    Default Passenger floorboards 2020

    Hi all. My wife is 5 foot tall with short legs. As of now the floor boards are sitting 15 inches from the floor to the middle of the board. She wears her cycle boots and she still would like to bring the boards up a inch. I bought the DK Customs riser kit hoping that will work. It would not allow me to go up an inch do to the side cover. Can anyone tell me what the stock height off the floor the boards sit. Or am I as high as I can go. Better yet is there any other suggestions I can do to raise the boards. As far as I know we have stock boards. Any help will be appreciated.

    Just ran out to the garage and measured on my stock 2023 Tri Glide. Looks like:

    - middle of the metal part of the passenger footboard is 15"

    - top of the rubber is 15 1/2"

    Default passenger floor boards

    I saw a Tri-Glide last weekend that had bracket with a foot peg mounted on it. Above the floor board. The passenger was about 5 ft. tall. It looked adjustable and chrome plated.

    I'm sorry don't know the brand name.

    Default Wife loves DK抯 adjustable passenger pegs

    I have had the DK pegs that Jack Klarich suggested on my Trike for the past three riding seasons. My wife is taller than Redeye4u 𚳳敂. At first she couldn抰 stand them. Thought I had wasted my money. But after a two week four thousand mile trip in 2021 she found out it was great to have more than one foot position when doing a five hundred mile day. Now they are in the up position all the time. Also they were very easy to install.

    Thanks everyone who replied. We were out for a 220 mile ride on Saturday and really need to do something for her. She was not comfortable at all after awhile.

    My wife is 5 also. I raised the stock boards up as far as I could where they bolt to the frame. She was comfortable with that. Then I got the Kuryakyn adjustable pegs noted above. She now has several positions for her feet to get comfortable and has better leverage to keep from sliding on aggressive corners.

    If you get the pegs go over them with red locktite. We lost one in Sturgis 2 years ago. I stopped by the Kuryakyn truck at Black Hills HD and he gave me a new peg. Hard to beat that kind of customer service.
