Floorboard Space Maker
You may have heard this comment, maybe even made it yourself. "After I added the Hypercharger (or other fat air cleaner) my foot was being shoved off the floorboard. How's this for a simple solution. Move the floorboard ! Here's how JV did it.
I simply went to the hardware store and got floorboard mount bolts and brake mount bolts 1/2 inch longer and 4 flat washers. The new bolts are not flare head like the stock ones so washers were necessary.
Took a 7/8 x 5 inch shoulder bolt, drilled a hole down the center in the drill press at work ,
cut off the head and disposed of that, cut four(4), 1/2 thick spacers and disposed of the
threaded part. Placed the spacers behind the mounts with the
longer bolts and washers.
This is a very sturdy mod and can hold my 325 lbs. Helps add comfort and ease to operating the brake.
[Gadget Note: Take a look at the photos and note Johnny only had to drill through the top and non threaded portion of the bolt. You can probably do that with a hand drill and vice. If you have a decent hardware store in your area (not Lowes or Home Depot) you should be able to purchase stainless steel spacers that look like this. They are available in a wide range of sizes and lengths.]
