Kuryakyn Mini-boards assistance?
I just bought the Kuryakyn Premium Mini Boards for my 2009 Custom SE. I picked up the correct rear splined adapters as well.
I thought it should be a pretty easy swap for the stock passenger pegs, but after working through the instructions, I had a few questions...
1. When swapping on a custom, do I need the #10-32x1 SSS piece? I inserted it like the instructions said to do for "floorboards that require a solid mount", but screw it in or out makes no difference.
2. Has anybody else been able to fit the "D" spring washers in the stock peg mount? It seems there's no room for either of the "D" spring washers when I put the splined adapter in the peg mount. Without these washers, the floorboard is pretty loose when in the upright position and looks like it would make noise or fall down going down the road.
3. On most pics on this forum, I've seen the rear floorboards parallel to the ground when lowered. And, when they are folded up, they are flush against the bike. In my case, I can either make them parallel which, when folded up, are angled sharply away from the bike. Or, i can mount them flush to the bike when folded up and, when folded down, they are angled upward at about 30-40 degrees.
Am I just making this overly difficult? I'm not very mechnically minded, but it shouldn't be this hard.... I'm just probably missing something simple.
Would anybody have any suggestions? Or, if somebody with a custom and the same mini-boards could provide an up-close picture (with floorboards folded up and extended), it would be much appreciated.
