Good idea,but I would be a little worried they would drag a bit earlier then without,when leaning hard into corners.I like thier Back support pad idea they have on thier web site.

Here's a dumb question. Will they fit the rear passenger floorboards?

ISO grips // RacnRay throttle mod
Thunder air kit for stock cover // decorative side plate // throttle body gasket
V&H Twin Slash slip-ons // DynoJet PCV w/ ignition + DavidSheek's map (modified)
Kuryakyn Longhorn Offset Dually ISO-pegs // Mirror extensions
Marvellas rear passenger foot pegs // grab rails
RAM cup holder // GPS holder // Phone holder // Camera mount
Garmin Nuvi 765T GPS // Sena SMH10 Bluetooth headset/intercom
Russell Day Long seat w/ backrest

I would image that the upward pitch of the floorboards would keep that from happening. Kury makes a similar product but it is quite a bit more expensive.

I would defiantly consider these as an option for highway pegs.

Speaking of scraping, how far do you have to lean the VV over to have that happen?

1985 Honda Nighthawk 650 (First Bike)
2004 Vulcan 1500 Classic (First Big Bike)
2007 Vulcan 1600 Meanstreak (Love Affair)
1999 Yamaha 1100 V-Star Custom (Right Price at the Time)
2008 V2K Classic (Favorite Vulcan)
2014 HD Ultra Limited (Bells and Whistles)

Ya Kury is ridiculous as far as price goes. they do look pretty nice though. Dont know how far I would haf to lean it but if I do, luckily the floorboards deflect a couple inches also. I really like the V2K Classic U got. Nice bike

Thanks, the reason I ask is I have been playing with the idea of a VV or a Vaq to add. The V2K is a nice bike but it is not hard to find the floorboards in the pavement.

Looks like they'd be perfect for a short legged guy like me. And much more affordable than kuryakyn.

Airlite Crash Bar Chaps
Kuryakyn Offset Highway Pegs
Vulcan Emblem on Passenger Back Rest

Kuryakyn Power Point

This probably doesn't help much, but I had a Nomad 1600 that would regularly scrape the floorboards. I have yet to scrape the VV even in the roundabouts. However, just about every magazine review I've read on the VV complains about the ground clearance. I've never experienced a problem, but your mileage may vary.
