Pegs/controls
« on: August 25, 2012, 12:06:39 AM »
Has anyone seen a set of floorboards and heel-toe shifter that might work on the Bullet? I'd like to raise my feet a little to stop dragging my peg in left turns. As it is, my left peg folds nearly straight back.

Indian Enfields often have a heel-toe shifter, direct from the factory I believe; check Ebay or one of the Indian sites like royalenfieldzone or bulletwalas.

As for floorboards I have no idea, but don't understand how they'd afford more clearance than pegs.

edit:  Here are some floorboards; annoyingly, the website requires you to ask for a quote by email rather than just give you the price online--

Not quite sure how they attach, though.

No worries--for what it's worth, my folding rear-sets never scrape like the stock pegs did.

I may just modify the ones I have. The left peg sticks much farther out than the right one. I could just cut down the spacer and go with it. Floorboards are just more comfortable. I had them on my old Harley touring bike and an old Kawi KZ1000P. That and higher bars and the ol' Bullet would be much more comfy.

I'd love to find a set of boards to put on Fiona, to keep the heel of my right boot from melting on the exhaust pipe.  Has anyone adapted a set of boards to a US-spec C5 successfully?  Resoling Doc Martens is bloody expensive...
