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.
looks good. if it fits you and you like is all which matters.
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.
