I purchased the OEM from Kawi. They were not my first choice. The Cobras that I wanted were on back order for such a long time I cancelled them. I was able to get the OEM in 2 days. The OEMs look better to me in both positions (up & down) since the chrome and rubber patterns match the the drivers floorboards. No complaints from the wife. She loves them too.

I, too, bought the OEM passenger 'boards from my local dealer...I wanted to match the original rider boards. Very happy with them, and all passengers report greater comfort on long rides. Install was a snap.

Passenger Floorboards

I couldn't agree more, my wife used to get tight legs, calves and sore ankles on long hauls with the pegs, now she can change position of feet, legs and ankles and is so much more comfortable. Pricey, yes but average it out over a few years and it's well worth the comfort, ya know, if mama is happy everyone is happy! Happy New Year everyone!

I have the Kury Constellation's, she loves em (I never plan to find out if I like em). They are adjustable forward and rearward as well as up and down so they can be fine tuned for every rider.

I want to get a pair, I am just not sure about the bracket for the Kury boards vs OEM. My wife is little, but still the oem like a lot more solid.

After having many bikes over many years.......And many of those bikes had pegs rather than boards.....I can honestly say that at this stage in my life I will never go back to pegs on my main touring bike.....If i have a fun bike just 4 fooling around on then yes, but not on my main ride.......that goes 4 passenger as well...........Take care....Terry

For $40 ?!? You done good, bro'. Those CW ones are just over $300 in the catalog, making them some of the most expensive ones I've seen.
