...Send me a PM,and I'll go through my old bolts to see if I can find what Pat doesn't have for you...

I have tried different manufactures of floorboards,and for the way I ride (speed shifting at times) I just don't care for the heel-toe shifting/braking method..

I just put a set that don't have the big round chrome tube on my Buddy's bike for testing,Much nicer than the Marklands.. I didn't like those either,he on the other hand loves them,so I left them on his wing..

I like to feel the pegs/shifter/brake pedal at the tips of my toes..And when I want to put my feet up,I use my Markland Highway boards on the engine guards.

Let me know James.

I have an 87 Aspencade with floorboards and heel toe shifter. It sure took a long time to get used to them but I really like them now. i would get a few miles under your belt before throwing them away, you may well end up getting converted like me!!

I know and I have been checking. My rubber inserts fell off my shifter miles ago and no luck finding replacements. I love the floorboards. First time to actually use them and I will never go back to pegs.



Need a rubber insert for my left passenger floorboard as well.

 Brojees;    Check old posts... There was someone who made floorboard rubber pads with  some rubber matting available from either  Home Depot... or an Auto store... Sharp razor blade, good rubber contact glue, and you are set../forums/images/emoticons/big_grin.gif.......                                               and Mr 1200... You and I are in the same camp... I am assuming that "Speedshifting" is what I call clutchless shifting... just match the RPM's, and push the shifter /forums/images/emoticons/wink.gif?... I also  love doing that ... and using both the heel, and the toe is GREAT....  although  I have scraped the bottom of the boards../forums/images/emoticons/shock.gif. which move up a bit on mine.........for just that purpose ... I would not want   to go back to pegs, for this type of Bike.. SilverDave  /forums/images/emoticons/emoticonsxtra/cooldj.gif
