I don't think so...not without some mods to the mounting areas.

Assuming you really are talking about a GL1200, ('84-'87), then the answer is likely no, at least not without modification.

In answer to your signature line question, parking lot practice, lots of it. Master the friction zone and the size won't bother or intimidate you any more. The Ride Like a Pro sight has some good practise exercise info as well as discussing the friction zone. I hear the videos are great too. http://www.ridelikeapro.com/

A 2004 is a GL1800, but same results. Not gonna fit without modification. Not sure how much modification would be necessary.

Happer: I bought a '95 1500 SE in April. Had floorboards & heel/toe shifter.

Never could adjust to the riding position.

Always snagging boot sole on heel rest for brake, and on ends of shifter.

Introduced a large delay into braking for me, so went back to stock pegs & pedals.



My 2 cents.

I have floor boards on a 83 aspy. Same result, great for highway riding, not good in town or parades. Hard to break or put your feet down.

No, they are completely different.

Yes, quite a bit of modification, and unless you have the right tools, would not look very good to the eye.

Buy the right ones for your bike, they are on sale here all the time for about 125. I just sold a near new set for a 1500 for $135 shipped. You will end up butchering a good set and tossing in the garbage when they don't work.

just sayin,

Same experience here. Even with the sidecar, the right board always got in the way of the brake. Often enough that I went back to pegs.

Either will fit in the garbage chute with no modifications.

(Where's a couch to hide behind?)

Floorboards are either a love them or hate them. Some people love them and you are apparently in that category. Nothing wrong with that, just different strokes for different folks. I personally hate them but that's just my tastes. :waving:
