Trade floorboards for OEM pegs

Post by martyp8813 »



My 2000 Gl1500 SE has aftermarket floorboards with a heel/toe shifter and I believe the brake is aftermarket as well as it does not have a rubber padded heel rest. I would love to do a swap! Even Steven as they say! I’m located in Sparta, Tennessee. Willing to meet at your place within reason as far as distance is concerned. Probably best to reach me via email at martyp8813@gmail.com
I’m in a bit of a time crunch as a trip is planned for the end of the month in which I will be running the Tail of the Dragon. I would like some ride time to get used to a normal shifter.

The scrape when you lean in corners, but more importantly, they encourage the "stomping" of the shifter, which bends shift forks, and the "riding" of the shifter (resting your foot on it) which wears shift forks. Both things require an engine out and case split to repair, which is thousands of dollars (mostly in labor).

My 1500 had them on when I got it, the first thing I did was rip them off and return the footpegs and shifter to OEM.

I would also like to trade my floorboards in favor of the stock shifter on my 2002 GL1800. I have nothing against the floorboards. I'm just not used to them.

Most here want to go the other way.

Bummer! I guess I’m back to searching salvage yards!
