Vance and Hines Dresser Duals

Ok, so I've installed the Vance and Hines headers, Klock Werks mufflers, after my first long ride I noticed a slight squeaking sound coming from the front right. It turns out it is the heat shield rubbing on the inside of the rear floor board bracket. I loosened the heat shield but it's already all the way forward and rotated as far as it will go. Has anyone else had this issue....

Will the floor board relocation kit eliminate this?

First off (can't help it) it's a "foot board", you can always adjust it up.

I'm running the V&H Dresser Duals w/Rineharts. I'm not seeing where your rear foot pegs/floorboard will make contact. I have heard of the V&H dresser duals doing this with various combinations. The parts guy at the local HD even had a spacer just for this situation. Can you shoot a photo where it makes contact? For reference, my rear footpegs are at the highest position.

Did you install the spacers that comes with the exhaust? Had the same problem but on the front bracket. Ended up ordering Harley Goodies foot board extenders. Did however loosen everything up and finally got everything too line up.

Looking at it again and mine was rubbing on the rear bracket as well. Harley Goodies will definitely fix the problem but don't think you should need them but puts you in a more comfortable position anyway.

I loosened up everything again and moved everything as far as I can and i now have 1/8" clearance... Not much but no more squeaking from rubbing... Hopefully I won't have this problem return.....
