Who's using floor boards...?
I am looking into getting floor boards to replace the OEM front foot pegs.
Is anyone with a 250 using them?
If you are, where did you get them, and how much did they cost?
Do you like them?
Also what are the dimensions (W " X L" ) and are they flat or angled up a little?

Thanks, guys...

Definitely on my 1300. They let me tap my feet to the music in my head.
There is great need for a sarcasm font.

RE: Who's using floor boards...?
The 950 is the first one that I have had with boards, still getting used to them. I've always ridden horses with foot in the stirrup, heals down and when on the 250 and the 650, no boards, heals down. Teaching the old dog new tricks here.
I do have a question: I have a size 8 shoe and wonder how a person with a big foot, say size 11 puts their shoe in between the heel and toe rocker? There ain't a lot of room there.
Never tell someone more than they are willing to hear.

I can barely fit mine under my board with a size 10 with my cowboy boots... Use the heel shifter alot. I'm sure they can be adjusted just haven't looked at it yet.

Btw I like my boards vs pegs except they rub pretty quickly on my 950.. ;)

I did find some that said it fit the 250 but my flip flops were bigger in dimensions .

My 1100 is the first time I ever had floor boards with the heel shifter, took time to get use to but I love them. Am going to get passenger floor boards soon for when my wife and daughter ride.

I did find some on e-bay but the size was smaller than my flip flop. .... really. (10" X 4") for $75 or so...
If I got these I would have to bolt a plate on top to make them bigger...

Also I would rather not order from Hong Kong....

Is any one at all using them on the 250 ?

I saw a video of a bloke making a set for a 250. I'll try and find it for you.

Nearly all of my rides have had floorboards - only my Kwaka 1100 had pegs - I also have a firm grip on Terra Firma and have found using the rocker shifter on the 1300 no problem. However, if it is a problem then I think that a simple extension, giving, say another 25mm (inch) and utilising the hole where the peg comes out now would cure any room dramas!

Here you go, I apologise as it was for 650 not a 250, but I think the principles would be the same.

Hope this helps you out.

I have a 11-1/2 to 12 foot have floor boards toes are under shifter and brake peddle that's why I don't really use the rocker much I kinda like the pegs better.

Yeah, I saw that one...he did a good job for sure , but I don't think I have the tools he had....a router and a band saw being some of them from the looks of it.
But something like that would sure work.
thanks

Yeah, I ride as well and with the balls of my feet on the stirrup and heels down , toes up....legs front...that's how I learned it...makes me want to
copy the same position while riding the bike.
