Floorboards replacement pads

Post by echinus1988 » Sat Nov 17, 2018 1:03 pm



I might have missed this topic but I need to replace the rubber padding on my floorboards for my 1982 GL1100.

I bought the rubber pads but I am not sure how to properly clean and prepare the floorboards so the new ones will stick properly.

So how do I remove the old adhesive to prepare for putting the new ones on?

Any thoughts on this would be appreciated.

lacquer thinner will remove the old adhesive residue.

That makes sense, I was thinking of an acetone but thinner makes sense. Once I use it will I need to clean the floorboards to remove any residue or just let it thoroughly dry and then put them on?

Great, I can do that. I'll wait for a warm day and take care of both of them.

Thank you for your help everyone!
