floorboard relocation- forward position   CustomModifications/Projects

I fabricated a bracket to move my V-Star 1100 Classic floorboards forward a bit. I used 1/4" steel plate for the bracket, and rod extenders (coupling nuts) to extend the brake and shift rods. I was worried about the strength of 1/4" rolled steel, that maybe it would flex, twist, or bend, so I simply used the front floorboard mounting hole on the frame for the rear hole on the mount, and the new bracket holds the front floorboard mount. I was able to move the floorboards forward about 2" and increase the angle slightly. Now that it's done, I believe I could have gone farther- basically drill 4 holes, not just 3. I'll attach some pictures.

Feedback please? What do you think?

It's better, but I could have pushed them out farther, I think.

Here's a picture of the bracket, just to make things clear...

You certainly could have gone further ... I had 6" extensions on mine.   So much more comfortable.

I have engine guards on our bike to which there are footrests attached. The footrests are set up in such a way as to slightly extend my foot position about 6” forward. My feet slide easily forward and back for a variety of comfortable positions.

I Bought My Extensions From Motorcycle Enhancements That Moved The Floorboards 4 inches Forward and A Very Comfortable Rise In The Front. You May Want To Give Them A Looksee the Next Chance You Have. 

Good Luck Pal,
