I'm trying to see what's involved in this swap from someone that's done it before. I didn't find much info during a search of the site. Is it as simple as unbolting the foot board and screwing in the peg? Do I need some type of bracket? Does anything have to be adjusted or changed with the shifter and brake?

Thanks for the help!

I just went from foot peg to foot board. The opposite of what your saying. I am referring to the passenger pegs though. Since you didn't specify I will assume you mean the driver. The process couldn't be any simpler on the rear. If you want to do it right you need a torque wrench. Not sure what might be involved on the front.

If you don't mind me asking, why do you want pegs instead of foot boards?

Looks like I left out some important details, sorry about that. This is regarding the driver controls (hence the part about the shifter/brake linkage adjustments). My bike is in a friends shop getting the bobber treatment. The foot peg change would be purely for aesthetics, it's just my preference for the look I'm going after.

My bike is an 06 900 classic by the way.

I thought I read somewhere that the swap between a 900 custom's pegs and the classic footboards was very straight forward. I think you just need the pegs and the mounting brackets, but I'd love confirmation of that before I order anything.

Thanks for the help everyone.

I don't know why you would want to do that. Floorboards are so much more comfortable than foot pegs. With the boards you can move your feet around, but pegs log your feet into one position.

It's just the look I'm going for. I rode sport bikes for 10+ years prior to this. Cruisers are already much more comfortable and sliding my feet around on a peg vs a board doesn't make much of a difference to me.

The bike will be a bobber so the standard ergonomics are already altered. Foot adjustment is a minor detail this far in.
