this is my trike below, I have put baker wings on, hand,middle and the trike wings...they work great for keeping air off of you, but do nothing for the heat on your feet...are they any fix for the roasting of my feet short of removing the floorboards ?????



thanks

Switch to the standard GL foot wings .... they still direct the air around the kit and protect the fenders just about as well from bugs and stuff as the billboard Trike specific units but allow a bit more of a breeze. For me the Trike units blocked too much air. :yes1:

Dave I had the same problem. Fortunately, I have really bad knees so I couldn't ride long with my feet on the stock GL1800 foot pegs. I installed this set of Kuryakyn pegs and now ride quite comfortable. Because I have pretty short legs I installed the new pegs just like the picture shows. The fit me well....

Hope this helps...

"...any fix for the roasting of my feet short of removing the floorboards ?????" That would help. Having owned trikes with and without, I will not buy another with them. They are 'cute' but perform no useful function IMO.

Her You are. This was taken right after I brought the trike home but the few changes I've made are just cosmetic. :coffee1: :coffee1:

You might have something with that length observation... For some reason my left foot gets hotter then the right what little I do have my feet on the oem pegs.
