Hello all
I'd like to hear what brand floorboards you have and what you like or dislike about them.
Thanks Tech1

I had Kuryakyn and took them back off. Some people can put their feet down with their legs behind them, some have long enough legs and some have to lift the floorboards with their feet to put their feet down. I did not like any of those three options so went back to pegs. I also had Kuryakyn highway boards, and took them off in favour of pegs. The highway boards were "okay" but the pegs are perfect. I have a 30 inch inseam.

I have the Kury boards also. I like the comfort of being able to move my feet around when cruising. Don't have any problem with putting my feet down when stopped. BUT, I don't have the extensions on the kickstand so I have to fold up the board to put the stand down, and I have ridden off after putting up the stand only to realize the board is still folded up. DUH.....
To each their own. I spent a lot for them, and will probably leave them on, but knowing what I know now would have stayed with the OEM pegs, or an upgraded peg rather than the boards.
Whatever you decide enjoy your ride!

When I bought my bike it had floor boards I thought they look good until I drove the bike. I had trouble getting my feet on the ground, I would always get cought in the boards plus I had trouble shifting , I would miss a shift with the heel shifter that I found hard to shift with. I took all that crap off and went with mini floor boards amd plain shifter, much better.

Thanks everyone for the input. I have Markland boards on my 86 SEi. and like them. So far i have a concern about the kick stand. I have NO problem with my Marklands on the 86. I might go with mini boards to start and see how I like them
I found Kury's for about $330 new. but i'll need to add for kick stand extension .
Thanks again I'd like to hear more opinions from owners. And I'll write what I end up with.

I have Kurry boards with the road master comfort controls. Boards are pushed forward and down, so no need for kickstand extension and no interference when putting feet down. 29" inseam to boot.

Thanks Tech1

Really? That is a trucking site. I did not know they sold motorcycle accessories.

I agree $700 plus boards cost is costly but if comfortable then it's worth it. Out of my price range now but I will keep it in mind.
Thanks Tech1
