Cobra floorboards are a direct bolt on in place of passenger pegs.  Kuryakan all need adapters - I think because they gear their tooling more to the HD aftermarket.  If you run the right aftermarket exhaust, you can swap your brackets and lower the passenger pegs as well, which will make the wife love you even longer time GI.

Hmmmmm  ???
So you are saying, New exhaust is for her?   Let me see if I can sell that one!   :rolleyes:

Mine insisted I do the new exhaust swap the brackets around and do the cobra floorboards and yes she still loves me 4.5 years later even at our advanced ages ;)

I want lots of love from the wifey!  ;)    Can you recommend which brackets to get. I'm running Cobra Swepts.

Installed the rear floorboards. Looks good but need to figure out where to get the lowering adaptors.

Oh, my butt just clamped tight when you asked that.  I recommended the Cobra's because you wanted a direct mount.  I mentioned flipping the mounting brackets if you had exhaust that would allow it --- can't do it with stock, V&H or Cobra Swepts to name a few (V&H 2-into-2 misses by about 1/4 inch).  If you don't install an exhaust that will allow you to flip the mounting brackets (right to left and left to right), you'll have to go with Kuryakan floorboards and adapters as nobody makes the extensions for our bikes that will accept the Cobra floorboards.

My advice is get new exhaust or NEVER tell the wife that lowering the pegs is an option.

It'll be a great selling point though when you want to put on new exhaust...just make sure it's something that will allow clearance to flip the pegs.  You do that, she love you long time.   O8O

You will need to go with pipes that are curveless any straight pipe set will work.

I recently installed the Cobra Swepts so no pipe changes for me.

I hear ya.  I just put on the V&H 2-into-2s when I realized it missed by about 1/4 inch...that 1/4 inch ended up costing me close to $400 for new floorboards and extensions and adapters.
