I installed new floorboards on my 14 SG. The right floorboard barley hits the exhaust shield so I order the harley goodie extensions. My question since it will push it out an inch ImageUploadedByMO Free1411520712.493826.jpg ImageUploadedByMO Free1411520749.738684.jpg will it make it look awkward or dumb?

Thanks guys, not a bad $70 investment on ebay. I had to do little modifications to the front support bracket, grind the top down so I could get the bolt through and hit it with some Paint. I threw them on and noticed it rubbed the heat shield down in little spot after I fired the bike up. Was worried an inch would look awkward but we shall see. Anyone interested in these boards they have them on eBay guys has tons of them new and my gut get lucky on bidding.

I did the same thing but made mine and they are about an inch if I remember right. They look fine but you will be draggin them alot more. I drag em every time I ride just be careful because your pushing the solid mount bracket out also and you dont want to take weight off the rear tire in a lean = not good.

If the truth be known, the floorboards should come with these extensions installed as stock parts. As far as looking bad or out of place, how many people have you ever seen walking around the bikes at any stop and paying very close attention to the floorboards? I have never owned any Harley newer than my present 2004 RK and even when I rode my old shovels with the Krylon paint jobs and black duct tape on the seats, noone said a word to my face. If they had, I would of laughed and told them what my father told me when I bought my first 1949 Chevrolet. Remember this Son, A LOW CLASS RIDE BEATS THE HELL OUT OF ANY HIGH CLASS WALK ON ANY DAY!!

Thanks for the reply. I shouldn't be worried about looks, but this is by far the best bike I have ever owned and my first Harley so I try my best to make it look good. After they were installed and I rode around some it made a huge difference. Your right, I never say anything bad about anyone's bike I am just thankful others get to enjoy riding as much as me.
