Love how they look, just can鈥檛 justify the cost. Did you find them cheap somewhere?

P.S. love your blue side plates!

I found them for $91 on eBay. Plus $25 for the adapters on eBay. Cost was more than I really wanted to spend but I couldn鈥檛 find them cheaper and I really wanted them for longer rides.

Thanks! The plates are actually purple 鈥渉a ha ha ha鈥 decals. It鈥檚 a Joker theme. Pic does look blue though. haha IMG_2132.jpg

Do you enjoy them? Seems like they sit more flat than what would be a natural riding position. Do they have a way to adjust the angle?

I haven鈥檛 been on the bike with them yet. Just put them on yesterday and it鈥檚 raining pretty hard today. They are very adjustable. The angle can be adjusted. I will probably have to make adjustments after I ride.

Made some adjustments after a ride this morning. Not sure if it鈥檚 easy to tell. Had to adjust the shifter up a little. Also moved the boards forward and angled them up. Feels a lot better.

I tried the minis at first but upgraded to the full size not long after. Found those to be a lot more comfortable, with more space to adjust my foot placement on longer rides... and I'm only an 8.5 US shoe size.

Yeah I can understand that. I can see where the long ones would be more comfortable for moving around. So far I can鈥檛 complain. I like the minis and the way they look.

I had the Mini's on my Vulcan S and they worked GREAT. I had them almost flat and they were very comfortable. The angle is very adjustable. The thing that will need adjusting is the shifter peg. I fiddled with that a few times until I got it right. But overall I like the look a lot better than those ugly Full Size boards that look out of place on a small bike like the Vulcan S. The Indian Scout group loves the Kuryakyn Mini's

I agree. They look great on this bike. I don鈥檛 care for the look of the full size. I may have to adjust a little bit on the right side with the rear brake. Maybe a notch or two. Otherwise, these boards are fantastic. Huge difference from the OEM pegs.

I currently have some mini floorboards on the 04 Vulcan I purchased. However, I dont know if they are Kuryakyn brand or not. Honestly, I'm interested in changing them for pegs somehow, I find I get my foot caught on the board when going to lift my foot up from the ground a light/stopsign. But the only thing I can find in regards to pegs is needing to change to forward controls. Still need to do some more research in regards to it.
