That will be for the BCR3 most likely Robert

But it looks like I might be working out in your area a couple of times this October. Lets try to get together.
look forward to meeting her and seeing changes to the bike. definitely let me know when you're going to be in town!

For anyone doing this mod....here is a tip.

When cutting the mount to fit the adapter, cut the bottom portion leaving the top intact. This maintains the most strength and provides a nice flat surface for the top of the adapter to rest against so it doesn't move. I didn't think of this until after the first side was done, but luckily got it right. So, your cut will look like a slightly upward cut(back to front) on the bottom, parallel to the top.

Seems like it'd be easy enough to pick out the culprit just by looking at everybody's shoes.

Any suggestions on how I can adjust the SUzuki passenger floorboards for my 2008 C90. My wife finds them too high. I realize the exhaust is right there, but I am willing to try to improve/change things to make it better for her.

I don't have a C90 or one to look at. But a quick google search came up with these:

Thanks Capt Creole. Checked out the site but I think that they are just for pegs. I have the Suzuki passenger floorboards.

That's what I get for trying to help on something I don't know anything about

Since I don't have them and can't see them, I don't know what to suggest besides try the VL1500/C90 forums to see if they have come up with a mod for this.
