The floorboards came in for Max’s bike. The were not designed for this 800 Intruder. They attach different. Take the two screws out from under the peg itself and remove the rubber from the peg shaft. Two bolts in the floorboards go through those holes in the peg shaft and attach that way. Few problems as I said, were not meant for this bike.
1, I had to drill one hole on each side because the bolt was too big.
2. The factory pegs on this bike are angled up. Required me to put a big wrench on each one and bend it with my foot. Those things are STRONG. 1-1/4" wrench had a big bow in it. Thought the wrench was going to break but it didn't.
3. Controls were too low because of the nose up angle the floorboards were at. Required me to drop the carriage about 3/8" (sub frame under the bike that attaches the rear brake, foot pegs and kick stand). That's as far as I could drop it without reworking the rear brake, but it was just enough with a little brake and shifter adjustment. Might put a brake pedal cover on just for a little extra positive engagement.
4. The end of the shifter is a little bent down. Have to fix that tomorrow. Unfortunately, the only way to get the shifter off is to take all 8 bolts back out of the carriage and drop it. Fun, fun...
What it looks like after the work.
Probably have to blow up this pic below to see the boogered up shifter.
Once I get that shifter bent back, it’ll be about as comfortable as that bike can possibly get to ride. I’m not a huge fan of light bikes. Every time you hit a bump on the highway you bounce off the seat and have to readjust. It’s not just this bike, my first street bike did it too. Just the nature of a light bike.
Got the plates for it in the saddle bags but I rode it to town and filled up the tank. I’ll take it on a 70 mile ride tomorrow, see how a longer haul is.
