Loose foot rest secured GL 1500

Evev tho my foot rests are beefy,they would get loose...even to the point of bending the shear pin.
Not wanting it to be able to fall off or twist,I modified it just a little.
I also added a metal wedge to angle the foot rest in just a little..This keeps my foot from angling outward.The right rest is also moved back on the bar 1" so the distance from the seat is equal distance on both sides...This stops the hip rotation to accommodate the longer reach to the right side....
