I was using the Kuryakyn 4328 mini boards with drop mounts but I wanted more support so I went with the 4351 folding floorboards. The last picture is of the mini board compared to the new board.

The 4351’s bolt right up to the OEM Goldwing mounts? I had those on a Sportster once. Love them. I’ll buy if they bolt right up. Curious also about your brake cover.

Easy does it in the corners with those on there. Hopefully the hard mounted hinge won't hit until long after the folding floorboard.

4351 with comfort drop mounts are my combination also. I consider foot position and room the weakest point of this bike. (the only weak point) These work for me.

Have you got a part number for the Kuryakn comfort drop mounts? I can't find anything using those words on their website.

Curious who makes that brake pedal cover?

It is a leftover from my previous wing, I cut it down and fiddled with it to make it fit, it is still a little bulky, I have a new one on order.

I have about 4500 miles with the 4351 kit without a touchdown, the new boards are 3/4" wider, I don't see a problem but if there is I can adjust them higher or go with the stock height adapters.:grin2:

Bob2002, have you found/seen a way to mount the old fulllsize Kury floorboards? So far, they are the only large ones I have ever seen! All the new style are kind of small & boring? JMHO.

No I have not, if you had a set it would be easy to remove the H/T shift and go from there but I for one would not want to spend that much money and fail. My 4328 and 4351 are low dollar investments that both work:grin2:

Bob, I have a full (like new) set from my other GL1800! I love those floorboards! That’s why I want to re-install them onto my ‘18 DCT Tour!

So what is stopping you?

According to Kuryakyn, they will not fit the newer bike! I was hoping someone might have found a workaround to MAKE them work!

We both know that without asking, I would start by taking the foot peg mount off and see how far off the mounting points are if there is clearance. The 4351 boards I'm using give a ton of foot support much like the boards you like so much and way easier to install.

mrjava, they look promising! Does anyone know the size?
If I remember correctly they are 5.5 long x 4.5 at the widest point, not much larger then the Kury mini boards
