Lost my left rubber pad on my foot board Saturday during a 500 mile ride, anyone might have a left (and a right) pad? Not sure if they are different size but I can take a photo and measure if you need me too


I'm pretty sure they are Drag Specialist



Thanks

John

you can also look for the friction tape style pad if you want some non-slip options

By Golly Flash you found them, thanks. I just got back from Lowes and found a rubber mat that is a little thicker and a more aggressive tread.I just found out that we have a PGR mission Thursday morning so I may go ahead and use this mat first adn se how it turns out but I know where to find the replacements now, Thanks Flash



Here's a few pics of the mat

use a little gorrila glue to hold them in place, make sure to use a little because it expands

I've got a couple of types of 2 part epoxy around here somewhere, find the one for this application. I think the tread will look better good, just finding the right spot to cut out

Here is what I came up with for replacing the pads.... I could do a better job on the corners but it was late, I mean early this morning when I cut them out. I used a utility knife to cut and did not think about the EMT type scissors to rounf off the corners. .LESSONS LEARNED

But lots more pad left to redo
